Health Strategy Network Conference Series Continues in Australia After Successful North American Event

Pan-Pacific Conference to take place July 23-25, 2003 in Sydney, Australia

Providence, RI, March 3, 2003 – Fresh off its North American program launch, Health Strategy Network, a division of Health Strategy Consulting (HSC), announces the continuation of its global conference series with its Pan-Pacific Conference in Sydney Australia, July 23-25, 2003. Like its North American counterpart, this conference is designed for robust networking and unequalled knowledge sharing.

Participants at the Blue Mountain Resort event north of Toronto, Canada from February 20-22, 2003 participated in four case studies featuring Nestle USA, Natrol, Inc., Nurture, Inc. and Cadbury Schweppes/Snapple. Steve Allen, Vice-President, Business Development, Nestle USA, appreciated the “great in-depth look and analysis of some important and fundamental business questions.” He added, “The event also provided a great social opportunity to interact with key people in our industry.” Elliott Balbert, President & CEO of Natrol noted, “This case presentation was innovative, and after countless industry events, it provided such a refreshing approach to have executives from all levels dissecting each case, providing definitive concepts and ideas that had real application in our own businesses. In fact, as one of the event case studies, it was worth tangible business value having our peers view our strengths and landmines. Kudos to HSN.”

For the HSN Australian event now confirmed for July, this Pan-Pacific Conference will follow the same basic design, with business case sessions presented over two days, dealing with pertinent industry issues, the group to be reunited for dinner and activities designed to maximize networking opportunities. In order to make the most of the time together, each attendee will be provided with detailed case studies in advance of the Conference, which will be examined in the group discussions.

“We are very pleased with our success at the North American event – we had a great turn out of smart, accomplished people, and the group engaged in insightful, detailed discussions that are not equaled elsewhere in our industry. We are excited about the event in Sydney, where we will be leveraging a combination of regional and global industry knowledge to analyze business cases in the Australasia market,” said Tom Clough, Managing Director of HSC. This event is scheduled to be held at the Sydney Marriott in downtown Sydney. Bruce Oakley, Principal of HSC Australia said, “We are committed to this market and providing an event with unmatched sharing of industry data and insight.”
