2018 Executive Jury Spotlight: Kathy Delaney

“I made a conscious decision to move to health at the start of the new millennium to make a difference. Every day is an opportunity to positively impact lives and even save lives. I’m not Robinson Crusoe in this. With the growing “sex appeal” of our industry, I’m meeting more and more young talented people who also got into it.  It’s important work and there is so much to do. As for what I didn’t fully expect, every day I’m humbled by the power of the human spirit to overcome, challenge, and even laugh at illness. To see what people suffer, how they cope and how they even thrive, and not just survive is sometimes nothing short of miraculous.”

2018 Executive Jury Spotlight: Renata Florio

“What I love most about this area is exactly how challenging [the industry] is. I've won the biggest and most important awards in the world with CPG brands, tech brands, telecom brands, so on and so forth, but winning with Pharma and Wellness feels like knowing how to play any kind of game in any kind of court. I like the sports metaphor because you have to be good to play some sport and yet you have to follow the rules. There's no goal made with hands in soccer. You have to be able to kick the ball with your feet (yes, I'm Brazilian and Italian and we love soccer); same thing for Pharma and Wellness, in order to score you have to be good at the game, really good.”
