Our Didsbury team made the most of festivities at Towers Business Park last week. A Christmas-inspired tepee stood proudly in the Piazza and was host to a Christmas wreath-making workshop that a few of the team took part in.

Can you guess which member of our team made the winning wreath and received a whopping £100 prize? Tweet us @spirit_med and all will be revealed!

For others it was simply a chance to embrace the Christmas spirit and enjoy carol singers, mulled wine and hot chocolate!

Today we are supporting Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day. Teams across both sites, as well as our remote workers, have all made an effort in support of this worthy cause – including our most historically Christmas-jumper resistant team members and Pedro the guinea pig!

Our team put together a superb Halloween fundraiser yesterday to raise money for the Genie Family Centre, a registered charity that provides support for deaf people and their families. Transforming our office … and our colleagues too! … we partook in a delicious bake sale, pumpkin carving and ‘guess how many spooky sweets in the jar’ competitions, to show our support for this worthy charity who have provided amazing support to our colleague and friend, Holly.

 

A fantastic day was had by all, and we managed to raise an impressive £365! Well done team 😊

We had a fantastic Company Meeting last week at the Great John Street Hotel in Manchester!

Pioneers in Science connected to Manchester was the theme behind our teams (Lovell, Dalton, Rutherford, Kilburn) which set the scene for a day centred around innovative thinking to address common challenges in the Medical Communications environment.

With several new starters in our midst as we continue to grow, we also capitalised on a prime opportunity to share insight and opinion to help shape the future of Spirit.

Not satisfied with just the fantastic outputs of this extremely productive meeting, we then faced the ultimate challenge… testing our skill, physical and mental abilities in the Crystal Maze – ‘Start the fans please!’

Well done to Team Dalton who came top of the leader board!, although all teams partook in a well-deserved celebratory drinkie…or three 😊

Our Client Services and Medical & Scientific Services teams are extremely busy co-ordinating a myriad of activities around three major congresses this month. Through fantastic teamwork, we have successfully navigated …

– The challenge of obtaining over the summer holidays all author approvals required to ensure finalisation of oral presentations, print sign off and shipping of multiple postersincluding a winner of the Best Poster Award at ESMO!

– Working closely with authors and journal publishers to achieve hot-off-the-press data release in parallel with the relevant congress

– Co-ordination of a series of webinars delivering up-to-date data and clinical developments, broadcast simultaneously in multiple languages, with live question and answer functionality

– Juggling of multiple components to deliver cutting-edge, innovatively-themed symposia employing novel formats and the latest technologies

– Delivery of highly interactive content and high-spec animations for exhibition booths

– And, of course… smooth handling of all unforeseen circumstance, such as the need for last-minute filming of keynote speakers who can’t make it to the congress at the final hour.

In between all this, we are still finding time to fit in holidays of our own, and participate in bake offs and crowd surfing!

Our team were given a fantastic opportunity to visit new residents of Towers Business Park, where our Manchester office is located – our two new hives of bees! Dressed to impress, we attended a very interesting  talk on bees (thanks John) before we went to see the beehives on site and handle the hive frames; we were even able to spot the queen.

A great experience. We are all very much looking forward to some delicious Towers honey in a years’ time!

Helping you navigate a predatory environment

Predatory publishing remains a ‘hot topic’, as highlighted by Discover magazine’s recent ‘Star Wars sting’.

Predatory publishing remains a ‘hot topic’, as highlighted by Discover magazine’s recent ‘Star Wars sting’. Authors are under increasing pressure to ensure their work is submitted to a credible journal.

At Spirit, our team of experienced scientific leads is well versed in overcoming publishing challenges, so much so that a long-standing client recently invited us to present at a meeting for physicians involved in the treatment of opioid disorders.

Tony (Senior Scientific Director) and Asif (Managing Director) hosted an interactive workshop on Writing addiction case reports for peer-reviewed publications. Case study development best practice, common barriers to publication, and how these can be overcome in a predatory environment were core themes addressed throughout this very well received session.

For more information on case report best practice, or to explore other ways we can forge mutually beneficial partnerships, please feel free to visit our new look website www.spirit.global.
