I have owned my own business almost all of my professional life. Therefore entrepreneurial thinking is second nature to me.
Why did I start a business based on medical education? My original degree is in maths and education. Having graduated, I began my career as a researcher at University of Bonn where I conducted studies on methods, formats and channels with the aim to improve communication, long-term retention of information and learning. Soon this raised the interest of healthcare sponsors who then commissioned me to work for them as a freelancer.
infill and I have provided consultancy services and communication solutions for pharmaceutical companies and international medical societies for more than 20 years now. These include innovative global CME projects, interactive learning tools and concepts for medical education. My latest passion is to introduce the multichannel approach into medical education to increase its appeal, user friendliness and the usability of information.
Like any agency lead, I get excited by awards and prizes. What fires me up even more is the fact that our work can have a direct impact on people’s wellbeing – particularly when we share the proceeds with those who are less fortunate.
As the Chief Operating Officer I am infill’s second-in-command and responsible for the efficiency of our business. In this position I ensure the functionality of our processes and by this extensive and sustainable growth of the company.
I am also the digital lead and head up a team of IT colleagues who manage and develop individual solutions for our clients. Amongst them are: digital strategy, individual app solutions, website project management as well as virtual and onsite event management.
My passion is finding innovative and effective solutions that drive our clients’ businesses.
After attaining my MBBS and intercalated BSc (Hons) from King’s College School of Medicine and Dentistry, London, I worked as a physician in the UK before moving to Germany. In 2006, I joined infill as a medical writer, and became a partner in the firm in 2009.
Combined with my experience in a wide range of disease areas, my insights into the needs of healthcare professionals and patients coupled with a burning passion for medical education, inspire me to work enthusiastically on the development of healthcare communication and training programmes. My principal goal is to optimise medical practice by increasing knowledge, confidence and competence in both doctors and patients, with the ultimate aim of improving patient outcomes.
Interaction and collaboration with leading international medical experts in order to develop clinically relevant educational resources for a variety of multimedia channels as well as face-to-face events, meetings and presentations.
Are you looking for a seasoned communication expert with international experience? An expert who is equally familiar with internal and external communication? Then look no further.
Leading projects of a product, corporate and strategic communications nature, I have worked within the pharmaceutical industry both on the agency and the corporate side within the UK and Germany. Therefore I am at home both in English and in German. Mainly, I have been involved in an international environment participating in and also leading multi-functional, multi-national teams that sometimes – whenever they operated in an alliance – combined members from various top 15 pharmaceutical companies.
As part of the infill team, I coordinate and develop new communication and media concepts supporting two-way-communication and interactive formats.
