A big believer in the power of conferences, Kathleen loves everything about our industry - when people meet and share ideas, amazing things happen.
Kathleen got her dream job in 2014 when she was appointed to the position of Director of Conferences Sales, at the Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow. Her earlier career working for Glasgow Tourist Board, the University of Glasgow, and VisitBritain in The Netherlands, provided a great foundation for leading the conference sales team at the venue. It’s been a brilliant journey so far.
Having been part of the growth and development of Glasgow as a destination for tourism and for business events over the past 30 years, Kathleen is passionate about seeing her hometown continue to flourish long into the future. The Scottish Event Campus has been central to the city’s success story, which brings into sharp focus the importance of venues.
This year the Scottish Event Campus is the principal venue for the UN Climate Change Conference, COP26. At this pivotal time for the future of our planet, COP26 shines a light on the power of conferences.
