Stuart Crichton

What did you do before joining Prescient?

I was a pharmacist in the NHS.

Why did you join Prescient?

I really wanted to work in the commercial or business side of the pharma industry, and consultancy work appealed to me because of the variability and problem-solving aspects.

What does your job involve on a day-to-day basis?

I support our Advisory clients solving the knotty problems that face them in developing and launching brands to market. On a practical level, I conduct secondary and primary research, create client deliverables and proposals, identify potential new client opportunities and arrange new client meetings.

What surprised you about Prescient?

The amount you learn in a short span of time; it is a culture where everyone is focused on continually building their skills and expertise.

What is the best part of your work day?

Finding new opportunities for potential projects and meeting new clients.

What do you value about your job?

Working with great colleagues and having the opportunity to learn about a range of markets and therapy areas.

What have you learned?

I have learned so many new skills from the technical – both my PowerPoint and Excel skills have improved – to the business side, how to tackle client requests and the main trends and themes seen in some of the oncology, immunology and rare disease markets. I am now building my consulting toolkit, learning how to analyze businesses and markets.

What are you passionate about?

I have an adopted otter from the London Zoo. Apart from otters, I am passionate about all things sport, especially rugby and golf.
