    MedComms Networking - 27 September 2016


    First, a huge "shout out" to Lucid Group, our newest Sponsors of MedComms Networking. Thanks, Guys! They join an illustrious group of leading agencies providing support and guidance. As I always say, "none of all this could happen without them." Maybe every week should be "Hug a Sponsor week"? Lucid went a step further and also sponsored so that's a double big thanks.

    Last week, Freelancers who subscribe to the MedComms Workbook service gathered in Oxford for another of our unique 6-monthly workshops. Many thanks to Kathryn White who led an excellent session about working efficiently and to Jenny Fanstone, Corinne Swainger and Jane Tricker for helping plan and facilitate the sessions overall. It was good to see some work opportunities going out to the MedComms Workbook list last week for account management work - remember, it's not just about writers. The service is still stupidly simple and free of charge if you need any sort of freelance MedComms support.

    The various informal gatherings being organised by the freelancers are gathering pace as well. In some cases they're expanding their audience. Tonight Lisa Stewart has a group meeting in Warrington and has invited remote workers in MedComms as well freelancers to join them. Next week Mary Greenacre is doing the same in Newcastle.

    Looking ahead a little, Jenny Fanstone, here in Oxford, is gathering local freelancers together again on 11 October, Fiona Weston is doing likewise in Leeds on 13 October and Jen lewis in Cambridge on 14 October.

    I'm particularly keen to see activity outside the UK and we've a good crowd signed up now to gather in Berlin on 7 October with an impressive multi-disciplinary panel, talking about how social media is impacting on MedComms. Supported by StGiles Medical the group will consider options for regular networking events across the German-speaking (D.A.CH) countries. In fact we sold out yesterday - so we increased the numbers. Note also that the night before, on 6 October, a group of freelancers based in Berlin have arranged their own informal gathering. For information contact local organisers, Carola Krause and Paul Wafula.

    Meanwhile, we've another Brunch Club meeting on 6 October in Oxford. We'll be looking again at getting a job in MedComms and we've four more useful presentations lined up. As always, I'm keen to get a small audience with us on the day so please help spread the word amongst all relevant others. Lunch is on me for those who join us! As always, though, the Brunch Club is all about producing the webcasts to include in the growing library at for free access by everyone.

    I'm still keenly searching out videos about life in MedComms, so it was good to see Mudskipper release their new video, Making the move to Med Comms with Mudskipper. Let me know if you produce any similar videos. We also posted a new article about life as an Intern at Highfield Communication at More contributions are welcome.

    Have a good week everyone.
