Hospitality 25th Anniversary Awards Event…

Celebrate what you want to see more of

Tom Peters

It’s such a beautiful feeling when dreams come through. This impactful organization (HHRABC) had never celebrated its over 25 years of industry contribution. It was such a delight to work with the board to make this dream a reality.

Among the leaders recognized were Florida Atlantic University’s Dr Peter Ricci, Attorney Bob Turk, Hotelier & Author Charles Ryan Minton, Labor and Employment Attorney David Miklas, Florida’s Department of Defense (DoD) Peter Caspari along with HHRABC President and Board members throughout the years.

As Vice President for the past four years, it was indeed a joy to dream of this celebration and to see it come through.

Life’s achievements are to be celebrated.

Books. Music And Culture Comes Alive With Vibes…

Book signings. New York. Jamaica. Jerk festival. Cultural events and more. A strong-behind-the-scenes supporter of the legendary reggae music matriarch, Miss Pat invited me to all since I too am an author of 9 books on Success and have been with her from the birth of the idea for her own book titled My Reggae Music Journey. In the end I accepted attending her book signing in Jamaica not realizing that it would be held on my BIRTHDAY.

The evening was divine. Indeed it was an event to remember. Dr Carolyn Cooper shared snippets of her own vision and journey to the creation of the
institute of CAribbean studies Mona and Reggae. A story of Success and one to emulate.

Superbly led, the evenings host Professor Donna Hope was a class act and created moments that had the audience laughing out loud.

It was an honor to have met and spent time in the presence of Maria…. Art Designer and Exhibitor from Greece. She was always there as we selected the cover designed for Miss Pat’s book. Her talent and humility are beyond words. Not to mention the talents of deceased Michael Thompson whose wife Maria I also met for the first time. She was always in my prayers for the untimely passing of her husband michael. Solemn moment but satisfying as we reflected on Michael’s Legacy.

A delightful moment experienced was my in-person hugs from 2021’s ignite Caribbean’s 30 under 30 Washington DC’s honoree Joelle Powe. If you haven’t seen her newest documentary Beverly Manley Uncensored – you’re missing something. See it on YouTube

Lucky winners walked away with copies of my own book Success Strategies of CAribbean American Leaders.

Missed it? The exhibition continues for the next few weeks. Visit the UWI’s Art & Cultural and prepared to be mesmerized.

Career Fear…

Afraid? Do it anyway

Dr. Shelly C

Changing careers can be hard and extremely stressful. It has been rated just below the death of a friend. Indeed it is a dreaded time of contemplation and decision making.

As such it is always a pleasure to share my knowledge and experience with new Graduates, mid-career changers as well as those battling retirement fears as I will do at the Lauderdale Manor’s Community event.

Here’s to connecting and making a difference in the lives of others.
