Our Managing Director Dr Jörg Täubel and Medical Director Dr Ulrike Lorch recently travelled to Japan to meet with business partners and learn more about the Japanese way of doing business.Nemawashi is a Japanese business process which assures a consensus and harmony between business partners. Nemawashi allows both parties to save valuable time before important meetings because both sides are able to adjust opinions and positions beforehand.

Dr Täubel and Dr Lorch gained first hand experience of Nemawashi during the week-long trip, during which time they met with a range of policy makers, media and business partners to gain further insights into the Japanese CRO and SMO markets.“The trip was a huge success” said Dr Lorch. “Not only did we hold very positive meetings with stakeholders, we also discovered a new and exciting way of life. I have started learning Japanese to help develop relations with our partners in future!”
