Adam Stewart

He (Gordon “Butch” Stewart – Chairman of Sandals Resorts International) is a very hands-on chairman. He relinquished a lot of authority…but he is an inspirational leader (who) at the tender age of 74 still gets up every day and puts in an 18-hour day, truly leading from the front. What inspires me and our team about him is his ability to still understand consumers at every level, including millennials. To be able to size them up and figure out what they want. He is as potent as probably he has ever been.” – Adam Stewart, CEO, Sandals Resorts International
“Tourism has a critical role in the advancing the development of T&T. The building of a viable tourism sector requires strong partnerships with the private sector, and most importantly, the inclusion and support of the national community. Although the economy is facing the challenge of volatile energy prices, tourism has proven to be resilient.” – Shamfa Cudjoe, Minister of Tourism, Trinidad and Tobago (Trinidad Express)
“Bringing in more people than our current population is no ordinary feat…and we are not done as yet.” – Dr. Wykeham McNeill, Minister of Tourism and Entertainment, Jamaica (Caribbean360)
“The whole idea of arranging this adventure (Southern Caribbean Challenge) is to allow runners to complete a marathon in as many destinations as they can, and at the cheapest possible price. There are runners who have completed marathons in 80 to 100 countries but none has competed in the U.S. Virgin Islands. These are everyday folks with families and full-time jobs who are keen to attempt challenges that are out of their comfort zones”. – Ziyad Rahim, Founder and CEO, Z Adventures
“All the (Honduran) children treated had very complex cardiac diseases. Had they not received this treatment, they wouldn’t have had much more time. Every child deserves the opportunity to be healthy.” – Dr. Binoy Chattuparambil, Senior Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgeon, Health City Cayman Islands
“You must have a relentless drive for progress to stay successful in life.” – A.R. Bernard, Senior Pastor, Christian Cultural Center
“Eventually, you are going to have to jump. You cannot just exist in this life. You have got to try to live. If you are waking up thinking that there has got to be more to your life than it is, man, believe that it is. Believe in your heart of hearts that it is, but to get to that life, you are going to have to jump.” – Steve Harvey, Comedian, Television Host, Radio Personality, Actor and Author
