Written by Carlos Dieter on .

“Trinidad and Tobago has the talent, educational institutions, and the most important resource- its people- to succeed, to grow and to internationalise.”

This was the riveting comment made by Mr. Stephen Weeks, the Public Affairs Officer at the Office of the US Ambassador to the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, at the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business, the University of the West Indies’ 2016 Annual Presentation of Graduates on Saturday January 14th, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency, Port of Spain, Trinidad, where 342 students graduated.

In the same thread, Professor Miguel Carrillo, Executive Director and Professor of Strategy at the Lok Jack GSB, continued by stating, “e aspiration that we have for all the graduates is to feel very uncomfortable when you feel comfortable. is is what real innovators do. If you feel that everything is under control, that everything is certain, that the destiny is very clear, that every single star is perfectly aligned; it might mean you are not driving fast enough.”

Delivering additional remarks for the evening were: Professor Brian Copeland, Pro-Vice Chancellor and Campus Principal at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus and Chairman of the Board of Directors at the Lok Jack GSB and Valedictorian Mrs. Giselle Landeau- Birmingham of the MBA in Sustainable Energy Management programme.
