Switching off the lights and heading home at the end of another busy #MedComms Day…

Way out West in Fishawack Communications’ San Francisco office, Tim Collinson enjoys the Californian end of the #MedComms Day.

Kicking off the day was an early morning call with a team spread across our Swiss and US offices, to brainstorm ideas for a 2017 medical plan with our client team (also based in Switzerland and San Francisco).

Next, a debriefing following recent interviews for our San Francisco editorial team positions. Med comms attracts such a diverse and talented bunch of experts and eccentrics! Always fun and interesting to meet; the search continues…

9:30 am: EU calls and emails down to a trickle. Time for some project work. A client’s poster has just been safely delivered in San Diego for the 58th annual meeting of the American Headache Society starting this week.  On to some reviewing – tracked changes can really make a mess eh? All for the greater good though.

Lunchtime: you’re never far from a good food truck in San Francisco – one right outside the office today –  the bear on California Republic flag looking down on it.  Food-in-belly, and a couple of blocks’ walk to the Moscone Center to check out the 2016 BIO International Convention. It’s a big deal and apparently over 15,000 biotechnology and pharma leaders are here in “the birthplace of biotech” for it.  FDA Commissioner, Robert Califf, urged industry to “talk to patients”; and Will Smith gave a keynote talk. Say no more!

We’re already focused on a busy week of client meetings next week, which took care of the afternoon. Preparation is everything!
