Moving Pharma Forward
Impact-Focused Thought Partners
Protagoras Group is a London-based boutique life science consultancy, founded to support our clients in driving innovation throughout all aspects of their business.
We have worked with life science companies of all sizes, ranging from early-stage startups right through to top-ten Pharma. While our experience and industry knowledge matches other consultancies, our true differentiation lies in our collaborative, client-focused approach.
Our mission is to do impactful work and with every project we do, we seek to bring real value to our clients’ organisations. We work the way our clients need us to, building truly customised solutions to meet our clients’ needs – that’s why every client we have worked with continues to work with us long-term.
Our team shares two common characteristics: they enjoy engaging with people, and they are highly driven. This allows us to form collaborative partnerships and deliver effective solutions which meet the client’s needs
Commitment to understanding client needs
We know that each client’s business needs are unique. Our end-to-end consulting experience means that we design and implement tailored solutions that work for each client in practice, not just in theory
We give fully independent advice, which means that we are able to see beyond the way things have always been done, and draw on best practice from across the industry
How we help
Our deep industry experience across strategy and implementation allows us to “Advise, Build and Change” client organisations effectively.
Our approach to consulting is simple. Helping our clients develop their strategy allows us to better build and implement the resultant solutions. In turn, understanding how these solutions are put into practice helps us to refine the strategies we develop.
What we offer
By keeping our focus clear within the Pharma & Life Sciences industry, we offer real depth of knowledge to our clients, ensuring executive teams have the right level of support they need to make informed decisions.
We work across the operating model to improve effectiveness, we support in building pharmaceutical assets’ development strategy across the product lifecycle, and we support BioTech companies throughout the readiness roadmap.
The Protagoras Team has wide-ranging experience within the Life Sciences sector.
Empowering MSLs to deliver better scientific engagements
HCPs’ increasing reliance on the scientific expertise of MSLs is positioning the role as an essential strategic resource for Pharma companies. This trend has resulted in a boom in the number of MSLs across the industry – since 2010 MSL headcount has increased by 300%.
However, many Medical Affairs teams remain underfunded and struggle to provide MSLs the support and resources they need to effectively carry out their impactful work.
Oliver Spray has written our most recent whitepaper titled ‘Empowering MSLs to deliver better scientific engagements’, which examines three challenges MSLs face in delivering impactful HCP engagements as well as providing proposals to Pharma on how to overcome them.
