“The success of CHIEF (Caribbean Hospitality Industry Exchange Forum) is a reflection of our new vision and a validation that we have moved in the right direction. Besides seeing increased participation from middle management, we are seeing a new generation of hoteliers becoming involved and enthusiastically engaged.” – Emil Lee, President, Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association
“Management sets standards of performance, assumes responsibility for work objectives, initiates focuses and serves as motivators for employees for the purpose of achieving the company goals. Management also aids in the development and growth of its employees.” – Lissa Cuffy, Housekeeping Manager, Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort/ Caribbean Hotel Supervisor of the Year (St. Croix Source)
“We are highlighting the diverse culinary offerings found throughout our islands for Dine V.I. To fully appreciate the wide variety of culinary talent on St. Croix, we needed more than seven days.” – Beverly Nicholson-Doty, Commissioner of Tourism, United States Virgin Islands
“When the OECS (Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States) wins, we all win! If start-up businesses are not able to get off the ground because of a lack of investment finance support, then the country’s potential economic growth suffers commensurately.” – Ronald Ramjattan, CEO, Baron Foods Limited (St. Lucia Times)
“You never know how you impact someone’s life and it takes nothing out of us to be kind. I am happy that I influenced you in the way that you said I did.” – Fae Ellington, Veteran Jamaican Broadcaster (Jamaica Observer)
“Within our employee group we have submitted the challenge of making CAL (Caribbean Airlines) break-even within a three-year period and we are very well on our way to doing that. I would say we would be about 35 to 40 percent on our way there. There is still much work to do and we will, in the next months as all of the initiatives come into play, add considerably to that progress.” – Michael DiLollo, CEO, Caribbean Airlines (Trinidad and Tobago Newsday)
“We have greatness in the Virgin Islands (and) in the Caribbean. I wouldn’t want to be from no other part of the world. Because I feel like part of the reason why (we) do what we do or why people think we (are) great or awesome or special or whatever they think of us in a good way, it’s because of where we’re from.” – Timothy Thomas, Musician, R.
