Ffyona Dawber has scooped two prestigious Stevie® Awards at the 11th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business held in New York, beating 10 others on the night to receive Gold in the category of “Female Entrepreneur of the Year”, and Silver in the “Woman of The Year” category.

Ffyona is the managing director of medical communications agency Synergy Vision, which she founded in 2007 and has grown from 25 projects to 350 in just seven years. The awards were presented at an exciting gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Friday, November 14, which was broadcast live across the U.S.A. and simulcast around the world.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s top honours for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run.

The 2014 awards received entries from 22 nations and territories. Further information contact: Caroline Cooper Tel : 020 7625 0050 email: caroline.cooper@synergy-vision.com More than 1,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes were submitted for consideration this year in more than 90 categories. The complete list of Stevie Award Winners is available at www.StevieAwards.com/Women.

These impressive awards reflect Ffyona’s continued success, and that of Synergy Vision. Ffyona, a former clinical specialist with significant experience in the pharmaceutical industry, recognised a gap in the market for a specialist medical communications agency that truly understands the requirements of pharmaceutical companies. Synergy Vision goes the extra mile to deliver the difference to its clients by offering a unique perspective – a synergy of pharma and agency experience, solid communications know-how, passion for science, and events management flair.

Synergy Vision’s strong relationship with their clients is based on trust, and many clients consider Synergy Vision an extension of their own brand teams. To receive not only one, but two Stevie® Awards is a fitting testament to Ffyona’s continued commitment and dedication to the company’s core values.

Of her win, Ffyona says: “since I set up Synergy Vision, the company and client base has grown but the vision of delivering high quality medical communications has remained the same. It is wonderful to be recognised for all the hard work, thank you.” Congratulations to a most deserving winner!
