Having had Parkinson’s for 43 years and become an expert in my own condition. My passion is raising awareness of patient sentiment and encouraging meaningful dialogue between pharma, HCP’s and patients themselves so outcomes benefit everyone .
I encourage honesty in communication and I am an avid user of social media with thousands of followers on Twitter. I have been a key note speaker at Wired Health 2017 , FT Health Summit Europe , a panellist at Mindshare Huddle 2017, Founders Forum 2017 , 2018 , CogX 2018 . I have also spoken at the Digital World Health Summit 2017 , British Neuroscience Association Winter Symposium 2017 and Medtronic’s European Holiday Programme event in Switzerland 2017 .
I offer new refreshing insights from a patient perspective as I have no previous background in healthcare after spending 25 years working for several trade publishing companies producing in-house advertising funded publication in a variety of sectors.
