The Caribbean Leadership Project (CLP), funded by the Government of Canada and executed by the Canada School of Public Service, presents its fifth Leadership Symposium from June 28th -29th, 2018 at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica. Over 120 senior leaders in the public sectors from across the Region and representatives of key regional and international agencies, have registered for the Symposium which promises to be an exciting, educational and engaging event.

The Symposium, which focuses on Building Leadership Resilience, includes a one-day workshop that is focused on practical techniques and approaches to increase mental toughness, respond to stressful events and thrive in the face of adversity. This workshop will be facilitated by the CLP’s special guest facilitator, Crisis Leadership & Change Management Expert, Dr. Wayne Corneil.

On the morning of June 28th, Jamaica’s Minister of Finance and the Public Service, The Hon. Dr. Nigel Clarke, will officially declare the start of the symposium, following his feature address. He will be joined by Her Excellency Laurie Peters, Canada's High Commissioner to Jamaica and Dr. Darran Newman, Division Chief (Ag.) at the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), who will also be sharing remarks at the Opening Ceremony. This will be live streamed on CLP’s Facebook page at

On June 29th, the Symposium will feature enriching discourse on the enabling environment for leadership development; revitalising the Caribbean with Action Learning; leadership bright spots in the Caribbean, and the way forward for leadership development in the Region.
