About Anna Dé

I am Anna Dé - a Global / European Public Affairs professional, with 20 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.



“At the heart of my approach is working in close partnership with my clients to deliver the best outcomes.”

I have come back to running my own consultancy, after a brief period at Burson Cohn & Wolfe (BCW) as Head of Healthcare Policy Communications. 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.


Initiated by Anna Dé to talk with the movers and shakers on Global and European health policy matters.
