Testimonials

The Pharma Industry Awards offers an unmissable opportunity to have your work reviewed by leading industry experts; to get recognition from your peers; benchmark against your competitors; and attract new clients, customers and top talent to your organisation. But don't just take our word for it; read some of the thoughts of our past entrants, sponsors and judges below.

“It’s very pleasing to get an award like this because I’ve worked in the industry for a long time and I would normally shy away from this type of stuff because I prefer to be to the side rather than the centre. I’m very optimistic about the future more than I’ve ever been in my 28 years, I think we are in a golden year of the industry in Ireland and with huge potential, huge opportunities for people so it’s a very positive time.”

Paul Duffy - Pfizer
Pharma Leader 2018

 

 

“BioPharmaChem Ireland has been a founding Partner or Patron of these awards and since they’ve started each year we think they’ve got better, they’ve grown, more companies have got involved and what I think is also very reassuring for us is that the interest from our members has been sustained and we’re more than happy to remain involved.”

Matt Moran – Awards Judging Co-ordinator & Director, BioPharmaChem Ireland

 

“At Kuehne + Nagel we very much are heavily involved in the logistics of transport of pharmaceutical and healthcare in Ireland. As a global leader, our new state of the art pharmaceutical facility at Dublin airport is an investment we’ve made to support the growing pharma and MedTech industry within Ireland and that’s a story we’re going to share here tonight.”

“We were absolutely thrilled for the whole team and everyone who is at home in Pfizer Little Island. It’s the first time we won an award of this nature (Sustainability Initiative of the Year 2017) and it’s a great recognition for the hard work and the projects that people have rolled out over the last number of years.”

“Winning an award like this for MSD it’s a proof point, it’s not just for staff on site, it’s for our graduates that come in. It shows that we have a programme that’s been peer reviewed. The award signifies that we’re doing something right.”

Kieran Ryan - MSD Ballydine

Laoise O’Muchu - Amgen Technology Ireland
Corporate Social Responsibility Programme of the Year 2018

“We have amazing people in the company and I always say a company is as good as the people that work in it and those two awards are for the people because it’s they that won it, not me, because I just happen to be the driver and it’s the people that make the company tick.”

Michael Burke - Chanelle Pharma
Pharma Industry Company of the Year 2018 & Pharma Company of the Year – Large 2018

“As a judge I’ve seen a huge variety of really strong applications - very hard to differentiate one from the other, very hard to pick a winner. Showing how people are really applying their ingenuity to do things in a new and better way. Wonderful to see, long may it last.”

“One of the key things for the PDA is connecting as many companies within the pharma and biotech industries in Ireland as possible and networking with them and this evening really gives us that visibility to connect with our members. We’re very much trying to grow our organisation and promote the organisation as that interface between different companies.”
