Farewell to summer Connect lunch

Fabulous Connect opportunity with guest speaker Joanne Thurlow.

Sponsored by Lloyds Bank International

Fabulous Connect opportunity with guest speaker Joanne Thurlow.

Enjoy great company and good conversation in the contemporary surroundings of Bonzai Pan Asian Kitchen, a new venue for IoD Isle of Man.

Connect lunches are an informal, fun event allowing you to build connections and hear from an interesting speaker during your working day.

Guests will have the opportunity for networking on arrival, followed by a pre-ordered one course meal. No doubt an interesting Q&A will follow the after lunch discussion!

Joanne Thurlow is an experienced international speaker. Guests can expect an informative discussion on capturing a global audience - providing top tips for presenting to a worldwide audience, the art of storytelling, how to be engaging and relevant whilst delivering your key message, and why public speaking is critical to success (despite being one of the biggest fears people have).


Tickets include a welcome drink and one course pre-ordered meal.

Rachel will email a menu to guests prior to the event for your meal selection.

The bar will be open for additional purchases.


IoD Isle of Man is kindly supported by Lloyds Bank International.
