Goals are there to be achievedI have prepared and delivered a wide range of training courses and been active in mentoring new editorial and client service staff, both within medcomms agencies and as a freelance.

Courses I have delivered formally include:

  • Writing to persuade
  • Writing news reports
  • Email etiquette
  • Pitch and proposal preparation
  • Educating online
  • How to develop learning objectives
  • Preparing interactive online courses

On a more informal basis, I have been able to help a number of medical writers and client service staff to develop and hone their skills through a combination of teaching and mentoring.

Skype is now an invaluable and cost-effective communication tool that makes it possible to remotely mentor staff through a combination of video chat and screensharing.
