Member’s profile: Emma Duffy
I’ve worked in the event industry for not-for-profit organisations and membership bodies for the last 20 years and am responsible for the strategy and day-to-day operations of the Conference and Programmes function at the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR).
I currently manage a team of five event professionals who deliver a range of PLD activities for radiologists and oncologists across the world. We deliver face to face conferences, workshops and soft skills training and the past year has seen the College’s provision of eLearning activities grow and become a key part of the membership offering. The College regards it as important to continue to develop and enhance this offering to ensure that members and Fellows are provided with the high-quality CPD opportunities they need, as well as ensuring that the RCR is the recognised provider of their requirements.
The annual conference is a key area of responsibility, one which has doubled in size in the past 3 years. Attracting over 800 delegates a year, this 3-day flagship event offers lectures, workshops, social activities, networking and an industry exhibition.
Outside of my role at the College I provide artist liaison services for various festivals and live events.
