IoD Cumbria will be setting sail for our Annual Windermere cruise event on 12th July. This year, the popular event will feature guest speaker Barry Leahey MBE, MD of Playdale Playgrounds and Cumbria Businessperson of the Year.
In addition to his role at Playdale, Barry has received numerous awards including our IoD North West Global Director of the Year 2018. After welcome drinks, you will hear from Barry who will share his personal journey with Playdale and how with passion and a plan, a small Cumbria Business has become a truly global player.
The two and a half hour Cruise will commence at 18.45 from Ambleside Waterhead Ferry Landing, where delegates will enjoy a welcome drink before launch. The evening welcomes members, non members, friends, family, colleagues and clients for an evening of networking with a difference. You will be treated to a Cumbrian buffet, as well as fantastic views of the lakes, mountains and secluded bays surrounding Windermere and the opportunity to chat and network in the most stunning of surroundings.
Barry Leahey MBE, Cumbrian Businessperson of the Year said: ''I'm really looking forward to networking with so many like-minded people, showcasing the best that Cumbria has to offer and demonstrating what a great place it is to live and work; and what better place to do this than on Cumbria's most iconic landmark!''
