Tabitha Grindrod

Virgo Health

Summary of work

Now more than ever the healthcare industry needs good communicators that are trustworthy, future-facing and place patients’ needs at the heart of what we do. Every day, Tabitha is driven by a passion for this purpose and for the people around her. She is an exceptional team member, client counsel and communications professional who makes a difference to the patients involved in campaigns or the people she works with every day.

As an account leader, Tabitha builds trusted relationships that enable her to help clients look ahead and rise to the growing expectations of the outside world. Yet it’s not just her clients that benefit from her expertise, Tabitha is highly business-focused and is responsible for significant agency growth. She also helped Virgo evolve our insights capabilities by building bridges with Golin’s data and analytics team.

Tabitha is an unparalleled communications professional, who’s found unique opportunities to make a genuine difference to the lives of people with cancer and helped her client pivot to become a people-focused organisation. Her work with the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation was both creative and meticulously executed, delivering a standout year.

Alongside all this, Tabitha is a much-loved member of the team who embodies Virgo’s ‘Being Human’ culture, whether that’s going the extra mile for fellow team members or organising brilliant socials (Bubbles and Brushes was a big hit!). Plus, through her role as a Virgo Cultural Ambassador she champions the voice of our employees and helps Virgo become an even better place to work.
