Margo de Groot Coenen came on board as an independent program and conference manager to coordinate conference preparations. She works as an independent conference organiser and programme manager for knowledge driven institutions, in particular universities, museums, libraries and their umbrella organisations. These are organisations that empower people in their day-to-day lives through education – a cause Margo champions above all. She draws on 20+ years of programme management and conference management experience, and has both an M.A. in Applied Ethics (Utrecht University) as well as Arts & Sciences (Maastricht University).
