Thursday, October 8th will see Sir Ian Cheshire, Chair of Barclays Bank UK PLC and former CEO of Kingfisher plc and B&Q join leading business owners, directors and managers of island companies as guest speaker at the forthcoming LinkedInLocal Isle of Wight ‘Live’ event. Online sessions that regularly bring members of the islands business community together to meet the people behind the profiles.

This 11th event in the online ‘Live’ series will see Sir Ian Cheshire deliver business insights and reflect on his career, in addition to taking questions from those attending. LinkedInLocal Isle of Wight ‘Live’ was launched in April of this year by Dale Howarth, Chris Court and Jonathan Thornton as an extension of their already popular LinkedInLocal face to face events, to further support those in business in these unprecedented times.

Each session in the ‘Live’ series gives those in business the opportunity to hear important updates from Chamber CEO Steven Holbrook and Isle of Wight Council Cabinet Member Councillor Gary Peace, in addition to gaining insights from an impressive array of guest speakers. Previous guest speakers have included the Island’s Lord-Lieutenant Mrs Susie Sheldon JP, Head of Visit Isle of Wight Will Myles, leading Employment Lawyer Alison Coley, Red Funnel CFO Graham Barnetson and Vectis Housing CEO, Martyn Pearl.

Unlike some online networking events, LinkedInLocal Isle of Wight ‘Live’ provides a professional environment for the exchange of ideas and experiences, plus the opportunity to hear from guest speakers that add value to each session. Enabling meaningful, relaxed, value added interactions to take place, without the fear of being pitched to or sold at.

Demand is expected to be high from those looking to hear from Sir Ian Cheshire, develop new business insights and expand their personal networks. To find out more about LinkedInLocal Isle of Wight ‘Live’ simply go to or use LinkedIn to contact Dale, Chris or Jonathan directly for an invitation to attend these free powerful networking events.
