About

pharmaphorum connect is a consultancy providing first-class strategic and creative content services to pharmaceutical companies and other healthcare organisations.

We conduct research, develop strategy, create compelling content and drive customer engagement for our clients, using experience and connections from our unique publishing heritage.

Our project experience spans multiple communications and marketing areas, including corporate, brand, medical, patient experience/advocacy, R&D/partnering, innovation, HR/recruitment and internal engagement. We have a team with expertise spanning all major therapeutic areas and many niche ones, including several rare diseases.

Our clients span the healthcare sector, including global pharmaceutical companies, mid-size biopharma, biotech, service providers, patient organisations / charities and healthcare providers.

We also work collaboratively with external partners, including communications / marketing agencies, physician / patient communities, technology providers, contract research organisations and many others.

Why we’re unique

Healthcare stakeholders are bombarded with content from multiple channels and have extremely limited attention spans.

For companies looking to communicate their messages, the key differentiators are quality of content and resonance – tapping into what really interests their audiences.

We are digital natives and adept storytellers. We draw upon our connectivity with all healthcare stakeholders and have collective experience spanning journalism, creative writing and design to deliver unique media.

The result is content strategies and creative that cuts through the noise.

We combine all these skills and connectivity to deliver impactful results for our clients.

We are publishers, consultants and creatives bringing healthcare together.

“Thanks for all the great work you do!
We couldn’t do it without you.”

Our history

pharmaphorum connect was born out of the pharmaphorum.com publication, when an industry client was so impressed with a multimedia project delivered through our channels that they asked if we could help them deliver better content through theirs.

From our early days of supporting pharmaceutical industry clients and other organisations with social media and website creative, our offerings have organically expanded to provide end-to-end services for developing and implementing effective content marketing and communications campaigns.
