Where do I need to start…..ok she’s very precise in the work she delivers, she is always on time, very, very organised, she has a memory like no other, clever. The list is endless!!

What has she done recently to impress you in particular?

We had to cancel some of our larger congresses last year and we turned some of these events in to virtual congresses and she has organised them and ran them like no other.

What would you like to say Mariam?
