YOUR TEAM

Project Management Team

Agnieszka Skalska
As the Board Agent and Conference PM, I manage the Covid-19 situation and its influence on the conference, its business case and profit. With over 11 years experience in successful global business transformations, project and program management, my proven versatility and can-do attitude enable me to always deliver. I'm not all work though, my passion is kitesurfing, the perfect summer activity!

Martin Härri
I, as a self-confessed project management enthusiast, co-manage the organisation of the conference together with Aga. Day to day, I am a senior project officer at SIX, which brings me great satisfaction when I see projects brought to a high level of project management maturity. Fun fact: I was once an "Elite Yelper" having published over 300 reviews, mostly on my specialist subject, coffee bars.

Speakers Team

Salina Santiago
Leading this stream, we look to find great speakers for the conference and being passionate about my projects, I am sure we have put together the best lineup. As PMO Director at Zurich Insurance, I get to enjoy collaborating with the diverse project partitioners throughout the whole company. But as much as I love the people I work with, I am addicted to animal rescue videos - I'd foster them all if I could!
Salina Santiago
Fredy Wehrli
I evaluate, engage and host the speakers organised for this conference. At Swiss and Lufthansa, I identify and ensure PM and BA talents evolve to their best, employing my patience and listening skills. Almost an "old timer" like Martin, I've been an active Chapter Volunteer since 2003 with one of my biggest contributions founding and developing the PMI PM Master Class.

Ananya Alexander
I'm suporting the team by reaching out to prospective Speakers and aligning our expectations with their knowledge areas. My history as a Project Manager across different sectors in several different countries, and being "people person", allows me to easily communicate with the Speakers.I really do enjoy collaborating with people from varied cultures and backgrounds, which I get to do a lot in this team.

Marketing Team

Agnieszka Skalska
Me again! I am also the Marketing Lead for this conference, definining the marketing strategy and coaching the sub team. My creative side and passion for photography has me heavily involved with promoting the conference, something which I enjoy thoroughly. My growth mindset and collaboration with this team is sure to deliver a successful conference, making it look good in the process.

Mariella Rendon
Although I am by day an Operations Project Manager, I handle the Social Media and Photography for the conference as a Marketing Specialist. I am a creative person that enjoys reading, dancing and, when it's allowed, travelling. I'm also quite fearless, not being afraid to be thrown in at the deep end - the day I moved to Switzerland was the first time I set foot here!

Danh Nguyen
Although I look after the graphics and website side of the conference, I am professionally a Mechanical Engineer and Project Manager in the mining and minerals industry. I enjoy working with people towards a common goal trusting in the team to deliver, preferring to take on the role of “enabler” as opposed to a traditional hierarchical “manager”. To wind down, I enjoy playing badminton or watching Formula 1.

Ananya Alexander
I additionally assist the marketing team by collating lessons learned from previous Conferences whilst also promoting the upcoming one. In addition to volunteering here, I'm also currently involved in a non-profit organisation supporting the integration of international residents through their volunteer work. Aside from all this volunteering, I do enjoy hiking, reading books and exploring new destinations.

Participants Team

Michèle Bapst
For the conference I am looking after the participants. Being highly service oriented fits also my role as a Project Manager Office working with all kinds of experts from different areas. Although often a challenge at the beginning, I take pleasure in a good working, harmonized team. When possible, I enjoy being in nature, especially in my cabin in the mountains!
Michèle Bapst
Lauro Muff
I am supporting Michèle to manage all the incoming registrations. Alongside working as a Project Manager at SIX I really enjoy doing any kind of sport, especially tennis and hockey. Looking forward to meeting lots of interesting people during the conference!

Networking Team

Nora Penn
As a person that loves to communicate and bring people together, I create networking opportunities for all participants. Alongside working as a Talent Acquisition Specialist at SIX, I am finishing my Master’s at UZH. I'm most passionate about ice hockey in which I had my biggest achievement so far: I was the University of Santa Barbara club team goalie in the ACHA Men’s Division II in 16/17.
Nora Penn
Christian Hahn
Specialising in scouting and working with young talent, I'm supporting Nora and Jenny in the networking team to ensure all conference participants can get the best experience possible on the day. I enjoy mentoring so much that my next mentoring project will be of the canine persuasion, raising a puppy as a therapy dog. But maybe I enjoy my distillery more...
Christian Hahn
Jennifer Chang
I help ensure our visitors can maximise value through a great networking experience at the conference. Normally, I'm a Senior Project Manager at SIX Financial Information which utilises my strengths of being able to encourage teams to collaborate and achieve a successful outcome. My love for photography has led me, with two colleagues, to found the SIX Photo Club which currently stands at 55 members.
