Cabinet Holds Retreat To Strengthen Good Governance

4
CABINET ROOM, June 2019
For the second time in a three-month period, the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda and a few policymakers had the benefit of a four-hour interactive retreat, on Saturday, 1st February, 2020, where the subject areas examined and analyzed related to corporate governance principles and the exercise of quality decision-making.
 
The retreat was conducted by a Canadian professor, named Chris Bobb, whose abilities are well-known, who is highly respected, and who has also been lecturing to Antigua and Barbuda civil servants, and has won applause from both private and public managers within the CARICOM region for his insightful work. The professor has agreed to develop a series of interactive lectures for Permanent Secretaries within the Ministries; and, he has also agreed to seek to deliver lectures at U.W.I. Five Islands, if that is acceptable.
 
The session today began at 9:30 am and continued through to 1:30 pm. The Prime Minister reminded all those present that life-long learning is now the requirement in our globalized world, and that even the best lawyers, judges and other professionals in many developed countries are required to take “continuing education courses”, in order to remain in good standing.
 
Risk-taking in governance, including risk-tolerance and risk-transference; good boardroom practices that have been dictated by courts, following shareholder lawsuits in the US and Canada; excellent communication skills that result in perfect execution of directives; and, a plethora of subjects that will lead to creating an Antigua and Barbuda economic powerhouse.
 
The Cabinet retreat was applauded by all members. Before the end of Summer 2020, another retreat will likely be held to ensure even greater performance by the Gaston Browne administration. The Cabinet invites experts to its sessions every week in order to strengthen decision-making quality.

  1. LOL the Cab-Sec hair match he jacket 🙂

    But seriously, I hope all will be DOERS and not just hearers of the word. Good luck.

    AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING, SO SHALL IT BE IN THE END…

    “The retreat was conducted by a Canadian professor, named Chris Bobb, whose abilities are well-known, who is highly respected, and who has also been lecturing to Antigua and Barbuda civil servants, and has won applause from both private and public managers within the CARICOM region for his insightful work.” – “Oh Gad!” Joanne Hillhouse! As Mi Gud Fren Ras Smood wud say: OhMiRass!

    “he has also agreed to seek to deliver lectures at U.W.I. Five Islands, if that is acceptable.” That says it all and should have been the end of that! The PM is more insightful and discerning!

    In this the International Decade for People of African Descent 2015 – 2024, how is it possible that GoAB could not find a Caribbean Professor Emeritus or Professor of Government of African Descent in the Caribbean or the Diaspora! This has got to be a Water Dream at devil’s Bridge where our Ancestors practiced their efforts to master their powers of Conduction!

    From The Aramaic Text: So they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “The only place a prophet isn’t honored is in his hometown and in his own house.” – Matthew 13:57!

    • Brethren currently CGTI is really the only offer. ECCB started something but from what I am seeing its dead on arrival. Perhaps you can blame me, but I also encouraged others to go with CGTI since they are already up and running. Lisa Charles has been successful in getting regional leaders to embrace CGTI. Recall my first class with them and the ECCB bank governor saluting them. Anyway the man’s name is Dr. Chris Bart
