Mark Brakel is the Head Organiser of Amsterdam2012. He graduated in June with a BA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) from the University of Oxford and has been working full-time on the 71st International Session since. His previous experience comes from his involvement with Oxford Student Publications Limited (OSPL), the holding company for the famous student newspaper Cherwell at Oxford, and from the time he was involved with the Dutch national school student union (LAKS).

Mark started organising the session in November 2010 with a small group of other volunteers, from which the current organisational team has evolved. You may contact him through the details below, but do first consider whether another member of the organising team may be better placed to help you.
