Chamber bites Updates from Chamber partners 

Business Coaching Cayman, a partnership between the Chamber of Commerce and Shirlaws Cayman, is a six-month programme specifically designed to give participants the access they need to vital tools, techniques and skills that will help them not just survive in today’s globally competitive environment but thrive, enhance and grow their businesses.

The programme examines the core of each business, assisting participants in planning for and achieving their company’s strategy and vision. The programme was conceived out of conversations between Shirlaws and the Chamber in 2012 around how to give affordable access to business coaching to Chamber member businesses at a level where they can be given immediate value for themselves and their businesses.

In March, thirteen business leaders completed the sessions and are now benefitting from the new strategies. Graduates include Ian Barnard – Barnards Ltd.; Wil Pineau, CCE – Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce; Alan Silverman – Dine by Design Ltd.; Laura Silverman – Dine by Design Ltd.; Martha Godet – Fidelity; Jancy Madison – Fidelity; Laura Ribbins – Fitness Connection; Woody Foster – Foster’s Food Fair; Lori McRae – Frederick & McRae Ltd.; Morgan and Jocelyn DaCosta – Maedac Group; Melissa Wolfe – Melissa Wolfe Photography; and Natalie Urquhart – National Gallery of the Cayman Islands.

“Business Coaching is a true partnership between the Chamber and Shirlaws and one that we are also very happy to note was wholeheartedly supported by Fidelity as our programme sponsor.

“The inaugural programme was a resounding success and we encourage interested businesses to register early as several businesses were disappointed to enquire last year only to find that we had sold out the programme well in advance of the start date,” said Tom McCallum, Business Coach at Shirlaws Cayman, who was instrumental with developing the programme.

The next six month session will begin in October.
