Yay – another new client!

It’s a successful day for Corinne Swainger, Freelance medical writer.

I’m celebrating a day in the life of MedComms after a successful meeting with a new client in SW London regarding copywriting and consulting for an unbranded EU campaign. I’m now at Waterloo Underground station, heading home to Harrow, Middlesex in time to attend a parents’ meeting at my son’s school. This should be interesting: finding out the best ways to help him study for his new GCSEs. Who said meetings were boring?


“It’s fab up north”

The last lot from the lovely team at AMICULUM. These from Bollington.

We have:

  • Mudskipper’s Betty en route to Vienna
  • The AMICULUM Digital team enjoying the Cheshire sunshine
  • Some of Delta Kn’s specialists in healthcare learning actually enjoying a meeting about analytics
  • Our favourite Mudskipper Kiwis, Keri and Helene, smiling surely just because it’s MedComms Day
  • Birthday girl, Carmen, hopefully about to share at least a little of that cake
  • “Duckling watch” at the Boathouse
  • The team in Bollington downing tools for a well-deserved lunch break


Happy Birthday, Mudskipper!

Thanks to Nadia Schendzielorz of Mudskipper who sent us this collection of photos from the day.

Mudskipper is a multi-national medical communications agency so we wanted to contribute to your event today. It’s particularly great timing for us as it is actually Mudskipper’s 12th birthday on this very day!

We have put together a set of pictures from the perspective of two of our new starters. We hope our contribution will highlight the opportunities for those new to the industry while also giving a feel for a typical (and busy) ‘day in the life of Mudskipper’.



The (not so) new kid on the block

Richard Allcorn of Amiculum Ltd has written in with news of their official new office opening , today in Singapore. Champagne, anyone?

AMICULUM decided to celebrate MedComms Day by establishing a new business in Singapore this morning.

OK, I confess that the actual reason we selected 12th June for incorporation of AMICULUM (Singapore) is that today we are celebrating Mudskipper UK’s 12th birthday.

Wishing you all the best for an exciting day!

Time for champagne?

David Bennett from Dice Medical Communications might be cracking open a bottle of bubbly later on…

This might sound a bit self-congratulatory, but it’s made my day in medcomms!

After what appeared to be a biblical deluge of 40 days – but who’s counting – the sun has come out in more than one way, with a positive response to a proposal submitted during the early summer that was March!

It’s a chastening experience for all those former industry clients who ‘crossed over’ to the agency side to taste the frustrating feeling that the proposal you and colleagues slaved over was intercepted by a passing black hole. Has the prevarication by industry increased since ‘my day’? Surely I was never so slow.

As you can guess, the time elapsed since the proposal has no effect on the original deadline for the first deliverable. Might as well start raining again!
