Prism inspires collaborative, professional and innovative working practices to enable the delivery of high quality, complex clinical studies, projects and meetings
Prism was founded in 1998, primarily because we believed that there was a need for high quality, personalised delivery of executive meetings and events. It was that belief that drove us to strive for excellence in event management and subsequently have built strong relationships with Fortune 100 companies. Over time, our clients recognised that our disciplined approach lent itself to clinical study management, hence we developed a complimentary business of leading highly complex, post authorisation clinical studies.
Today, we have a global network of versatile, professional project managers with 10+ years experience in leading highly complex projects. A typical project leader skill set includes leading the development of the study/project design, managing geographically dispersed teams, financial management as well as third party contract development, execution and management. Our hands on approach leads to the delivery of on-time and on-budget trials, studies and events.
At Prism, we love what we do and work tirelessly to meet and exceed our client's expectations.
We invite you to review our fully integrated portfolio of services and let us know how we can assist in your success.

Strategic management of complex collaborations includes:
We believe that there is no substitute for experience when it comes to delivering high quality, professional service. Therefore, each member of the PRISM team have a minimum of 10 years experience in their area of expertise. Our leaders create, initiate, direct and deliver.
We believe that a successful client/supplier team is a partnership whose goals are identical. Our first goal is to understand our client’s objectives to then drive our objectives.
We believe in becoming a seamless extension of our client’s organisation. A key component of our value proposition is that we have experience managing multiple vendors to deliver seamless, co-ordinated trial, project or event management. At Prism, our team of specialists have the know how to develop and execute third party contracts and manage vendor resources with the sole purpose of delivering fully integrated, successful projects and events.
We believe that every trial, project or event should leave a lasting impression upon the participants. Therefore, we challenge our team as well as our clients to encourage creativity and innovation that leads to delivering extraordinary results.
I have worked with Prism for years and can confirm what colleagues say: “at a Prism meeting, your feet don’t touch the ground.” Working with Prism is hassle-free for sponsors and participants: transport, accommodations, and the meeting rooms are perfect or nearly so. More importantly, all aspects of meetings are handled just as smoothly and professionally as the service suggests.
Planned materials are always at hand and unplanned ones simply appear as needed. The rooms and equipment always work because of Prism’s particular preparation. A small example: all companies have spare batteries for the microphones but I have not noticed another putting fresh batteries in every device every day. Follow-up activities such as reimbursements are handled without difficulty. Financial aspects are also handled perfectly, and not simply for meetings.
As an academic, I was the recipient of research funding managed by Prism. That relationship was also professional, efficient, precise and easy.
I first worked with Paula Blay as Prism Event Management was established in the late 1990’s as a contract research organisation on a European HIV clinical trial. We then worked together for a further 8 years from 2004 to 2012 when I was co-chair of the Oversight Committee responsible for the funding of an International HIV drug safety research programme( the Data collection on Adverse events of Anti-HIV Drugs (D:A:D study). This programme brought together Clinical Scientists from Universities and Industry, HIV Community representatives and Drug Regulators (European Medicines agency and the US Food and Drug Administration).
This was a highly complex international working environment and Paula and her team led and handled much of the work of the Committee across a variety of areas including the project and financial management, contract negotiation, event management and hospitality.
Paula and her team are superbly professional in everything they do and this international effort would not have been possible without them.
I have had the pleasure to work with Paula and her staff at Prism Event Management for the planning and execution of several multinational scientific meetings and conference calls.
In all instances Paula and her staff did a superb job managing the budget, organising the event, making travel arrangements for all participants, producing quality meeting materials and slides as well as issuing meeting minutes and action items that accurately reflected the content and discussions of the meetings.
No event was too large to manage and no detail was overlooked, Paula and her staff were always very professional and did an outstanding job in every respect.
I highly recommend Paula to anyone needing assistance with a complex scientific meeting event.
Paula brings all her creativity, professionalism and enormous experience to the role, in our case event planning and support.
She and her team can be relied upon to become part of your team. Best of all, Paula runs a happy ship, to the benefit of staff and clients.
I had the pleasure of working with Prism Event Management for 10 years when they provided services for Gilead Sciences. Prism helped Gilead Sciences organise a European post-approval committee that involved working collaboratively with several other pharmaceutical companies. They organised meetings (both face-to-face and teleconferences) for top executives, assigned tasks and responsibilities, and wrote agendas and meeting minutes. They also managed the associated project budgets and timelines.
Prism expertly kept a busy group of executives on-task and organised. They maintained their friendly professionalism through every issue, not matter how urgent. I found Prism to be staffed by highly competent professionals that provide timely, effective solutions. I have the utmost confidence in this team and hope to work with them again in the near future.
I have worked with Prism/ Paula Blay for at least 10 years and what makes them stand out is the amazing attention to detail and their “nothing is too much trouble” attitude.
Currently, we are working with Prism on a complex clinical study project which Prism is project managing. Paula has always been on top of any evolving situation, keeping a very close eye on all the parties involved and if things go off track she presents possible paths forward and solutions to any problems.
In terms of event management if Prism is involved, all seems to go smoothly without a hitch, although I am sure they are rushing around behind the scenes to ensure everything goes to plan. Due to this superb management of the event we have been able to focus on the goals and objectives of the meeting and not concern ourselves with any organisational aspects.
Prism operates with integrity and transparency with full disclosure and explanation of all the costs involved and even perform financial audits of third parties to ensure transparency and value for money.
I have no hesitation in recommending Prism for clinical study projects and event management.
I have had the privilege of working with Paula and the team at PRISM since the late 1990s’ across clinical development activities, sponsor meetings and high profile Conference events. Throughout this time PRISM has provided a stellar, first rate service. This is characterised by technical expertise, unrivalled intra personal and communication skills and leadership and management of large project budgets. PRISM has delivered time and time again with professional services working to tight deadlines and budgetary requirements often with stressed senior management and external experts. Further, PRISM demonstrates clear passion and enthusiasm for their work, their clients and the beneficiaries of the programmes and projects they deliver. More often than not PRISM projects seek to help the most vulnerable communities and patients in need of quality medicines.
I have worked with Prism for many years across several large projects and enjoy collaborating with their professional and personable team.
They consistently and reliably provide superior quality service, whether it be the management of a large epidemiological study or coordination of an executive meeting.
My experience with PRISM has been extraordinary. I’ve been attending meetings and teleconferences that PRISM has overseen for almost a decade.
Every aspect of our work has consistently been seamlessly organised, making it easy for us to focus on the tasks at hand.
PRISM has helped us to maximise our productivity, while enjoying the collaborative process. PRISM’s work reflects an ideal balance between complete professionalism and warm and personal service.
I cannot recommend them highly enough.
