Their international team has staff drawn from diverse backgrounds in academia, scientific writing, clinical research and pharma industry sales and marketing, all having huge experience in developing global and regional campaigns, as well as local implementation.

The agency believe in a customer-centric approach to marketing. All of their big ideas start with strategy and are media-neutral. Truly big ideas can be behaviour changing and ultimately, game changing.
