    MedComms Networking - 25 September 2018


    We had a really interesting day yesterday with the Sponsors of MedComms Networking. Our guest, Leslie Galloway, Chairman of the Ethical Medicines Industry Group (EMIG), provided some fascinating insights into the current state of the UK industry in particular. I hadn't realised quite how challenging the UK environment was becoming, and that's before worrying about Brexit! Anyway, a big thanks to all the Sponsors. Without their continued support none of all this would be possible.

    I've added some new dates into the diary over the past couple of days.

    Oxford PharmaGenesis are hosting our next Brunch Club meeting in their central Oxford office. What next? The role of industry in driving change in medical publishing is on 17 October. It's 2018, the year of the first pharma open access mandate, so ahead of Open Access Week, we'll be exploring how industry can work with other stakeholders to make better use of opportunities for open access, author information systems and preprints to increase speed and transparency within medical publications. As with all the Brunch Club events, the primary purpose is to film several talks which are then posted on for free access by the global community afterwards, but we welcome an audience on the day so please join us if you can for what should be another useful educational and networking session.

    And then we'll Meet the Publishers on 5 December - some of them, at least. So far we have Adis, Future Science Group, SAGE Publishing and Taylor and Francis talking about their services and discussing current and future developments. Sign up in the usual way by emailing me directly.

    Face-to-face is always best, but the virtual platforms provide all sorts of opportunities now, and I'm happily planning many more of these.

    We've now passed 100 registrations for next week's Virtual Event, Medical communications for emerging versus established markets. Supported by Blue Sky eLearn as usual, I'm running this one with Healthcare21 Communications and on the panel we've got Genevieve Chase, Client Services Lead, HealthCare21 Singapore, Stephen Doyle GM Head of China and Global Head of Commercial Operations at ASLAN Pharmaceuticals, Pascal Rufi, Medical Multiple Sclerosis Lead from Sanofi-Genzyme and Sally Stringer, Scientific Director, HealthCare21 Communications. Once again, the emphasis will be on encouraging the audience to ask questions and share their own experiences. Join us, from wherever in the world you are. Everyone welcome. Please help spread the word. Get some cake in and gather your team together and join in as a group.

    Meanwhile last week I ran a free Webinar for the wannabes with Katie Johnson, Talent Acquisition Associate at Ashfield Healthcare Communications, talking about their Allegro training programme for Associate Medical Writers. View the video on YouTube or you'll also find it, along with much more, at and Feel free to share details with all relevant others. Note these webinars for the wannabes are a very new initiative for us so any and all feedback, thoughts and comments are welcomed.

    Enjoy your week, everyone.
