Paul may well be the most well qualified healthcare communications recruitment consultant in the UK but his PR and commercial experience goes much farther than that. He has worked in the pharmaceutical industry as both a sales representative and marketer for Merck and Abbott, but has spent the majority of his career (at least 20 years) in healthcare communications. He worked his way from account person to senior leadership positions in global public relations, medical education and advertising agencies within the Omnicom and Publicis networks (Ketchum, FleishmanHillard, Publicis LifeBrands) and as joint founder and CEO of Intelligent Health Communications; comprising Resolute Communications, Resolute Communications Corporation (US) and Real Science, one of Europe's largest international healthcare public relations and medical education group companies, now Publicis LifeBrands Resolute. He brings enormous insight into the attributes needed for success in communications roles and is uniquely placed to advise candidates and clients on how to achieve success.
Beverley's communications career spans ten years and has encompassed advertising, pharmaceutical marketing and publishing but has focussed predominantly on PR and medical education in permanent and freelance positions within healthcare agencies. These included Hill & Knowlton, Ketchum and MSL. She has an extensive network of resources and a flair for candidate assessment.
