Dr. Nancy Parenteau

I'm the creator and your guide and moderator in the BioLeader Tune-Up™. As a leader in bioscience with 30 years of experience, I am paying it forward.

While we all learn from our mistakes, you don't have to learn by repeating those of others or trying to achieve your objectives without the principles and best practices that could help you succeed, have greater impact, and experience more joy in what you do.

The BioLeader Tune-Up is a resource I wish I'd had. I'm so pleased you're considering joining the program.

Bioscience development is hard, with a candidate's success rate stubbornly around 10-20%. Let's move the needle.

""Failure is inevitable…among biotech companies. These failures sometimes come back to science, but there are many common setbacks that can be avoided through careful study and stringent organization.”     AlleyWatch

Build upon the shoulders of others to achieve bioscience leadership that is astute, clear and high-impact.

Hi, and thanks for stopping by to take the next step with me.

Because you're on this page, it's highly likely that you already appreciate how your leadership matters.

Good call because fine-tuning your bioscience leadership is a worthy investment of your time and attention.

It is one of the most fundamental things you can do to improve the odds of success. Once you're aware of it, it's onward and upward!

Get started

if you'd like to talk before making a decision, let's chat. I can answer any questions, and together, we can determine whether the BioLeader Tune-Up is right for you and is a program that you'll enjoy participating in.

Consider these unique features :

  • You Get Thirty Days to Try the Program Before Committing

I want to be sure you will enjoy and find value in participating. So, you get to experience the method and platform with 30-day access to a self-assessment of your current practices and habits, along with the foundational module on Self-Leadership. Also included are weekly live, online sessions.  All I ask is that you try it in earnest.  

If you find the program is not what you had in mind, you can choose not to continue within the 30 days, let me know by email or text and you won’t owe me anything except some feedback.

  •  Three Proprietary Foundational Concepts are Designed to Create a Competitive Advantage

Practice them with my support to elevate your bioscience leadership, resulting in renewed, well-developed, savvy foresight where development and management pitfalls are readily anticipated and avoided.

  • You Get Leadership Principles Grounded in Bioscience Application

Our Tune-Up program does not leave you swimming in the theoretical trying to find relevance to what you face. Instead, our content is grounded in real-life bioscience examples of what happens when one does and does not have a sufficient command of the six elements of leadership.

  •  It's a Method Tailored to Your Needs

The method of guided self-assessment allows you to work at your own pace. The program has flexibility and ample time to dig deep into your most significant concerns; while providing concrete ways to study and implement changes guided by best practices, case studies, and relevant bioscience experience.  

The platform integrates the opportunity to interact within each module.

Live weekly sessions allow us to broaden the discussion or dig deeper into topics, much like a Mastermind.

  • I Win When You Win

You’ll get honest advice from someone who cares about increasing your impact almost as much as you do because I raise my impact by successfully helping you.  To that end, I share lessons learned, insights, and realizations I arrived at over many years, detailed within a program that I wish I’d had.

You’ll boost your bioscience leadership upon the shoulders of my experience—of being where you are in creating high-impact bioscience solutions.

Whether you’re facing management, complex science, or development challenges, you’ll tap into my concept to market experience for that leg up, strengthened by the best in business management research and practice–instead of having to learn from mistakes that you could have avoided.

  • I Work Only With People I Can Help

I will not accept your application if the program is not a good fit.  Together, we’ll make sure it is right for you.  

If, after chatting, we conclude that the program is not what would benefit you at this time, I’ll suggest some alternatives to consider.  

We care about you achieving a positive outcome.  Therefore, helping you in the right way is first and foremost.

  •  I’m Here for You

You’ll have a dedicated e-mail and my mobile number to contact me with problems or questions. If you find you could use additional help on specific confidential issues, we can schedule a time to talk about working together more closely.

BTW: here's what our meeting will NOT be...

So that you know, your 30-minute meeting will not be a sales pitch.

Frankly, I want you to leave the meeting with an accurate idea of what the program is about and what will be asked of you. Without it, I’d be doing you a disservice. 

You know how it is … literacy isn't mastery … the map is not the territory … and all those truisms. 

It's better that I'm upfront with you about what it takes to fine-tune leadership practices, so things stick. To gain the most benefit, it will require that you are prepared to approach the guided self-assessments in earnest, are prepared to practice a few things, and take full advantage of the live sessions–the Tune-Up version of a mastermind.

If it turns out you'd benefit more from something different at this time, I'll make some suggestions and may point you to other resources.

And here's what I'll need from you when you apply or book a time to chat...

You'll be asked to confirm:

  • You've attended the full Executive Briefing on Bioscience Leadership. If not, you can reserve a seat here.
  • You are a senior industry scientist, engineer, entrepreneur, or founder (specific titles don't matter) who has primary responsibility for one or more company-defining (i.e., major) bioscience programs.
  • You have a current budget to pay the fees of either $18,000 upfront or $2,200 monthly over 9 months.
  • You are prepared to begin soon after you are accepted...

OK … so if you're ready to get started, you can go directly to the application or, if you aren't sure it's for you, let's talk. You'll be asked to confirm your responses to the 4 criteria above before continuing. I’ll really look forward to meeting you.
