Clients – Past and present



Timo Tiivola, Senior Vice President, Nycomed

“Julian was well regarded in Nycomed having supported the organisation as a consultant with a number of projects such as running programmes in the Nycomed Academy and developing global brand strategies.  In 2006 when I needed an Interim Managing Director of Nycomed UK, I approached Julian confident he could do a good job.

With the purchase of Altana in 2007, Nycomed selected Julian as MD for the new combined UK organisation with the challenge first to integrate the businesses and then restructure it with the approaching loss of patent of the major product, Protium.  Julian consistently performed well, providing effective leadership and living the company values, keeping motivation high in spite of restructuring, developing innovative solutions to the business challenges and importantly, delivering on results”

Melissa Thomas, Managing Director, Nycomed UK Ltd.

“With the out-licensing of a key brand, we needed to develop a new company strategy based around the remaining portfolio and pipeline.  Julian from Bloom Health took our new management team through some insightful processes and different approaches over two workshops that really helped us understand the assets we had and also the capabilities required to access them so that our new company strategy could be formed.  The style, the external challenge provided plus the programme developed were just what our team needed and produced an excellent result”


“Having heard how Bloom Health helps build effective brand visions, we asked Julian in to help us develop the Company Vision for Achiive – our learning and development company.  The outcome was excellent.  Over two half day sessions, Julian took our team through some processes and thinking approaches which really opened our minds to the challenges we were facing and insight into how to address them, the value our offerings could deliver to our customers and how to differentiate ourselves.  We left the sessions with great clarity not only on our vision for the business but how we were going to achieve it.  We would certainly recommend Bloom Health to other businesses wanting to improve direction, focus and communication”

Bruce Gilligan, Director, Oncology Ltd.

“Having been in Pharmaceutical marketing for a number of years, I was always quite proud that one of the first things I did 3 years ago when I decided to go freelance, was to write a 5 year plan for my business. However, the subsequent years have flown by and the understandable desire to keep getting work has meant on many occasions I’ve taken work just because it was there and have sometimes found myself doing things I wasn’t expecting.”

“Spending the day with Julian afforded me a long overdue opportunity to reflect on mine and my business’ aspirations, achievements to date and where I want to be in the mid to long term.”

“His methodical and logical approach in guiding you to develop a positioning strategy and prioritise your business objectives is extremely effective. I now feel more motivated towards running my business and have a much clearer idea of where I should be focussing my efforts and developing future opportunities”

“I would recommend anyone working in the sometimes isolated world of freelance, to consider spending a day with Julian, developing their business strategy”
