At CM Group, we understand that patients who live with and suffer from devastating rare diseases have unique challenges. It is common for patients to go years without a diagnosis while being passed from one specialist to another—always seeking answers, but never getting them. When they are finally diagnosed, patients may feel isolated and alone. Often, they seek out other patients who share a similar journey to diagnosis and treatment. Partnering with our clients in rare disease, we develop programs and meetings that are customized to each individual patient and caregiver community. This includes identifying Patient Ambassadors and working with them to develop their personal story. We train, coach and support these patients to share their story in both live and virtual settings, realizing that storytelling requires both engaging content and style. We do not take this job lightly – we manage our client’s patient speakers with empathy, and also with a focus on delivering compliant, successful programs.
Our team offers truly innovative Speaker Bureau programming, along with the highest level of sales team, compliance and reporting support. We partner with our clients to develop new approaches to superior quality educational programming that fit the unique needs of each commercial team and therapeutic area. We reject the cookie-cutter, mass-market “Big Pharma” approach to speaker bureau management and partner with our clients to develop customized, high-impact programs. Our highly trained Speaker Bureau Managers work closely with our client’s speakers (KOLs) and field teams to plan and execute these programs — both KOLs and clients appreciate this personal, white-glove level of service and expect nothing less.
