Elizabeth Zubanova
This year, I was part of the EBS Speaker Relations team, assembled by our reigning SRO. I was greatly inspired by the idea-driven dynamic of the society and this year's committee. EBS has a tremendous reach, hosting speaker events of Russian-speaking professionals from a vast array of industries and from across the globe. Through this, EBS has maintained a position that I firmly believe in carrying through to next year - the society is a platform for discussion, and should thus give the floor to any influential individual with a unique, thought-provoking perspective.

My experience leading the organisation of our most recent event with Russian politician, Vladimir Kara-Murza, has given me a taste of the core responsibilities of SRO - contacting the speaker; generating publicity with our amazing media team; handling (Zoom) logistics; hosting the event itself. It has cemented my desire to contribute to the life and growth of the society next year as well as isolating the goals that I would want to set as a member of the committee. These are:

- Throughout the year, host a stellar lineup of speakers from a spread of industries, professions and backgrounds
- Recruit more members for our Speaker Relations Team
- Increased collaboration with Russian-Speaking societies in London, the UK and beyond
- Play an instrumental role in the organisation of a business conference event in the spring term

Look out for more details on how I will achieve this in my upcoming campaign!)
