    MedComms Networking - 06 December 2016

    Hi

    Let's start with a serious question, then - #MedComms Networking is 10 years old on 25 January. What next? How should we adapt for the next 10? Advice please. Either ping me your thoughts privately or better still help us get an open discussion going in the MedComms Networking Linkedin group.

    All thoughts welcomed. Don't be coy. Be as critical as you like, but be constructive! Funding has always been and remains a very serious challenge and not everything I've tried over the past 10 years has worked, I know, but much has and many people get real value from the various services at and around www.MedCommsNetworking.com - but where do we go from here? Should we, in fact, go anywhere? A lot has changed over the past 10 years. Have we had our day? More specifically, have I had my day? Help me decide.

    We've had our first 50 acceptances for the celebrations themselves, here in Oxford at The Jam Factory on 25 January but there's lots of room yet to fill. And the plan is indeed to fill it. See if you can fit it in your busy diary and if so let me know you're coming, and please help spread the word and encourage all relevant others to join us. This one will be fun! If you can't be there on the day please join in virtually by following and contributing to hashtag #MedComms on Twitter.

    Meanwhile we've a good crowd of us meeting this Thursday at our afternoon workshop in Macclesfield, Publishing, medical writing and authorship: Is more transparency needed? (just ping me an email if you want to join us and I'll squeeze you in if I can).

    Also on Thursday, Fiona Weston is organising another informal gathering of the local freelancers for a seasonal lunch in Leeds. Contact Fiona directly if you want to join them.

    Jen Lewis also announced today that she's organising a similar informal gathering for the freelancers in and around East Anglia next week on 14 December in Ely. Contact Jen directly if you want to join them.

    Importantly, we're now gearing up for our next Careers event in January, supported by Oxford University. These events have proven their value time and time again, so if you know anyone at all who is interested in finding out more about careers in and around MedComms, please encourage them to sign up. It's entirely free of charge for the attendees and we'll have representatives from a dozen good agencies present on the day.

    What counts in the end is that more people get jobs and are happy with their decision. Emily Fisher recently started at CircleScience, one of the agencies within Ashfield Healthcare Communications, following one of their Assessment Days and has written about her Life as a new Associate Medical Writer for our information resource at FirstMedCommsJob.com. I'm keen to get more such contributions so do get in touch if you've a story to tell.

    Enjoy your week everyone.

    Cheers
