Ryan Dalton

Which team do you work in?

I am part of the Healthcare Communications team

Which area do you specialise in? 

Medical Communications and Medical Education 

How do you keep up-to-date with the issues in your sector? 

By keeping lively on LinkedIn, reading articles and posts from thought leaders in the sector, as well as keeping on top of articles from BBC Health, PMLive and similar sites. That, and making sure I am talking to candidates and clients all the time and listening to what they say! The best teachers are those who live their industry on a daily basis. 

What's your favourite film and why?

I'd probably have to go with Shawshank, there's no feelgood ending quite like it and I think we all wish Morgan Freeman was around narrating our lives. Either that or the Truman Show, because that's just a great story. Tough to choose! 

If you could invent one thing what would it be?

I'd have to go with some kind of device that makes all my favourite junk foods good for you without affecting the taste! If it wasn't for the fear of losing my teeth I'd eat a terrifying amount of chocolate!

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?

I'm a big history nerd and could talk for hours about a bunch of different subjects - be careful not to get me started!
