Continuing on from Catherine’s words, the finals day and challenges have been expertly designed by our executive steering panel of top industry figures to ensure that they accurately reflect current trends, whilst also supplying an enjoyable and testing challenge for entrants.

Moriam Adetokunboh-Ajala of Boehringer Ingelheim, Highly-Commended in the Medical Information Professional of the Year, also shared her positive experience with the finals day, claiming that “it was very well organised and although the assessment process was intensive it was very beneficial”.

Moriam then later added that the competition was “a great opportunity to network, sharpen our skills, and has already proven to be great exposure”.

The assessment process sees candidates carry out a mixture of presentations, exercises, and an interview; these vary between the different categories. The process has been designed to offer all candidates the unique opportunity to reflect and improve upon their skills via detailed feedback reports.

Claire Gascoigne from Lundbeck, Highly-Commended in the New Medical Science Liaison of the Year concurred with Catherine and Moriam, adding that the assessment day was “an enjoyable day and a great learning curve to reflect back on, everyone involved was supportive”.
