Member’s profile: Hannah Armstrong
The Royal Town Planning Institute champions the power of planning in creating prosperous places and vibrant communities. We represent over 25,000 members worldwide, supporting them throughout their careers. We shape planning policy, raise professional standards, deliver a wide portfolio of training and events and are the only body in the UK to confer Chartered status to planners, the highest professional qualification.
I am the Events Business Manager and joined the organisation in May 2016. My initial role was to oversea the exiting of our contract with a third party events management agency, and bring all events delivery in-house. Since then I have worked to expand our events offering, including delivering an event with Theresa May as the keynote speaker, and ensure we are providing a professional and relevant service for our members. Moving forward I would like to aim to increase delegate numbers and improve our sponsorship offering for those who support our events.
