PMGroup are very grateful to the following sponsors for their support of the
2019 Communiqué Awards programme and for their commitment to supporting
excellence in Healthcare Communications.


Sponsor of: Excellence in Professional Education Programmes

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.


Sponsor of: The 90TEN Award for Excellence in Media Relations

We are a global healthcare communications consultancy that makes people healthier and happier through life-changing education and communications.

Our public relations, medical education and advocacy programmes are designed to make a difference by improving outcomes for patients, health professionals and clients using behavioural science. We help people understand health and access the treatments they need and inform doctors so they can prescribe life-changing medicines.

90TEN was named both Mid-Sized and Specialist Consultancy of the Year at the PRWeek Awards 2018. At the 2017 Communiqué Awards, 90TEN scooped the Communications Consultancy of the Year, Medical Education Consultancy of the Year, and Most Innovative Campaign of the Year awards.

90TEN has worked with clinical and behavioural psychologists to develop our own evidence-based change methodology called FEEL-THINK-DO™, that we apply to every communications challenge. FEEL-THINK-DO™ is built upon our understanding of human behaviour; what makes people tick, what stops them from taking action, and how they like to learn. By understanding our audience, we can determine the simple steps to inspire meaningful change. This approach, and a culture that celebrates courage, allows 90TEN to develop programmes that truly push boundaries in their execution.

90TEN is comprised of three specialist consultancies:

  • 90TEN Communications: public relations and creative communications
  • 90TEN Medical: medical education and scientific services
  • 20SENSES: advocacy and patient engagement programmes

We are part of the Baird’s CMC network of independent consultancies, which provides direct access to communications specialists in over 50 countries and across all continents of the globe.

We pride ourselves on hiring and developing the best and brightest talent; cultivating life-changing careers; representing world-famous brands; and solving complex commercial issues with creativity and original thinking.
