The Association of British Conference Organisers (ABPCO) has revealed the finalists for its 2022 Excellence Awards. Fiona McDonald, Managing Director of Millbrook Medical Conferences, sister company to Millbrook Conferences and Events, is delighted to have been shortlisted for the Best Legacy Award within the ABPCO Excellence Awards.

Fiona is recognised for her tireless dedication to organising first-class medical education through the establishment of Millbrook in 1992, which today serves healthcare professionals worldwide by ensuring the delivery of first-class education through a range of in person, virtual and hybrid conferences. In the last ten years alone, Millbrook has educated over 10,000 medical practitioners and organised 371 conferences!

By providing healthcare professionals in several different disease areas with accessible medical education through a variety of different conferences, Millbrook is ensuring the facilitation of the knowledge they need to make informed, and often lifesaving decisions, as well as contributing to vital medical advancements. The education is vital to the NHS as well as private and international healthcare systems to improve patient outcomes and the standard of healthcare for all, forever.

Speaking of the nomination, Fiona said:

I’m flattered to have been put forward for this prestigious award. When I founded Millbrook Medical Conferences 30 years ago, I was aware of the need for professional, high-quality, accessible and focussed medical education.

Looking back over the years I’m so proud that, along with an incredible team, we have gone some way to filling this gap and moving forward our intention is to continue to provide these hugely worthwhile face-to-face conferences and increase the access globally via streaming or viewing on-demand video footage.

The reason I am so confident of our future challenges is because, even after 30 years, I continue to love coming in to work knowing that I have a fantastic team supporting me.”

BCIS Lifetime Achievement winner Fiona is nominated alongside the ICC Wales team for its work on Protect Duty and ExCeL London which has nominated EASL for the International Liver Congress 2022.
