"The 25th World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP) Conference held in Liverpool UK was an outstanding success with over 700 delegates attending. The conference ran seamlessly, not just through the actual week In Liverpool but for the preceding 2 years through the organisation and preparation of the event. While many people were responsible and involved in the conference preparation, one was accountable for the delivery of the total event and that was Anne Doherty of Happening. Her friendliness, organisational skills and importantly experience in delivering successful international conferences was reflected in our Liverpool experience. Two words come to mind to describe Anne and they are efficiency and professionalism. Anne is a credit to her profession. We were fortunate and privileged to have her steering our event. I recommend Happening and particularly Anne Doherty to anyone planning a future international conference."
