Stephanie O'Hagan


Summary of work

Stephanie has a real passion and skill for ensuring the patient is at the heart of everything. Stephanie never forgets that patients are indeed the only thing that really matter in healthcare communications and she expertly coaches and upskills her teams and clients to deliver communications programmes that really hinge on this. She reminds us that we are all patients, that patients are all people and that digital and social media is the language we all speak in. Through this passion, Stephanie has dramatically expanded her agency’s client base, identified opportunities for industry-unique partnerships, delivered award-winning and game-changing communications programmes for her clients and striven to make a digital expert of every member of her team. Stephanie makes light work of breaking down borders on a daily basis and makes our industry all the richer for it.
