EXPERTISE

The health behavior change specialists of Ogilvy

At Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide, a WPP Health & Wellness company, we create inspiring solutions and deliver programs that address our clients’ health challenges.

Our expertise extends across all areas of consumer health and health-related communications – advertising and promotion, brand identity and development, digital marketing, market access, medical education, PR, and strategy and planning – and all platforms of delivery.

We openly collaborate with our clients to gather powerful insights about their brands, their market challenges and how to engage with their customers. Our community then uses these insights to form the strategies, fuel the creative ideas and build the innovative solutions that define the content of the programs that we deliver.

From relationship marketing and data analytics through to sales training and scientific communications, at Ogilvy you’ll find a community that’s dedicated to growing brands and making a difference.

By creating solutions that do more than inform audiences we open people’s minds and change health behavior.

COMMUNICATIONS CAN DO MORE THAN CREATE INTEREST. BY WORKING TOGETHER WE CAN OPEN MINDS TO BETTER HEALTH DECISIONS.

OUR HABITS

The 8 habits guiding all of us
at Ogilvy

In the unique and sometimes challenging arena that is ‘health’, these habits help shape our community and are practised by all of us at Ogilvy. They shape our attitudes, approach to solving client challenges, work and relationships.

  • Courage

     

     

    We know how to have the difficult and delicate conversations around health, and can find the right words for clients, their customers and healthcare professionals.

    In the absence of courage, nothing worthwhile can be accomplished.

  • Idealism

    Raise your sights. Blaze new trails.
    Compete with the immortals.”

    David Ogilvy

    The people who want to improve their health and the health of others, are the ones who do. We recruit them to OCHWW.

  • Curiosity

     

     

    The digital explosion has connected people with their health like never before.

    At Ogilvy we actively seek out and immerse ourselves in new technologies. We embrace their potential and study how people interact with them to identify new ways of helping consumers make informed choices and ultimately, change their health behavior.

  • Playfulness

    We are all born children.
    The trick is to remain one.”

    Pablo Picasso

    You’ll find playfulness in our approach, our ideas and even in the workspaces surrounding us.

    Gamification makes the most of a person’s natural inclination towards fun and competition, and is providing us with new and engaging ways to convey serious health messages more powerfully than ever before.

  • Candor

     

     

    To solve problems and inspire health change we have to be brutally honest, ethical and compliant in all markets around the world.

    We admire people who speak their minds and behave with integrity. At the same time we admire people who listen more than they talk, and make a real effort to understand views that are different from their own.

  • Intuition

     

     

    If we understand, explain and predict the actions of an individual and the relationships between healthcare professional, patients and the public we can achieve the desired outcome.

  • Free-Spiritedness

    Where people aren’t having any fun,
    they seldom produce good work.”

    David Ogilvy

    It is the habit that gives each of us permission to be the best at what we do and when we are ill – even with a minor condition – it is the habit that we miss the most.

  • Persistence

    Never give in. Never give
    in. Never give in. Never.
    Never. Never.”

    David Ogilvy
