2019 has proven to be quite a year, with great events and fantastic attendance!
We have continued to offer an array of events from CPD seminars, popular Ladies Lunches and fun social networking opportunities, including the Dining Club experience and flagship Prestige Lunches to name but a few.
We are also thrilled to have local members completing the IoD Professional Development Qualifications, both at Certificate and Diploma level! We look forward to continuing these courses locally in 2020.
We have welcomed three new committee members to our strong team of volunteers, and look forward to seeing how we can progress, as we take steps towards being part of the IoD International.
Thank you to our branch sponsor HSBC who have enabled us to offer a variety of social, dining and CPD events throughout the year. We were delighted to be involved in the HSBC Women in Business event in November and we look forward to exploring future partnership engagements.
We also give thanks to Barclays for sponsoring our Prestige Lunch events, as well as Appleby, Baker Tilly, Isle of Man Bank, Salford Professional Development and TISE. We really appreciate the support from our local business community.
Thank you also to our fabulous speakers who provide informative and insightful guidance, knowledge and support to our members.
The Roadshow events (one of my personal favourites as it signified the start of my IoD journey!) were a great success and we hope to hold more across the island as we expand our new Net Events program.
We have made donations to the Diana Princess of Wales Care at Home Trust, the Manx Heart Foundation and Graih – all local charities and thanks to your involvement at our events.
Finally, thank you to all our Members. We appreciate your support and look forward to helping you continue your membership journey in 2020!
Please keep an eye on the website for new social media links.
On behalf of the IoD Isle of Man Committee we wish you a wonderful Christmas and best wishes for the New Year!
All the best, Rachel
