The ONTARGET Trial Programme has been designed to evaluate and consolidate the role of telmisartan in cardiovascular protection. It is essential to disseminate the results of this trial to cardiologists worldwide.


Organisation of two “ONTARGET Speakers’ Summit Meetings”, targeting local thought leaders and ONTARGET investigators from the Americas, Asia and Europe. They were educated about the ONTARGET results and attended workshops on presentation skills (in different languages). The goal of the meeting was to make the delegates feel comfortable to present ONTARGET data at local meetings, and provide them with the necessary materials, skills and commitment.

I was already well informed, but even much better after the Summit – and I improved my communication and presentation skills Feedback from a delegate


Organisational set-up

We organised the meeting in Singapore, then 1 week later in Madrid.

Ismar was involved in:

  • Developing the meeting format and agenda
  • Developing the meeting identity, binders, signage, staging and CD slide resource wizard
  • Preparing the presentation skills workshops together with professional performance coaches (in different languages)
  • Managing logistics and room/AV set-up
  • Managing the meetings on-site


Delegates’ and client’s feedback

The delegates had very positive feelings about the Summit. They declared that they were now better informed about the content, had learned a lot about presenting data at meetings, and had enjoyed the interactions between colleagues.

The client said the meetings exceeded their expectations.
