    MedComms Networking - 07 March 2017


    The series of Lunch and Learns with Concise this month started really well last week, in Oxford. My thanks to everyone who joined in with the very interesting, and open, discussions about the use of technology to optimise audience engagement at industry events. We certainly got some good insights in to various approaches that can be taken. If you want to be part of those discussions you can join us in New York on 16 March (we've just changed the venue to cope with what looks like being a bigger than expected group) and in Macclesfield on 21 March, but also in San Francisco on 21 March - we're working out how I can be teleported in! Seriously, though, San Francisco will be the interesting challenge in terms of gathering an audience, so if you know anyone out there please encourage them to join in.

    It'll be great if we can kick-start more MedComms Networking type activities in other places outside the UK.

    On that note, the full programme is now available for next week's MedComms meeting in Berlin, supported by Stgilesmedical. Again, please spread the word and let's keep the momentum going out there.

    Importantly, last week we had another Brunch Club meeting and filmed four more excellent webcasts, all of which are now freely available to everyone everywhere:

  • Use of social media (and digital features) to maximise the impact of your research featuring Caroline Halford
  • The ABPI Code of Practice - what it is and should it be on your radar? featuring Jayne Packham
  • The ABPI Code of Practice - common pitfalls for medical writers featuring Jayne Packham
  • Writing for patients and the public - top tips for medical writers featuring Jayne Packham

  • Take a look at the full collection of webcasts at - it's growing nicely. Feel free to use them at your leisure.

    There's a lot going on at the moment. You'll find details of all events in this weekly newsletter below, or at anytime on the web page at or try our MedComms App, which includes a calendar of events and much more.

    Last month's MedComms Barometer survey, like last year's, was frustratingly light on responses from outside the UK. We reached 318 responses, though, which wasn't bad, and the data is now freely available and provides for interesting browsing. The data from both the 2016 and now the 2017 surveys are freely accessible at our Surveys page and you'll see I have again specifically filtered out the data from agencies and freelancers. I'd urge caution in comparing the data between the surveys we have so far, but hopefully it'll be interesting to be comparing in a few years' time, if we can keep up the annual exercise. Meanwhile we have 95 percent of respondents saying they recommend MedComms as a worthwhile career option, so we seem to be a generally contented community. Do please share any thoughts you have about the data in our Linkedin discussion.

    Enjoy your week. Stay busy...
