Congratulations to the Caribbean Americans who have worked to ensure the significant contribution of the peoples of the Caribbean to the USA is observed and celebrated.
We join you in celebrating June 2020 as National Caribbean-American Heritage Month.
We celebrate the works of those who delivered the impact that made the observation justified through their different contributions. Whether the helped to build brand USA, secure its people, make it a better place, or advance progress towards the delivery of the American dream without their contribution there would be nothing to celebrate.
We therefore thank Caribbean Americans who deliver the benefits of immigration to both host and home countries. Immigrants and their descendants who through sharing their cultures enrich the ones they joint and help to spawn and grow innovation and innovative solutions. We celebrate those who through their presences have erased mistrust, assumptions, fallacies, and misinformation that drives suspicion and devices among people from different places and with diverse cultural practices or skin colour.
Congratulations and thanks to Andrew Sharpe and Authentic Caribbean Foundation for ensuring June is celebrated as National Caribbean American month in Massachusetts.
We thank the US Government for officially recognizing the contribution of the people of Caribbean descent. A people whose culture and contribution is so different that one cannot accurately spell BAME without the “C”. Let us get it right and in celebrating Caribbean include all the ethnic groups of the Caribbean who have contributed to one of the most solid and diverse culture there is on earth—from music to cuisine, to languages and to the very features of its people.
Let us dedicate this month to celebrating, highlighting, owning, and observing, but also to advancing plans and actions for driving social and economic development and increased levels of community impact by not some but by all Caribbean Americans.
Let us turn the magnifying glasses on problems and our minds, strategies, plans, hands, and resources on solutions that demonstrate the symbols of freedom, independence, and the capacity to self-determine. To prevail against all odds together even as we contribute as to building home and host countries.
As a Caribbean corporate citizen, Magate Wildhorse Inc., looks forward to playing its part in collaboration with our partners, clients, Caribbean Entrepreneurs, and families in the USA.
Coincidence can be great. Minutes before the release of the proclamation we stopped to remind the work that we are there to serve from New York.
Make this a happy, entertaining, and productive observation and celebrations.
We are here to play a role in strengthening businesses, entrepreneurs, departments of government and non-profit organizations. In sharing the Caribbean culture and of course getting involved in the virtual parties. Don’t miss the next three in our Outride: COVID 19 Business Threat Seminar it might just be the solution for helping you with your pivot.

For Immediate Release
Magate Wildhorse Consulting Announces US Operations
Canadian Strategy and International Development Consultancy expands to the U.S. with its top-notch organizational effectiveness solutions
Toronto, Canada―Known for relevant and collaborative consulting and execution solutions, the Strategy and International Development Practice announces the launch of its first U.S. operations.
The company brings its top-notch, affordable solutions across the border to New York― its US-based home. Magate Wildhorse offers a full menu of strategy and improvement solutions. Included in its service offer are corporate strategy, *performance (PMM), marketing, trade, private sector development and environment-related solutions.
“Establishing a presence in the US has been on the table for sometime now”, said Meegan Scott, founder of Magate Wildhorse. “The team―including our board and partnering associates are fired-up by the opportunity to serve US-based clients in-market in addition to virtually”.
The company is focused on doing more work in international trade, trade finance, climate finance strategy planning, and related execution support. High on its list of interest are research, design and coaching of teams in network entities who are delivering climate finance strategy solutions.
Among the solutions that the company offers to government departments, international development partners, donors, executives, NGOs and businesses are:
- market systems development
- measurement and reporting on results for private sector development programmes
- entrepreneur capacity building
- organizational assessments
- post implementation reviews
- one-on-one strategic execution coaching and consulting
- program management support
- and corporate strategy planning.
“Hidden gem services” include the organizational effectiveness and Public-Private Partnership (PPP) combo, designed to help governments to finance critical sectors and key development initiatives that lay stuck in the funnel because of inadequate funding. Near solutions are also available to private sector entities.
Governments looking to strengthen their investment strategy plans and to grow Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) will also find tailored-to-fit and affordable options.
The “creative director and design solutions” for packaging, events and toy making is among the exciting new decade of the ’20s solutions that have been rolled out by the company. That service desk is backed by an award winning, 10-year veteran with significant experience serving Asian markets.
Commodity traders, financial institutions and law firms involved in international trade finance, development strategy and policy will gain benefits and cost savings from utilizing available backstopping services.
While the company expects the bulk of its business in New York to come from government, NGOs and organizations involved in international development, it has developed a menu of solutions for Caribbean and African diaspora organizations and their leaders. Among them are non-profit corporate strategy planning, programme planning, evaluation and learning, behavior change marketing and organizational assessments.
Prospective clients can expect an adjunct team or individual expert to help them get to root cause and problem identification or both; help with finding solutions, alternatives or recommendations that they co-develop and own. Solutions come with strategic communication for ensuring shared understanding, commitment and action that drives change and strategy delivery.
“Now that we can sit across the table in the same location, US based clients can feel more confident in our local presence and commitment to serving them”, said Scott.
Like Magate Wildhorse Ltd in Toronto, Magate Wildhorse Inc., New York is synonymous with the key words “quality, affordability, relevance, evidence-based, and results-driven”.
*Performance (PMM), organizational performance management and measurement
