MedComms Networking - 06 July 2021
First, a shout out for everyone who has joined me so far this year, for the various and many live #MedComms webinars. Kudos all for the open, insightful discussions.
And we've still got some good ones coming over the next couple of weeks before I take a break in August. Details are always bang up-to-date at MedCommsNetworking.com.
I like the fact that however many turn up on the day, that we post the recordings afterwards for free access for anyone, anywhere, anytime at NetworkPharma.tv. Hopefully we provide a valuable service to our wider, global community.
And I loved what I heard the other day. At Langland they apparently arrange "NetworkPharma and Chill" events. They gather together, choose a recording to stream, and then use that as the basis for group discussions.
Exactly what I want to believe happens.
Overall, we now have a good mixture of recordings. Some that focus in on an individual agency and how they work, others where we mix it up and have input from across different companies and solution providers, and others where we talk more specifically about individual tools, services and practices. Or, for instance, where we talk about specialist areas of research and activity.
Sometimes we try to provide insights for wannabes, sometimes for all experienced MedComms folks, sometimes for specialist groups. But everyone's always welcome.
Altogether it's a valuable collection. At least, I think so. What do you think? Feedback would be welcomed, along with ideas for topics, speakers and panellists for the Autumn programme of webinars.
Last week we heard from Julieann Tate (Head of Learning, Talent and Development), James Hadfield (Strategy Director) and Sally Cordon-Painter (Associate Scientific Services Director) about how growth has been, and continues to be, at the heart of Lucid life. Watch the video now.
And we also squeezed in an EXTRA webinar, when McCann Health Medical Communications shared the experiences of their first FuEL participants (FuEL is their new programme for entry-level staff). I was joined online by Daniel Cicognani (HR Business Partner) and current FuEL participants: Trang Au (Associate Medical Writer), Abbie Daniels (Associate Account Executive), Sam Depetrillo (Associate Regulatory Writer) and Nicholas Strange (Associate Editor). Watch the video now.
Tomorrow we'll talk about combining writing and project management and the hybrid role in MedComms with David Harvey (Scientific Project Services Director), Victoria Heneage (Associate Scientific Project Lead), Sarah El-Sheikh (Scientific Lead) and Natalie Wood (Scientific Project Leader) from the Helios Global Group. Please join us.
Next week should be of interest to everyone and very topical for many of us after the year we've had. We'll talk about managing pressure in MedComms.
Then we end the current series with what should be an interesting session. We'll run the MedComms Forum on 21 July as an extended webinar and explore Veeva for MedComms agencies. Please join us, ask your questions of the experts and share your own experiences of their PromoMats and MedComms platforms. Please encourage all relevant others to join in.
Stay well, everyone.
