Paul Simms

Patient Leader

In 2003, Paul started working in pharma. He quickly became aware of the industry's potential to do better by creating patient value instead of just selling medicines. Paul devised the annual 'Patient Summit Europe', first held Feb 2004, and the US equivalent a few months later. These events and the surrounding narrative initiated pharma's patient-centricity movement, impacting millions worldwide. 15 yrs later, Paul has now launched the 'im-patient' conference where patients are now the designers/creators/hosts! Today, Paul is working on the next big thing: 'The Barcelona Treaty' where the whole industry commits to more ambitious patient goals to 2040. Watch this space...
