    MedComms Networking - 11 September 2018

    Hi

    It looks like we've a big crowd joining us at the Open Careers event in Manchester on Thursday. Please tell anyone who's still interested in coming to contact me ASAP now, and I'll squeeze them in if I can. Thanks. By the way, if you offer training schemes or internships and so on for wannabes, have you checked your own web site(s) recently to see if any of us might easily find the details? Just askin'. Some of you might be surprised how well you've hidden them. I am of course, as always, happy to pass on details via our FirstMedCommsJob.com services but please if you do then post something clearly and easily discoverable on your web site.

    Meanwhile, I'm looking forward to our next Sponsors' meeting on 24 September. We'll be joined by Leslie Galloway, Chairman of the Ethical Medicines Industry Group (EMIG). It should be a fascinating insight in to what is happening, within and around our industry, about the Brexit plans, whatever stage those are at by then. Leslie has just had an Opinion Piece article published in PharmaTimes, which you might all like to read at; An industry abandoned.

    Later that same week, we've our next Freelancer's workshop on 26 September. We now have both guest speakers confirmed. Steve Doyle, of Linking Business, a specialist trainer in the use of Linkedin, will lead a discussion about maximising the use of this powerful networking platform and now we've also confirmed Angie Wiles will lead a discussion about 'working differently'. Angie is Founder of The Difference Collective, which claims to be a unique organisation with a new business model that connects the best people and projects in health communications. These events are hugely useful but it's surprisingly difficult, I find, to get freelancers out to play! As I'm always quick to remind them, though, they're running small businesses. We all need to invest in our businesses; learn from others, think about how we can work smarter, and prospect for new business. And as freelancers the idea is to have some control over your time. And there will be cake! Needless to say, I still have some space if you'd like to join us, whether or not you subscribe to the MedComms Workbook service.

    So, what about some more suggestions for your next coffee break:

    There's no doubt data-driven communications is becoming 'a thing'. Check this out in AdAge; Real-time reaction: Watch Nike's Kaepernick ad expose a generational divide.

    My favourite this week was a video; Paywall: The Business of Scholarship. Arguably a tad one-sided and it's an hour plus, but I reckon it's worth making time for and makes you think. I am, of course, a believer though, hopefully, not in a "religious" way.

    Enjoy your week. Remember, details of our activities are kept bang up-to-date at www.MedCommsNetworking.com or give me a shout at any time if you've any questions, comments or suggestions.

    Cheers
