We’re strengthening our team with two new appointments to our sales and marketing department this month. These appointments will enhance the university’s strengths and help to further position the university as a central asset to the city.

The conference facilities have welcomed back Emma Broadhurst, who has re-joined the business in her new role as Business Development Officer, following her previous role in Business Development at Leeds City Council’s conference bureau, ConferenceLeeds. Emma’s role will be in the delivery of a proactive sales strategy and supporting University academics in attracting sizeable national and international association conference business to the university, strengthening the university’s position as a world class conference and events destination. Emma’s experience within the business, as well as her in-depth knowledge of the industry, will enable MEETinLEEDS to harness and enhance the strengths of the university through her growing knowledge and engagement, particularly during the current busy conferencing period.

Also strengthening the team is 25-year-old Hannah Morris, who has joined the MEETinLEEDS team as Digital Marketing Executive. Previously working as Digital Content Officer at the Royal Armouries Museum, as well as graduating from the University of Leeds with a degree in Cultural History, Hannah holds a wealth of knowledge within the conferencing and events industry. As Digital Marketing Executive, Hannah will be involved in creating content, managing social media channels and delivering email marketing communications, as well as working on design, photography and videography.

Harriet Boatwright, Sales and Marketing Manager at MEEDSinLEEDS, commented: “We’re absolutely delighted to be welcoming Hannah to the team and Emma back the team! Harnessing the universities strengths, their appointments will help to further profile the stature of the university and we look forward to seeing them progress and excel individually and as part of the team.”
