As a Meetings Organiser at the Company of Biologists I oversee a number of UK and international events. I am experienced in organising a range of scientific events from workshops to large annual conferences.
I joined the Company of Biologists in May 2019 as a Meetings Organisers to expand the existing events team. The Company of Biologists is a not-for-profit publishing organisation dedicated to supporting and inspiring the biological community. Part of its remit is to deliver a number of workshops and global conferences throughout the year. These have proved to be very successful over the last ten years leading to an increase in the number of events held and the number of delegates attending. As one of two Meetings Organisers my role is to oversee events from beginning to end through venue finding, contracting with suppliers, liaising with speakers and delegates, to organising delegate packs and delivery of the event.
My previous events experience was in organising a larger annual scientific conference for a UK medical research charity. The Conference more than doubled in size in the time that I was overseeing it and was one of the key meetings for the UK based research community.
