Ad Board with Clinical Experts
We often have requests to recruit for advisory board with KOLs. These Ad boards can be based in a single market or, more usually, international in nature.
Challenge : Our client was looking to hold an international Advisory Board with clinical experts in Opioid Induced Constipation in London with 10 to 12 clinical Key Opinion Leaders from a range of European markets. The advisory board was to be 6 hours in duration and conducted in English. The end client was to attend the board too.
Process : We proposed that the Advisory Board be held near Heathrow to minimise travel time. As the board attendees were not blinded to the client we were required to obtain signed contracts with the respondents between the end client and the respondent. We worked with our client to identify suitable candidates.
Outcome : We had 2 months lead time for the project and succeeded in recruiting 12 respondents for the Advisory board from seven different EU markets. Whilst the client provided a list of some potential attendees the majority recruited were free found. All respondents were nationally recognised Key Opinion Leaders who had published in the relevant area, with the majority also acting as clinical advisers to payor bodies in their home countries. We arranged all logistics for the respondents travel and the venue, also arranging accommodation as required for some respondents. All contracts were signed and returned to the clients legal team in good time.
Feedback : Both our client and the end client were extremely complimentary about the quality of respondents recruited, their ability to engage in an English language discussion, and especially about the performance of our recruitment and project management team.
