2023 Isle of Man Director of the Year launched

The Institute of Directors Isle of Man (IoD) is inviting nominations and entries for the 2023 Isle of Man Director of the Year Awards, sponsored by Lloyds Bank International.

The prestigious awards recognise the broad spectrum of leadership talent, success, and achievement in the Isle of Man. The awards are free to enter and are open to any directors based in the Island, even if they are not currently linked to the IoD in any way.

“The awards are a celebration of leadership and success across our business and third sector communities. They also recognise good governance and other attributes such as accountability and ability to inspire a team. The 2022 awards proved to be our most successful to date, both in terms of the quality and quantity of the submissions, and in the demand to attend the gala awards evening.”
