    Feel free to watch any of the videos at your leisure, where and whenever it suits you, but hopefully they'll provide a valuable training resource for those of you in companies where you can gather a group together to watch a video and discuss how the presentation can translate into practical actions for you.

    If you want to join us at future Brunch Club meetings and meet the speakers then just let me know. All suggestions for future content and speakers welcomed. Volunteers very much welcomed!

    This library of free webcasts at at is being developed with input from many members of this global MedComms Networking Community and generously supported by Concise. Without their collective input none of this would be possible in this way. We'll continue to build this valuable resource through our monthly MedComms Networking Brunch meetings so keep an eye on the list of events below and on the website where details of all our activities are always kept bang up-to-date.

    It'll certainly be a busy Autumn. Our next Brunch Club event is 6 September in Oxford and our next careers event is 14 September in Manchester (please spread the word). That's followed by meetings with the Sponsors in London (that should be interesting; we'll be joined by Marie-Claire Pickaert, Deputy Director General of EFPIA - let me know if you've questions you'd like us to ask her) and the freelancers meet on 27 September. There's more besides and a whole lot more being planned. Watch this space.

    And let me know if you're organising anything relevant for this community yourself. Stgilesmedical are organising 'The Art of Being a Patient' on 28th September 2017 at their London offices. Tony Pickering is a talented artist completing his MSc at MMU. He is also a recently-diagnosed patient with Type 1 Diabetes. As well as coping with this, he is looking after his father with Alzheimer's Disease. All these mixed experiences are expressed through his art. This is a free event (they just need to know that you're coming). Among the guests are representatives from the Evening Standard, Independent, The BMJ etc. There'll be champagne, light jazz and canapes. It should be an interesting evening.

    Meanwhile, enjoy your week.
