I graduate the programme significantly more informed, but, more importantly, I am motivated to roll my sleeves up and find ways to continue to help the Islands grow.???

“Leadership Cayman has been an amazing experience. 2016 did not start off in the best way personal for me and being a part of this awesome group of people helped me to get back on track. I have bonded with people whose path I otherwise wouldn’t have crossed and it has opened my eyes to perspectives and viewpoints that I may not ever have turned my mind to. It has been an intensive and rewarding experience all around.???
