    MedComms Networking - 10 May 2022

    Hi

    Today's hot news - #MedComms Day 2022 is 22 June! I ran #MedComms Day for 10 years but this year I've stepped to one side. That's no excuse not to celebrate. Make a diary note. Make lots of noise. All being well, we'll see lots of #MedComms activity on social media and various events happen across the time zones. Importantly, AMICULUM, Langland and Oxford PharmaGenesis will host a virtual event at 12.00 midday, UK time, where attendees will be able to network with medcomms professionals, seek careers advice from agency HR/recruitment teams, discuss hot topics, and learn more about the industry as a whole. Find out more at MedCommsDay.com and keep the #MedComms torch burning bright!

    Meanwhile, word is spreading about our #MedComms careers event, 19 September at Heathrow. A good number of employers have signed up. Most recently Langland, Certara Insight and now, this week, Omnicom Health Group. More are committed and their details will appear online over the coming days. Others are talking about joining us (stop talking, guys, just say "YES". We'll work out the details later!).

    Now we know lots of employers will be there, attention is turning to the agenda. It's starting to shape up and will include masterclasses led by Debbie Brix-Reynolds (author of A writer's role in drug development: a guide to getting started in regulatory medical writing), Performance Coach Katia Chrysostomou, Annick Moon (author of From academic to medical writer: a guide to getting started in medical communications), Trainer and Mentor Sarah Nelson, Vicky Sherwood (host of the STEM careers blog, Biomed Badass) and Eleanor Steele aka the "MedComms Mentor". Kudos all.

    And AMICULUM are the first employer to break cover and confirm they'll run their own workshops alongside. More employers are talking about taking extra rooms and running related activities. There's lots of space at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre at Heathrow and currently it's all ring-fenced for us! Can we fill it? You decide. If you want to join in, let me know. It will be unlike anything we've seen before in our sector.

    As I said here on LinkedIn at the weekend, I am mildly excited.

    And a tad nervous.

    Which also sums up my feelings about tomorrow. Our first in-person MedComms Networking event for a very long time! Quite a crowd is gathering at Alderley Park for an important discussion, Living our values in MedComms.

    First though - and not entirely unrelated - in our Wednesday webinar, Lucy Bee, Susan Brackenridge, Amy Jackson and Emily Singletary will talk about new training and career initiatives at Fishawack Health. Everyone's welcome. Next week, we continue the learning and development theme when Carmen Candler and Cathy Kirk share why they think mentoring is bringing new learning experiences to Oxford PharmaGenesis. Join us.

    There's lots more happening. Online and Onsite.

    P.S. if you missed last week's webinar with Alan Thomas, patient advocate for Ataxia and related rare diseases,
    watch the recording here. It's well worth it.

    Cheers
