Event TV: Interview with ISES president Jane Hague

Event spoke exclusively to Jane Hague, the International Special Events Society (ISES) UK's president for 2013/14. She talks about the association's board being 50% women, and her female business role model, Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook.

Speaking ahead of the association’s 2013 AGM and summer party at Dutch Hall this week, Hague - who is head of corporate account development at Excel London - told Event: "I am really proud to say that I have got Kelly Baker, who is the president elect and will come into presidency next year."

Hague said ISES also has a female president at its US headquarters in Chicago called Kathy Miller.

"I think ISES really represents females in our industry very well," Hague added.

She said Sheryl Sandberg, chief operating officer at Facebook, is a female within business who she admires because of her TED Talk videos about women in leadership roles.
