    MedComms Networking - 10 October 2017


    First a big shout out, please, for the team at Paramount Recruitment. They're the latest to join our group of specialist Recruiters who've added their support to what we do for the global MedComms Community. Talk about recruitment, and specifically Recruiters, tends to be a sensitive topic amongst MedComms specialists but the guys we have supporting us are all specialists and play a vital role in the development of our community. I'm certainly grateful for their support, which - along with that from the corporate sponsors - enables all this to happen. I'd like to think that when the time comes and you need support from a recruitment specialist then you'll check in with this group first.

    Meanwhile, we had another Brunch meeting, last week. I'm always surprised more of you don't turn up to enjoy the talks first-hand and to chat with the speakers and, frankly, to get a free lunch off us, but hey ho. The talks were excellent again and, most importantly, were all filmed for our collection of free webcasts. The first of the new webcasts has just been posted at today and the other two (from John Dixon and from Jan Seal-Roberts) will be available shortly. Thanks as always to Concise for supporting this activity.

    The first of this month's webcasts features Tim Mustill, Principal at Astrocyte Consulting, outlining the challenges of gene and cell therapy development and clinical use - and how medcomms professionals may be able to help. It's a little longer than the usual 15-20 minutes but well worth setting aside time for. These webcasts are free to view by everyone, everywhere in the world and, once again, I'd encourage you to use it as the basis for your own team meeting.

    Talking of running your own team meetings and exploiting what we're doing for your own purposes - more than 250 individuals have signed up to join us on 18 October at 13.00 BST for our 2nd MedComms Virtual event, supported as before by Blue Sky eLearn. This time an expert panel will discuss scientific meetings in the digital age and overcoming their challenges, based on new survey data from EPG Communications Group. By the way, you can download their full report here. I'm hoping that some, if not many, of you are arranging your own team meetings and will tune in to the virtual event as a group, and then at the end turn and continue the discussions amongst yourselves about how the points raised impact on your own activities. One beauty of running the virtual events like this is that the discussions are extended so far beyond the meeting room itself. The downside, at least for me, is that when it ends I'll turn off the computer and just take myself and Ted, my new office puppy, off for a drink on our own! I think I might miss those networking opportunities that come with the face-to-face meetings... Anyway, please join us next week.

    Have a great week.
