The Anthill Academy™
Anthill Agency, a leading life sciences digital agency, today announced the launch of the Anthill Academy™ and partnership with Actando’s PharmAcademy.
The Anthill Academy™ distils 17 years of expertise delivering digital consulting, production and implementation for the pharmaceutical industry into a comprehensive, online academy. It was born out of a recognised need in the pharmaceutical industry for upskilling and increased enthusiasm around the opportunity surrounding digital.Katrine Bach, CEO, Anthill Agency:
“Pharma needs to accelerate its digital adoption and while we can learn a lot from outside industry, pharma is unique. We know that the industry requires contextualised training which led us to reflect on our own role in bringing the industry up-to-speed with digital. For our clients to succeed, we need to help them grow their in-house capabilities. Therefore, we decided to share our own methodologies on digital strategies and solutions. In that way, we extend our engagement with our clients. Being not just as a digital provider but a true digital partner.”
The academy begins with the fundamental principles of digital marketing and gives users a robust and aligned understanding of digital marketing and the key principles that drive its success. With this understanding in place, the advanced modules give users the tools and methodologies they need in order to deliver superior customer experiences and achieve digital excellence. Expert users are then offered an array of modules that talk to the most cutting-edge topics, theories and practices surrounding digital marketing today and in the near-future.
Partnership with Actando
