From the Ranch to the Research Industry

In the late 1980s, after raising 3 children on a cattle ranch in a small Texas town, Patricia "Pat" Bingham joined a Dallas-based company who primarily organized incentive trips around major sporting events like the Masters, the Super Bowl, and the Olympics. By the mid 1990s, her passion and focus had shifted to Investigators' Meetings in the life sciences industry. 

Adversity struck when Pat's husband, Lewis, was diagnosed with cancer. Despite resigning from her position to be at home with him, Pat continued her work independently, which provided her with financial stability and a sense of purpose. 

In late 1995, Pat founded Meeting Protocol from her home. Within months, she successfully executed her first meeting at the Four Seasons Hotel in Newport Beach. The flourishing business became a family affair as Pat's children joined her one by one. By 2000, Meeting Protocol had grown into a global operation, prompting a name change to Meeting Protocol Worldwide. 

 

Forging a New Path as Scout

The company chose to rebrand as Scout in 2024. This decision, born out of our commitment to embody the values of agility, resourcefulness, and relentless pursuit of excellence, signifies our unwavering dedication to innovate while remaining patient-centric.  

With a unified brand identity, we are better positioned to expertly navigate the complexities of today's dynamic life sciences landscape and deliver tailored services to our clients. As Scout, we continue our desire to empower and support our partners in their quest for better health outcomes.
