Member’s profile: Jo Powel
Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. But you don’t have to go through it alone. The Macmillan team is with you every step of the way, from the nurses and therapists helping you through treatment to the campaigners improving cancer care. Together, we are Macmillan Cancer Support.
I lead the Strategic Events function at Macmillan responsible for delivering a programme of internal and external events to engage, inspire and influence our stakeholders including health and social care professionals, volunteers, people affected by cancer and staff as well as leaders in government and healthcare. Our events range from conferences, awards, exhibitions, roundtable discussions and involvement in a whole range of externally organised events whether that is presenting or hosting stands at exhibitions. I also produce events management guidance that is used across the organisation to ensure that best practice is followed.
