    Meet the Publishers

    This is a valuable opportunity to hear directly from the publishers about their journals, their unique working practices and their plans for the coming year. A lively panel discuss current developments and future trends in publishing. On our panel we have Caroline Halford (Digital Publishing Manager at Springer Healthcare), Hamish McDougall (Business Development Manager, SAGE Publishing), Jonathan Patience (Head of Commissioning, Taylor and Francis) and Joanne Walker (Head of Publishing Solutions, Future Science Group). And we answer questions from the audience.

    WEBCAST:


    The benefits of having a client development strategy

    Research carried out by Frederick Reichheld of Bain and Co (the inventor of the net promoter score) showed that increasing your client retention rate by as little as 5 percent can increase profits by between 25 to 95 percent. Couple that with the fact it's five to twenty five times cheaper to grow existing clients rather than get new clients and you have a very compelling case to have a strategy in place to develop an agency's existing client base. In this webinar Jenny Plant (Owner, Account Management Skills) talks about how agency account managers can add value to their client's business, revenue to the bottom line of their agency and increase their career prospects by understanding how to create a client development strategy for account growth. And we answer questions from the audience.

    Best Practice in Medical Education

    When 'medical education' is mentioned, many people think immediately of continuing medical education (CME), but the remit can be much broader, encompassing areas such as product-specific medical education and disease awareness activities. In this webinar, Leigh van Wyk, Tracey Wood and Phil Loder of Ogilvy Health look at the latest thinking and best practice in medical education, covering topics such as pharma standards, needs assessments, principles of adult learning, and measurement of outcomes. And we answer questions from the audience.

Steve's background, working in and around medical communications and the pharmaceutical industry, makes him uniquely placed to provide advice about using Linkedin effectively, whatever your current position and aspirations within MedComms. Too often, LinkedIn is simply seen as an online CV. It is so much more than that. Learn about how to use the biggest professional networking platform more effectively. And we answer questions from the audience.

    Life as a MedComms Freelancer

    In this webinar we're joined by some experienced MedComms freelancers who answer questions about their working life. Have you thought about freelancing? Does the freedom sound attractive? No commute. Sitting in your pyjamas with the cat/dog beside you, while you charge lots by the hour? None of those interminable company meetings. What's not to like? Or is it lonely and isolating? Do you spend more time chasing payments than doing the work? What happens when the computer crashes and there's no IT colleague to help? Or you fall ill? Emma Georgiou, Jane Mason and Sarah Smith share their experiences. And we answer questions from the audience.
