    MedComms Networking - 16 April 2024


    Let's not shy away from the fact, these are tough times for many across our community.

    A collective belt-tightening has been underway and the eagle-eyed amongst you will see changes across our various #MedComms services as I reset and adapt to leaner times. But it's even more important during challenging times to support the global community and to promote our specialist industries. There's still lots we can do, even if times are leaner, if we keep it simple. Please join in, everyone. Go #MedComms!

    So, a HUGE thanks to the Sponsors who have stuck with us. I can't do any of this without you! MedComms constantly evolves and many businesses will thrive. We still need to meet the needs of clients, multiple stakeholders and audiences. We need to embrace new technologies and continue to set the highest standards. We still need to attract top talent.

    Having taken a brief hiatus, we've another busy time ahead. The regular free #MedComms webinars start again on Wednesday 01 May, when we explore
    the benefits (and downsides) of pro bono work in the medical communications sector. We've another FirstMedCommsJob careers event on 27 June at Birmingham University and we'll go back to basics with an in-person, informal event at Alderley Park on 10 July. Hopefully we've more surprises coming along the way. And, of course, our 13th Annual MedComms Day is 12 June. Hold onto your hats everyone, everywhere! Details of what's coming are always bang up to date at and ideas are always welcome.
