Leadership conference to provide ‘blueprint for success’

“Blueprint for Success” is the theme for a leadership conference scheduled to take place at the Spice Island Beach Resort Conference Room on Thursday, February 27, 2014 and one of the speakers will be Acting Comptroller of the Inland Revenue Department, Dr. Raphael Stephen.

Organised by the Consultancy in Law, Governance & Rights (CILG&R), the one-day leadership conference will be focusing on continued training and discourse for established and upcoming leaders in both small and large establishments as well as in civil society.

The conference will be organised and chaired by CILG&R’s Principal Consultant, Anande Trotman-Joseph, a local Attorney-at-Law, board member of the Caribbean Institute for Women in Leadership, member of the regional Advisory Group to UN Women and regional consultant in areas of rule of law, human rights and strategic planning. She is ably assisted in the organisation of this conference by Consultants Deborah Baveghems APS, a John Maxwell Team Certified Coach & Trainer in Personal Growth, Leadership Skills and Business; and Carole Noble, MSc in Public Policy and Business Management.

“This signature Leadership Conference will provide a space for discourse by a cadre of national leaders under the theme, ‘Blueprint for Success’, and will offer the perfect opportunity for leaders and their teams to upgrade their skills and to interact with other teams,” said Trotman-Joseph.

The interactive agenda is expected to focus on areas of interest to national leaders with the feature presentation being delivered by Mr. Darryl Brathwaite on the topic, “The Balance of Leadership”. Other presenters include Dr. Lawrence Joseph on “The Required Characteristics of a Leader”.

There will also be a panel discussion on the importance of honest and open communications, while local multi-media artist Suelin Low Chew Tung will be presenting on “The Importance of Social
and Creative Trends, Restoring our National Soul through Art”.

Dr. Raphael Stephen will speak about, “The Immediate and Long-term Impact of Current Tax Reforms on individuals and businesses”; Dr. Jenny Japal-Isaacs will speak on “Ignoring your Health: You might be a ticking time bomb”; Mrs. Gloria Payne-Banfield will address the topic, “Respect Due, Understanding Protocol”; and Mrs. Carole Noble on the “Effective Use of Social Media by organisations”.

Grenadian singers Tammy Baldeo and Jay McDonald are expected to perform, while artist Suelin and a visiting Haitian artist will mount a small exhibition during the day.

The organisers expect positive outcomes of the conference including the establishment of network linkages between like-minded leaders, a think-tank/caucus of leaders, meeting periodically to discuss national issues following the event. (LS)
