The Best Consultants – A brand promise from PharmaRelations to our clients
The main asset of a specialized consulting group is of course the qualities of the consultants.
“I and my colleagues in PharmaRelations are convinced that we have the best consultants in the Life Science industry and this is a promise that we give to our clients, without blushing, nothing is more important to them than this”, says Fredrik Anjou, CEO of PharmaRelations.
How do we define the qualities of our consultants? The starting point is obviously to have the necessary expertise and the specialist knowledge that the assignment requires. But it is a starting point only. There are many other factors that matter. A consultant must be a positive and constructive problem solver, a good listener and understand what is needed in a particular assignment. Integrity is an important quality in a consultant as are flexibility, drive and courage. The willingness to act as a change agent in the organization when this is in demand, requires both courage and integrity.
Finally, the support from the consulting company is of great importance, how much support does the consultant get from the home office, how much contact and follow up is there between the consultant, the client and the company? How well defined and communicated is the expected outcome?
