    Every Tuesday we send out the MedComms Networking email newsletter to subscribers.

    MedComms Networking - 18 December 2018


    Despite my best efforts, once again we've arrived at the end of another year with all the associated problems that brings. Not least of which, it seems, is that many of you have already turned on your 'OOO' alerts. Maybe you're enjoying some well-earned rest. Or maybe not, if you have kids! Or maybe you just want a break from your never-ending stream of messages. Whatever, I'll happily do a little to help lighten your email load, for a short while at least.

    It means, though, when we get back to our desks we won't have long before our next Careers event in Oxford, so please take a moment now to ping a quick message to any contacts who might be thinking about a career in MedComms. Encourage them to sign up and join us on 10 January. They're all welcome. The more the merrier. After all, they are the life blood for our business. We all win by attracting more, talented, individuals to MedComms.

    If you're looking to recruit entry-level staff and would like to work with me on a virtual meeting to reach out to the wannabes, then give me a shout at any time. Our next such FirstMedCommsJob Webinar is booked for 17 January and is now open for registration. The senior Directors from inScience Communications will talk about their company, what MedComms means for them and the different roles within their teams. They'll explain their approach to recruitment and answer questions from the audience.

    There's much more planned for the wannabes next year. For instance, last week John Dixon and I ran a very successful trial virtual workshop using and we're confident we can roll out a useful programme. Once again, we clearly demonstrated the value of using online platforms and I'll do much more with them, not just for the wannabes, next year.

    However, as I keep arguing, there's nothing like meeting face-to-face when we can.

    So, our next FirstMedCommsJob: Meet the agencies careers day will be 13 May in Oxford and my thanks go to AMICULUM, Envision Pharma Group, Fishawack Group, Helios Medical Communications, Highfield Communication and Oxford PharmaGenesis for jumping straight on board and offering their support again.

    Thanks, also, to AMICULUM who'll be hosting Scientific storytelling and audience engagement II in Richmond, London on 23 May for everyone. It's the long-awaited sequel to the successful meeting we ran in May 2017. Join us if you can. Everyone's welcome.

    Meanwhile, it's standing room only today in London for discussions about Optimising training for medical writers. It should be fun - and enlightening. Or is it just the free champagne and mince pies that are attracting everyone? I wonder if we'll discuss using emoji in biomedical literature as proposed in The BMJ last week?

    So, enjoy yourself and may all your new year wishes come true. Remember, details of our activities are kept bang up-to-date at or give me a shout at any time if you've any questions, comments or suggestions.
