Margaret Zabel, CEO of The Communications Council, emphasised the importance of the Bravo! platform for the celebration of Global Award winners as a source of inspiration and motivation to healthcare agencies.

Says Zabel: "The Bravo! Awards are an occasion to recognise and reflect on the great creative work of that year. The winning entries successfully navigated strong regulatory demands coupled with the need for clear health messaging, and did so in a clever, and creative way. They set the bar for our agencies."

The awards are sponsored by Gold Sponsor Medical Observor, Silver Sponsor SMC People, Bronze Sponsors MMW& Medical Media, and supported by Stellar, IDS and Group Momentum. Bravo! and thank you to all our sponsors.
