Kendle’s heritage

Company founder Neil Kendle was a pioneer in opinion leader engagement. In 2003, Neil brought together a small, dedicated team to help clients develop the expert partnerships they need at all points in the product launch cycle. We believe that KOL relationship-building can transform market performance. We invest all our energies in helping our clients to do it well.

about

Kendle Healthcare is dedicated to the two key phases of KOL development: finding the right people, and working with them in the right way. Kendle’s research division conducts identification projects which deliver powerful insights into the clinician landscape in any therapy area, large or small. We take a unique and considered approach to capturing individual experts’ strengths and interests. Our findings are delivered in bespoke formats tailored to the working needs of medical, marketing and sales teams. Our methodology is complex, but our aim is simple: provide peace of mind by ensuring our clients identify the most influential individuals in any therapy area.

Kendle’s engagement team partners with clients to design and implement a KOL programme which gets the best from those individuals. Our strategic consultancy is built on our philosophy of long-term relationship-building. Whatever the engagement activity, we never forget that we are facilitating a partnership which can and should be productive for both sides.

“Kendle Healthcare are a bit different. They take the time to properly get to know and understand KOLs, in order to develop an honest mutually beneficial working relationship. They are also efficient and friendly, taking the pain out of the bureaucracy.”

Professor David Singh, Medical Director, Medicines Evaluation Unit, USHM
