“It was a great way to train multiple functions within our business and talk about specific areas which were pertinent to our particular products and projects’’ – Director of Regulatory Affairs, Pfizer Consumer Healthcare UK

“I found the Medicines advertising workshop very useful, particularly to understand how the rules are interpreted, with lots of practical examples. This one day session was interactive and gave me the right level of information about OTC medicines advertising and packaging.” – Annae Liu, Bayer

“The PAGB’s advertising code sessions always prompt fresh thinking about the brands we work on, particularly through the use of current case studies and updates on legislation. Even if you’re convinced you know it all and have worked in the industry for years, you will come away from these meetings thinking differently about your brands and seeing new opportunities.” – Actavis
