Sector Forum focuses on Energy and Environment

Networking opportunity with Wirral Chamber of Commerce

Energy and the environment will be the focus of the next Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce ‘sector forum’ on March 20th.

The Island’s biggest business network is holding a series of monthly forums, each one focusing on a different sector of the Island’s economy.


The series began last month (Feb) with a forum on engineering and manufacturing. The aim is to allow businesses to share ideas and benefit from networking opportunities, and build links with the business sector in the north west of England.


All of the forums are being run in conjunction with Wirral Chamber of Commerce.


The second forum in the series is at Douglas Water Treatment Plant, Holmefield Road, on March 20th. It begins at 10am with time for registration and networking before an introduction to the day’s events, followed at 10.45 by a presentation from Isle of Man Chamber’s FUEL (Future Emerging Leaders) committee.


Energy and environment experts from Isle of Man Government complete the morning’s presentations. Following lunch and a tour round the Water Treatment Plant, the afternoon sessions begin with a forum led by Dr Richard Bujko from the Manx Utilities Authority which will focus on future energy scenarios to the year 2050.


This will lead into presentations and discussions with Tom Kelly, Director, Inteb Managed Services and Chair of Wirral Energy and Environment Sector Forum; and Jonathan Quinn, CEO Owner Founder (Blockwalls™, Bullion Tech, Hygienic Innovations and EncapsUwaste Ltd) and Vice Chair of Wirral Energy and Environment Sector Forum.


Isle of Man organisations represented at the energy and environment forum include Barclays, Cyber Science, Ellan Vannin Fuels, HSBC, Mann Benham advocates, SCS, Strix SPARK Impact, TUM, The Energy Savers, and representatives from Isle of Man Government’s Cabinet Office and Department for Enterprise.


Future topics include Finance and Professional Services on April 17th, the Visitor Economy on May 22nd, Construction on June 20th and Digital, July 17th.


All Forums are free to attend but advance booking is essential by emailing Rebecca George at rebecca.george@iomchamber.org.im
