Marie’s main role is to manage the annual Conference, whilst also assisting the SIGs with their events programme, and managing other events the BERA office runs.
Working as a Project Manager at the PCO in her previous role, Marie managed a full portfolio of international congresses, conferences and courses. Her previous experience at another membership organisation lends itself more closely to BERA – working with members to run events, increase membership and promote the organisation to reach its strategic objectives.
Working for both a commercial company and charity has provided her with invaluable insights into how events are run extremely professionally, whilst understanding the limitations and budgetary constraints of working with a charity.
Marie is a passionate movie fan and collector. She has also been learning British Sign Language, and has successfully completed Level 1.
