I am Anna Dé - a Global / European Public Affairs professional, with 24 years’ international consultancy experience.
I am specialised in International Healthcare Public Affairs: supporting clients with multinational policy-led healthcare communications and strategies, and how to best engage on healthcare policy matters at international, EU and national levels.
In my years working in both London and Brussels, I have supported leading healthcare companies, patient groups, healthcare professional societies, regulatory bodies, trade associations, as well as global health organisations. I have experience of working on policy communications in many different disease areas.
I came back to running my own consultancy, after a brief period at Burson Cohn & Wolfe (BCW) as Head of Healthcare Policy Communications, in 2019. Before establishing my own consultancy, I worked as Head of International Business Development at Incisive Health, I was an Associate Managing Partner at Ogilvy Healthworld, based in London, and I worked as a Director for Acumen Public Affairs, a Brussels based communications consultancy, and I was Head of the EU Healthcare Public Affairs Practice at Hill & Knowlton Brussels. In this role, I oversaw a team of 15 consultants and a portfolio of 20 clients (both private and public sector). I was instrumental in growing the practice to the largest policy practice in the Brussels office.
I am a graduate of the London School of Economics and Political Science, with a BSc (Econ) in International Relations and an MSc in European Studies (graduating with a Distinction). I have studied French at the Institut français du Royaume-Uni.
Prior to my consultancy career, I worked at Descamps, the Delegation of the European Union to the United States, the United Nations and Arthritis Care.
