Shannon de Groot Born in Ontario, Canada, my character, and drive were shaped growing up as an athlete and National level swimmer. I began my career in lifeguarding and instructional watersports then moved to Victoria, BC where I graduated college and transitioned back to Ontario to attend University in Waterloo. I entered the entertainment industry focused on regional account management, then transitioned to national conference management in education, while pursuing firefighting part-time before moving overseas to Europe. Based out of The Netherlands for 13 years, my expertise in executive operations and conference management broadened globally, leading large international conferences for associations and non-profit organizations worldwide in both international education and science industries. I consider myself a lifelong learner and am passionate about leadership and international conference management, building on certifications in Leadership Profile Mentoring, Leadership Essentials, Adult Education Facilitation, Executive Coaching and Project Management Fundamentals. My practical experience, education and certified trainings have enhanced my professional results and enabled a strong network around the world. I am currently the Director of Operations with ICS (International Conference Services) and am excited to be part of the IAPCO WebEdge Module Training. I hope my experience and shared information will support others navigating through the ever-changing realities of our industry in the present day and look forward to any future connections resulting from this shared learning.
