Laura Newmark

Litmus MME

Summary of work

Joining Litmus as a graduate, Laura quickly established herself as a trusted team member.

These early foundations showcased Laura’s potential and it came as no surprise to her colleagues that Laura was awarded a team leadership role after just 18 months with the team. Laura now leads four large accounts.

Laura’s flair for faculty-led educational programmes has led her to become an ambassador for these projects within Litmus, ensuring the work that Litmus is best known for maintains the high standard the healthcare community has come to expect and also that we continue to support the reputation of the pharmaceutical industry. Laura has successfully adapted these programmes according to the specific client needs, the therapy area, the target audience and the healthcare environment. In the last year alone she has delivered two international congress booths, a congress symposium, 10 faculty educational meetings, two strategic planning workshops and five faculty meetings as well as the launch of a website and the development of a number of online and printed educational activities.

Laura’s natural coaching and supportive approach has made her transition to a team leader and mentor seamless, and her drive to share best practice and maintain quality within Litmus has established a broader role for Laura within Litmus.

Judges comments

Laura is a clearly valued and very confident – and competent – operator who is clearly able to build good KOL relationships and client trust. She still has a lot more to show in this industry, but excelled in her delivery and would be great as a team lead.
