Head of Conference Production

Jane Mckenzie
  • About Me

Jane's eclectic career includes sectors such as media sales, civil service, the police service, NHS and banking at varying levels of seniority. With 11 years of Conference Production, on both a freelance and employed basis, she has been responsible for the research, content and delivery of the plenary programmes for over 140+ public sector conferences and is well connected to key stakeholders.  Her experience of having worked across the public sector is advantageous in understanding what drives the sector and the challenges it faces. Jane's role is to expand Open Forum Events' conference portfolio with relevant and insightful pan public sector conference programmes, focusing on delegate needs. Lover of all sports, with a particular interest in tennis, as both player and qualified coach. At home, grown up children have been replaced by pets, who are almost as demanding but less 'back chat'.
