"When these types of award were introduced three years ago, we felt the categories really reflected important needs in our industry and were very keen to support and extend this initiative. What we do is, or should be, all about making an impact ie changing/influencing decisions, bringing the right improved healthcare intervention to patients, in the right way. We were therefore delighted to sponsor the business impact through innovation category, and award it this year to our colleagues in Hall and Partners and Takeda.” Stuart Cooper CEO Adelphi Group Worldwide
