On 10 June 2020 we celebrated A Day in the Life of MedComms, supported by Media Contacts.
It felt like a very different affair this year, maybe reflecting the lockdown situation many of us are still in, as a result of COVID-19. So, no travel stories, or reports from international conferences and the like. Far fewer pictures of groups gathered together around home-made cakes! Plenty of talk of online video meetings and virtual activities.
Lots of people and organisations from across the global MedComms community still got involved one way or another, but it’s very difficult to see the overall picture without having a lot more resource than we have available here.
There were certainly fewer contributions to this blog site and the trend of recent years whereby most public activity happens across LinkedIn and social media continued.
There seemed to be significantly more activity on LinkedIn this year (how do you measure that?) and less on Twitter (see summary report below), using the hashtag #MedComms. Ohers like Facebook and Instagram, for instance, still didn’t see so much activity.
Overall, it was great to see the variety of activity being undertaken across the global community and, hopefully, everyone had some fun along the way. We certainly helped to spread the #MedComms word a little further!
What do you think? Let me know.
This is the ninth year we have undertaken this exercise. Please let me know if you think it’s still worthwhile.
I’d really appreciate hearing your comments and feedback either posted here or sent direct to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks to the many who participated and supported us, one way or another.
Peter Llewellyn, NetworkPharma Ltd, founder of the global MedComms Networking Community and Curator of the Day in the Life of MedComms.
