Summary of work


Having reached one summit in 2018, last year was about aiming higher still. The external outlook was challenging: political headwinds swirling, and clients continually challenging MHP to articulate how policy change drove back to commercial success.

Rather than doubling down on what worked before, we took a risk in 2019. MHP argued that decision-makers can be motivated in just the same way as anyone: by telling compelling and simple stories. This led to innovative tactics: from a 13-minute documentary on severe asthma to a leading public affairs campaign on research funding based around just two words.

We pushed our clients to the limit in these novel tactical executions, but the results speak for themselves. Major policy change delivered in dementia, stigma shattered in HIV, and a transformative way of ‘doing policy’ embedded across every function of a global pharmaceutical. Along the way we chalked new wins and expanded mandates. 8% growth enabled our Practice to invest in our existing talent and bring 17 new people into the business, with backgrounds in the UK Government, research sector and professional colleges. If 2019 had a theme for MHP, it was to keep on climbing.

Judges' comments

ENGINE MHP were articulate and told their story in a compelling way. They provided excellent examples of their work which importantly were evidence and results based. They used their creative skills to demonstrate policy issues, this is often lacking in this discipline area.  Engine MHP’s thought leadership approach showed leadership and gravitas. An outstanding team with deep knowledge and great team spirit.
