Upon graduating with a Biomedical degree, pursuing career at Hanson Wade really appealed to me. Given my long term career goals, this was an opportunity to continue researching areas of progression within medicine whilst developing my business understanding and skillset.
Joining the CDx Engage team as a Bespoke Event Producer, I embarked upon a steep learning curve as I began taking calls with senior clients and biopharma leaders within the focused and fast-paced Biomarkers & Diagnostics industry. As the first to have this role, I was definitely challenged by stepping into a position where the path forward was not so well forged, although I was driven and excited by the prospect of developing and growing a new portfolio within the business.
As I produced and advised on client-led and internally validated events, including workshops, one day masterminds, exclusive networking events and deep-dive webinars; then curating focused audiences to be in attendance, my role involved me understanding and meeting the business development goals of clients. Meeting this end goal included creating compelling copy for website & in-market campaigns, in addition to working closely with other business functions, to ultimately deliver outstanding quality of content and event execution on-site (whether in-person or digitally!). All this led me to develop efficient time-management balanced across multiple projects, research skills and effective communication based on solid scientific and commercial understanding. Having designed a new website, launched novel event products to market and worked on the creation of processes for new products, there were always opportunities for me to expand my impact on the business and autonomously develop skill sets I had an interest in honing in on.
Now, transitioning into the Brand Director role in the core production team, I produce larger scale events. Remaining with the Biomarkers & Diagnostics community, I’m able to leverage and further develop strong relationships with industry leaders to build credible meeting agendas representing the cutting edge of industry progress. This role pushes me to be creative, a problem solver and think strategically on a daily basis so I can deliver successful in-market campaigns in collaboration with cross-functional teams. Alongside my work, I’m a member of the ‘Wellbeing Champion’ team; a role equipping me with an understanding and awareness of supporting colleagues struggling with mental health.
I look forward to continue delivering content and connections of real value, to play a part in enabling scientific communities progressing game changing medicines towards patients faster – all whilst growing my skillset as I forge my corporate career.
