    Every Tuesday we send out the MedComms Networking email newsletter to subscribers. It includes brief commentary on what we're doing and planning, and highlights relevant news to encourage sharing of information, experiences and ideas and to stimulate discussion. The text and links included below, by definition, were accurate on the day of publication, but may then become outdated.

    MedComms Networking - 13 June 2017


    Well that was fun; last week's MedComms Day 2017. Wasn't it? A huge thanks to Concise for helping support our efforts. The winner of the Concise MedComms online quiz, which ran throughout the day, was Michele Gianatti at Synergy Vision.

    What do you think we achieved between us? Anything? Nothing? If you didn't join in - what stopped you? I've started a discussion in the MedComms Networking Linkedin group and I'd welcome your thoughts. Or drop me a line directly.

    If it all passed you by, check out what happened at and let me know what you think of what you find there. You'll find loads of great content if you follow hashtag #MedComms back on Twitter, as well. For the record, we saw 1,099 tweets from 299 contributors reach 203,246 accounts... which, frankly, seems quite good for a small niche business community. Read about the full Twitter experience here.

    The MedComms Day activity certainly reflected the global nature of the business, with contributions arriving from Auckland to San Francisco via Singapore, Shanghai, Warsaw, London, Oxford, New York, Trinidad and elsewhere. I'm keen we do more to engage with everyone around the world and although it's still early days I'm hoping the library of free webinars we're building at will help towards that end. Watch out for the new web site which will launch soon!

    At tomorrow's Brunch Club meeting we'll film three more webcasts, with Jackie Marchington from Caudex speaking about use of ORCID, managing copyrights and spotting predatory publishers. Please join us if you can - but let me know you're coming. We're nearly but not quite fully booked now with speakers at all the Brunch Club meetings throughout this year but I'm keen to hear more ideas for topics and speakers. Feel free to volunteer yourself if you think you've something useful to contribute.

    Importantly, and again looking towards involving everyone in MedComms, far and near, note that our first MedComms Virtual Event will be at 13.00 BST on Wednesday 28 June supported by Blue Sky eLearn. We've arranged an expert panel to talk about Virtual events; trends, best practices and avoiding pitfalls. There's no limit to numbers and I'm keen for you to gather your colleagues together and join in as groups all over the world. Bring in some sandwiches and cakes and have your own team meeting on the back of what we're doing. Full details of the programme are now available so sign up here please and help spread the word. All welcome. Assuming it works, we've plans for more such events later in the year.

    One final mention today. Julia Walton of Media Contacts is running another CV Clinic this weekend on 17 June from 11.00 AM, at their offices in Islington, London. It's free to attend for anyone looking to join MedComms and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. If preferred, Julia will run a telephone consultation. Simply email Julia directly on for details.

    Enjoy your week.
