One of the newest members of the team, Rachel joined CW in June 2017 as Senior Events and Conference Manager. Working alongside industry experts aka Special Interest Group (SIG) champions, Rachel manages a handful of SIG events including Healthcare, User Experience and Virtual Networks. She coordinated the inaugural Inclusive Innovation Conference in September 2017 which forms part of CW’s Diversity & Inclusion year-long initiative and also event managed the CW Technology & Engineering Conference (CWTEC) held annually at the Cambridge Computer Labs. If there’s a teleconference planned…it’s a sure thing Rachel will be involved in one way or another!
Rachel has over 7 years’ experience running conferences and events – she’s an event professional through and through. Previous roles include event management for a not-for-profit organisation dealing with career and skills development, working for a press monitoring company and, ‘back in the day’ she worked at a very rock-n-roll recording & rehearsal studio.
Rachels’ diary outside of work is equally as busy; she’s a mum to twin girls! When she’s not doing the school run (and every activity under the sun) you’ll find her swimming, watching a Sci-Fi film, head in a book or supporting her beloved football team, Arsenal.
