Sponsor of: PMEA Company of the Year

Imagine an agency where your programmes are both conceived and delivered through to completion by the same senior team. Where you can be assured you will receive consistent, high-quality, imaginative work from a trusted partner that will create, challenge (where appropriate) and care for your business. Where authenticity, a sense of fun and bringing energy to everything we do is as important to us as delivering on time, on budget and to the highest standards. That’s what we stand by and that’s why we’re here.

Let us prove it to you. Visit for more information about our communications, media relations, patient engagement, disease awareness and medical education services.

Havas Life Medicom

Sponsor of: Excellence in Capability Development

Building successful healthcare brands has never been harder: there’s more competition, more noise, and more pressure on healthcare professionals to deliver better care in less time. The result is that brands have never had such a low share of voice and 50% of new medicines fail to meet their launch expectations. We’re built to help brands succeed in today’s environment – built to create meaningful connections with doctors at an unprecedented scale. We blend marketing, medical science and creativity to create compelling and behaviour-changing communications. But what really sets us apart is our expertise on the platforms and content that health professionals use to inform themselves about clinical practice. We know what they want to see, where, and in which formats, which gives the brands we work with a huge advantage.

We don’t just believe we can make brands more effective, we have the data to demonstrate it.

And as a Havas agency, we are part of a network of 40,000 people around the world. This means faster delivery, greater efficiency and consistency, and, most importantly, access to more expert brains who blend together to help achieve better outcomes.

So, what’s next? In our quest to become even better, we’re always looking for brilliant people to hire and wonderful clients to work alongside.
