Prominent Times columnist and advisor to the Conservative party, Lord Daniel Finkelstein OBE, has been confirmed as the guest speaker at this year’s ICSA: The Governance Institute Annual Branch Dinner. Taking place on Friday 15 September, the annual black tie dinner recognises the achievements of ICSA members and students in the Isle of Man and is the premier social event for governance professionals living and working on the island.
Associate Editor at The Times, Lord Finkelstein is a columnist and is responsible for the digital edition. He is also a member of the Lords and an advisor to the Conservative Party. A prominent commentator who likened the Coalition to American college fraternities - “The more humiliating, the more people wanted to join” - he can be expected to provide a sharp and entertaining insight into the political scene.
“Our annual branch dinner is a chance for us to celebrate the achievements of our students and members, many of whom have studied hard to qualify as governance professionals while working at the same time. Organisations worldwide now recognise the importance of good governance and it is wonderful that we can take this opportunity to recognise them in this way. They are the people helping companies to maintain high standards of corporate governance so that they can operate effectively and ethically on the right side of the law and achieve their aims,” says Christine Clucas, Chair of ICSA: The Governance Institute’s Isle of Man Branch.
The celebratory dinner will run from 7pm until midnight at the Mount Murray Golf Club. Tickets cost £50 per person. Tables of ten or twelve are available, with tables of 12 being offered at the discounted rate of £550.
