Pictured: Leadership Cayman Class of 2016
The Leadership Cayman Class of 2016 recently took the annual trip to the Sister Islands. The two-day visit provides insight and perspective on how the Islands function and perform on a day-to-day basis.
The Sister Islands visit was mentored by Chevala Burke and Rob Tate, and was moderated by Melissa Lim and Oneisha Richards.
The Leadership Cayman Class members had a packed itinerary for the two days, planning to tour a number of institutions and organisations during that time. On arrival to Cayman Brac, the Class were given a tour of the Charles Kirkconnell International Airport, before dropping their belongings off at the Brac Reef Beach Resort where they would be staying.
Others tours during day-one included a visit to the Cayman Brac Museum, a tour of the Government Administration Building, the Cayman Brac Power and Light tour, a visit to Faith Hospital, and a tour of the Brac Reef Beach Resort.
Later they would enjoy a mouth-watering dinner, before the seminars and sessions began where Class members could discuss the day’s events and what perspectives they had gained so far.
The evening’s discussions then spread into a discussion amongst an expert panel, which included Youth Ambassador, Mr. Keino Daley; RCIPS’ Ms. Wendy Parchment; District Commissioner for the Sister Islands, Mr. Ernie Scott; and General Manager of Cayman Brac Power & Light, Mr. Jonathan Tibbetts.
The panel also participated in a question-and-answer sessions with the Leadership Cayman Class, providing the attendees with even greater insight into life on the Sister Islands.
The tours continued during day-two, with the Class spending the day touring the Beach Resort Lighthouse, Peter’s Cave, Cayman Brac Sports Complex, and Heritage House – before checking-in for their return flight home to Grand Cayman.
The Sister Islands visit was the perfect way for our Leadership Cayman Class Members to gain an in-depth insight in to how our neighbours live and thrive, and it is certain that it provided the attendees with influential food-for-thought.
