Good morning from Sydney!

This just in from Ruth Hadfield, Freelance medical writer & research consultant and membership secretary of the Australasian Medical Writers Association, with an invite to Sydney in August.

It’s a wet and windy start today and I feel like I have done a day’s work already.  Getting teenagers out of bed and off to school is no mean feat especially when water polo training starts at 6am.

I am now settling down to attack my long to do list in my home office.  I have to admit on a wet winter’s day it feels like a real treat to be able to work from home.  First up today is getting the mailing list ready for the Australasian Medical Writers Association conference brochure to be sent out (in my volunteer capacity as membership secretary). 

#MedComms Day is a great opportunity to invite you all to Sydney for the AMWA 2017 conference which will be held on August 24-26.  The theme is ‘Communicating for Change’ and the range of workshops and speakers is fabulous, not to mention the irresistible Manly Beach venue. 

Also my to do list is preparing a quote for a local research centre who want help with their annual research report and writing the first draft of a new haematology guideline following a meeting with the authors on Monday.  The last thing on my to do list is the word TAX in capitals – the end of the tax year is 30 June here in Australia and I need to get my spreadsheets in order for the accountant – perhaps I’ll put that one off until tomorrow…
