    MedComms Networking - 12 April 2022

    Hi

    This is either my daftest idea - or my best. Time will tell. I've announced a new in-person event, Working in and around #MedComms, 19 September 2022 at Heathrow. Everyone's welcome. We need to recruit more people. Lots of people want a job. Lots of people started jobs over the past couple of years, despite not meeting each other in real-life, and many still haven't met offline yet. It works. MedComms is booming! Hopefully, the services at FirstMedCommsJob.com help, but nothing in recruitment terms can replace the magic of F2F and seeing the chemistry working. This is a "people" business. Let's never lose sight of that. So, for all the value in online activity, let's now step up a gear.

    I want a messy, chaotic in-person meeting. A big, busy one. Top employers are joining in already. Kudos to AMICULUM, Ashfield Health, Aspire Scientific, Bioscript, Envision Pharma, Helios Medical Communications, McCann Health, NexGen Healthcare Communications, nspm, Nucleus Global, OPEN Health and Oxford PharmaGenesis. More are coming. Hopefully lots more. If you want to know more, give me a shout. I'm always happy to chat. If you work in or around MedComms and simply want to come and chat and meet others, please do. Anyone can sign up. Importantly, if you want to learn more about working in or around MedComms, make a day of it. Maybe change your life! It's free and we'll provide plentiful refreshments.

    We've a long way to go, but we've started. Lots more content will be added online, so even if you can't join us on the day, you can still access valuable information. It was heartening, though, to see registrations coming in overnight. Please now help spread the word. Encourage all relevant others to be there, in real-life.

    Talking of meeting F2F, our first fully in-person #MedComms Networking event for quite a while is at Alderley Park on 11 May. Join us for 'Living our values in MedComms' with a stellar panel. Thanks Charlie Buckwell (Chief Medical Communications Officer, IPG HEALTH), Kirsty Okyne (Agency Lead at Cogent, an AMICULUM agency), Dan O'Neill (Internal Communications and Engagement Manager at Fishawack Health), Anne Clare Wadsworth (Global Head, Business Strategy and Planning at Envision Pharma) and Simon Whiteley (Director, Helios Medical Communications) for leading the discussions. Everyone's welcome. Come and enjoy Alderley Park's hospitality!

    One topic for discussion in May will, undoubtedly, be the increasing focus across our community on DEI initiatives. You may be interested in these news items...

    Last week, the Healthcare Communications Association (HCA) published their new DEI framework.

    The PM Society's Diversity Interest Group have also published some survey results

    And tomorrow, the Friends of the National Library of Medicine (FNLM) are running an online meeting, Fairness and Inclusivity in Scientific Publishing.

    Meanwhile our Wednesday #MedComms webinars continue. Tomorrow is about freelancing. Next week we'll discuss working in the specialist fields of rare diseases and genomic medicine. If you miss any, find the recordings on NetworkPharma.tv.

    There's lots more coming - online and onsite.

    Cheers
