    • Global and national policy dialogues
    • Recognized thought-leadership
  • Amplified reputation


Leadership in Health: Our Approach

What we’re seeing:


  • Leadership and reputation are reinforcing concepts. Leadership in health leads to enhanced reputation.
  • Leaders in health are companies that meaningfully advance the health and wellbeing of people around the world. They earn the trust and confidence of their stakeholders by delivering results that have business and societal value.
  • Healthcare companies that develop and maintain their positions as leaders in global health realize a range of benefits that enable them to differentiate themselves in the marketplace and, over time, develop a competitive advantage. These include:
    • Improved sales
    • Smoother market entry
    • Attract potential partners
    • Stock performance / valuation
    • Attract / retain the best talent
    • Stakeholder relationships
    • Improved reputation
