Imagination’s director of special events and productions will be appointed to the International Special Events Society (ISES) International Board of Governors in August – the first non-American in seven years and the first Briton to serve in eight years.
Foulkes, a member of ISES since 1999 and the current president of the ISES UK chapter, will serve on the Board of Governors, headquartered in Chicago, until August 2014.
Foulkes said his appointment would contribute to strengthening the international brands of both Imagination and ISES.
“In accepting this voluntary role, my goal is to help ISES continue to grow its brand across the world by ensuring it has a truly international perspective and an even stronger worldwide appeal to the creative events industry.
“A stronger international brand in the creative event sector will bring value to our members across the world and provide differentiation in their own region.”
ISES International president Heather Henderson, CSEP, CMP, added: “(Richard’s) passion and commitment to our membership is evident through his work with the ISES UK chapter. I look forward to collaborating with him and all the international volunteers this year on the strategic initiatives of the association.”
