Company: RCN Events | Royal College of Nursing
Position: Conference & Events Organiser
20 Cavendish Square
I joined the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) in 2014 as a Conference and Events Organiser within the RCN Events team.
The RCN is a membership organisation of more than 435,000 registered nurses, midwives, health care assistants and nursing students. The RCN is both a professional body, carrying out work on nursing standards, education and practice, and a trade union.
RCN Events deliver 60-70 national and international events per year including our flagship annual Congress for 5000 delegates over 5 days, conferences, workshops, dinners, awards ceremonies and exhibitions.
I am responsible for delivering a portfolio of professional events to a high standard from overseeing the programme development, managing the speakers, finances, logistics, creating copy and marketing the event, through to the onsite production.
In addition, I develop and organise the Health and Wellbeing fringe programme at RCN Congress each year. I am also a health advocate for RCN staff, organising wellbeing events within the organisation.
I have over 10 years’ experience of working in events and have previously worked in the charity, sporting and promotional event sectors.
