Willoughby Badger

Chandler Chicco Agency

Summary of work

Having joined Chandler Chicco Agency in 2011, in just two years Willoughby has been able to convert his instinctive ability as a communicator into tangible benefits for his clients and colleagues through exceptional diligence and consistent delivery of work surpassing his level of experience.

In early 2012, Willoughby (known as ‘Badger’ both to colleagues and clients) seamlessly developed and delivered a series of market access and payer engagement workshops to full-time market access professionals. The account should prove prolific in terms of company development through 2013 and his resultant passion for HEOR is evident from his commitment to best practice sharing amongst colleagues through internal training sessions. Willoughby has established himself as a media expert within Chandler Chicco Companies; he pioneers altruistic PR-journalist relationships and upholds relationships with reputable KOLs to garner results and to achieve long-term PR success.

Beyond account responsibilities, Willoughby is committed to company new business across the inVentiv Health affiliate network, he is a member of the company CSR team and maintains a proactive awareness of the digital communications environment and runs the annual CCC Ping-Pong Championship!

“Willoughby is a tremendous addition to our team. He is gracious, intelligent, and has no sense of limitation. Willoughby’s all-round work ethic is impressive by anyone’s standards, but where he has particularly excelled is in the area of media relations. He has the unique ability to package a story of scientific innovation, but also to add the right level of human interest to really bring the impact to life. He has worked with journalists at the highest level, producing some truly extraordinary coverage.”
David Kane PhD, inVentiv Health Communications, European Managing Director, Public Relations

Judges comments

Willoughby has a fantastically contagious energy, bags of enthusiasm, great insight and incredible learning agility. A great team player, he seems to have a unique mix of talents with in-depth market access knowledge and media understanding. Having already undertaken a really nice blend of different types of initiatives in his comparatively short career he is definitely one to watch.
