LONDON, February 21, 2011 - Demand planning in turbulent market conditions is challenging, doing it
while other people are throwing different figures at you is even worse, and
getting the forecast 100% correct is impossible - so how can we ensure our

the situation with the generic companies is really unique as not only do they
face the challenges of entering emerging markets but they have such an impact
on the demand planning of other pharmaceutical companies as well. On top of
that, Jeremy is a real expert in his field - we're all looking forward to
hearing what he has to say!"
