The prestigious PharmaTimes Sales Awards are recognised for their highly beneficial and rewarding challenges, and last year’s finalists and winners have chipped in to explain what’s so great about the process.

Winner of the Orphan/Rare Disease Sales Professional of the Year category, Pfizer’s Patrick Chapman, praised the competition on its unique benefits, saying that the Sales Awards “was a great experience for me. It was great to get recognition from the wider industry, as this isn’t something which is traditionally common in Pharma.”

He continued, “As a relatively young person in an industry dominated by experienced heads, having this feather to my cap when it comes to developments discussions has been of great use”.

Patrick’s participation and success has been of tremendous benefit to his career, as he was able to take the experience and feedback and apply it directly to his future performance. He later added that the competition was “an overall great experience that I would encourage others to go for”.

However, it’s not just about receiving the pharma trophy and being crowned a winner, there’s also multiple other opportunities for candidates to develop and hone their skills by taking part in this unique event.

Iris Nelson of Sanofi, finalist in the Secondary Care Sales Professional of the Year category said:

“The competition itself is so extremely well organised and run. It’s always good to try something different, and it’s a great experience! This process has benefitted me in that it has given me more confidence in what I do”.

The Sales Awards have been designed to ensure that all candidates walk away having partaken in a beneficial and worthwhile experience. All finalists receive a feedback report from a panel of industry experts which will no doubt help to directly improve candidates’ sales performance.

This was concurred by Sanofi’s Paul Dickson, Winner of the Secondary Care Sales Professional Category, who confirmed that “the feedback given was really constructive and I’ve taken the learnings forward into my every day interactions with customers".
