Qi Pan is a Global Programmatic Manager on the Future Leaders Programme at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), a world-leading healthcare company.

Born in China, Qi started her career at GSK on the Future Leaders Programme as the GDPR expert for Consumer Healthcare Tech, successfully rolling out compliant technologies to the GSK Consumer Healthcare sales teams across Europe in 2018. Following this she led a review of programmatic vendors, delivering a whitepaper on the final recommendation to senior leadership. She currently works within the Global Digital Media Strategy team, where she is the product owner for the innovative digital marketing technology TRGR. This utilises real-time data signals based on location to inform the ways in which brands buy media globally. Her ambition is to scale the product further within GSK markets whilst continually evolving the product to reach even more consumers in need. Qi also leads the implementation of GSK’s global brand safety strategy, defining the guidelines, tools and measurement.

She co-founded a series of thought leadership debates in GSK offices around the world, where external experts are invited to bring the benefit of their experience and inspire colleagues with transformative ways to benefit both consumers and patients. She also ran an internal ‘Dragons’ Den’, taking in ideas to solve significant business problems from colleagues all around the world, with the winners bringing their ideas to life with funding from sponsors of the programme. A “Let’s talk” champion, she gathered candid employee feedback around culture from a team of over 300 colleagues and presented the key themes to the CEO of GSK.

A staunch advocate of women in STEM, she has mentored students, organised an outreach day for Oxford Women in Computer Science and written an article for Spectra imparting her advice for overcoming imposter syndrome. In 2018, Qi published a chapter entitled ‘Privacy in the New Age of IoT’ in the Springer-published book Women Securing the Future with TIPPSS for IoT, alongside other eminent women around the world.

Qi Pan studied Biochemistry at the University of Oxford. For her research into the role of epigenetics in X chromosome inactivation, she was featured as a contributing author in Nature Communications.
