Five Workshops & A Baroness: Entrepreneurship Summit Speakers Ready To Deliver at 2 Mile Hill
The Barbados Entrepreneurship Foundation’s third National Entrepreneurs’ Summit is all geared up to deliver real value to the entrepreneurial community.
This year’s keynote speaker hails from Trinidad yet is making headway in UK politics…
The ex-Play School presenter, now a Liberal Democrat peer, believes that there are “dangers and hidden consequences” if youngsters are exposed to too much television and internet, reported The Daily Mail.
“Worryingly, we have no idea of the long-term implications for how all this will affect their personal and social development,” said Baroness Benjamin during a debate about childhood.
“There are dangers and hidden consequences of the digital age and we do not yet know how it will affect the way our children’s brains develop and their thought processes.”
Baroness Benjamin also urged parents not to allow their kids to watch television or browse the internet in the evening due to the psychologically effects that it could have.
“For years, I have spoken out and pleaded with parents not to allow children to watch television or access computers in their bedrooms, especially late at night,” she said.
There will be five focused workshops designed to address the real needs and issues of the business community.
These workshops are as follows:
