    MedComms Networking - 19 May 2020


    Last week we hit a minor milestone. I've been slowly building the MedComms YouTube channel and we surpassed 1,000 subscribers. Hooray! We've not quite gone "viral" yet, I guess, but it felt like a good result!

    And we've been busy adding more videos over recent days. Particularly for the wannabes.

    In last week's weekly webinar, Jessica Beishon (Scientific Team Lead) and Jo Fetterman (Senior Scientific Specialist) from Parexel talked about their company, what MedComms means for them and the different roles within their teams. Watch the video here.

    Then yesterday I ran our annual Meet the Agencies event - online for the first time. Six agency presentations and one lively Question and Answer session later and I needed a drink! We had more than 300 registrations and nearly 200 of us online on the day. Very different to our usual small workshop. But great fun. Kudos to Matt Evans, Katie Johnson, Anne Clare Wadsworth, Diane Sutherland, Elena Mills and Paul Farrow. The recordings are all freely available...

  • Meet the MedComms agencies panel session 2020 [watch the video]
  • Meet AMICULUM [watch the video]
  • Meet Ashfield Healthcare Communications [watch the video]
  • Meet Envision Pharma Group [watch the video]
  • Meet Fishawack Health [watch the video]
  • Meet Helios Medical Communications [watch the video]
  • Meet Oxford PharmaGenesis [watch the video]

  • You'll also find all the recordings - and much more - if you visit the larger collection of videos at or the dedicated resource for wannabes at Please help spread the word and encourage all relevant others to take a look.

    Tomorrow, Wednesday, 20 May, we'll talk about Being a freelance writer in MedComms, with Kathryn White, author of "Making it my own business: a guide to being a freelance writer in MedComms", published in April 2020. Also on the panel will be freelance writers Hannah Bridges and Colleen Shannon who both contributed to that guide.

    And next week, on Wednesday 27 May, we'll talk about account management in practice with Ben Church (Oxford PharmaGenesis), Alice Fantom (Envision Pharma Group) and Charlotte Lupton (Helios Medical Communications) who are all profiled in the latest issue of our FirstMedComms careers guide, The business of medical communications: a guide to getting started in account management, published in January 2020.

    In other news, the 16th Annual Meeting of ISMPP (The International Society for Medical Publication Professionals) will now go ahead on a virtual basis, 16-18 June. The programme spotlights three themes: open access, effective communication, and evolving role. The registration fee includes all three days of sessions and access to the live and archived content until 31 August, 2020 and there are discounts for group bookings. I'll see you there. Register by 5 June.

    Finally, there's lots of chatter about plans for our annual #MedComms Day. It's 10 June. Make a note. It's going to be busy...
