The world’s economic landscape has changed dramatically over the past few years. Amid continuing global uncertainty, the Isle of Man – like many other International Business Centres – needs to adapt fast to meet these new challenges.
The Island is already recognised for its well-regulated economy and competitive business environment, as well as its agile and supportive Government which fosters strong private/public sector partnerships. Its successful, diversified economy features established sectors such as financial services, maritime, tourism and precision manufacturing, through to new sectors like e-business, space, clean-tech and aviation services.
But as current global economic pressures show little sign of abating, what are the challenges facing businesses – both international and local – on the Isle of Man? How can the Isle of Man work with other key economic partners, such as the UK, to help entrepreneurs and businesses thrive and survive?
To discuss this, we’re bringing together entrepreneur Courtenay Heading, founding director of leading clean tech company Bladon Jets, and an Inward Investment Adviser to the Isle of Man Government, and Chris Cummings, Chief Executive of TheCityUK, for a live webcast looking at the future of business on the Isle of Man. They’ll be joined by BBC presenter Roger Hearing.
The webcast will take place at 9am on Thursday, November 15.
