The MSL Society meeting gives me the opportunity to interact with MSLs from around the globe, to share my experiences with current and aspiring MSLs and to learn new skills at the same time. Our role is always evolving and it is a tremendous opportunity to be there and learn from the best in the business. I look forward every year to attend to see friends and to network with new aspiring MSLs for mentorships and future opportunities to advance their career.
