New Barbados Study Profiles Top Business Executives
The development of a strong entrepreneurship culture in Barbados is set to receive a boost from Profiles Caribbean Inc. who have produced a Study entitled “It is Possible: A Study of Barbados’ Top Business Executives” which focuses on the shared success characteristics of this island’s top entrepreneurs.
Profiles Caribbean Inc. a leading regional human resources (HR) firm specializing in occupational assessments, search and selection as well as HR advisory services, will launch the Study at the upcoming Barbados National Entrepreneurship Summit being staged on November 16 – 17, 2010, at the Hilton Barbados.
“It is Possible: A Study of Barbados’ Top Business Executives,” the first of its kind to be conducted in Barbados, takes a intimate look at the traits, occupational interests and views of the country’s leading, most successful and well known business executives in an effort to give other aspiring or existing business executives a benchmark by which to measure themselves.
Peter Downes, Chief Executive Officer of Profiles Caribbean Inc. said the Study is long over due and that Profiles hopes it will be instrumental in ensuring that Barbados’ executives develop further:
“The purpose of the study is to objectively identify the shared characteristics of selected participants and develop a success pattern or template, to be used by existing and potential entrepreneurs as well as business executives to assist with their development… the launch of the Study at the Barbados National Entrepreneurship Summit is timely as we will have the benefit of scores of experienced executives who may want to advance or refresh their skills.”
Several recognisable names are included in the list of business executives who have agreed to participate in the Study. Ralph “Bizzy” Williams of Williams Industries, Dereck Foster of Art Holdings Inc., Rawle Brancker of Brancker’s, Bernie Weatherhead of Caribbean World Travel Services Ltd. and Chiryl Newman of Champers Restaurant are all included in addition to several other well known business executives.
After the launch at Hilton Barbados, interested persons can purchase the Study from Profiles Caribbean Inc. or they can complete an online assessment and be profiled against the benchmark of the surveyed top business executives to gain coaching comments geared at improving their future growth and development.
