ICSA Jersey Announce Guest Speaker for Sell-Out Annual Dinner & Awards 2016

The Jersey Council of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA) has announced today that Daniel William Finkelstein (Baron Finkelstein) OBE will be the guest speaker at the forthcoming ICSA Jersey Annual Dinner, Awards & Graduation Ceremony. An award-winning journalist and a renowned weekly columnist, Daniel is also a former Executive Editor and now Associate Editor of The Times.

After serving as director of a Westminster think tank focusing on social policy, he became a political advisor to then Prime Minister John Major and later William Hague. He was awarded an OBE for his governmental services in the 1997 honours list.


Daniel was consecutively named 'Political Commentator of the Year' in 2011 and 2012 at the Editorial Intelligence Comment Awards. The following year he was made life peer and given the title of Baron Finkelstein of Pinner, Middlesex.

Daniel’s visit to Jersey has been kindly sponsored by ZEDRA.


Julie Fairclough, Director, ZEDRA Jersey, said: “ZEDRA are proud to be a part of this year’s ICSA Awards. The ceremony celebrates the achievements of outstanding ICSA students as well as 125 years of ICSA championing good governance. This prestigious event is by far one of the most important ceremonies in the local business calendar. 


“We are delighted to have been instrumental in bringing Daniel Finkelstein over to the Island as guest speaker this year. As a prominent commentator, Daniel will undoubtedly provide a sharp and entertaining insight into life led on the political frontline. His insider experience in a transitional political world has gained Daniel a wealth of knowledge that will be invaluable to both ICSA students and local business owners alike. 

“The importance of good governance remains pivotal during any period of transition, now more than ever we look forward to learning from Daniel’s unique experience.”

ICSA Jersey Chairman, Robert Le Corre added:  “We are very grateful to ZEDRA for making Daniel’s visit to Jersey possible.  We look forward very much to listening to his unique insights and observations, no doubt with a number of entertaining anecdotes along the way.

“Together with the recognition of academic achievement of our students and the announcement of the winners of the ICSA Jersey Awards 2016, Daniel’s speech will mark the pinnacle of our 125 year anniversary celebrations.”

The popular and prestigious black-tie ICSA Jersey Annual Dinner, Awards & Graduation Ceremony is sponsored by BPP Professional Education, Brainloop, Rowlands Recruitment, Sator Regulatory Consulting, and ZEDRA, and will be held at the Hotel de France on Friday, 30th September 2016.
