Sir Ian Cheshire, Chair of Barclays Bank UK PLC and former CEO of Kingfisher PLC, will join leading business owners and managers of Isle of Wight companies as a guest speaker at the forthcoming LinkedInLocal Isle of Wight ‘Live’ event.

The latest in a series of online sessions that bring members of the Island’s business community together, to meet the people behind the profiles, will take place on Thursday 8th October. This 11th event 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 Cham 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, 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. 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.
