- Prof. Werner Mohl MD, PhD; heart surgeon
“In the medical sector and particularly in the startup period of an innovative medical product you have to rely on professional communication and medial support. Innovation most of the time means that other parties did not come across this innovative approach yet. The best way of presenting this knowledge and the core message of the innovation needs extensive empathy and understanding for the specific matter, the scientific and professional interconnections and the requirements of the target group. We found those qualities at its best in our collaboration with the specialized agency IHOFMANN.”
