Master the Matrix and Influence in the Healthcare Space
You’re in a Matrix, whether you realize it or not. Matrix roles are everywhere in the healthcare industry and when you can understand the dynamics that exist within the matrix, you can master anything. And then there is Influence. It doesn’t happen on a schedule, and it can’t be calculated on a spreadsheet. It’s also becoming increasingly uncoupled from formal authority as represented on organizational charts. But in modern cross-functional organizations, influence is how decisions get made, how changes are implemented and ultimately how things get done.
Develop the ability to build strong, trusting partnerships across the healthcare industry that enable you to work effectively and to influence beyond the lines of direct authority. This engaging keynote and action-learning workshop will allow participants to:
- Pinpoint role conflicts on a macro and micro level and outline required actions
- Diagnose personal decision-making challenges and structure key decisions
- Build influence skills in the healthcare manufacturing industry; identify influence opportunities and apply influence tactic

“Networking with other HMMC members has been invaluable! This has benefited me personally in my leadership, my decision-making, and the ability to feel completely comfortable discussing with fellow members anything about my business. It is a group without judgment. It is a group of problem solvers, solution finders, and friends, lifelong friends. It is my safe place to be transparent about what I deal with in my business and know I'm with the best group of experts in our industry.”
"As a new member of HMMC for the past year, I’ve come to quickly value the industry education, peer to peer knowledge sharing and perspective gained from leaders in the healthcare industry!”
“When I first got into our industry, I looked at who worked best with distribution, and the answer was Midmark and Welch Allyn. They were members of HMMC and always attended the conferences. Two ultimate members of the Distribution Hall of Fame, one from each company told me that they thought HMMC would be good for me, and I would be good for it. I joined and have been a member ever since. Even I ended up in the Distribution Hall of Fame. Is there a correlation there? You tell me.”
"HMMC provides unique opportunities that allow me to strengthen my professional network and industry knowledge, while bringing valuable insights to help in my day-to-day career responsibilities.”
"We like to bring our sales and marketing leadership together to reflect and learn with other commercial leaders in the industry, and HMMC enables this through well thought out professional events."
