Concise were thrilled to sponsor the 6th Annual event of ‘A Day in the Life of #Med Comms 2017’.
For one day only, medcomm specialists from all around the globe shared, via Twitter, what was happening in their part of world. The day saw 1,009 tweets from 299 contributors reaching 203,246 accounts and clocking up 936,381 impressions! A noticeable increase from last year’s activities.
Our colleagues across the oceans were busy contributing throughout the day, starting with Hong Kong who shared our first post wishing everyone a ‘Happy #medcomms day’ with the London team following a few hours later with a short animation of a disappearing #medcomms cake! (And very tasty it was too!).
We also ran a very successful #medcomms Quiz during the day with Michele Ukele, from Synergy Vision, announced as the lucky winner of the iPod Touch. Congratulations once again from everyone at Concise.
The day was deemed a huge success and ended with a lovely post from our Client Services Director, Stan Park as the sunset over the Pacific Ocean in San Francisco. Here’s to 2018 #medcomms day!
Observatory raised a T8 signal as Merbok neared Hong Kong this week. Our Asia office was rocked by the first typhoon of 2017. A T8 status brought the city to a halt.
T8 means that gale or storm force winds are expected or blowing in Hong Kong near sea level with a sustained wind speed of 63-117km/h, gusts may exceed 180km/h, with wind conditions expected to persist.
Such an alert caused Hongkongers to flood the transport system as they rushed to leave work heading to the safety of their homes. Businesses closed their doors with supermarkets running out of food in the ensuing panic!
This didn’t stop us, it was business as usual this morning seeing half of the team onsite including one of them who was flying to Toyko!
The 6th annual MedComms Day launched last night, open to anyone and everyone involved in and around MedComms, it aims to capture a representative snapshot of working life in this specialist business. Our team in Hong Kong got us started earlier in today.
The Concise MedComms quiz is live - take a look and see how you get on Medcommsquiz.chime.live
Our Offices are joining in from Hong Kong and Singapore, through Johannesburg and London to New York and finishing off the day at with Sean and Stan in our San Francisco office.
Have fun everybody...
