We Built and They Came!

In the 1989 Academy-nominated American fantasy-drama film Field of Dreams, Kevin Costner is spurred to action after hearing a mysterious voice assuring him “If you build it, he [they] will come.”  Well the folks who initiated the Caribbean Leadership Project may not have heard mysterious voices.  However, they certainly set in motion a chain of events that culminated in building/designing and delivering the historic first cohort of the Leadership Development Programme (LDP), and they certainly came! Read More>>

Sustainable Energy and Energy Security in the Region

During Cohort 1 of CLP’s Leadership Development Programme, 12 senior public sector leaders were tasked with exploring the ‘wicked problem’ of Sustainable Energy and Energy Security in the Region.

Underwood, CLP’s Regional Project Manager to assist them in devising creative and meaningful responses to this dilemma.  Read More >>
