Clinical trial timelines

Consultative management approach steers international investigator meeting


A client was holding a global study with multiple stakeholders, but venues were limited due to combined protocols and required X-Ray training.

The Contact Research Organization (CRO) was unaware of the approvals, jeopardizing the planning. Investigator Meetings were often postponed due to slow patient enrollment, requiring all activities to restart.


  • Appointed a project manager as the single point of contact to intercept incoming protocol requests
  • Restructured meeting agendas to maximize space availability
  • Conducted training and education
  • Accelerated site management substitutions
  • Standardized file nomenclature for all locally translated materials


  • Successfully planned six large international investigator meetings (115-600 attendees each) across three countries in four months
  • Ensured study timelines remained on track
  • Successfully managed all attendee due diligence, registration, travel, logistics and expense reimbursement
