A culture of entrepreneurs.

Deeply embedded in Clarion’s DNA is the drive and creative optimism of an entrepreneur–the kind of person that makes the impossible achievable. Complementing the rigor of the seasoned analyst, this entrepreneurial spark helps Clarion’s team see opportunities where others see obstacles. It gives us the confidence to look beyond the patterns of the past towards the possibilities of tomorrow.


An insatiable curiosity.

Clarion’s team consists of individuals who are deeply passionate about life sciences. Seasoned professionals who obsess with the details of daunting challenges deep into the night. Scientists and business brains working in symphony. Gritty professionals who thrive on taking problems apart and putting them together again as elegant solutions. At Clarion, we have no B-team, egos, or hierarchies. We do what we do because we are obsessed. Our brains are restless. We cannot let problems remain unsolved. What is wrong is not good enough. What is possible is. Our consultants are solvers, doers, believers.


A commitment to collaboration.

At Clarion, we have designed a truly collaborative consulting process. True collaboration–the kind where confident professionals listen, exchange ideas and find inspired solutions as a result–is quite rare. It takes confidence, commitment and time. We structure all of our engagements around the Clarion Collaborative Process Model. This allows us to build insights and bridges across functions, see new possibilities, and ensure a level of understanding and buy-in that leaves our clients stronger at the end of our engagements.
