Leading this initiative as chairman of the steering committee responsible for follow-through, will be Chamber Council Member Shayne Howe, managing director of the Phoenix Group of Companies. He will be joined by industry sector leaders, business partners, public sector and government officials.
“Aligning the efforts of the private and public sectors has always been a personal goal of mine. We are fortunate to have such a strong community spirit and leaders that genuinely care about the future of our Islands. This forum provides us a platform to develop a strategic plan that embraces the government and private sector initiatives in concert.
We need immediate action and teamwork will be the key to our success. We are privileged to have IBM partnering with us on facilitating this event. Their world experience in strategic planning and Smart Planet initiatives will not only assist us with developing the plan but maintaining it moving forward. I am proud to be involved and look forward to everyone’s participation during this very important event.”
