Summary of work

Jessica Smith

Jessica has an infectious optimism and energy for her work; combined with her passion and unwavering belief in the value our industry brings to the healthcare arena, she provides strategic council beyond her years of experience, which in turn drives change in the way our industry is perceived. Applying this belief, her honest, focused and aspirational approach to the healthcare landscape allows her to deliver for clients time and time again across a spectrum of circumstances.

Developing and championing bold communication strategies, Jessica has delivered for her clients and has impacted our industry as a whole. Since joining Virgo Jessica has become an ambassador for healthcare communications within the global network of our parent company Golin.

Embracing geography as an opportunity to extend our experiences, expertise and opportunities, Jessica is a driving force to our agency growth and the service we provide to our clients. Now spearheading Virgo’s global strategy for the communications division Jessica has put Virgo well and truly on the Golin map by winning a Gold at the 2015 Golin ‘Go All In’ internal awards - the only healthcare entry to have been recognised alongside fierce competition from leading global consumer brands.

Judges' comments

Jessica thoroughly impressed each and every one of the judges with her all-round abilities. She is very natural, refreshingly without ego, and demonstrated fantastic results for her agency. Mature, honest and so insightful for her years, the judges agreed she was a clear winner and every single judge would want Jessica on their team!
