This support also includes building a solid and sustainable financial basis that allows ESE to grow and fulfill its educational and clinical strategies and projects.

Natalie Dass: Business Development Manager

Natalie Dass: Business Development Manager

After graduating from university, I worked for AstraZeneca, initially as part of the internal conferencing team and then, after a few years, moving to work within the Operations Communications Team, dealing with both internal and external communications. Four years later, in 2011, I took a 12 month career break, after which I worked part time at a Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre heading up their Oxygen Therapy department, alongside some freelance communications work. In 2018 I joined Bioscientifica as Sponsorship and Exhibition Manager, where I began working alongside ESE and its sponsors and corporate partners to deliver the European Congress of Endocrinology, as well as working with multiple other societies to deliver their annual meetings. After four years with Bioscientifica, I am very excited to be moving to focus fully on ESE and its future strategy and partnerships!
