A handful of business men and women
on Grand Cayman are a bit more media savvy following a seminar Saturday night.
Leadership Cayman, a Chamber of
Commerce initiated programme, had its first seminar at the Marriot with four
members of the media.
“Leadership Cayman is providing the
inaugural class with an in-depth understanding of the society in which they
live and work,” said Chamber of Commerce CEO Wil Pineau. “The first seminar
provided the inaugural class with a unique opportunity to interact and ask
questions to some of the key media representatives who report on the important
issues affecting our daily lives.
“The breakout sessions and panel
discussions were lively and insightful and provided the class with a better
understanding of this important industry sector. I would like to thank the
Cayman Free Press, dms Broadcasting, Radio Cayman and Cayman News Service for
participating in the programme.”
Guest speakers included Cayman Free
Press Editor Tammie Chisholm, Cayman Free Press Business Manager Teritia Peart,
dms Broadcasting Marketing Manager Bryan Hollenbaugh, co-founder of Cayman News
Service Wendy Ledger and Radio Cayman News Director Jay Ehrhart.
Other seminars will include
criminal justice, Government, the Sister Islands perspective, diversity, human
services and health care, financial services, stayover and cruise tourism,
sustainable development and the environment, cultural arts and education.
graduation participants will be invited to join the Leadership Cayman Alumni
Association which will allow them to network with other alumni from the Cayman
Islands and also other Leadership programmes from North America. This is an
excellent opportunity for anyone interested in playing a more active role in
our community as well as developing their own skills as a leader and
