As Philip Atkins passed over the baton and welcomed Jane Hague as new ISES UK President, the evening was an opportunity to look forward to the coming year with some exciting new initiatives announced as well as growth of new member organisatons. A spritely party followed for members and industry peers to network and celebrate at the Grade II listed building, exclusively represented by Industri Management.
Jane Hague, ISES UK President added; "Last year's board, under Philip’s excellent direction, made great strides in positioning ISES to be more relevant and representative of our members. I'm keen to build on this momentum so ISES has a stronger and more collaborative relationship with its members, with the industry and with the wider creative industries.”
"Now is a great time to be a part of ISES, we have a great community of members who are passionate about what they do and what we do together. This is attracting more and more likeminded professionals and I'm confident this will grow the quality of our learning, our networking and our association as a whole.”
Table Talk catered for the evening with a menu including hot and cold canapés of home smoked mackerel in a beetroot cone, horseradish cream, fresh apple and daikon shoots; gravadlax of chermoulah salmon on spiced blini with preserved lemon and coriander yoghurt; duck confit and kataifi lollipops with liquid cherry centre; fritto misto; steak, egg and chips along with desserts of mixed berry and champagne shooters and salted caramel lollies.
Hague summed up the evening; “It was great to see so many new faces last night as well as the continued support from members and the industry. That in itself is a great sign of confidence so we were really happy to be able to welcome the next chapter for ISES UK and celebrate with so many people.”
