What concerns/issues do you believe our youth are struggling with most?

Lack of vision and connection. It is critical that our children have access to both a good education and to ideas and images that will spark their creativity. That they leave school armed with both knowledge and imagination to get ahead and to make a difference.

Lack of positive role models (at the family level and beyond) and failure to promote a shared national identity (with shared values) that our youth can be inspired by and commit to.

Speaking topics

  • Using creativity and innovation to excel in this rapidly changing world of ours. Thinking outside the Box and instilling a creative thread in in every area of our
  • Follow your passion in life/career. Passion can be contagious, motivating and inspiring to others. When we love what we do, the potential is endless.

What would you tell the youth of Cayman today if you had a microphone in your hand and 60 seconds?

“I believe that each one of you is pure potential, that each of you has the ability to do great things, to make positive change, or in the words of the great Ghandi “To be the change that you wish to see in the world." What you can’t do is sit back and wait for this.

Remember success starts with inspirational people. People who dare to dream of great achievement. They inspire others around them to believe and share in the dream. Anyone of you can be that person. As the students in the 21st century you are coming of age in an amazing time. With the skills gained during your time at school combined with your commitment to your education you can go on to great things. Your possibilities are truly endless if you believe in yourself. It is up to you to make this happen by studying hard, asking questions, seeking mentorship, believing in yourself and always – and I mean always – doing your very best."
