We’re a long established, close-knit team
with extensive backgrounds in pharma marketing and leadership, communications and patient advocacy, and the lived experience of life-threatening illness. Our award-winning results speak for themselves.
We use facilitation skills and emotional intelligence to make collaboration easy, enjoyable and productive. When it’s needed, we bring in specialist expertise from our broad network of associates. A highly supportive, positive culture is at the heart of everything we do. Our clients stay with us because they trust us to get the job done well and they know we’ll make the process enjoyable along the way.
Our approach enables pharma companies and their customers to become allies, moving beyond the transactional and cultivating productive relationships based on shared goals and values. Our aim is for everyone involved to recognise the impact they can achieve – and to be proud that, together, we’re making a real difference to patients’ lives.

She’s devoted to the NHS, and a passionate patient advocate, especially since being successfully treated for non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2014.
She’s obsessed by finding win-win-win solutions based on patients’ needs that also deliver on business, clinical and personal objectives.
