Scott will take over from current president Alistair Turner at the end of his tenure. In the meantime, he will support Turner and the board in its mission to grow the footprint of the association over the coming months in the role of president elect.
"Our job at ILEA UK is to represent and talk to both the events community and the business and brand community, and there are few better people doing this in the industry than Jason at the moment," said Turner. "Jason has been a massive contributor to ILEA over the last few years and will continue the amazing work being done within the association at the moment."
In his weekly podcast, Scott talks to entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, 'wannaprenuers' and event professionals. The show is in its third season and is on the Apple iTunes New & Noteworthy list.
"This is a real honour for me and gives me the chance to make a real contribution to an industry that I love," commented Scott. "Every week The Guestlist Podcasts talks to people with amazing stories in business and in life, and because of this we’re seeing more and more people taking a look at the events industry. This is what we’ve done as a board in the last 12 months and will continue to do so over the next few years. There has never been a better time to be part of ILEA UK."
Scott is also a consultant, professional speaker and author of the Eventrepreneur books on events, weddings and the hotel industry?
Alistair Turner, managing director of Eight PR & Marketing, took over as president of the ILEA UK Chapter this summer.
The association rebranded from ISES earlier in the year.
