    MedComms Networking - 26 May 2020


    In last week's #MedComms webinar we talked with Kathryn White, author of our guide, "Making it my own business: a guide to being a freelance writer in MedComms", along with freelance medical writer, Hannah Bridges. It was great fun and hopefully useful to anyone thinking of making the leap. The video is freely available.

    Tomorrow, 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.

    Meanwhile, everyone, here we go again! We've only two weeks until #MedComms Day 2020 on 10 June! Please, join in from wherever you are in the world on the day. This year everything is different, with many of us in lock down to varying degrees. It'll be fascinating to see what happens.

    It's our ninth annual celebration of A Day in the Life of #MedComms and once again we'll start with the sun rising in New Zealand and end with it setting somewhere over San Francisco. In between I'm hoping - albeit slightly nervously - that it will be bonkers again. Each year it just gets busier. If nothing else, when you wake up in the morning on the 10th of June, wherever in the world you are, please SHOUT "hooray for #MedComms" on LinkedIn and across your social media accounts. There's going to be lots of noise. Lots happening. The more the better. Check out or, if you've any questions, contact me at any time.

    Some of you will notice a new look for This wasn't planned! At the weekend I discovered our familiar and very simple, but functional, WordPress theme had been "retired"! And it broke. So, I made some very quick decisions about what to do. If I survive this year, I'll celebrate our tenth anniversary with a more polished update. For now, I'll keep it simple. What's important is to collect your stories from around the world and support the crazy amount of social media type activity that's expected on the day.

    Aside from your own activities, if anyone wants to join us, we've an online meeting of the New Zealand medical writers at the start of their day to help kick things off. Our regular weekly #MedComms Webinar is in the middle of the UK's day (AMICULUM are talking about their learning and development platform) and we'll have a Freelancers' Huddle at 18.00 (wine o'clock) in the UK (to give me an energy boost for the final phase.) Also, a word to the wise and sociable types. Block out an hour or so about 16.00 UK time for a special activity we're announcing shortly. It'll be fun.

    Stay well, everyone.

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