Team Novo Nordisk Launch

Summary of work

Winner: Team Novo Nordisk Launch

In December 2012 Novo Nordisk, the global leader in diabetes, announced a unique partnership to form Team Novo Nordisk, a sports team of people with diabetes, spearheaded by the world’s first all-diabetes professional cycling team. Team Novo Nordisk formed part of the Changing Diabetes® programme, the Novo Nordisk global corporate commitment to improve conditions for people living with diabetes today and those at risk of developing diabetes tomorrow.

The agency was tasked with creating a comprehensive programme to announce the partnership to internal and external stakeholders. An insight-driven, strategic campaign delivered high-impact results with an innovative and engaging internal launch and extensive global external communication outreach, and exceeded objectives and targets.

Judges comments

An excellent campaign with a highly appropriate strategy and clear objectives. This was a strong execution of a fun concept that linked Novo Nordisk to diabetes and then diabetes to sport and cycling, engaging and inspiring patients with diabetes via a number of different media channels. This project made us proud of what can be achieved through great comms - it’s the sort of initiative that all of the judges agreed they would want to be a part of.
