EMWA Conference: Florence 2015

The EMWA autumn conference last month was as excellent as always, with a mix of workshops, networking events, forums and presentations. Not forgetting the social activities. This conference I attended two workshops: one to brush up my knowledge on writing risk management plans (RMPs) and the other to pick up some helpful tips on how to critically appraise medical literature. Both were  very informative. The Freelance Business Forum, which I co-organise with Alistair and Sam, was well attended. This was the second FBF at which we have had a 'drinks and nibbles' networking session where experienced freelancers answer questions posed by their less experienced colleagues.

I love these conferences - the organisers, workshop leaders and EMWA committee members are friendly and welcoming. At each coffee break and over lunch, you always feel you can join a group and conversation. And, you always meet new colleagues, catch up with EMWA friends and learn something.
After enjoying the walking tour organised by EMWA in Budapest, I decided to join the guided tour around Florence - Henry, my partner, came along too. It was another opportunity to meet more medical writers and their partners, as well as learn some interesting facts about this fascinating city and its cultural heritage. 
Not to mention tasting the delicious ice cream!
I am already looking forward to the next conference which will be held in Dublin in May 2015.
