Member’s profile: Therese Dolan
Diabetes UK is the leading UK diabetes charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns alongside people with or at risk of diabetes. Together with our network of over 10,000 professional members and diabetes specialists, we share knowledge to improve the lives of people with diabetes.
As Events Senior Manager, I head up the Events Team at Diabetes UK. My team deliver our flagship event, the Diabetes UK Professional Conference, which attracts approximately 3000 delegates annually, plus a full programme of support events aimed at Children, Young People and their families. In addition, we support the charity to deliver our annual Staff Conference, a range of regional professional conferences, volunteer conferences, awards ceremonies and local events.
I have been involved in the association conference and events industry for almost ten years, mainly working for PCOs in Dublin and London before moving in-house to Diabetes UK in May 2014.
