Inner-City Youth Get Social Graces Workshop


Social Graces WorkshopIt was fine dining at the Re-Birth Project recently, where 20 students from the Tivoli Gardens and Norman Manley High School, along with their parents, were treated to a three-course meal as a practical simulation during their dining etiquette workshop.

The Re-Birth Project, launched in March is a specially designed, nine-week intervention initiative by marketing consultancy MC&Associates, formerly CBS Ltd, aimed at reducing and preventing delinquency of at-risk teenagers. Through the involvement of parents, the schools, expertise of select resource persons plus interaction with successful executives, entrepreneurs and motivational speakers, the programme utilizes development workshops to help the youth build resilience while encouraging them to strive for excellence. Having dealt with self-esteem, goal-setting, avoiding distraction on the streets, anger and conflict management, the Project's eighth session focused on 'Personal Development for Career Success', equipping the participants (parents and students) for success in business and socially.


Purposeful Alignment: Providing The Key To Sustainable Success


Trevor Hamilton at the University of GuyanaAligning natural strengths, personality and characteristics to job choice can be the key to determining personal and business success, says Dr. Ainsley Deer, Jamaican Psychologist and International Management Consultant.

“When talent is not aligned with the right scholastic courses, school or job, it can sometimes manifest as: failure, consistently low grades, people who are disengaged from the learning/work process, maladaptive behaviour, poor on the job performance, increased sick-days/absenteeism, pressure on a nation’s healthcare system, low productivity levels and decreased company profits,” Dr. Deer explained. Trained in the UK, Dr. Deer is a leading trainer, motivational speaker, researcher and consultant with more than 20 years experience as an Employee Assistance/Staff Wellness Provider for multinational organizations including Johnson and Johnson, British Airways, and the Inter-American Development Bank.
