    MedComms Networking - 01 May 2018


    First, many thanks to inScience Communications for hosting last week's MedComms Networking event in Knutsford, where we talked about current pitfalls and opportunities in medical communications. John Gonzalez and Nirpal Virdee did great jobs leading their respective sessions and their slides are now freely accessible.

    Now, though, it's time to get serious about our annual #MedComms Day. This year, as you hopefully already know, we'll celebrate a Day in the Life of #MedComms on 6 June. Once again we've some support from Concise to help us make it even bigger, better and bolder!

    Today I've launched our MedComms Thunderclap. As before, we only need a minimum 100 supporters to hear the thunder on #MedComms Day. It sounds easy but isn't! So, all support is much appreciated. If you've not seen it before, just join in via Twitter or Facebook and on 6 June, at midday UK time, our standard message automatically goes out across social media via everyone who participated. You can add your own twist to the message but I can't change it. So you'll know exactly what's going out. So, a minimum 100 supporters enables the message to launch. Then that standard message gets hugely amplified.

    Please use your Linkedin and Twitter accounts and more to support #MedComms Day as much as possible; before, during and afterwards. There are no rules, we just want to make as much noise as possible!

    The day has worked tremendously well the last six years to engage ever-increasing numbers of folks working in and around MedComms all around the world. We start with stories coming in as the sun rises in New Zealand and we finish as the sun sets in San Francisco or thereabouts.

    All I ask for is contributions that give insights in to your working day in MedComms, for instance some text and a photo, and then I wait and see what arrives. We'll get all sorts in the end.

    I then add those contributions as sensibly as possible throughout the day to the web site at where you can currently browse the archive from the past six previous years.

    But this is only the tip of the iceberg. Much of what happens is well beyond my control - or even my sight.

    It's impossible to know what exactly is going on across the world but it's been obvious the last couple of years that increasing numbers of people and organisations have simply used #MedComms Day then as an excuse to do their own thing, which has been evident in the Twitter stream where we use the hashtag #medcomms and where activity has exploded on MedComms Day. Agencies have organised local charitable days, team building exercises and lots of cakes and much more.

    It'll be interesting to see what everyone does this year. Thanks for your support. All ideas are welcomed.

    Oh, and if you're attending ISMPP's or EMWA's events this week be sure to share the news via #ISMPP14AM and #EMWA46 on Twitter!

    Have a great week.
