AVT Life Sciences

Helping clients build business and people leadership competencies of the highest quality for growth across the life sciences industries

What we do
Program types and participant target groups. We design and deliver programs that targets talents, senior executives, divisions across the value chain or the organization as such.

Cascades Programs

Large-scale learning and development initiatives that reach executives and managers at several levels. Content is aligned and methods adapted for cost-efficiency and reach across target populations. Often kicked off with an executive committee workshop scoping.


Faculty-lead or blended learning programs for talents that have to carry the future business development of the organization. Intense program with in-depth application to real-life business development cases for further pursuit beyond the program. Can be seen as a substitute to an external management consulting service, but here capabilities are built inside and with the unique sensitivity to culture and business positioning from employees themselves.

Senior Executives

Faculty-led in-person or live-on-line experiences for senior executive populations, designed to address key organizational business challenges and build insight for future positioning.
