The Isle of Man Business Network (“IOMBN”) is pleased to announce that it raised over £6,000 for local charity The Children’s Centre at its Annual Black Tie Ball on Friday 20th May.
The night started with a drinks reception in Tahiko sponsored by Estera, followed by the Ball in the Palace Hotel and Casino, sponsored by Barclays and compared by Peter Sutton of Barclays. The event attracted 170 guests with entertainment provided by guest speaker, David Bryon, followed by live music from local band Soul Suspects.
David Bryon, former Managing Director of bmibaby provided observations into a side of the aviation industry the passenger rarely sees, uncovering the truth about airport check-ins, in-flight communication, customer relations and other joys of 21st century air travel!
“The IOMBN ball is one of the biggest events in our social calendar and was once again a wonderful event,” said Rachael Hooper, Chairman of the IOMBN. “David Bryon was a great speaker; he combined business insights with pure comic genius and shared some great stories of what it’s like to work for an airline.”
“I’d like to thank everyone who came to ball and helped us raise so much money for our chosen charity, The Children’s Centre,” continued Rachael. “I would also like to say a huge thank you to Estera for sponsoring our drinks reception and to Barclays for sponsoring the dinner. Barclays donated £3,000 of matched fundraising which helped us raise an amazing £6,015 on the evening.”
The IOMBN also launched their new initiative on the night, TEAM IOMBN, to connect with the local community and give something back by getting involved in and helping out at events across the Island.
