    MedComms Networking - 10 September 2019


    It's feeling a tad chilly here in Manchester, where I've now arrived for this afternoon's MedComms careers event. One can never be sure of anything these days, but we're expecting a crowd of at least 100 of us. Kudos to all the agencies who are joining us.

    If you know anyone who wants to learn more about working in MedComms, please point them at for lots of insights, careers guides, videos and details of future events.

    Our next event for the wannabes is another of our unique workshops, in London on 10 October, Writing skills for medical writers: what MedComms agencies expect. It had quickly sold out again, but we've had a couple of cancellations. So we've space if you know anyone who'd like to join us.

    In a similar vein, Stgilesmedical have announced they're running another of their regular training courses for new writers in Berlin on 27 November, Medical and Scientific Writing.

    Remember it's Stgilesmedical who are hosting our end of year MedComms Networking event on 10 December, Involving patients in research and medical writing. We've an interesting programme coming together quickly now.

    Importantly, our Autumn series of free, weekly, MedComms webinars are also coming together quickly now. Details will always be kept bang up-to-date at where you'll see we've confirmed that on 27 November, Jenny Plant (Owner, Account Management Skills) will talk about The benefits of having a client development strategy. Whilst on 4 December we'll Meet the Publishers again, to talk about current developments and future trends in publishing. On our panel we'll have Hamish McDougall (Business Development Manager at SAGE Publishing), Jan Seal-Roberts (Publishing Director at Adis) and Joanne Walker (Head of Publishing Solutions, Future Science Group).

    It may look like I'm working backwards, but looks can be deceiving!

    We'll kick off the series on 2 October with Ffyona Dawber (CEO and Founder at Synergy Vision) and a couple of her colleagues talking about The 4 day MedComms working week in practice. As you'll have seen from all the headlines already this year, they've introduced an industry-leading 4 day working week for everyone in their agency. What are the challenges and the practical lessons they have learned which ensure they continue to deliver the best possible service to their clients? How have the agency staff benefited? With several months now of experience behind them, will the experiment continue? Questions from the audience will be welcomed. It should be of interest to anyone working in and around MedComms and wanting to challenge conventional working practices. Everyone welcome.

    And yes, I've invited the authors to join us for a webinar. If you've any ideas for topics or speakers, let me know.
