I have responsibility for all the marketing, promotional and logistical parts of the business. We run events all over the world and I source conference venues from the US, Europe, Middle and Far East.
I have held a variety of senior level positions in both publishing and conferences and has worked for companies such as Thompson Publishing, Informa plc and IBC, including a period in the US where I marketed US Medical Reports. Prior to this I worked at Silverplatter Information an IT company, one of the first companies to sell information on CD.
