Virtual coffee and connect

IoD South West: Virtual Coffee & Connect

Join us for our monthly 'member only' informal, virtual meet.

This is a great opportunity for business leaders to chat to one another regarding issues that are currently affecting their businesses, or simply to meet some new faces and make new connections. Our IoD South West ‘Coffee & Connect’ event will be hosted by one of our IoD South West Ambassadors, this month we will be hosted by our Ambassador for Manufacturing & Engineering, Darren Colley who will be discussing 'Leadership'.  Vince Lombardi wisely quipped, “The man on top of the mountain didn’t fall there”. Success does not happen by accident… and neither does becoming a leader. The road to meaningful influence is marked by deliberate steps to acquire knowledge, gain experience, and engage in ways that specifically relate to leadership. Followers can do this on their own, but leaders have a tacit responsibility to grow other leaders and must find ways to further the leadership development of those around them.

These relaxed informal one-hour sessions will welcome members, create those all-important introductions, and connect you in the world of virtual whilst listening and debating topical issues.

The meeting will take place virtually on Teams where you will be joined by other South West directors and senior business leaders. Please do take this opportunity to connect. Register today! We very much look forward to welcoming you.
