Graduates of this year’s Leadership Cayman programme

(CNS Local Life): The Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce has opened registration for its 2020 Leadership Cayman Programme, which provides class members with an in-depth view of social, economic, business, political and community aspects of the Cayman Islands. Programme members also acquire new leadership skills and engage in community projects.

Speaking about Leadership Cayman, which was launched in 2009, Chamber president Christopher Kirkconnell said in a press release, “Each year, intake for the Leadership Cayman programme represents a broad range of industries in the Cayman Islands. Participants are able to take the skills that they learn in the programme and put them into practice in their day-to-day work, benefiting their organisations and the wider community tremendously.”

The Chamber will be hosting an information session on the programme on Wednesday, 24 July, from 6pm to 7pm, at its training facility in Governor’s Square.  

Jennifer McKinney, a 2019 graduate of Leadership Cayman, called the programme “first-class”, adding it “delivered everything I was hoping for…from learning in-depth about the Cayman Islands to building new friendships. I really can’t say enough great things about this programme and would recommend it to all leaders.”

Fellow 2019 graduate Danielle Roberts said of her experience, “The past six months have opened my eyes to not only how many aspects of our economy and society work, but to understand many of the critical needs of this country. The knowledge accumulated will afford me the opportunity for engagement in social needs far beyond this programme.”

Applicants interested in applying must be at least 25 years old by 1 January 2020, have lived in the Cayman Islands for a minimum of 12 months, and be in at least a middle-management position in their current employment. The application deadline is 31 July.

There are 24 spaces available for next year’s programme. Applicants can apply online, or register to attend the upcoming information session, at the Leadership Cayman website
