Introducing the GHP Global Excellence Awards

Launched in 2020, the Global Excellence Awards provide us at Global Health & Pharma Magazine with an opportunity to celebrate and highlight the innovative companies, teams and individuals who are excelling across the vast landscape encompassing healthcare, life science and pharmaceutical sectors.

Our recipients are hand selected by our very own in-house research team over several months. We search diligently to find those setting the highest standards, making pioneering breakthroughs and creating the most cutting-edge medical solutions; from Health & Pharma Tech innovators to care service providers and everything in between, we seek to showcase outstanding medical, health and pharmaceutical business leaders and companies from across the globe.

There are no prerequisites when it comes to turnover, company size, age, or geographical location. It is more important for us to identify recipients based on merit, innovation, and discovery. We form our decisions via an internal process of analysis, shortlisting, and selection.

Those who go on to be successful in the programme will be provided with several options, which are specifically designed to boost either their organisational, or personal profile, after all, it’s no use winning an award if you don’t tell anyone!

Our marketing packages have been expertly created to maximise exposure and the promotion of the award. The primary route for the exposure is to feature our winners within an edition of our quarterly digital publication, offering vital publicity and a trusted source and location to link back to when you’re sharing the news within your own network.

We also offer listings in our A-Z directory and inclusion in our stand-alone winner’s supplement, published annually, again both excellent tools for linking and sharing.

We pride ourselves that regardless of budget, our awards provide our winners with a unique opportunity to promote their organisations both within our network and theirs, to increase the size of their online footprint and to stand out in a competitive marketplace.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Brand Coordinator for further details.

Nomination Criteria
The Global Health & Pharma team work diligently to identify the most relevant and deserving professionals for inclusion in the programme. We keep abreast of trends by monitoring prominent and trusted healthcare & pharmaceutical news sources, funding and investment rounds, key industry events, and movers and shakers. Conducting a full and thorough review of these steps allows us to formalise our nominees and pass them over to the next stage, Research.
Researching Nominees & Confirming Winners
Our in-house research team take each nominee and assesses them independently. We examine each candidate against a full suite of publicly available sources including news articles, journals, corporate websites, members associations, professional directories, press releases and other published work.

The criteria our team considers includes industry experience, other prestigious and meaningful accolades and recognition, their physical and digital presence, client and investor reviews and testimonials, products and services and corporate progression.

Once our recipients are agreed, our Brand Coordinator will contact them each individually with the good news and discuss their inclusion and next steps.
Contacting winners
The recipients of our GHP Global Excellence Awards are personally notified about their success prior to any public announcement. This time is important to allow for wider corporate communications and the coordination of marketing strategies.

The winners must “accept” the award before anything is published and depending on the level of coverage they agree, this will be formalised via our quarterly digital publication, the annual awards supplement, or the A-Z directory.
There are no mandatory costs associated with accepting the award; each recipient is invited to feature in our A-Z directory on a complimentary basis. We encourage our winners to spread the good news across their own website and social media channels to capitalise on the success.

We also offer several commercial options for winners who seek to maximise the potential of the award via additional exposure. These packages offer varying levels of coverage across our platform and include expertly produced promotional materials designed to amplify the coverage.


Where did the nomination come from?+
The GHP Global Excellence Awards are managed entirely in house, meaning that all nominees have been put forward by us, the publisher. For specific detail on any case, please email the Brand Coordinator who sent the notification.
Why was I, or my company selected?+
We use a range of trusted sources to guide our selection process, typically including industry news sources and publications, funding/investment rounds, key industry events, members associations, professional directories, and press releases.
Who makes the final decision?+
We employ an impartial team of individuals to conduct all research. At the helm of the panel, is a veteran academic leader with international academic and training experience and is well versed in research, fact-checking, and mediation. We believe this method is the most efficient in determining which companies and individuals are the most deserving of inclusion in the programme and has brought us much success and commendation throughout its use.
Is there a winner’s ceremony/award dinner?+
As we are predominantly digital, we don’t focus our efforts on a celebratory event but instead provide the option of coverage in both our quarterly magazine and the annual winner’s supplement.

We understand that it may be logistically difficult for all our recipients to attend such events, so we instead provide cost-effective methods of promotion across our international platform. We follow the belief that the optional costs associated with an award are better placed in a year’s worth of online marketing for each recipient rather than spending large amounts on one ceremonial evening.
Are there any costs involved?+
There are no mandatory costs involved. We do offer a range of paid additional benefits should our winners wish to capitalise on their inclusion, but these are entirely optional.

Proudly not pay-to-play, all our winners are offered a free of charge listing in both the digital magazine and the annual winner’s directory. Our company policy will always remain that, regardless of budget, each of our clients should always be able to garner the full value of the award and our seal of approval.

We also offer a variety of promotional opportunities to our winners, as we have an extensive network and we know, more than anyone, the wider business benefits from promoting industry awards.
