How to manage your society events and make your meetings stand out from the rest

Jonathan will be providing a case study from the British Ecologcal Society, where science conferences and events are right up at the top of what members value most. The flagship event is the annual meeting which has become a physical embodiment of all the Society is about: a welcoming gathering of a global community of ecologists, the latest science, and lots of social and networking events. It leaves people fired up about their research and the new contacts they've made. The event's success is down to the dedication of our in-house events team, working through the year with an academic committee and volunteers, and listening to feedback from the research community.

He’s previously held media relations and communications roles at leading science, research and health organisations: the Francis Crick Institute, Institute for Fiscal Studies, NHS England and Oxford University. Before that he edited a magazine for materials scientists, got a PhD from the University of Leeds for trying to work out how some molecules fitted together in a virus and gained a physics degree from Cambridge largely through perseverance.
