The PharmaTimes Marketing Awards competition is a good opportunity for individuals to benchmark themselves against peers but also put themselves to the test in a real-life simulation challenge and gain feedback. Led by senior industry professionals to recognise and assess the industry's top marketers.
Danny McCormick, sales and marketing manager, oncology, at Merck Serono, and co-chair of the competition’s executive steering committee, said: “PharmaTimes Marketing Awards competition sets itself apart from other competitions by focusing solely on the individual’s and team’s marketing skills, expertise and thinking. There is a major focus on professional development in the form of feedback, which every entrant is encouraged to receive from the judges on a one-to-one basis, and in networking with industry peers.”
