BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER
WHAT I DO
Supporting your team with the right experience at the right time.
Science informing sales
Training materials - Patient Information
My scientific background and experience as an MSL/MSM gives me a broader perspective that I can apply to sales training and marketing alike. I have experience in the development of patient information and support materials, working closely with patient organisations and charities to ensure material is educational and meaningful for the patients they’re designed to help.
Speedy application to your needs
Interim cover - Supporting teams - Secondments
My sales experience is primarily in speciality brands where my medical/scientific knowledge means I can get up to speed quickly to provide cover or additional resources when the pressure is on. I can provide interim cover focussing on the East Anglian region, either supporting existing team members or filling a gap when you want to take time to fill that full term post.
Targetted help when time is short
Copy approval processing - Development of campaigns and materials
From my time as Brand Manager for a number of speciality care brands, I know there is never enough time to get everything done. I offer an additional resource in the form of experienced pair of hands (and head) to support your existing team without the need for increased headcount. Experience with both Mercury and Zinc systems means I can be productive quickly to help with the development and copy approval of materials and new campaigns.
Perfect for start-ups and small biotechs
Business development - Commercial agreements
With a background in business development and licensing in the biotechnology sector, I’m the perfect resource for a start-up or small biotech company who needs to get a new business moving but doesn’t need a full time Business Development Manager.
Bringing it all together
Medical, commercial, marketing and sales
Bringing it all together – the essence of good branding is getting your medical, marketing and sales aligned, and for me Juneberry is all about bringing together each element of my experience to meet your needs.
