    WHAT'S HAPPENING - [view previous events]

    LUNCH AND LEARN - 2 OCTOBER 2014 - OXFORD

    Motion graphics and 3D animation

    There's a lot of focus in MedComms on written words and the scientific and medical rigour and review that underpins them. However, we'd all acknowledge the added versatility and impact that can be gained with the correct use of high-end motion graphics. Just how accessible are those techniques and how easily and effectively can they be integrated within MedComms programmes? Richard Freudenfeld is a digital creative with 22 years experience, specialising in 3D visualisation, animation and motion-graphics and he will lead this session.

    This is the first in our new specialist Lunch and Learn series of events. Attendence will be restricted to a maximum of 20 in total, a maximum of two from any one MedComms agency and a maximum of four freelancers, to ensure we maximise the breadth of experience in the room. The plan is to gain an insight in to the technology by way of real-time demonstrations and to hear about new developments in the field with reference to what is happening outside of MedComms as much as within, and to stimuate open debate about how can we do more to embrace such techniques in MedComms. As a result of the event it is hoped that ideas might be generated for larger open events that explore the topic in more detail.

    This event will be free of charge to attend, thanks to the generosity of the corporate sponsors.

    AFTERNOON BRIEFING - 3 DECEMBER 2014 - MACCLESFIELD

    Procuring MedComms - an insider's view

    In recent years one of the most significant developments for agencies that provide MedComms services has been the increased influence of the Pharma procurement departments on the purchasing and supply process. Procurement specialists are seen by many as simply wanting to slash costs, but is that a fair judgement? Can MedComms services such as medical writing really be reduced to a commodity-based approach? Can it all simply be reduced to a cost per thousand words? Where's the magic? What's the cost of 'excellence'? Where's the 'partnership' we all hear about?

    David Pilley is an independent consultant specialising in procurement of marketing and MedComms services and has long experience working for and consulting with big Pharma, such as AstraZeneca and GSK, and also for service side agencies. At this event David will talk as an insider about what the procurement specialists are aiming to achieve on their side, and specifically how they view MedComms services, and he'll lead a valuable discussion about how to work effectively with procurement departments from pitch through to delivery.

    As usual the meeting will not only serve as a valuable educational opportunity but also allow plenty of time for networking with colleagues from across the MedComms business.

    This event will be free of charge to attend. If you can help support this event please contact Peter Llewellyn on email peter@networkpharma.com
