Philosophy

We are God’s expression; created for a purpose – unique and valuable.  

Each of us is different from the other – our identity, gifts and presence. When we discover and embrace our authentic self, our unique purpose shines forth; blazing the trail for our work and worth – leaving our mark on the world.

Learning & Cultural Transformation

Learning is about change; the ability to adjust our thinking, attitudes and behaviours in response to our experiences. Cultural transformation is optimizing people’s experiences to foster wellbeing and thriving; personally, in communities and organizations. Learning and cultural transformation are keys to the personal, social and economic development of Jamaica and the Region.

I am helping to empower and develop our people to become catalysts for learning and cultural transformation; particularly in leadership development, ministry and corporate contexts.
