Margo works with LIBER to coordinate the LIBER Annual Conference.
She came on board for the 46th Annual LIBER Conference in Patras, loved the topics, the team and the community and got to stay on for another round. Margo works as an independent conference organiser and programme manager for knowledge driven institutions, notably universities, museums, libraries and their umbrella organisations. These are organisations that through education empower people in their day-to-day lives and that is a cause Margo champions above all.
Amongst others she worked on the DISH and DEN conferences, VPRO’s Conference for the Curious and several Europeana high level meetings. She loves the challenge to develop great programmes with enduring storylines that enable true meetings of minds, hearts and ideas. She draws on 20+ years of programme management and conference management experience against a background of an M.A. in Applied Ethics (Utrecht University) and an M.A. in Arts & Sciences (Maastricht University).
Margo is happily married to Harm, and Boris-the-golden retriever completes the posse. Margo is the proud owner of an oldtimer 2cv and loves to ride her bicycle around the world, notably to places where they make good pickles and wines.
