I worked with Isabelle on a major worldwide digital innovation project. Isabelle was highly respected and became the go to person for guidance on all aspects of the project. Isabelle was very organized and provided essential support to our affiliates to help them manage the changes in process and ways of communicating. She was instrumental to the successful design and implementation of the project. I would recommend working with Isabelle for her can do attitude, expertise in designing and managing global transformation programmes and efficient project management. On top of all that Isabelle is open, approachable and very easy to work with.

Isabelle delivered a workshop focusing on performance excellence and continuous improvement for Medical Information and Promotional Compliance team. Isabelle’s ability to quickly understand complex processes, identify gaps and suggest improvement is quite impressive. Isabelle is quite structured in her approach and ensured that she got complete picture regarding team and processes before arriving onsite and commencing the workshop. Isabelle ensured that workshop is quite interactive to get most out of the team and suggested valuable improvements. Isabelle’s experience with other top pharma companies were reflected in this session and added significant value to the overall session.

Thank you very much for all your efforts, engagement and time. You have really “lighted” the Med. Affairs path for us. For small and busy companies as ours it is of tremendous support to have a reliable and experienced partner as yourself.
What is left for us is to find the time and energy to act upon your recommendations and implement your comments. I will make sure we start in the following days before we are run over with the daily business.
Labatec Pharma SA
We sought the counsel of Isabelle Widmer in 2016 to fine tune operations relating to a regional affiliate Hub supporting medical information. We have stood to benefit a great deal from Isabelle’s former experience in dealing with the provision of a regionalized service. She was able to tease out the issues/concerns faced by affiliates who really are customer-facing in a very objective fashion. She conducted a workshop with thorough follow ups and assessments of the set-up and was very pragmatic in her proposals especially bearing in mind the lean nature of our company’s operations. This was of benefit to us as often times proposals reflect big-pharma and cannot be realized in companies where resources are limiting. The outcomes of these workshops resulted in the successful launch of a regional EU hub support service that operates targeting specific needs of some EU affiliates. Her conscientious approach to dealing with potential change management issues helped us in delivering a targeted solution that was well received by some of our EU affiliates. Isabelle’s personable nature made even sensitive discussions relatively easy.
Global Lead Medical Information and Knowledge Management
Isabelle has expert level knowledge and understanding of industry best practices for Medical Information/ Communication and Commercial business processes. I have interacted with Isabelle during several medical information industry conferences in the past. I have enjoyed attending some of her insightful presentations. I have also got a chance to interact with Isabelle during a recent RFP evaluation process (global MI software system evaluation/ selection). Isabelle was very organized in her communication and provided essential support needed for our team to complete the responses to RFP. She came across as a thorough professional and applied consultative approach to address the goals of the sponsor/ customer throughout the process. Isabelle is a real pleasure to work with.

I have known Dr. Widmer for a number years through the DIA. Her presentations at DIA have always been insightful and challenging. She does not accept the status quo, but is always pushing the boundaries to improve and enhance the relevance of medical information and medical affairs. She is very engaging and enthusiastic in her presentation style and motivates her audience to keep the patient in mind and strive for the best.

I approached Isabelle because I was in a transition career period. I had an extensive experience in science where I did a Ph.D. followed by a PosDoc, and by that time I had finally moved into a consulting role for supporting biotech start-ups business development. However, I was always fascinated by the Pharma industry and how I could find myself a role in that environment.
Isabelle helped me by taking her time and describing me all the exciting roles in Pharma and giving me an extensive overview of potential roles that might be a fit considering my previous experiences.
One thing I liked was her ability to access my vulnerabilities and taking care that would consider my self-assessment to check where I could perform and deliver the responsibilities behind the roles. In order words, she helped me to learn more about myself and work-related values, interest and personality type.
The result was that I stayed in consulting based on those assessments and my interest for working on multiple projects at the same time, non-routine tasks and traveling lifestyle. I found her mentoring extremely rich because of her guidance and the confidence to make these decisions.
