Regular inspiration: Monthly digital meetings that allow HRBPs to explore new topics, learn from life sciences HR thought leaders and ask mission critical questions about current and future concerns.
Essential resources: Access to a dedicated resource hub which provides a wealth of practical, informative material to help accelerate life sciences HRBP’s capability development.
Peer connections: Members plug into a ready made, curated, industry specific network of peers who are just as motivated to learn from each other, providing instant access to a new network for time-poor HRBPs.
In-person engagement: Each year an exclusive HRBP development session and dinner will be hosted in Boston to which the HRBP cohort is invited to offer the opportunity for in-person collaboration and inspiration.
The minimum membership length is 12 months to allow members to experience the full benefits of being a member. However, at the end of the initial 12-month period and every 12 months after, you will have an opportunity to renew your membership for the upcoming year’s involvement.
Member companies include Apellis, Biomarin, Precision Biosciences, Grunenthal, BioSciences, Recursion, Insmed, Avrobio, Biontech, Sumitovant Biopharma, Assemblybio, and SpringWorks.
HRBPs are busy people, and this networks’ goal is to ensure that the time spent within meetings educates, inspires and pays back through time saved.
Time commitments should be less than 2 hours per month. With meetings lasting 90 minutes and some prep work and other interactions taking 5-10.

Each year an exclusive HRBP development session and dinner will be hosted in Boston to which the HRBP cohort is invited to offer the opportunity for in- person collaboration and inspiration.
The 120+ biopharma organizations currently part of the 10+ active Searchlight networks have told us that they view participation in this year-round dialogue as a natural extension of the scientific discourse that takes place at the annual flagship conferences and makes no distinction between the conversations that might happen onsite over a coffee or in a workshop and those which occur online in a cornerstone meeting.
Furthermore, the issues discussed in Searchlight meetings focus on pre-IP areas, and no one is expected to share anything they are uncomfortable sharing.

Each meeting is led by expert, industry specific ‘mentors’ experienced in solving problems, with success measured by how many practically applicable solutions members leave each meeting with.
The situation: The members will define the format ahead of time to ensure each meeting delivers maximum value. Plus, we’ll add new faces to the meetings as the network expands to provide an even greater diversity of perspectives can be shared among the group.
The discussion: HRBPs break out into working groups containing the most relevant members (grouped by company size) to challenge each other and develop their ideas whilst coaching each other to think differently.
The action: Members return to the main plenary to share their groups’ key takeaways as the mentor isolates the most actionable strategies and provides a Q&A opportunity for further tactical and strategic questions.
Participants are encouraged to capture and share (with both each other and with you) the key actions they take away from each meeting along with how they plan on applying them immediately.
We know that HRBPs can’t always predict and block out meetings within their diary so work with them to minimize the chances of missing meetings and, in some circumstances, allowing colleagues to attend in their place.
Following each meeting, the presentations from each mentor and pre-meeting resources will be shared on the Searchlight community platform so those unable to attend can revisit key themes.
The frequency of these meetings has been specifically chosen by members to allow for them to feel that missing the occasional one doesn’t drastically change the value they gain from membership.
Unless indicated otherwise, Searchlight memberships include one seat per meeting, which is fully interchangeable within your organization to ensure everyone's voice is heard within the time we have together. However, there are occasions throughout the year when we will invite you to participate with a subject matter expert, depending on the subject we'll be discussing.
Each meeting has been tailored to address key business critical challenges that members have told us they experience. Each mentor brought in to lead a session has been chosen for their specific experiences within these areas.
A limited number of ‘associate partner’ (guest) places are available at quarterly meetings for those interested in joining a network.

No, but we ask members to be prepared to address the case studies set within each meeting.
Meetings often utilize case studies or published data to anchor discussions which are, in many cases, provided by members. However, discussions will remain in a pre-competitive space.
Searchlight meetings will focus on a pre-competitive space; therefore, an NDA is not required.
