Life is a creative communications agency that uses the optimum mix of channels to bring out the best in every brand.
We use our creative abilities to persuade healthcare professionals and patients to make informed decisions that will enhance their health. That means combining logic (sound strategic thinking) with magic (great ideas that engage emotions).
In every job we seek a hidden truth that will change customers’ beliefs and ultimately their behavior.
We take our work seriously but not ourselves. We have fun, because we spend all day in a pub thinking up ideas. (Our office is a converted pub, complete with bar and resident ghost.)
We demand a lot of ourselves, so our customers can expect the very best from us.
Juliet La Marque
Chief Executive Officer
Ever since Juliet can remember, her father told her, “There is no such word as can’t” and “Never come to me with a problem, always a solution,” and that is the way she has lived her life. These wise words outlived her father but she passes them on to the team at Life to ensure that they always have a “can do” attitude and never give up on any challenge that comes their way.
After graduating with a first class honors degree in cardiovascular pharmacology and physiology, Juliet worked her way up through the ranks of healthcare sales, marketing, and advertising. In 2000, she founded and became co-owner of Life.
In her spare moments, Juliet loves the bright lights of London—the plays, the musicals, the ballet, the opera, the comedy, and the live concerts.
A book that changed my life: Spike Milligan’s Silly Verse for Kids. A reminder to never take things in Life too seriously!
Chief Creative Officer
Reg has spent over 30 years in the pharmaceutical industry, on both the client and agency sides, working on world-leading brands and award-winning campaigns.
Along with Juliet La Marque, Reg started Life to prove that the traditional way of running a healthcare communications company could be radically improved. Reg is dissatisfied with the current state of healthcare advertising, where so many ideas are mundane and generic. His goal in life is to find a cure for the common ad.
In his spare time, Reg enjoys running, sailing, and especially skiing. Even when going downhill, he wants to keep improving.
A book that changed my life: The Act of Creation by Arthur Koestler. It persuaded me it’s okay to pursue a career combining art and science because they have a common ancestor.

A book that changed my life: Monsoon Rains and Icicle Drops by Libby Southwell. A book of strength, determination, and inspiration. And proof that there is life after tragedy and heartache. Also proof that there’s a big, wide, and wonderful world out there to explore—travel is therapy.
