London-based medical communications agency, Synergy Vision, is thrilled to be named the PharmaTimes Media International Communication Agency Team of the Year 2014.

Winning this prestigious award offers great recognition of the talent and experience of the Synergy Vision team, and consolidates their reputation for consistently delivering the difference to clients in the pharma industry.

The PharmaTimes Award is unique in the pharmaceutical industry, recognising the increasingly diverse disciplines involved in healthcare communications, from medical education to PR, public affairs, government relations and market access. Five members of Synergy Vision from the medical writing and account management teams were invited to the PharmaTimes competition final, which took place on 25 September 2014.

Finalists participated in a real-world challenge that was provided to them on arrival, giving the teams no opportunity for prior preparation, and designed to illustrate key agency competencies. In less than two hours, the Synergy Vision team used quick and creative thinking to surpass expectations in preparing and delivering a 20-minute pitch to support communications for a recently launched statin.

The judging panel of senior industry marketers were impressed with the teams “breadth of knowledge and passion for the work which they were able to clearly communicate.”

Synergy Vision fought off stiff competition from a range of healthcare communications agencies, from smaller independents to large corporate organisations. Synergy Vision is an independent agency who have grown from strength to strength, quickly establishing itself as a leading market competitor with a unique combination of pharma and agency experience that focus on delivering clients specific needs. The agency has enjoyed great success since it was set up 7 years ago, being recognised in awards for customer focus, medical education consultancy, and leadership.

Ffyona, Managing Director of Synergy Vision, comments “this PharmaTimes International Communication Agency Team of the Year award is a huge honour and accolade to win, and a real milestone in the company’s journey. It highlights our ability to think creatively and quickly, which are key skills our clients benefit from, ensuring they come back to us time and time again.”
