The healthcare industry continues to evolve with mergers, acquisitions and spinoffs. Communicators play a key role in helping employees navigate those changes. In 2013, AbbVie’s communications team met this challenge head on when AbbVie separated from Abbott Laboratories to become a new biopharmaceutical company.


This session will highlight strategies for communicating during times of transition in your business, ensuring that your leaders, your people managers and your employees are well prepared and engaged in the process, including how to:


  • Build a crescendo of conversations before, during and after “day 1”

  • Leverage branding and communication to build excitement, create a common global experience and define our new company’s culture
