video conferencing tools. I believe we were very successful in adapting quickly. But I admit that when the Executive Committee had the opportunity to meet again physically in July, we realised how much we had missed seeing each other face-to-face. Being EADVSecretaryGeneral was a great honour and experience for me. It gave me many opportunities to meet colleagues from all around Europe and indeed the wider world, to network with like-minded experts, interact with other societies and support the professional growth of the next generation of doctors. Above all, it gave me the chance to be an integral part of the many different activities of Europe’s leading dermatological society. I am thankful to all my colleagues from the Executive Committee, the Board and the entire EADV team who were very supportive.

I began my term as Secretary General of EADV following the 2017 Geneva Board meeting . When I look back at this relatively short period, it is quite hard to believe just how many things changed during those four years. EADV has consolidated its operations in one location; a modern office in Lugano that enables all staff to work together and collaborate more effectively. EADV Congresses have advanced leaps and bounds, with ever-more advanced programmes attracting larger and larger audiences, both from within the membership and beyond. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was felt as much by everyone personally, changing the way we live and work, as it was by business and other organisations. And no less by EADV. In a very short timeframe, we learned to communicate and collaborate via Zoom and other
