On 10 June 2020, we’re once again celebrating the global business that is MedComms. Please join in and help spread the word. This is the ninth year we’re running this annual event. So, here’s the standard blurb, as we start #MedComms Day 2020 and look forward to our first posts, which, all being well, will come in from New Zealand. Then we’ll track across the time zones and finish as the sun sets somewhere on the West coast of the USA – enjoy it, everyone!
Led by members of the MedComms Networking Community, but open to anyone and everyone involved in and around MedComms, anywhere in the world, we hope to be able to capture a representative snapshot of working life in our specialist business. All feedback is welcomed. We’ll be posting stories here on this web site throughout the day, and we’re expecting lots of activity on Twitter using hashtag #medcomms. There’s the MedComms Networking Facebook page and the MedComms Networking LinkedIn Group as well.
How it will work:
We’re expecting lots of social media activity from people across the world who will be posting updates directly via their accounts. Importantly, anyone can then contribute stories, news, photos, videos and so on, to this web site, by emailing a message to Peter Llewellyn of NetworkPharma Ltd, email email@example.com who will be responsible for posting and curating the content here, throughout the day. Clearly, we need to adhere to professional standards of good taste and decency and avoid any risk of compromising client confidentiality, but beyond that we simply hope to demonstrate the wide variety of activities that are being undertaken on any day, reflect the highs and lows of working life, and maybe show us having a little fun along the way!
So what might be posted here on 10 June?
This year sure is going to be different for most of us because of the COVID-19 crisis! We’re unlikely to hear much about travelling to international conferences, client meetings and Team Away Days. Instead, plenty of online video meetings I’m guessing, and reflections from home-workers across the global community.
We’re looking forward to seeing what is happening in the world of MedComms on 10 June 2020. Prizes will, of course, be on offer to anyone who sends in particularly noteworthy contributions.
If you have any questions during or after the day, please contact Peter Llewellyn, email firstname.lastname@example.org to whom you should also send all contributions for postings.
Note: Peter Llewellyn runs the MedComms Networking Community. This global initiative facilitates networking and dialogue amongst individuals working in and around the pharmaceutical industry and MedComms, focusing on specialist medical education, medical communications and medical publishing activities. Why not sign up to our weekly newsletter and please, help spread the word amongst all relevant others.
