I would love to be a conference director of the next KCL ASMS conference!
I believe I have skills which will help me to organise and deliver a good conference. Firstly, whilst volunteering with a children’s charity I worked alongside others to help organise sessions. This taught me to communicate, plan well and work with others to ensure the sessions went smoothly. All of these skills would be useful when planning a conference. Additionally, I feel comfortable using zoom as I have helped manage sessions which have been run by other team members on zoom. A skill which I believe will be useful if there were to be a hybrid conference.
Through being the publicity officer of KCL ASMS I helped to publicise the last conference. I believe this will allow me to work better with the publicity team to help market a conference in the future.
I am also currently part of the events team for ‘PaedsTeach’. I am hoping to further develop my skills in this role which I could then use if I were to plan a conference.
Overall, I feel I would be a good conference director as I have experience of being in the KCL ASMS committee and understand different aspects of the society. Furthermore, I am reliable, good at planning and friendly.
