    MedComms Networking - 24 April 2018

    Hi

    Readers of last week's email will know I allowed myself a moment or three of introspection. Having started, it's difficult to stop! Thanks to the 25 who took the time to reply with feedback and suggestions. It really does help me, and Teddy, think it all through. Last week's comments were very supportive and positive, which was great. But with 2,316 subscribers to this email list, from across MedComms and related businesses, that means a lot of you haven't expressed an opinion. Which leaves me worrying about you. So please, if you're in the 99 percent, take a few moments this week to ping me your thoughts. What's good? What's not so good? What else can we do? Importantly - what could YOU help us achieve?

    A consistent theme last week was the real practical success of the FirstMedCommsJob.com activities for wannabes. Hey look, people get help getting jobs! That also means employers get help finding staff. We all agree we need more good people working in MedComms.

    Our next careers event is our (third) Meet the Agencies Day in Oxford on 14 May when 20 or so wannabes get up close and personal with representatives from AMICULUM, Ashfield Healthcare Communications, Envision Pharma Group, Fishawack Group, Lucid Group and Oxford PharmaGenesis.

    I took the opportunity, yesterday, to do a quick audit of what's happened to previous attendees of this annual event. From the class of 2016, of the 16 I can track via Linkedin, 8 (50 percent) now work in MedComms agencies. Of the class of 2017, of the 23 I can track, 12 now work in MedComms (50 percent).

    That doesn't seem a bad success rate. And several more are in closely related businesses.

    I'm wondering how the class of 2018 will fare. We've only a couple of spaces left, so move quickly if you're thinking about joining us. See programme and registration details here.

    Importantly, we're then back in London on 27 June after a three year absence for another of our regular larger Open Careers events! Everyone's welcome. These events are well-proven, whether someone is just wondering what MedComms is about, or they know they want a job and want to find it quickly. We'll have 15 agencies there, which means probably 50 or so MedComms specialists, all happy to chat about career options. Please, help spread the word amongst all relevant others. Everyone in - and around - MedComms wins from the continued success of these events.

    Meanwhile, tomorrow we're in Knutsford talking about current pitfalls and opportunities in medical communications. Many thanks to inScience Communications for hosting us.

    And next Wednesday, CME specialists Eugene Pozniak and Sophie Wilson are presenting at our Brunch Club meeting in Oxford. Both are leading lights in European CME Forum and The Good CME Practice Group. If you're at all interested in medical education and CME/CPD then they're worth meeting. But if you can't make it, rest assured the webcasts will appear soon afterwards at NetworkPharma.tv.

    Have a great week.

    Cheers
