Industry Leaders Think Tank

What is the IAOCR Think Tank?

Industry Leaders Think Tank

Since launching IAOCR in 2011 our focus has been on improving standards globally and we are delighted to be able to bring together people from a wide range of locations and clinical research organizations to have high level discussions and debate.

The Industry Leaders Think Tank is a unique meeting exclusively for senior industry leaders and nominated directors from the clinical research industry. The meeting brings together respected decision makers and change agents to ensure that discussions are meaningful and that learnings and outcomes can be taken back into organizations to add value.

The IAOCR Industry Leaders Think Tank event has attracted senior clinical research industry leaders, regulators, parliamentarians and experts. Speakers at these Think Tanks have included the UK Shadow Health Minister and senior executives from commercial and non-commercial organizations from around the world.

What Industry Leaders Say About IAOCR

“I would absolutely recommend the organization. In all my dealings with them I’ve found them to be highly professional, extremely focused, and I’ve been delighted to be a member of the committee and part of the Workforce Quality Accreditation program. I think it has the real potential to be adopted across the industry. The fact that there is an accreditation process where none existed before, we are looking at common competencies that work across academia, across CRO and pharma. This is something to be absolutely celebrated.”

Graham Belgrave – Chief Operating Officer, Cmed Clinical Services

“I would absolutely recommend IAOCR. They’ve really helped us over the last couple of years, re-organize the way we deliver training. I think the way they go about their business is very diligent, it’s quite strict, which I think you need when you’re setting up levels of competence for the industry. IAOCR have really helped us shape out thoughts around competence over the last four or five years.”

Alistair MacDonald – CEO, Syneos Health

“I think they’re really shaping the industry, they were the primary and first people speaking about competency….IAOCR are the frontier of how we should be evaluating clinical research professionals. It’s the wave of the future and I;d like to see the industry embrace it as a whole.”

Elizabeth Edwards – Independent Consultant (Formerly Biomat)
