The best advice

Asynchronous conversations reduce time-pressure by giving participants more thinking time, allowing them to deliberate over questions, digest the information and craft carefully-considered responses.

Life Science Company Feedback

Associate Director, Medical Affairs - Asynchronous DAB with a live Webinar (Synchronous)
“medCrowd is easy to use, the participants and our team thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The DAB worked better than a face to face solution - learnings are easier to gather and the insights remain more concise than in a face to face event.”

Doctor, Infectious Diseases, Mexico
“It has been an incredibly productive way to learn and share knowledge. Just by reading what the experiences of other centres have been and the insight of the collaborators is more than enough to say it has been a successful story in times of difficulties.”
