Jakki Govan says, "I am excited to guide the Program Committee for the PCOA Conference. 

Off the back of the incredibly successful 2023 program, our goal is to curate a program that not only meets the needs of  conference and event managers, co-ordinators, producers, and corporate, government or association in-house event managers and event management students, but also resonates with business owners, destinations, hotels, venues, and conference service providers.

Drawing from the knowledge of the committee and with Clockwise Consulting's expertise and commitment, we are confident in delivering an exceptional conference experience for all attendees."
