Leon Beswick, Managing Director

Leon has over 15 years experience implementing successful health communication campaigns for major pharmaceutical and biotech companies, as well as professional associations and health technology organisations.

His experience extends to the most significant and successful reimbursement campaigns over the last 15 years.

Before starting Ogilvy PR Health, Leon was a Director at the public affairs agency, Parker & Partners, where he developed a strong understanding of the role and influence government has in healthcare.
Leon has a strong background in and deep understanding of the Australian reimbursement processes that many public relations campaigns seek to influence.

Importantly Leon’s insights into Government come from a background in politics when he worked as a policy adviser in the office of then Minister for Health and Aged Care, the Hon Dr Michael Wooldridge and as a health policy adviser with then Victorian Premier, the Hon Jeff Kennett.

Leon is a Director with the Australian Institute of Policy & Science.
