Ben Doran — Vice President

"Being at the cutting edge of drug development and commercialization and working with a team that has trust and can inspire internally and externally."
I am from Derby, England, so I am a diehard Derby County fan, regardless of all the troubles and turmoil over the years! I also enjoy taking inspiration from the world around me and seeing how I can apply those learnings to my life, both personally and professionally.What did you do before joining Prescient?
I was a Preclinical Project Manager/Translational Scientist at Antisoma.What appealed to you about Prescient?
[What appealed to me about Prescient was the opportunity for] gaining a broader perspective of the pharma and biotech industry and accelerating personal and professional development. [This has led to] a journey of self-discovery, one that I am still on eight years later.What do you value about your job?
Being at the cutting edge of drug development and commercialization and working with a team that has trust and can inspire internally and externally.What impact do you feel you are making?
Clients make decisions all the time based on the intelligence that we provide; multiply that by numerous brand and product development teams across projects, then there is an impact so broad it can be difficult to imagine. Sometimes we know exactly what the impact is, but sometimes there could be an internal client stakeholder that makes a decision based on our information and it is gratifying to learn of this, even when it is years later.How do you develop your team?
Provide an environment that balances freedom and control, empowers the project manager to take project responsibility and creates empathy. The ultimate aim is to achieve complete trust within the team, celebrate coaching and support that drives growth, recognize important nuances that can be important drivers of final delivery, and encourage curiosity and creativity that can be spread company wide.How do you support and nurture talent?
Provide opportunities as often as possible in a safe environment and gradually give more exposure and responsibility as confidence increases. Encourage and support new opportunities; do not just give people experiences but grow their ability to learn and hopefully a path to master their consultative skills.What do you like about working with clients?
The ability to learn from multiple clients in different companies, giving broad exposure and opportunities to meet new challenges that are usually unexpected and finding new opportunities for growth, regardless of the client and specific situation.

"I value the opportunities that Prescient offers to each one of us. The open culture of the company allows people to choose their path and the senior management is always willing to nurture those choices."
Traveling (and food), dancing and reading.What did you do before joining Prescient?
I worked at three pharmaceutical companies – J&J, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Abbott – in marketing and commercial roles before joining Prescient.What appealed to you about Prescient?
Having worked on the client side, I wanted to experience the fast-paced consulting side of the business. I wanted to explore the different kinds of challenges that consultants get called upon to tackle and be able to bring some of my previous expertise into the new job.What do you do on a day-to-day basis?
Take up complex business challenges, break them up into smaller achievable tasks, work in teams and execute on them in a timely fashion.What is the best part of your work day?
Being able to contribute to, lead diverse engagements and shape overall development of the final product that comes out of research.What do you value about your job?
I value the opportunities that Prescient offers to each one of us. The open culture of the company allows people to choose their path and the senior management is always willing to nurture those choices.What have you learned?
Synthesizing knowledge into a coherent narrative that gives the client a defined path forward is a very important step in the work that we do.What surprised you about Prescient?
The way people from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds blend in to create a positive work culture.
Jatin Gupta — Director
Intelligence & Insight, New Delhi
"I am helping pharmaceutical companies plan or improve their businesses, which ultimately has a significant impact on the healthcare community."
The dynamic and fast-paced culture, the wide spectrum of opportunity (types of therapy areas, types of projects, types of clients and so on) and the meritocratic structure and recognition of work.What do you spend your time doing?
On the job, making an impact on client strategies, and outside, planning for or participating in adventure sports.What do you value about your job?
Various aspects, but the most important for me is the diverse and dynamic nature of the work while being able to materially impact client strategies.What impact do you feel you are making?
I am helping pharmaceutical companies plan or improve their businesses, which ultimately has a significant impact on the healthcare community.How do you develop your team?
Understanding their goals and identifying the best tasks that fit their goals, providing them with opportunities to choose what is best for them and showing them how things are done (by example).How do you support and nurture talent?
Understand the talent by providing them with diverse opportunities and seeing what attracted them most and where they performed best. Understand their issues and support them in finding a solution. Provide them with specific and logical milestones in achieving their goals and nourishing the talent (and get someone else involved in case I do not have expertise in identifying talent-specific milestones). I encourage and back them if they take missteps when I see the intent was correct and/or where they feel they are not getting acknowledged for achieving their milestones.How do you turn science into value?
I assess all our findings (science-based or non-science-based) for how they impact the overall business objective or issue. If the particular science is relevant to the business objective or issue at hand, then the impact of that science is assessed against its value to the market the client is targeting and how it compares to those of the competitors.What do you like about working with clients?
Being able to help such major companies with their strategies that could directly impact healthcare is the key part. Speaking to executives from different companies, cultures, locations and backgrounds allows a lot of learning. I also enjoy brainstorming sessions with clients and being able to become a support network with them (at least with those who allow us to).
