“B15 engaged attendees from 40+ nations in meaningful discussions around the challenges and opportunities surrounding open, sustainable and equitable scholarly publishing,” says Danielle. “Alex and Beth’s expertise in events and virtual platforms were integral to B15’s success.

I second that! Alex is fabulous (I have not had the pleasure of working with Beth yet). Alex has been the event manager for the UC Benefits Professionals Symposium, a training event for hundreds of UC benefits staff systemwide held each fall, for the past three years. He helped us make the transition from an in-person to a virtual event due to the pandemic. He is detail-oriented, thorough, organized, politically savvy and sensitive to stakeholders’ and participants’ needs. Best of all, he is a pleasure to work with and has an unfailingly positive attitude.
