Dragon Devey to speak at Mount Murray

Award-winning entrepreneur and star of the BBC’s Dragon’s Den Hilary Devey will be the guest speaker at the Isle of Man Sporting and Dining Club this evening (Thursday).

Founder of pallet distribution business The Pall-Ex Group, she is one of the UK’s most successful ‘rags to riches’ entrepreneurs.

She had initially been unable to secure backing for Pall-Ex and had to sell her house and car to find the funds she needed.

Sponsored by HSBC, tonight’s event and charity auction is at the Mount Murray Hotel and Country Club in Santon.
