Clare Beach was elected on to the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO) Board in 2014 and has already benefited hugely from the professional, relevant networking and sharing of knowledge. Clare is very keen to help develop the education calendar for PCO members and in particular independent PCO’s to include topics relevant to challenges regularly faced in association conference organisation.
Clare Beach, PCO and Managing Director of Azura Events Limited is renowned for her hard working enthusiasm, ‘can do’ attitude and attention to detail, and her clients have come to expect nothing else. Her experience in the conference industry has been spent in both commercial as well as not-for-profit organisations. Clare is a list Queen and prides herself on attention to detail.
When not organising conferences Clare enjoys spending time with her young family, cooking and baking for friends and family, running, sailing at her local sailing club, being part of the local swimming club committee, singing in a community choir and being by the sea. In fact, Clare firmly believes that making, sharing and eating cake solves most things in life!
She has a strong career history and prides herself on her flexibility, reliability and adaptability. She focuses on building close relationships and providing an efficient service. Donna enjoys the whole event organisation process from the initial set up of systems at the beginning, assisting delegates, sponsors and exhibitors, ensuring everything is in place for the event and meeting all the delegates on site as well as assisting in the smooth running of the event.
Donna Martin has been working with Azura Events on a freelance basis since 2013.
Outside of her working life, Donna is a busy mother to two daughters and enjoys renovating her period home, looking after a brood of hens and getting outdoors hillwalking as much as possible.
