What a transition to a new day?
It was 12:56 PM on June 2, 2020 when we received the invitation to participate in the #Eval4Action Global Marathon of Engagement via Email from the IOCE Network.
Knowing the urgency and importance of the initiative we did not hesitate.
After all, since April 16, 2020 we have been supporting Caribbean and diaspora business leaders with responding to the coronavirus pandemic and how to exit COVID 19 with stronger more risk intelligent competent businesses.
It fact, it all began on April 2, 2020 with the help of the media when Meegan Scott shared the article Beyond Risk Management, Stay on Top COVID 19 https://www.caribdirect.com/beyond-risk-management-stay-on-top-covid-19/
Our participants include leaders of mission-driven and profit-driven organizations, media, members and change makers within the Jamaican and Caribbean diaspora leaders based in Canada, the USA and UK as well as other stakeholders and supporters.
Our Outride COVID 19: Business Threat Seminar series are inclusive. Entrepreneurs from mainstream groups worldwide, Africa, Asia, Europe, the Pacific, North America have been invited to join. We run no wire fence related to size, scale, colour, or origin. Our presenters also reflected our position on inclusiveness and unity for driving economic recovery and the SDGs.
On early outcome of the series among others Jamaica Stock Exchange to Develop Pooled Funds for Driving Diaspora Investment in Productive Capital .
As June 2. 2020 slipped into June 3 submitting our expression of interest to join and one to partner was a done deal. With our submission receipt security tucked away we inquired about the need to wait for additional green light for getting on the job of delivering our commitment. We got that green light and there has been no turning back.
Today, June 9, 2020 is 1 day before the #Eval4Action Global Marathon of Engagement. Coincidentally, it is also 1 day less than a week since we submitted our expression of interest to partner and commenced our support for the initiative.
We are delighted by every minute spent sharing the message.
Won’t you join?
10 June 2020, 1-3pm GMT, 9-11am ET
Everyone can join!
Don’t forget we will be adding one extra special session in support of this initiative to our Outride: COVID 19 Seminar for June 11, 2020. There was another evaluation related session slotted in before we joined the campaign.
