Claire wins Healthcare Communications Leader at Communiqué 2021

by Sarah Nixon . September 2021

We are very proud to announce that Aurora’s CEO Claire Eldridge has been named Communiqué 2021 Healthcare Communications Leader.

We know first-hand what an outstanding leader she is. Not only has Claire supported everyone at Aurora and the other healthcare businesses in the This is Avalon Group throughout the pandemic, but she’s continued to create a successful, growing group of companies during challenging times.

This is how the Judges on the night described her:

“Claire is a true leader, who has shown huge breadth in terms of her professional and personal achievements. After successfully running Aurora for 15 years, Claire has undertaken a restructure of the organisation that was aligned to client needs, truly differentiating the company. Her approach is not only authentic but also passionate – her dedication to her team and business is truly remarkable, making her more than worthy of winning this award.”

And we couldn’t agree more!

The celebrations continue

It was a great night for Aurora at Communiqué 2021, the industry’s first post-pandemic, real life, COVID-friendly awards ceremony, as we were also finalists in:

  • The Excellence in Healthcare Partnerships category for our work with Bristol Myers Squibb. Our team developed a Back-to-Work Guide in partnership with people who have directly experienced, and overcome, the challenges of head and neck cancer. This cancer and its treatment can have life-changing consequences for patients’ appearance and ability to communicate, as well as mental health.
  • Excellence in Patient Programmes for our work with Novartis. The Fighting Failure: Reprioritising Heart Failure Care in the UK campaign created practical resources for the heart failure (HF) community and a spirit to help motivate those dealing with the disease’s challenges to seek improvement.
