About Us

The Origins Story

Origins brings years of experience in delivering award winning patient focused insights, working closely with clients including Pharma and Biotech organisations on how to involve, understand and engage with patients across the entire product lifecycle. Our clients now want us by their side from early stage market assessments, throughout clinical development and lifecycle management, to improve their patient focus and in doing so increase the value of their products.

This isn’t just coincidence. Medical regulators and health technology assessors globally are placing critical significance on patient experience data and real-world evidence. Origins evolved to meet this need. We are the Patient Focused Specialists.

Our Beliefs and Values

We believe that those living with a condition are the ultimate opinion leaders of that condition. Our drive is to bring the patient voice front of mind, so that companies can develop and market products that offer genuine benefits to help people live better lives. In doing so our clients increase the value of their products and services. Our values are our DNA. They are central to everything we do – from how we hire and reward, to how we think and collaborate. Our values enable us to focus, challenge and achieve more.

Our Team

Our team are experts in patient strategy, insights, data, and creating inspiring patient-orientated solutions.

Mark Corbett

Chief Innovation Officer

I lead innovation within the Resonant Group, to add new service offerings and capabilities that will add value to our pharmaceutical and biotech clients. Over 25 years’ pharmaceutical industry experience, initially within pharma, and over the last 15 years specialising in building companies to provide outsourced services to the pharma and biotech industry.

I am inspired to be able to contribute to ensuring the patient voice is front of mind, and am passionate about working with patients to deliver high quality outputs for our clients.

Su Smith

Director

I work with our clients to understand what they are trying to achieve and design strategies and programmes that ensure their success. I am a passionate advocate internally and externally for the value of the patient voice.

Apart from the amazing team, I get joy from helping our clients understand how they can improve other people’s lives by listening and engaging. My favourite thing to hear from a client is “wow, I never knew that, that is so powerful”.

As the second longest serving member of staff within the group I am the go-to for historical information about the last ten years! I am the Resonant Group Wikipedia!

Sheetal Padania

Head of Research

I’m responsible for designing insights projects based on our clients’ strategy and objectives. I lead the team to ensure all projects hit deadlines and meet our clients’ needs. I have been working in healthcare market research for over 15 years, and still love ensuring the patient voice is heard.

I love that my job at Origins involves interviewing patients and caregivers; hearing their stories, and making (even a small) difference to their lives. At times we dig deep and cover some very sensitive topics, and at other times we go broad and survey populations of patients. Every time it feels like a privilege to be able to listen to the views of patients and caregivers.

I am a qualified mental health first aider, supporting colleagues across the Group who may need help or support. I am also a member of the Resonant Inclusion Council, assisting the company to be a diverse and inclusive place of work. Our mission is to sustain an environment where anyone from any background can do the best work of their lives.

Stacey East

Insights Manager

I work with clients and our team to ensure that all projects are delivered to the highest quality standards, within budget and timelines, whilst striving to exceed client expectations. I have a background in pharma marketing and medical communications, so have experienced the industry from many perspectives!

The attitude and vision of our team are inspiring. Everyone, and every initiative has patients at the heart of it, I love working with clients to ensure what they do is patient focused.

I’m a first aider, which are skills I dearly hope never to have to put into action. I have also recently joined the Resonant Social Committee, and am looking forward to helping to run events to bring the wider teams together (we’re a great bunch!)
