Testimonials

Emma-Jane Fisher, Class of 2021
“An amazing experience overall, that opened my eyes to the inner workings of the Islands. After living in Cayman for 10+ years, you feel that you know everything, until you attend the seminars and learn from the panelists and your peers of the issues that we face across the many different sectors that make up the Cayman Islands. The opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals is exceptional.”

"My experience in Leadership Cayman was definitely amazing and worthwhile. It was one of the best leadership programs that I have participated in. It didn’t only teach leadership but taught camaraderie and a host of other things. Our class was and is phenomenal and showed great resilience, strength, and leadership through such an abnormal year."
