Director of Stakeholder Engagement
Barbara is in charge of orchestrating SPC’s spring flagship event: SPC Impact and the member event: SPC Advance as well as SPC’s new event platforms: SPC Engage (in 2019 in Minneapolis and London, in 2020 in Montreal and Europe). She also coordinates engagement and collaboration projects with other organizations and stakeholders and partnerships and participation at external events. Before joining GreenBlue, she was Conference Director with Smithers Pira/Pira International. During her time there, she was responsible for over sixty events in sustainability and emerging tech fields held in North America, Europe and Latin America. Prior to that, she worked as Director of Student Affairs and the Leadership Program at Universidad Anahuac in Merida, Yucatan. She holds a Juris Doctor and an LLM in Business Law from Universidad Anahuac in Mexico City. When she is not planning events, Barbara spends her time practicing piano, flute, trumpet and cello with her three young children through the Suzuki method and discovering great food around her adopted home state of Wisconsin, perpetually waiting for summer to arrive.
