For those persons looking for inspiration to navigate the major shifts of 2020 or who are just looking for ways to improve professionally and personally, there is a new master class series being launched in the Cayman Islands.
“The Speakers Series – Caribbean Master Classes” is an online master class programme which started September 8th by Annick Jackman, the 2018 Caribbean Toastmasters Speech Champion and coach.
It is a series of free virtual sessions being offered to the public on a variety of topics from storytelling to leadership to even personal reinvention.
The Speakers Series will run twice per month and is based on conversations between Ms. Jackman as the series host and special guests from around the Caribbean region. The audience can also join the conversation through the virtual chat and interact with the guests.
“I have always been fascinated by the concept of master classes but felt it important to launch this series with a focus on the incredible talent and wealth of experience connected to or from our region. We have some of the most dynamic personalities in the Caribbean who can teach us so much!” says Ms. Jackman.
The first master class launched with a discussion on how storytelling techniques can significantly transform ordinary presentations and featured Mr. Henry Muttoo, Artistic Director for the Cayman National Cultural Foundation. Interested persons can view this class (Everybody is a Storyteller) on Annick Jackman's YouTube channel.
The second episode, happening September 29th, will turn the spotlight on Frank E Flowers (an award winning filmmaker also from the Cayman Islands) for a conversation on how we can learn to navigate major shifts, based on his experience with film production and also on the value of our Caribbean stories.
2020 has been a dynamic and unpredictable year; these classes will provide an opportunity for persons to reinvent and retool themselves. Interested persons are encouraged to register for the session on http://bit.ly/rewritingourstories or contact Annick for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
