Benefits of Hiring a Pharmaceutical Consultancy Firm

The pharmaceutical industry is a highly competitive field as new drugs are developed weekly and each company wants to get theirs on the market first. This is one area where a consultant would be able to help your business, but there is more to being a successful pharmaceutical company than simply getting your products on the market. Your brands and products need support from doctors, insurers and community pharmacies to get prescribed at all and this can be hard to achieve. If doctors do not know about your products and you fail to market it to them properly, how will they know to prescribe it? A GP will only prescribe a drug they have been sold on, and pharmaceutical consultants can help you with this.

In fact, pharmaceutical consultancy is designed to advise companies on every aspect of their work, to make them successful and to keep them up to date with regulations and laws governing the pharmaceutical industry. From developing a product to making sure it lasts on the market, consultants will work with you to make sure you are getting the most profit from the money you have spent.

Areas that pharmaceutical consultants specialise in include licensing, brand management, business development, clinical development, medical affairs, sales and trade including product distribution. Whilst you may be experienced with some or none of these areas, the consultants will have specialised in one field and thus will be able to give you the best knowledge in the business. They make it their duty to keep one step ahead of product launches and new regulations so that they can advise their clients the best way to make money whilst staying within the law.

Clinical development is especially important in today’s pharmaceutical industry as resources are remaining stagnant but the size and demands of clinical processes are increasing. To make the most out of what you have got, pharmaceutical consultants will assess your clinical practices and formulate new procedures that are more cost effective and efficient. In all aspects of consultancy, their mission is geared towards making your business and products achieve their full potential.

There is no way that a pharmaceutical company can keep up to date with every new product on the market, the regulations that accompany them, developing their clinical trials, promoting their brand and actually selling products. That is why pharmaceutical consultancy is a good choice to make. Keeping you abreast of developments in the industry and improving your business potential.

Changes For Success in Consultative Selling in the Veterinary Industry

Who changed the world when we were not looking? What happened to the days when people bought from us because our Brand did the most national advertising? What happened to the days when after we bought a few lunches or maybe one happy hour, we simply got the order?

Let’s just face the unfortunate facts. We have a host of competitors, and the face of the marketplace is changing dramatically on a daily basis. We hear continually about consultative selling, but don’t have time to complete the growing ‘to do’ list for today, let alone study the true meaning of trying to change the way most of us have sold in the past.

The opposite of consultative selling is transactional selling. OK that seems simple enough, a base price (usually a really low price) for a simple good or service, nothing more, nothing less. Consider it a ‘commodity-like’ mentality. If we want simply to buy ten gallons of gas, how important is the relationship, the service, the facility? Do we need a consultant-like partner?

Or perhaps we need a simple item or book from eBay or Amazon, or any other of the hosts of internet suppliers… If we might think that our organization can survive based on price and transactional selling we might also want to begin to get familiar with the internet job boards and dust off the Resume, because if we are transactional salespeople we simply cannot compete with the Internet.

Pricing 24/7, basic product and/or service information at one’s fingertips regardless of time zones, weekends, family responsibilities or personal preference or any of the things that might keep us from being accessible to 100% of our existing clients as well as 100% of any potential clients 24 hours a day, every day.

To survive we need to provide a level of expertise significantly beyond the product or service itself; to grow and succeed we need to be a consultant in everything we do. If you have already realized this epiphany keep reading and the metaphors may bring back happy memories. If we were to conduct a self-evaluation in the following three key areas, how might you stack up? Do you want to play?

Consultants Value Time as Money

Have you ever looked at your time as money? The first part of the analysis has to do with a quick review of your time. How much was used inefficiently? If you were a pure consultant how might you activities of last week changed. And if you are still reading, the next question is potentially even more personal. In the time you spent with Vet Doctors or other clients last week, in person or on the telephone, were it time that clearly 1) Saved them money, 2) Made them money, 3) Increased their potential to be successful? Do you feel the new standards start to tighten?

How would you quantify the value you brought to the table in each of those communications individually? If all this is getting a little heavy for you let’s lighten it up with a metaphor about a ‘friend’ of yours that also sells to this same market. This ‘Friend’ finishes up around 3 pm at an Animal Clinic in a small town, too late in the day travel to go to the next prospect, so ‘Friend’ stops in to see another Vet that he had received an order from last week. Who happens to be only about eight miles away.

Upon entering the office, Friend stumbles on some language such as… “Hi, I was in the area, and I thought I would stop in”…actually more of a social call. Friend simply does not realize the damage he has done. In fact those days are over, and ‘Friend’ missed the train. The message Friend has actually `sent is…”Oh, buy the way obviously my time is not really important, so I thought I might stop by and waste some of your time as well…”

And then ‘Friend’ wonders why he or she cannot get calls returned promptly or even at all.
If you were to help ‘Friend’, how might you revise his/her approach to be a little more consultative in nature, remember we are still not referring to you, or anybody you know. Imagine ‘Friend’ viewing himself as a Consultant rather than a salesperson or in case you are a child of the 80′s a Business Development Specialist. Friend now understands that time is money. Friend now understands that his role is far more than a supplier but an expert in the industry not just limited to his latest brochure.

Friend is prepared for just this type of situation. Friend spends about 2 hours every week reviewing trade journals, and Google searches on the industry and in his specific niche. He has printed and copied two or three articles and placed them in different folders applicable to different kinds of clients. Perhaps ‘Friend’ has stashed an article on internet marketing for a young new office, or perhaps a current review of TPLO for those considering moving into surgery.

Now, back to our scenario. It is 3 pm and Friend finishes at the first client. He calls the client a few miles away and the call goes something like this. ” I realize Dr. Kelly is busy, and I really do not need to see him, his voicemail would be great. Dr. Kelly, this is ‘Friend’. I realize how busy you are and although I am in the area, I do not want to bother you . But, I was doing some research and ran across an article that you may not have seen yet regarding the very thing you were thinking about in your expansion. I made a copy, highlighted the key points, and just wanted you to know I was thinking about your continuing success and wanted to share this information.”

In a re-cap, Friend understands the value of time. Friend understands even if his product might be perceived as a commodity with many competitors, he (Friend) is the difference maker which is not a responsibility to be taken lightly. And finally, Friend has positioned himself as an expert resource. On the next cycle Friend calls for an appointment and Dr. Kelly appreciates that if Friend is in fact scheduling a personal visit, then there must be something to be discussed that will have a good chance of helping his practice grow.
Friend has started the progression from Sales to Consultant.

Of course by now we have realized this metaphor is not really about a salesperson named ‘Friend’, after all who would name anybody ‘Friend’. It is about all of us, and repositioning ourselves as expert consultants. We had to work and study to be successful in the past, and with a minor shift in perspective and attitude I am confident you will be able to take your success to the next level. Enjoy the Journey!

What to Look For in a Consultant

Here are some things to look for if you genuinely want value from a consultant, all of which you can test in a meeting or single reference.

First is personal credibility. I don’t necessarily mean brand here, which in a way is lent credibility. I mean the credibility of the person or people actually doing the work. To appreciate the importance of this distinction, you just need to look forward in time and ask: “What credibility will that person have in front of the Board or the bank or the MD or my colleagues when they start asking difficult questions?” Of course there are times when a brand does add credence, but I’d argue that what really counts is the quality of the individual making those recommendations, and consequently the recommendations themselves.

Second is subject matter expertise. By this I mean genuine expertise in the particular issue you are facing, be that business case development, due diligence, market entry, benchmarking, whatever. I specifically don’t mean industry expertise, which in my experience contributes either marginally or even negatively in a consultant’s value to a company.

At the risk of unpopularity, using industry expertise as a way of choosing a consultant is, in my view, misconceived. It is an easy way of screening for a buyer, and an easy way of selling for a consultant. Consultancies understand this dynamic and have industry experts at senior level only, in order to help the sales situation. They talk the language, have the examples, etc. But the people that do the work and generate the insights come from a pool of generalists and subject matter experts.

We hear all the time that clients are amazed how quickly we get to understand their industries. But they’re giving us way too much credit and over-estimating the difficulty of understanding a sector sufficiently well to apply our subject matter expertise. In contrast, subject matter expertise is the thing that takes years to develop. To illustrate, we have performed dozens of due diligences of technology companies, and we use exactly the same skills to due diligence leisure companies. Each one, in whatever sector, takes only three weeks, and we have never had any problems in sectors we have never worked in before. But we would have no idea where to start re-engineering a business process, a subject in which we have no expertise, one of the exact same tech companies we just diligenced. And we couldn’t even dream of knowing how to sell a client’s products.

A third thing to look for in a consultant is his willingness and ability to challenge you, your views and your assumptions. It is easy for an adviser to back down, particularly someone who’s junior, impressionable, easily intimidated or otherwise anxious to please. I’m embarrassed for my profession that 90% of consultants I’ve met fit into one of those categories, people responsible for the tedious cliché of the consultant taking your watch to tell you the time.

The Greeks had a concept of a noble friend, who would tell you the truth, even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. A good consultant is a noble friend for hire.

A fourth thing to look for is absolute attention to your particular concern. The consultant will be so focused on your particular issue that you won’t be able to see any approach or methodology he employs. Every conversation will all be about your situation and helping you improve your own condition.

There are some good precedents for these characteristics in an adviser. William Wilberforce, in my opinion one of the greatest men who ever lived, had for an adviser the great John Newton (pictured above), composer of Amazing Grace. Alexander the Great had Aristotle. Washington had Lafayette. I guess they didn’t do too badly.

Core Consulting Skills – The Biggest Consulting Mistake

A core consulting skill is the ability to present data and analysis. But though many technically skilled consultants do an excellent job in number crunching phase, they fall flat when they present their data. The problem is a lack of knowledge about how to structure presentations that include data and analysis. And with a simple formula it’s easy to rectify.

Over the past 10 years that I have owned and run a small consulting firm I have coached and mentored many consultants. To a person they were desperate to learn the secrets of how to analyse a company, how to get to the big issues, or how to turn around an ailing business. But when it came to presenting their data they always said the same thing “if my analysis and findings are good” then the data will present itself; wrong!

I have cringed through many a presentation where the analysis and data gathering were fantastic, but when the consultant got up on their feet to present it, they simply withered and died; and typically the client looked bored. In every single case the problem was the same: a lack of knowledge about how to structure their data so that it told a logical story and only the pertinent points were used.

For example let’s say that over a four week analysis of a business you may gather two or three hundred pieces of data. Wouldn’t you agree that to try and present all of that information to a senior management team will not only confuse them but is unlikely to help them make decisions? I think so, but that’s what happens.

So if you want to avoid death by data what can you do to help your audience to get your message, and also help you keep and grow the client?

1. Build a mega-structure for your data. Choose three main questions that you will use to categorise your data i.e. “What’s going wrong in the business, why is it happening, and how can we fix it?”

2. Take each question and answer it with two to three main points, e.g. “what’s going wrong?”

a. “Customers are complaining”
b. “There is low staff morale”
c. “You are losing money.”

3. Take each point and find the best piece of data to support your argument. Force yourself to only use one (maximum two) bits of evidence.

Finally, do your planning on paper or a large whiteboard, leave building the PowerPoint slides until the very end; if you do you’ll leave your client impressed rather than depressed.

Avoid Higher Computer Consultant Costs by Using 11 Point Checklist

How well your computer consultant understands your business computer requirements determine your total computer consulting costs by minimizing midstream changes, corrections and additions. Things not fully clarified can get altered or totally omitted, requiring more costly labor to correct or redesign.

Don’t leave it to chance. Here is a checklist that covers the key areas to clarify for yourself and your computer consultant before discussion starts:

A list of the things you need to keep track of in your database and how they relate to each other is a good start but here is a more complete list to make sure nothing is falls between the cracks between you and your computer consultant.

1. What are your major categories of data and what specific data is stored under each category. Listing out your various business processes, and the steps required to accomplish them will help answer this.

2. How will want to filter your data to get a just what you need for a report or a screen view.

3. Any examples of reports or other output you may need or are currently using. (Microsoft Word can be used to illustrate a report design.)

4. Define what data validation or business rules are needed during data entry.

5. Any special requirements involving linking to or importing data from data sources outside of your business software.

6. Any financial accounting requirements or other legal / liability issues requiring additional data storage and output.

7. What kind of hardware system exists and is anyone supporting this.

8. Will data access require any remote access permissions?

9. The level of security access required for various areas of data viewing and editing among the individuals given permissions.

10. Current data entry media and formats currently being used if any exist.

11. Any data migration requirements from existing data sources, such as available formats form these sources

I can tell you that a consultant’s time might not always be billable on that first consultation, but he or she will appreciate the business owner who is prepared and can answer these basic questions.

I have found that it’s rare that a business owner is sufficiently prepared to start a discussion in this area unless these points have been thought out.

If you have had any experiences with computer business consultants that went sour or did not meet expectations, your comments and lessons learned are welcome. We all need to learn more about this vital area and that includes me.

Small Business Coaching & Consulting – The Hottest, Must Have Accessory For 2009!

Do you want to know the secret that most successful people in this world know and have that you don’t?

A great spiritual leader, tells of his visit to the land of Africa. All his life he wanted to see the wild animals of my home-land.  I share a bit of his account while they were out and about:

We stopped at a water hole to watch the animals come to drink. It was very dry that season and there was not much water, really just muddy spots. When the elephants stepped into the soft mud the water would seep into the depression and the animals would drink from the elephant tracks.

The antelope, particularly, were very nervous. They would approach the mud hole, only to turn and run away in great fright. I could see there were no lions about and asked the guide why they didn’t drink. His answer, and this is the lesson, was “Crocodiles.”

I knew he must be joking and asked him seriously, “What is the problem?” The answer again: “Crocodiles.”

“Nonsense,” I said. “There are no crocodiles out there. Anyone can see that.”

Tiger woods, the famed golf player has one!  Michael Phelps swears by it!  Barbara Streisand says without it she would not be the power house we know her today.  Serena and Venus Williams have one , goodness even Oprah has one!  It is definitely  the must have accessory for the 2009 year!   Do you have one?

Apparently after a (rare) disappointing round of golf, Tiger Woods will often take a golf lesson. Why would  Tiger Woods, the greatest golfer the world has ever known take a golf lesson?  And from whom would he take this lesson? You see it is not so much about the greatest golfer taking a lesson from lesser known, no-talent person.  The value here is in Tiger’s ability to “see himself objectively” from an angle or perspective that is not his own.

All coaching is, is taking a player where he can’t take himself – Bill McCartney

It is therefore very apparent that the worlds highest performers get this concept.  Hence the vast difference between mediocrity and phenomenal success!

Einstein said, “The mind that created the problem cannot be the one be to solve it.” In the same way, the person in the trenches is often unable to see themselves objectively enough to overcome their limitations.

By now you have figured out that we are talking about Personal coaching.  That’s just one of the reasons that coaching is so powerful. A great coach can provide comprehensive knowledge and/or training that you just do not possess.

Having personal, one-on-one coaching can make all the difference in the world between being somewhat successful and being phenomenally successful.

A question was posed on yahoo answers that read:

Has anyone used a business coach or consultant? Will I get help or scammed?

I have a small home-based business that I’m looking to take to the next level. Should I just plunge into business books and try to grow it myself? Or should I sink the $4000 into a one-year relationship with a business consultant who is confident he can help me grow? I don’t want to contract with him and find out that everything he tells me is just common sense business advice straight out of the books.


  • Wouldn’t you much rather have a qualified expert take a look at what you’ve done and give you suggestions on improving it?
  • Wouldn’t you much rather have a qualified expert to turn to when you have a question rather than try to figure it out through trial and error?
  • Wouldn’t you much rather have a qualified expert who can tell you “that’s a bad idea, here’s a better way” than to get it wrong and face another setback?
  • Wouldn’t you much rather have a qualified expert hold you accountable and keep you motivated and on track rather than go at it alone and quit before the finish line

In reply, may I share with you this quote:

Coaching helps you develop your leadership skills, clarify your values and guiding principles and build your reputation.” -  John G Agno

Every person’s situation and needs are different. If you want the most power behind your punch, you want to have coaching that is focused 100% on you. The only strengths and weaknesses that will be targeted are yours, not those of 10 other people as well.

Often there is a natural desire to buy answers in a packaged program rather than do the work it takes to find a solution, BUT all too often what people end up with is an EMPTY PACKAGE! You have come to coaching for many reasons, but the bottom line is YOU WANT CHANGE!

The coaching-client relationship is like having your own personal GPS, for the journey that is your life. 

Why would someone at the top of their chosen profession need a coach?

The answer is quite simple. They realize, as do top performers in every field, the value of having someone on the sidelines watching their every move and making sure they’re on track. They know that, while they are doing what they do, it’s important to have someone watching their every step and providing feedback to help them be their best.

Today, smart entrepreneurs are doing the same. Understanding that, rarely does anyone reach their potential without a coach, they are hiring coaches who specialize in working with businesses. Small business owners in particular, many who have no one to confide in other than their partner or spouse, can benefit greatly from the services of a small business coach. And hiring a coach tends to be a minor investment when compared to the value it brings.

In addition to providing a confidential and objective sounding board for problem solving and brainstorming, their coach will hold them accountable for achieving the goals they set for themselves and their business. Often the bane of the small business owner is that they are too busy with day-to-day activities, putting out the occasional “fires” that flare up unexpectedly to be concentrating on their long term vision. And most have learned from experience how difficult it is to achieve significant results going it alone.

Their coach, on the other hand, is able to hold this vision with them and ensure they are moving toward it. And a really great coach will help the entrepreneur envision a result bigger than they would have thought possible.

So, if you want to see your business grow and prosper, go out and get a coach.

It is important to note that there is a difference between coaching and consulting.

Consulting is when you pay an expert to come in and lay out exactly what you need to do in order to succeed. In consulting, the expert makes a blueprint and points you in the exact direction you need to go.

Coaching involves more interaction. It is more two-sided. The coach is there to guide and work with the client to find out how improvements can be made. “What can you say differently next time?”… “How can you invoke more feelings from your prospect next time?”…”How can you do a better job of finding their motivation next time?”…These are questions that a coach should ask and find answers to when working with a client.


Consulting could be considered a beginning level of guidance and coaching a more advanced level.

Andrea Waltz, author of the popular book Go For No, states;

The relationship with your coach is an important and powerful one. As such, when choosing a coach, we recommend you interview him/her just like you would an employee you are hiring. But make no mistake; your coach will not be an employee. They will be your partner.

And if they brag about how everything comes easy to him/her and how they’ve never had any problems in their lives, find another coach! You want someone who has worked through obstacles to get where they are!”

And there you have it.  The must have accessory of the year 2009.  Do you have one?
