Welcome to our new Event Manager: Laura Grau

Please join me in giving a warm welcome to OWASP's new Event Manager, Laura Grau!  And, Laura, we are thrilled to have you on board!

About Laura:

Laura Grau worked as an Events Manager for the past 6 years in an international research center in Barcelona. During these years she gained a solid background organizing a wide variety of events from seminars, workshops, outreach activities, open house events to international conferences. Her responsibilities in each project ranged from the conceptual to the closure phase.  Laura has a Bachelor of Arts in Business Tourism from ESADE Business School and a Master's degree in Project Management from the University of Barcelona. She is a native Spanish speaker, and also speaks English, basic French and Italian. In her spare time she can be found biking around San Francisco, watching foreign films, tasting new delicacies, or practicing yoga.

Laura is committed to organizing OWASP AppSec conferences all over the world and making them the best gathering spot to discuss the state of the art in application security.

I think Laura has a wealth of experience with event management as well as proven track record working with people to achieve successful events that will help take our global, regional, and local conferences to the next level.  Additionally, I see Laura as a great addition to the team as we are trying to accommodate a global population - we will all surely have things to learn from her!

Laura will be starting tomorrow - Monday (July 29) and working to quickly get up to speed with the global events we have in the works as well as the OWASP processes and workflows (she will certainly be creating new ones of her own as well).
