Additionally, our invited guests from other universities as well as our YCRI team at Yale recognizes her hard work and impeccable coordination.
Two participants from the Berlin conference wrote the following reviews of Megan's efforts to me:
"Megan went above and beyond to make my trip and conference experience as hassle free as can be. Her communications were clear, and reminders about all itinerary and reimbursement matters extremely useful. She was a pleasure to work with."
"Megan has been a dream coordinator from start to finish. Patient in the face of the most pedantic and fussy enquiries, she has remained indefatigably efficient, upbeat and reassuring throughout."
Other YC&E staff stepped in seamlessly to take care of things on-site. Kelly Vailette and Colleen Murphy were fantastic on-site coordinators. Kelly went above and beyond, whenever anything came up (a change in schedule; an edit for the catering order) Kelly immediately took care of everything.
I cannot emphasize enough how fantastic the staff are (so great at their jobs!) and how easy they are to work with, making our experience at the conference much easier. Thank you again for your fantastic team!
