The GLOBALHealthPR model uniquely combines the capabilities, power and reach of the big holding company networks with the flexibility, agility, entrepreneurial spirit and creativity of independent agencies to meet the needs of global, regional and local-market clients.
“Spurwing Communications blends global and regional healthcare experience with local insights to advise our clients how to translate the nuances of the sector into compelling stakeholder engagement campaigns and investor relations strategies,” said Spurwing’s Founder and Managing Partner, Thompson. “My team and I are excited to join GLOBALHealthPR as their exclusive partner in Singapore and we look forward to working closely with the other leading agencies that make up this unique network.”
