Five Minutes With… Sharon Ashton, EURORDIS events director

In this episode of Five Minutes With… Sharon Ashton, events manager at EURORDIS, The Voice of Rare Disease Patients in Europe, chats to Holly Patrick about her journey into association event planning, how to cope with stress and the ‘PROLIFIC’ motto she swears by.

“I have several coping mechanisms. First of all, I try to break down the event into small, bite-sized events. It’s also really important talking to others, whether they be colleagues, friends, family or experts in the field. But also doing things that are fun, that really takes your mind off it [stress]. I have two children, so they’re really helpful in distracting me!”
