Down under. ISES Sydney, the association for the special events industry welcomed new president to the chapter at a recent event.
Paul Davison, Manager Centre Technical Production and Design, Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre has taken over the role from Jeremy Garling, Director, Fourth Wall Events after a two year reign.
The role sees Mr Davison lead the team to provide an exceptional calendar of educational events over the course of the year and deliver sound return on investment for the members.
“My vision for ISES Sydney is to ensure we provide great educational and networking experiences and information for the dedicated special events industry.
“The new board of dedicated volunteers come from a broad spectrum and I am grateful to have their commitment.
“The team will work hard to deliver on our goals to contribute a really positive aspect to our events industry,” said Mr Davison.
The ISES Connect events are the core deliverable of the ISES Sydney team. Once a month the team organises an event relating to a specific issue or topic impacting the industry.
“This month’s event, held at Sydney’s Event Showcase is a good example of the type of event we want to hold. Michelle Bowden will talk about issues related to sales, leadership and customer service, topics, I don’t think we talk enough about in this industry,” said Mr Davison.
