Langland – Headline Sponsor
Who we are
Langland, a Publicis Health company, is the only health communications agency that thinks further across Clinical Trial Experience, Medical Strategy & Education, Public Relations & Policy and Advertising, to create unique value with visionary clients.
What we believe
Health brings us together. In the diseases we suffer, the medicines we create, and the causes we champion, health shows us our collective humanity. When we break the barriers that divide us, when we think further, we can create healthier futures, together.
A passion for craft
Having expert thinking is only part of our story. To ensure excellence in everything we make, we have centred our disciplines around three essential crafts: science, strategy and creativity.
Imagine an agency where your programmes are both conceived and delivered through to completion by the same senior team. Where you can be assured you will receive consistent, high-quality, imaginative work from a trusted partner that will create, challenge (where appropriate) and care for your business. Where authenticity, a sense of fun and bringing energy to everything we do is as important to us as delivering on time, on budget and to the highest standards.
That’s what we stand by and that’s why we’re here.
Let us prove it to you. Visit www.67health.co.uk to find out more.
