I’m the Event Manager for the International Forum and am responsible for the logistics, management and delivery of the event.
I joined the BMJ in 2009 and have worked on 11 International Forums so far. I work closely with venues, our suppliers and the teams on-site to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible and am usually found behind the scenes problem-solving.
Although we were all very disappointed that we were unable to hold the event in Copenhagen in April, I am really excited to be planning our first Virtual Forum and hope that it is a new way to bring people together during this difficult time.
I’m Kyle Rolph and I am the conference producer for the International Forum in Europe. My role is to work closely with our audience, speakers, International and Host Country Programme Advisory committees to create an exciting and relevant programme for the event. I joined the BMJ in 2012, and this will be my 6th International Forum.
Head of Events
I’ve worked at the BMJ for nine years, supporting the team from the strategy to the delivery and working closely with our partners and supporters.
Although I’ll be on maternity leave for Copenhagen 2020, I look forward to watching online and hearing all about the fantastic networking and programme initiatives the planning team has in store for delegates this year!
Head of Events (Maternity Cover)
I have been covering Holly’s role as Head of Events since March 2020. I worked with the team in 2014/2015, supporting the growth and development of the International Forum in Europe and the launch of the International Forum Asia.
I have enjoyed meeting former and new contacts on these very special events and helping the team plan to deliver a great experience for delegates, partners, sponsors and exhibitors. It is a challenging time, while we work out how to continue to deliver content, partnerships and networking, while keeping our delegates and clients safe in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the first instance, this involves working to deliver virtual events, while planning for what these events will look like in a post COVID world. I look forward to connecting with you in the near future, either virtually or face-to-face.
Manager, Strategic Partnerships & Alliances
I work closely with our Partners and supporters ensuring that they and their colleagues find International Forum a fulfilling, valuable (and fun!) event.
Copenhagen is our first fully virtual event which is exciting and brings many opportunities. I am looking forward to involving new international colleagues, seeing how delegates engage with the event and each other, and how I can support them in making long lasting connections.
Associate Marketing Manager, Events
I am the marketing lead for the International Forum and I have been at BMJ for over eight years.
My first International Forum was in London, back in 2013, but the first one I actually worked on was in Paris the following year. I lead on all marketing, from our communications and website to producing the event guide.
This year, things have turned very different from expected. Despite the sadness of not seeing familiar and new faces in Copenhagen, it is also exciting to still be able to present this International Forum. The virtual world offers so many possibilities and we all look forward to bringing those to you.
Head of Sponsorship
I manage the commercial relationships at the Forum. My main role is to ensure that the BMJ expands its sponsorship portfolio: working with clients closely to fulfill their sales and marketing objectives, including content creation, brand awareness, facilitating connections and thought leadership sessions.
This year will be the first virtual International Forum (and also my first European Forum) and I am looking forward to supporting our sponsors and exhibitors in a new and exciting format.
Event Sales Manager
I joined the BMJ two years ago as Event Sales Manager, responsible for managing commercial revenue delivery on the Forum portfolio of events. My main role is to drive sponsorship and exhibition sales revenues across all our Forums.
At our new and exciting Copenhagen Forum, I am hoping to prove ROI to all our sponsors and exhibitors by showing them how to achieve their marketing goals in our virtual venue. I want to ensure that they all have a great virtual experience, where they can show off their products, warm up leads, and deepen relationships with clients.
Sponsorship & Exhibition Marketing Manager
I work collaboratively across our sales and events team to help bring together our sponsors, exhibitors and advertisers to help influence and connect with healthcare professionals in a digital environment. I’ve been working at BMJ for 19 years, and I ‘ve had the pleasure to attend many of our fantastic events. I have met many delegates and participants from all over the world, heard some inspiring keynotes and seen first-hand the amazing work achieved at ground level in hospitals with improving patient experience and outcomes.
I’m Ruby and I have been with BMJ Events for around two years. I’m the go-to person for all things exhibition and sponsorship related to all of our events in the portfolio. I’m really looking forward to working with all of our exhibitors and sponsors for our first-ever virtual exhibition!
Senior Event Coordinator
I have been working at the BMJ for over five years and manage the International Forum in the Asia Pacific region. I work closely with venues, accommodation agencies and various suppliers to deliver the Forum in different countries.
At the upcoming virtual International Forum, I will be managing the posters. This will involve liaising with all presenters, handling any queries and facilitating our virtual poster stage.
I’m looking forward to seeing the International Forum take a different form. There are endless opportunities with hosting a virtual event and I’m confident that we will deliver an exceptional experience for all attendees!
I’ve been at the BMJ for two years, working on multiple events across the BMJ’s portfolio.
This year, I’ll be managing registration for the Copenhagen Forum, which involves responding to attendees’ queries and managing the online registration journey for our new virtual event.
Although we won’t be enjoying the beautiful city of Copenhagen this year, I’m looking forward to the new challenges that a virtual event this size brings, and working with a great team to deliver the first online International Forum.
I am Mark Lenner, working for the BMJ as an Events Assistant for the last nine months. In this time I have gained experience in numerous flagship events such as BMJ Live and Leaders in Healthcare.
This will be my very first International Forum so I am rather excited to be a part of it.
I’ve been the BMJ Events Conference Producer for the last three years, having joined BMJ from a background in professional learning and education.
I work closely with our expert advisory committees and speakers to design engaging programmes for our diverse audience in the Asia Pacific region.
I’m excited to hear cutting edge content from across the globe in this exciting new virtual environment.
Senior Event Coordinator
I joined BMJ four years ago and, in that time, have been lucky enough to travel around Europe and the Asia Pacific to work at previous International Forums.
Although this year has seen a big shake up of our scheduled events and usual way of delivering them, I look forward to supporting the team in the virtual sphere for the International Forum, Copenhagen.
I’m Sophie and I joined the BMJ in January 2020 as a Marketing Executive. I support the team in meeting its objectives by implementing effective, multi-channel marketing campaigns.
This will be my first International Forum on Quality and Safety in Healthcare and I am looking forward to attending the virtual event and supporting the team.
