An agency called Owen


We’re not like the others.

We’re an independent brand and marketing agency, and we specialise in pharmaceutical, biotech and medtech.

And that’s where we start deviating from the ‘agency’ norm.

We’re not different in a sad, skulking-in-the-corner kind of way. But we’re not loud show-offs either. Imagine fusing the DNA of the class geek with the cool kid. That’s us.

In fact, if you took a close look at our DNA, you’d see little molecules of multi-sector experience and digital know-how. And smiling up the electron microscope at you, you’d also see some of the strongest strategic thinkers you’re likely to meet this side of a grandmasters’ chess tournament.

It’s a cocktail that makes us a bit different. But different is good. That’s why we get calls saying ‘Hey Owen, do something different for us’.

Lemons + us = lemonade

A lot of agencies have forgotten they’re hired to solve problems. We haven’t.

We’ve worked with enough life science companies to know the industry is facing one or two challenges. You know, stuff like payers demanding lower prices and improved outcomes, empowered patients expecting better care, access to HCPs decreasing and the rise in generics. You need someone to help you with those problems. 

And as an external agency, we’re in a position to ask the (sometimes difficult) probing questions, so you don’t have to. Then we can work out what’s needed and find the right answer for you.

So when life gives you lemons, call us.

‘So you’re a healthcare specialist generalist then?’

The industry hasn’t come up with a decent business description for our agency proposition yet (that’s the price of being different). But yes, ‘healthcare specialist generalist’ is about the size of it.

In short, we specialise in life sciences. Then that specialism is augmented by our senior team having three decades of business to consumer and business to business experience.

They’ve worked with some of the world’s biggest corporate cheeses, in a range of industry sectors, such as BBC, BP, IBM, Lush Cosmetics, Nintendo and SABMiller. So we know your world, and we’re able to draw on lessons we’ve learned from other sectors to lend a fresh perspective.

We’re digital veterans.

We’re not wobbling around on walking sticks yet, (though there are a couple of ‘sporting injuries’). But our team has got long-in-the-tooth industry experience. 

For example, they could tell you stories about some of the first websites ever launched. Or the time the UK government asked for advice on social media. 

Then there was the contribution they made to Google’s digital training programme. And the gold Cyber Lion for viral marketing. Or the European social listening project for a FTSE100 before Facebook was even a glint in Zuckerberg’s eye. 

We could go on… 

So that’s why people hire us. In a nutshell.

Of course there’s more to say. But that’s the gist of it.

You’ll be pleased to hear the consensus is we’re even more interesting in real, living and breathing, three dimensional life. So we hope you’ll get in touch.

Areas of Expertise

A lot of companies in the pharma and medtech sectors stick to plain old vanilla for their sales and marketing strategies.

We’ve cooked up something different. And without giving too much away (it is a secret recipe, after all), it involves: 
  • stakeholder-centricity
  • branding and value propositions
  • account-based marketing
  • multi-channel marketing
  • digital, social and content. 
Smart and talented specialists tend to roam free, sitting in coffee houses, parks and designer home offices with their state-of-the-art laptops. (Go on, hate them for a second and get it out of your system.)

Now think of them as your allies – we have access to the best of the best, so we complement our own in-house core team by calling on our network of niche brains for hire when you need their specialist skills in, say... 
  • strategy and planning
  • research and insights
  • data and analytics
  • brand, design and packaging
  • advertising and direct marketing campaigns
  • print and production
  • events and exhibitions
  • email and marketing automation
  • websites, apps and e-detailing
  • SEO, social and content
  • paid social and paid search. 
Basically, we can offer you more brain for your buck.
