The EuroSTAR Conference Team

EuroSTAR TeamThe EuroSTAR Conference takes place once a year and has grown to become the leading event for Software Testers in Europe. There is an incredible amount of work that takes place behind the scenes to ensure that the EuroSTAR Conferences maintain the highest standards and offers our community and delegates the very best of experiences. Find out a bit more about the team below……

Nicola McCombie

nicola_100x145Hi, I joined the EuroSTAR Conference team as Conference Manager in 2011. My role is widely varied on a day to day basis, which is great – there is rarely a dull moment (proof reading copy being the lesser of excitements, venue visits, online marketing and meeting the EuroSTAR Community being the greater!)…and time certainly flies quicker than it should!
I hail from a small town in the north east of Scotland (up near Loch Ness). Having globe trotted for a few years, I settled in Dublin for 7 years before the lure of the West took hold and I’m delighted to now call Galway home. I’m really looking forward to the year ahead, we have some exciting new developments in store, a great team and the conference in Dublin will be a big highlight. We hope you all enjoy attending as much as we enjoy organising it! Until then, keep in touch with us and we’ll keep you posted!

Siobhan Hunt

siobhan_100x144I joined the EuroSTAR Conference team in 2007 and haven’t looked back since. I’m originally from County Roscommon (Irish midlands) but Galway has been my home for so long now that I’m truly integrated. I have a family of four – two reared, two still coming up through the ranks. Love to golf when I get some free time – blows away the cobwebs, and to relax a little with some light reading and music.

I am responsible for the administration duties in the office. I enjoy working with my colleagues and liaising with the testing community throughout the year. I also interact with the programme chair and committee, programme speakers and of course answering our delegates queries. I also am responsible for delegate and group registrations – and hopefully help make your experience at the EuroSTAR Conference user friendly.

joan_100x145Hi all, I joined EuroSTAR Conferences as the Company Accountant in 2007. I work part time with a fantastic team, get to travel and meet loads of lovely people – it’s a great combination.

I was born in America, grew up in Galway, Ireland, then immigrated and worked as an accountant in California for twelve years. Then, ten years ago, the hubby and I took the plunge and moved back to Ireland and happy to say haven’t looked back since. Galway is a great place to raise our two girls.
Don’t get much free time but when I do like nothing more than catching up with friends over a few drinks on Quay Street. Add a sunny evening to that equation and you get pure BLISS!

daragh_100x137 (1)Hi, I am an Online Marketing Executive with EuroSTAR Conferences as of November 2012. I am responsible for all the online activities such as eBooks, Webinars, e-mail campaigns, newsletters etc.
I was born in Limerick and I love rugby – nothing like the atmosphere of a Heineken Cup match in Thomond Park! Another passion of mine is travel and I have been fortunate enough to have travelled throughout Europe, the US and Canada. I love working with the EuroSTAR Community and I hope to see you at this year’s conference in Dublin.
