"As an early member of the Council, I have had the good fortune to participate in and enjoy the growth and evolution of the Medical Device Supply Chain Council. The Council provides an outstanding forum for staying current on the challenges facing our industry, exposure to best practices, access to supply chain thought leaders and engagement with the full business spectrum inclusive of healthcare providers and distributors. The networking element is significant as well. As a community, we are able to leverage each other to get prompt answers, insights and feedback. The Council is a stimulant to help me to advance my business while also providing a developmental opportunity for the next level leaders I encourage to participate from my team."

"Edwards Lifesciences has been a member of the Council since its early days and I personally have participated for about 8 of my 10 years at Edwards. I find it an invaluable way to stay on top of industry developments and to network and discuss key industry topics with my peers at other leading Med Device companies. One great way to guage the value of the Council and the relationships that are formed there, is to see many members transition from one Med Device company to another and yet continue to return to the Council, many times bringing their new company into the membership. I come away from each bi-annual meeting with a refreshed perspective and motivation, and I periodically check in with Kevin and my peers on the Council for input and discussion on supply chain topics. I highly recommend to any Med Device Supply Chain leader to participate in the Council, you will wish you had found it earlier."

"Over the past 8 years Terso has found great value in being a sponsor of the Medical Device Supply Chain Council. At each meeting we gain valuable insight into the key opportunities, challenges and best practices within this market segment. The knowledge that we gain during these discussions enables Terso to provide more industry focused solutions and consultation to our clients."

I have been an active member of the Medical Device Supply Chain Council for about ten years. Supply Chain executives have very limited time to expand their peer network and learn best practices, so that is why the Council has proven to be so valuable to all the members. The Council membership is large enough to represent a good cross section of the medical device industry while also being small enough to allow for true peer to peer interactions. The Council’s agendas are always fresh and relevant to issues I deal with on a daily basis, but also provide opportunities to think more strategically and longer term. I recommend you consider membership in the Medical Device Supply Chain Council.”

"I was first exposed the Medical Device Supply Chain Council in 2013. After visiting the first meeting I realized I had been missing an opportunity to network with peers that are recognizing and addressing similar risks and opportunities. I had visited other conferences previously that were intended to be Medical Device end to end supply chain specific; however, they felt less personal and more focused on selling me something. As a result of my participation in the council, and now being on the advisory board, I have a broad network of peers that I can reach out to when addressing opportunities within my own business."

"The Med-Tech space is fast paced.  Constant changes in regulations, technology, and global influences can be a challenge to not only stay informed on, but more importantly stay ahead of.  I have found MedSC to be head-and-shoulders above other options to help me stay tapped into executive level highlights to guide where I want/need to dig deeper.  The council has also vastly enriched my personal network of peers, we have been able to develop relationships to the point of acting as advisors to one another (in non-competing areas).  Additionally, the quantity and quality of vendors engaged in the council are tightly managed to ensure only the most value-add of relationships with potential product, and service providers.  Look no further, you’ll not find more return for such a minor time and membership investment."

"Rhenus Contract Logistics has been a long-time sponsor of the Medical Device Supply Chain Council representing the European market. The Council provides a unique setting in which to share ideas, concerns and lessons learned intertwined with multiple networking opportunities. It has been an invaluable resource enabling us to keep up with ongoing market trends, regulations and industry news that may affect our business or the business of our partners. As a mainly European third-party logistics provider with a predominately USA client base, membership in the Council is an integral part of the overall strategic plan within the healthcare logistics sector of Rhenus."
