“MSD UK is a fantastically well run organisation – professional, strategic and just nice people. The three things we like about it are – excellent events (Meet the Buyer etc;), Great Networking Opportunities, Exposure to Senior Client Side contacts. The Awards Event every 2 years is fairly exceptional as well.”

“The general involvement with MSDUK has helped us evolve as a business. By engaging with Corporate professionals this has helped us to be more professional. I have completed the Goldman Sachs 10ksb programme and am now being mentored by Accenture. Also, as the winners of the 2010 Award for Innovation we have carried this forward in our business as 3rd party verification that we are Nationally recognised for our Innovations.”
