 The International Special Events Society, an organization of more than 5,500 international special events professionals, announced a strategic partnership last week with the Event Leadership Institute. The institute, founded by industry veteran Howard Givner, offers a collection of online classes taught by industry experts. The ELI's courses will be the first to receive the new "ISES Approved" designation for educational offerings. The two organizations will collaborate on the development of ongoing educational content to ensure that the classes are in line with ISES objectives.
