With almost 20 years’ experience in event agencies I am looking forward to working with the team and giving a fresh approach to the finance department. Conference Care has an impressive portfolio of clients, an amazing knowledgeable team, and has developed cutting edge technology, I can’t wait to start working with them and develop effective accounting solutions.”
