    WHAT'S HAPPENING - [view previous events]

    MedComms Networking has evolved from what was largely UK-based activity but now embraces a global community of medical communications specialists, and we welcome participation by anyone working in or around MedComms and the global Pharma industry, anywhere in the world. I am particularly keen to see the development of activities led by other individuals and specifically based in other regions so if you would like to act as a local organiser for - or you would like to provide funding for - such events please contact me directly.

    I'm always happy to chat and all feedback is welcome, so give me a shout anytime or please post your thoughts to the MedComms Networking Linkedin group for discussion.

    Scroll down to see details of activities that are planned for the coming months.

    Meantime, you can see reports of all the previous meetings here.

We'll take another breath and then run through to the end of the year. That's a lot of Wednesdays to fill. So if you have suggestions for topics or speakers or best of all if you'd like to join in, please let us know. We'll also be running irregular Extra Webinars and other online events. We won't run face-to-face meetings in 2021. Any questions, at any time, please contact Peter Llewellyn.


    WEEKLY #MEDCOMMS WEBINAR
    Medical Society Conferences: What we learnt in 2020, what might happen in 2021

    Venue: Global
    Date: 12.00 UK time, 20 January 2021

    Len Starnes, Digital Healthcare Consultant, is an expert commentator on how medical societies have - or have not - integrated digital approaches into their events. And how the pharmaceutical and medtech industries engage with those events. COVID-19 caused massive disruption and, out of necessity, a significant acceleration of progress towards more digital formats for events of all types. In this webinar, we'll reflect on what we've learnt so far and what are the Medical Societies planning for the coming year? And what it might mean for MedComms specialists. And we'll answer questions from the audience.
