Cable & Wireless encourages return of talent to the Caribbean

2006 Caribbean MBA Conference
This week, 50 MBA candidates from two of the world''s leading business schools - the Harvard Business School and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania - arrived in Barbados for the 2006 Caribbean MBA Conference, January 3rd - 5th, 2006, an annual event designed to encourage students of Caribbean heritage to consider career paths that enable them to contribute to the development of the region.

Honorable Owen Arthur, Prime Minister of Barbados, gave the keynote welcome address while the conference featured panels of leading experts in Real Estate, Trade, Financial Services, Tourism and Entrepreneurship in the Caribbean. The conference is aimed at exploring what it means to live, work and invest in the Caribbean. One of the highlights of the week was the Business Leaders Dinner, where over 60 key executives from businesses such as Cable & Wireless and First Caribbean International Bank joined the MBA candidates for dinner, providing opportunities for in-depth discussion about doing business in the Caribbean.

Cable & Wireless is a Platinum sponsor of the event, having supported the conference last year in Trinidad & Tobago. Said Rick Kimsey, CEO of Cable & Wireless'' Caribbean region, "We are proud to support the 4th Annual Caribbean MBA Conference. Many people talk about the challenges to the region presented by "brain drain" that occurs when many of the region''s most talented, capable, and best-educated students opt for careers outside of the Caribbean. As a large corporation operating in the region, it''s not only our responsibility to encourage development of the business community. It''s also in our best interest!"
