Olive Strachan, CEO and Founder of OSR Ltd, recently visited the Caribbean in relation to the UKTI Trade Mission. The blog is in 2 parts; the first leg of her mission took Olive to the beautiful country of Barbados….
“Having being born on the beautiful Caribbean Island of Dominica, I have always had the desire to one day work in the Caribbean. With this in mind, we have invested in land with the intention of offering the same training services as we do in the UK, but with a sister company in West Indies. When I received an invitation from the UK Trade & Investment to attend the ‘Caribbean Education & Trade Mission’ to Barbados and Trinidad in March of this year, I jumped at the chance - and for some reason my husband said he would come with me!
"The first stop was Barbados. We stayed at the Accra Beach Resort and Spa, which I would highly recommend!
"On the first day, we were taken to the British High Commission where we received a fantastic welcome and a complete overview of the Political and Economic aspects of Barbados by Victoria Dean, British High Commissioner to Barbados.
"Presentations followed. arranged by Hadford Howell (Head of Trade and Investment from the Caribbean Development Bank) and the University of the West Indies to name a few. It was an action-packed day and we left knowing what opportunities were available to us in Education and Training.
"The following day, Hadford and his team had organised individual meetings with potential partners/buyers. It was a thoroughly interesting, informative and enjoyable trip. As an added bonus, we met some lovely people - a big shout-out to Sue Springer and her team from the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association for making us feel so welcome!
"The following day, we were flying out to Trinidad and Tobago on the next leg of the visit – exciting times ahead. My journey will continue with my August blog..."
