Excellence in Corporate Communications – Internal Stakeholders
Excellence in Corporate Communications – External Stakeholders

WHO are we? Founded in 1998, Oxford PharmaGenesis is an award-winning, independent, global HealthScience consultancy providing communications services to the healthcare industry, professional societies and patient groups. We’re supporting clients globally with over 400 people, in offices and remotely, across Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific.

  • excellence in our thinking, our client service and our delivery of outstanding communications

  • dedication and professionalism in everything we do.

WHY are we different? We understand that our clients are people, and we know that we can be successful by helping them to be successful – by listening, by advising and by being outstandingly good at what we do, wherever it’s needed, whenever it’s needed, whatever it takes.

Page and Page and Partners

Sponsor of: Excellence in Engagement Through Digital Channels

In order to imagine a better life, we first need to see the world through someone else’s eyes – doing this enables us to think differently; to implement and craft new solutions to real-life challenges, gaining insights that form the foundation of all our communications.

At Page & Page and Partners, we do this by applying imagination and empathy; to do this effectively takes discipline. Our risk mitigating process ensures that all our projects follow a tight, transparent framework. We gather the findings to develop insights that determine a vision that results in a strategy, which informs our campaigns and tactics.

What we do and how we do it
Every campaign we develop is based upon an audience insight. It’s using this insight creatively that ensures our clients meet their business objectives. We describe it as effective creativity from better process.

We spend a lot of time with our heads down, working hard on campaigns. But every now and again, we think it’s healthy to put the day-to-day work to one side and consider some of the bigger issues; how to help our clients win the race for relevance.

Page & Page and Partners isn’t the only agency with insights; we don’t have the monopoly on imaginative ideas and we aren’t the only bunch of scientists, strategists and creatives with empathy, but we probably are the only independent (and yet global) agency that offers all this in one neat package.
