Julia Cook
Managing Director
StepBack Healthcare Ltd


I worked with StepBack / Julia for three years, both on general communications issues and on one very large and complex project. Julia's blend of experience and project management skills have helped us tremendously, enabling us to organize our efforts, prioritize activity and keep a track on complex project plans. Her knowledge and experience of communications and the pharmaceutical industry are undoubted, but also blended with great personal skills which get the most out of people and situations.
