Thought for the day

This just in from Beatrice Ferri at AS&K Group

2020 hasn’t been the year any of us would have wished, but it has certainly shown the importance of accurate and clear communications about healthcare – and the value that medical communications as an industry brings to advancing scientific knowledge and medical practice. AS&K is proud to celebrate the professionalism of our industry. #MedCommsDay 2020

We’ll say goodbye for now

I make no apologies for re-using my standard text below from previous years. I can’t see straight anymore! Good night, one and all.

I need some sleep and it does look like we’re finished here for the day. So I am calling a halt to our MedComms Day 2019. It’s been interesting but a lot of work again. Hopefully it’s provided a useful insight into the specialist business we call MedComms and been a bit of fun for everyone as well.

Please note, I’m very aware I now need to go back over some of the postings and tidy the content. Please feel free to email me at peter@networkpharma.com and point me at any errors that need fixing if you spot them before me.

I’d welcome comments and feedback so please do leave comments here or contact me directly. I am, as always, happy to chat anytime.

Meanwhile, please keep the conversations going on Twitter using hashtag #medcomms and join us at the MedComms Networking Facebook page and the MedComms Networking LinkedIn Group as well. Anyone working in or around MedComms is welcome to join in with the activities of the MedComms Networking Community.

Goodnight from us, wherever in the world you are now. I need a drink!

Cheers

Peter Llewellyn

MedComms freelancers do lunch

It’s great to see these informal gatherings of freelancers occurring. It’s good to network. This message was sent in by Fiona Weston, freelance copy-editor.

MedComms Day was very thoroughly celebrated in Yorkshire by the northern subgroup of the MedComms Workbook. Five of us – (clockwise from left), Jenny Smith, Sarah Whitfield, Vicki Evans, Fiona Weston and Howard Donohue – raised a glass and said “Cheers!” to Medcomms, freelancing, and Peter at a long and chatty lunch in Leeds today. Apologies came from Lisa O’Rourke, Felicity Leigh, Andy Lockley and Selena Class, who were all too busy actually MedComming to make it! Here’s to another great year of MedComms and thanks Peter for all you do for our community. Now it’s back to work to catch up the time lost!
