Entry to the inaugural PharmaTimes Sales Awards - established to recognise and celebrate the very best sales professionals in the industry today - will close today.

The competition, which is free to enter, accepts both nominations and direct entries for up to eight different categories, including Key Account Manager of the Year, Field Based Sales Trainer/Coach and Orphan/Rare Disease Sales Professional of the Year.

“Highlighting the real difference that individual sales people can deliver to both patients and HCP’s, this competition offers a crucial opportunity for learning and development against an ever changing and often complex landscape,” said Luci Sargood, PharmaTimes business manager and competition lead.

“Wherever you are in your career there’s a category for you – don’t hesitate and miss out.”

The three-stage competition is a novel one, as it’s the first and only pharmaceutical sales awards whereby the representatives are evaluated by the clients they have worked with.

Winners will be announced alongside the Marketer and Communications Team of the Year Awards at the Tower Hotel in London on Thursday 15th November.
