    WHAT'S HAPPENING - [view previous events]

    Please note I am re-positioning MedComms Networking as an over-arching global community and more clearly aligning our various services for MedComms underneath. Step one involves a transition to (note the .com) as the central resource. This move, though, has a whole host of consequences and it will take a while to work through them all and make everything tidy.

    I'll keep you informed along the way and hopefully we'll all come out stronger for it. I'm always happy to chat and all feedback is welcome, so give me a shout anytime or please post your thoughts to the MedComms Networking Linkedin group for discussion.

    Scroll down to see details of activities that are planned for the coming months.

    Meantime, you can see reports of all the previous meetings here.

    Now we have a good number of corporate Sponsors (more are welcome!) we will convene our first meeting to discuss the ways in which MedComms is evolving and the challenges ahead.

    Freelancers' workshop: Making a success of freelancing in MedComms

    Venue: Oxford, UK
    Date: 19 March 2015

    This is our 5th such workshop for MedComms freelancers. Anyone who provides freelance services in MedComms is welcome, whether your services are medical writing, editing, proof reading, account management, publications management, design and production, multimedia direction, strategic counsel and so on.

    These workshops are aimed at helping you maximise the opportunity for your business through education and networking. Share your experiences with other freelancers and embrace the opportunity to learn from each other, and also meet the freelance commissioners from the agencies.

    This event will focus on marketing your services and specifically will review social media and digital opportunities to maximise your business effectiveness, whoever as always the discussion will range far and wide.

    Note this next event is free of charge and in part is intended to serve as an opportunity to discuss future development of this initiative.


    Lunch and Learn: Delivering on the promise of Digital

    Venue: Oxford Science Park, UK
    Date: 23 April 2015

    This will be the second in our Lunch and Learn series of events, the objective being for a small group to meet informally for open discussion around a specialist topic of interest, and along the way to stimulate ideas for larger open events. We're going to run a series of these workshops focusing on embracing digital solutions with an emphasis on practical case histories to explore how intelligent commissioning and delivery of projects can be cost-effective and successfully meet intended communications needs. The plan is for each workshop to inform the agenda of the next one, as we explore specific solutions and technologies that might have a place in MedComms programmes.

    Each workshop will be led by James Harper, Founding Director of 28b, the only digital development company working exclusively with pharmaceutical communications and marketing agencies to help them win, develop, implement and manage their clients digital business.

    Please note the plan is for a maximum 20 participants and we will restrict attendance to a maximum of two individuals per agency.

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