The Isle of Man Institute of Directors (IoD) branch looks set for another successful year supporting local businesses, thanks to a new sponsorship deal with HSBC in the Isle of Man.
Announced today, the partnership will help the membership organisation to continue providing local business leaders with high quality business events, training and networking opportunities throughout 2019.
Jaime Amoedo, Country Head of HSBC in the Isle of Man, said: “We are proud to be partnered with the IoD and for the opportunity to build on our relationships with businesses here in the Isle of Man. As an organisation, the IoD plays such an important role in representing the voice of local enterprise on the national stage and engaging with its members to make sure that we are all connected and investing in our regional economy.”
The IoD, which has 280 active members in the area supports and sets standards for business leaders both here in the Isle of Man and further afield nationwide. It promotes the views and interests of its members and gives them access to a broad network of business owners.
The North West and Isle of Man divisions of the Institute of Directors joined forces in September 2018 bringing together their networks and benefitting members from both areas. As well as the Isle of Man chapter, the IoD in the North West also includes branches over the water in Manchester, Liverpool, Lancashire, Merseyside, Cheshire, and Cumbria.
Jennifer Houghton, the Chair of the IoD Isle of Man, commented: “Announcing that the IoD on the Island has partnered with HSBC to sponsor our branch is a great start to 2019. This is fantastic news for our members as it will give the branch resources to organise additional functions throughout the year. We’d like to thank HSBC for this opportunity.”
Regional director for the IoD in the North West, Claire Ebrey added: “The IoD in the North West region is proud of its strong relationships with businesses across the commercial spectrum. The support of a global brand, such as HSBC alongside our regional partners means that we can continue to provide our members with the first-rate business networking, education and training opportunities that they need during these unprecedented times.”
