Eleanor Burquest

Events Manager

Eleanor joined the Major Projects Association in 2015, fresh from completing her degree in Geography at University of Portsmouth. She is responsible for the full programme of events; booking and liaising with venues, sourcing event chairs and speakers and putting together event programmes and resources. She can often be found chasing speakers for their event materials! Eleanor also looks after our Programme Committee [include link to PC page here?], chaired by Nirmal Kotecha, who meet 4 times a year to review past events and discuss content for the forthcoming programme. 
Outside of work, Eleanor is a very keen baker and regularly takes commissions for wedding and celebration cakes. She also enjoys socialising with friends and family, especially if there’s a gin and tonic or two involved, as various home crafts!
