Planning and evaluation
The Events Officer can provide advice if you are planning an event under the auspices of NDCN. As well as helping you think through planning, our team may be able to provide additional services such as help with registration and publicity.
See this Best Practice Guide to Inclusive Conferences.
Remember that NDCN's core hours are 10.00am-3.00pm. Please try to schedule meetings within this timeframe.
Most departmental events are funded by grants, or covered by delegate fees.
Some events have stands from pharmaceutical companies, publishers etc., who pay for this and therefore contribute to the costs of the event. The Events Officer is in contact with a range of sponsors.
After an event which we have helped to organise, we will produce an evaluation report which can help to improve future events.This will include spending against the budget, a summary of participant feedback if available, as well as a review of the venue and catering.
