MedComms Networking - 05 September 2023
So, how was your August? I took a breather. Of sorts. No weekly newsletters. Did anyone notice?
Frankly, I'm not feeling very rested. I've been working on our next big in-person event, Working in and around #MedComms at Heathrow on 25 September 2023. Are you joining us? Everyone's welcome and if it's half as good as last year it will be great! It's going to be worth making a full day of it. Start with early morning coffee and pastries and stay for evening drinks at the free bar!
It's simply unlike anything else in our sector and we're going to have some fun. And change some lives, again.
We're expecting hundreds to attend and, importantly, many more can access information online, about MedComms and about the organisations and individuals in our community, by visiting the wealth of content that's freely available at NetworkPharma.careers.
It's free to attend for entry-level jobseekers, so please tell any wannabes you know and follow the action using hashtag #MedComms on your own favourite social media platforms. Join in. The more noise we all make about #MedComms the better for everyone.
Whether you can join us or not on the day, you can watch recordings of these recent FirstMedCommsJob webinars at any time, from anywhere and hear from some of those who will be attending at Heathrow.
