    MedComms Networking - 14 July 2020

    Hi

    During lockdown I've been running my latest series of 10 weekly #MedComms webinars. Thanks to all involved. By and large they worked well again. In total, we've been joined online by hundreds of participants. The few real problems we had were mostly due to flaky home internet connections. The recordings are freely accessible at NetworkPharma.tv and in the MedComms YouTube channel and elsewhere. So, hundreds, maybe thousands, more people, who couldn't join us on the day watch those, benefit from what we've done and can follow up directly with speakers and panellists.

    It's just me and Teddy doing it all, essentially at no cost although, frankly, it's taken up a lot of time. It's not clever or sophisticated. It is informal, simple and, hopefully, just plain useful for lots of people who work in or around our global MedComms community, or who want to join us. Think about the bigger potential opportunity.

    When I started the regular webinars, 18 months ago, I was mildly excited. Zoom offered an opportunity for me that was transformative. Bear in mind I don't have the fancy kit, or the pharma company scale funding, that some of you play with. Other video solutions, if not expensive, I found to be clunky and less than ideal. Zoom was a game-changer for some of us.

    In January this year when I was arranging the most recent series of webinars, I was still generally faced by speakers and audiences who hadn't used such technology before.

    Fast forward just a few short weeks and everyone's an expert! Zoom and other platforms have developed in leaps and bounds. Talk about accelerated progress. Now we're all "Zoomed out".

    I remain firmly of the opinion that what we've seen over the past few months is fundamentally transforming our MedComms business. It'll accelerate changing working practices and significantly open up "working from home" and "working from anywhere" approaches. It'll change the nature of many office spaces. Change the nature of client-agency relationships. And dramatically accelerate the evolution in services delivered.

    Not everyone agrees with me.

    But it sure does lead to some interesting discussions! Do join in.

    Here's an interesting read from Out of office: has the homeworking revolution finally arrived?.

    And, importantly, tomorrow we've now nearly 500 registrations for our special extended #MedComms webinar, Disrupted events: what's happening in #MedComms practice? Five sessions, each starting on the hour and lasting for 45 minutes. Please join us. Come and go as you like, join us for a part or the whole. Ask questions. Share your own thoughts and experiences. We hope to provide valuable, practical insights and stimulate wider debate across the MedComms business arena. Everyone's welcome. It won't be clever or sophisticated. It is informal, simple and, hopefully, just plain useful. But we'll certainly be talking about some clever stuff.

    Remember, details of all our activities are kept bang up-to-date at www.MedCommsNetworking.com or give me a shout at any time if you've any questions, comments or suggestions.

    Stay safe and well, everyone.

    Cheers
