John Pugh of Boehringer Ingelheim talks about driving innovation in his large organization with the new game Syrum.

John Pugh is the Director of Digital for Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH – a group of pharmaceutical companies that specialize in research and development for prescription medicine products. He spoke to PSFK recently about driving innovation in a large organization with his forthcoming game Syrum – which he will launch at PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON on September 13.

Your company has a new game, Syrum. What is it – and why is a pharmaceutical company like Boehringer Ingelheim involved in it?

What really sparked my interest in the potential of gaming is that a lot of what we do in pharma is around educating and teaching people; whether that's teaching doctors about specific products, educating the general public and patients about diseases and healthy ways to live, or teaching people how to take their medication.
