Determining value to withstand all tests
Rikki Jones considers the role of communications in defining and telling a product’s value story.

Testimonials

“GCI Health London continuously thrives on and delivers against the challenges that global programming can present. The team is very much an extension of our own, a trusted position they have rightly earned. Strategically they work to help navigate an ever changing landscape, never resting on their laurels to be a team that just ‘does the do’, they are with us every step of way. I have huge praise for their enthusiastic solutions-based approach, which was key to our 2013 success – including the delivery of one program in particular that is hailed as our company’s most successful patient targeted campaign to date, involving implementation oversight across 20 countries. I’m truly thankful for what my collaboration with GCI Health has delivered, for which they should feel very proud.”
Global communications lead

“GCI Health is a strategically minded and enthusiastic partner who has worked alongside our European business, supporting a number of high-level projects and issues. GCI Health is hands-on when it comes to implementing strategy and supporting our affiliates. Together we have achieved a great number of critical objectives, many of them focused on the delivery of new treatments to patients. We continue to be strong partners working towards equally important goals.  The team has proven themselves to be accommodating, nimble and a pleasure to work with. Their forward-looking approach is commendable and very appreciated – they are deserving of every success.”
European communications lead  

“We selected GCI Health as our agency partner as we were impressed by their offer that combines the personalised service of a small agency with the impact and professionalism more commonly found in larger organisations.  Historically, we had an ad-hoc approach to communications and within a matter of weeks of agreeing a programme with GCI Health, we had a presence across all social media platforms, a schedule of content to put the organisation at the forefront of the key issues in the management of respiratory disease, and executive committee agreement on a business strategy, vision and mission to present to our sponsors. We found the GCIH team to be dynamic, motivated and engaged, a pleasure to work with. That we experienced increased visibility across the media and our enhanced profile amongst our sponsors in such a short time is a testimony to the GCI Health’s team passion and drive.”
