Winding down in San Francisco

June 12, 2019

So, it looks like #MedComms Day 2019 is winding down quickly now. Before he went on holiday, our regular west coast contributor, Tim Collinson, Business Unit Head, West Coast, Fishawack Group, prepared a short message for us to make sure we ended the day in the right place and on time! Thanks, Tim.

Hello from the world’s largest life sciences cluster (according to the California Life Sciences Association)!  I’m enjoying a week’s break from my busy #MedComms role in the San Francisco Bay Area (pre-writing this message so that I can enjoy the offline great outdoors).  A wonderful team at Fishawack means reliable cover for each other when we want to recharge our batteries.  And this week’s battery charging will be the energy for next week’s UC San Diego Extension’s ‘Expert Strategies and Skills for Medical and Scientific Communication’ Professional Workshop – a gathering I’m looking forward to, where I’ll be participating in a panel discussion with some friendly familiar faces and experts from California biotech, academia and agency, on trending topics in medical and scientific communication.  Before long it’ll be the 2nd annual ISMPP West meeting too – preparations already underway in earnest for that.  Best wishes for the last hours of MedComms Day, everyone!

Chatting with the New Zealand writers

June 12, 2019

Well, that was fun. Using zoom meant a group of us from aross New Zealand and elswhere could chat informally together about working life for medical writers. We covered off developing business, keeping clients and when necessary knowing when to turn away projects.

Thanks to Matt Boyd and Marie Cheeseman and Mark English and Adi Ferrara and Sheridan Henness and Blair Hesp and Harriet Lamb and Kathryn Lee and Daniel McGowan and Tricia Newell and Nicola Ryan and Lyndal Staples for joining in.

And it looks like we’ve agreed we’ll do it again, sometime soon. I look forward to it.

Kia ora world! MedComms day – Dunedin, New Zealand

June 11, 2019

Here we go. Every year the same. More stunning photos arrive from New Zealand making me wish I had moved there when I was younger! Mark Caswell, Medical Writer at BPAC, has just been for a run…

Here is the start of MedComms day in Dunedin as seen on my morning run. I’m not going into the office today as I am solo parenting our two year old and the day will be spent at home. My parents normally look after her on a Wednesday, but they are overseas… Anyways, I probably will miss the zoom meeting later this morning, but we’ll see what happens. I hope you have a great day and good on you for organising.

Nearing the time for sun downers

June 6, 2018

It’s become a tradition, as we head towards the end of another #MedComms Day, that Sarah Smith, a freelance medical writer and editor based on her boat in the Caribbean reminds us that you can freelance in #MedComms from anywhere these days… today that’s Calvigny Island in the background. A playground for the rich and famous apparently! Well played, Sarah!

Never a dull moment

June 6, 2018

David Jenkins, Senior Medical Writer at AXON summarises their day’s activities across the globe.

It’s been business as usual across the AXON offices today; our offices in mainland Europe (Copenhagen and Switzerland) were the first to get started. In London we enjoyed a pizza lunch followed by a spectacular cake! Colleagues in Brighton enjoyed a coffee in the sunshine between deadlines. New York and Toronto came online in their respective timezones to continue the day. Some of our colleagues are fresh (?) back from ASCO and catching up. Busy, varied, cake-fuelled, but never dull….

A well-earned break at Independence Mall

June 6, 2018

As Europeans start winding down their working day, and the New Zealanders are presumably fast asleep, the US teams are now just getting in to their stride. Here’s the inScience Communications team, based in Philadelphia, posing for a group photo during their lunch break today.

The Philadelphia office of inScience Communications – Springer Healthcare is located in the heart of historic Old City. Following a morning of publications work and client status meetings, members of the Scientific Services team take a well-earned break at Independence Mall (left to right: Amanda Sheldon, Jon Raksin, Michelle Daniels, Jessica Deckman, Chris Radel, and Elizabeth Strickland).

Helping clients change the world

June 6, 2018

This year on #MedComms Day 2018, the team at Caudex would like to share how they, as a Medical Communications agency, help their clients change the world.

Happy MedComms day from Ubud, Bali!

June 6, 2018
Margot Baldwin, a freelance Zinc-er and expert in Vault Promomats is feeling the heat.
I’m writing this from the sweltering and beautiful co-working space that is Hubud in Ubud, Bali. Today’s activities include eating delicious food, swimming and a quick massage before it’s back to the grindstone (or is it really….?) to work. The most stressful part of my day is making sure that the (extremely bold) monkeys steer clear of my computer, electrical equipment (and, of course, food!) Oh and I mustn’t forget to mention the extreme festivities of Galungan descending upon me, assaulting and delighting all of the senses. Galungan is the extended Balinese holiday celebrating the victory of good over evil. So no biggie then.

Quite a juxtaposition to this time last year, when I was huddled over my laptop in sub zero temperatures of Edinburgh. A completely different beauty surrounded me then, as did a vastly different culture and climate. This is why I love freelancing so much – I never know where I’ll be one year to the next.

The REALLY great news, is that I can provide an overnight service for all my UK clients. It’s win-win for everyone!
