Event Management

I enjoy organising events, putting people in contact, across different fields, expertise, roles. I see in knowledge transfer an opportunity for everyone to improve, share skills, get to a better outcome.

Here you can find more details on specific events I organised. 

Pictures are usually taken by me in the city where the meeting took place.
