Syneos Health

US-CA, Editorial Manager 2874953-MZ



"Do you speak people?"It's a language many healthcare companies have forgotten - a simple clear way to communicate great ideas that breakthrough because everyone can understand it. No Jargon. No lingo. No catchphrase of the day. We are GSW and speaking people is at the core of everything we do. We are a healthcare advertising agency that thinks just a bit differently, works just a bit closer and dives just a bit deeper. And because we talk to each other like people, instead of a corporate machine, we come up with great ideas that talk to clients and customers on the most effective level of all - the human level. Speaking people isn't easy. But if you can do it, we need to talk.
