“Our intern was instrumental in organising the conference, handling a large amount of correspondence with participants, putting the programme together and ensuring the smooth running of the hybrid event throughout the day. She showed exceptional organisational skills and kept calm under pressure.

The student and I met regularly to discuss tasks that needed to be completed. She was very efficient and self-reliant, but checked in with me whenever an important decision needed to be made. She worked very effectively on the day of the conference, helping the day to run smoothly. She worked in Spanish most of the time and demonstrated her strong linguistic skills.”
