Business Executive says Barbados has far to go to see next five decades

Key elements of Barbadian society were given a wake-up call by a major member of the corporate community who says responsibility, accountability and implementation must be paramount if this country is to make another 50 years at least.

John M.B. Williams the CEO of Cave Shepherd and Company limited was the keynote for CTUSAB's 11th Biennial Delegates' Conference at the Savannah hotel in Hastings last night. He told the audience in his 30 years of work he noted too many times the archaic trends of dependency and shunning of dissent at every level of society.

In his view, it is ensuring there are different voices allows for Barbados to thrive, he says too often difference of opinion is seen as a crime when in fact, it it the very disparity which carries Barbados forward. By allowing mavericks makes it easier to develop entrepreneurism and lateral thinking.

Mr Williams believes in his post at Cave Shepherd he should not qualify for free healthcare while pensioners who are desperate for basic medication must trim corners to see if they can scrape up adequate assistance, he added that if Ministers appear incapable or unable to perform their duties in administering to Barbados’ needs then it is time to change the Minister with someone who is more cooperative – it is all a matter of doing the best we can with the resources available.
