Putting a little swagger in our step at the Publicis Health all-agency meeting

When Publicis Health has an all-agency meeting, they do it in style. The Resolute team descended en masse on Chelsea Harbour last week, along with our lovely colleagues from Publicis Life Brands, Real Science, Langland, Digitas Health and Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness UK.

Why were we meeting up? Well, not just for the view and the fancy biscuits! We were there to hear all about the wider company vision, from our CEO himself, and to find out what good GREAT looks like within Publicis Health, and in the wider Healthcare industry as a whole. With inspirational speakers from all over the network, there was no shortage of fantastic insight, witty anecdotes and great soundbites to take away…and plenty of wine and canapés to enjoy once the day was over!

Here are a few of our favourite quotes from the meeting:

  1. “Great communications includes encouraging the crazies and adding some swagger to the work we do.” – Kipp Cheng, Chief Communications Officer, Publicis Health, @kippcheng
  1. “We all need to have purpose, a value, and meaning in our life.” – Nick Colucci, CEO of Publicis Health

  1. “Look for new talent in unusual places. Stop fishing in the same pond.” – Nick Colucci, CEO of Publicis Health
  1. “It’s full of remarkable people with great strength and character. The number of people who have been with the company for over 10 years, or returned after brief experiences elsewhere, is a testament to the opportunities and stimulus that the company offers.” – Glen Halliwell, Medical Education Business Unit Director, Publicis Resolute, @glenh10, on returning to Resolute after 7 years
  1. “We need to be a diverse company so that we reflect the world that our customers and their customers live in.” – Nick Colucci, CEO of Publicis Health
  1. “The healthcare of tomorrow will mean telehealth and AI. Innovation is key.” – Brendan Gallagher, EVP, Connected Health Innovations, Digitas Health LifeBrands, @unclebrendan
  1. “We can’t always show off the work that we do, but we know when we’ve made a difference because it feels f***ing great!” – Eduard Llena Portell, Executive Creative Director, Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness UK, @eduardllena
  1. “You need to put yourself out there, try new things and embrace failing. This spirit allows us to get creative and sets us apart from the rest of the pack.” – Ann Hughes, PR Business Unit Director, Publicis Resolute, @AnnieB1180, on what her acting background has taught her

Last but by no means least…

  1. “We need to put the pub into Publicis!” – Katie McMorran, Business Unit Director, Publicis LifeBrands

And on that note, seeing as it’s a mandate from our fearless leaders, we’re off for a quick team drink!
