Pat Hoyos, publisher of 'Who's Who in Barbados Business' and sometime moderator of VOB's 'Down to Brass Tacks', has restarted his monthly Broad Street Journal Breakfast Club. Today, he had Prof. Avinash Persaud speaking on the topic 'The ins and outs of the Four Seasons rescue and its role in upgrading of our tourism sector'.
Just over 30 persons, mainly business executives, and a few journalists, were present at Accra Beach Hotel, from 7.30 am, to hear Prof. Persaud go over some of the background to the recent rescue and his role in that; he spiced things up a little with some look behind the scenes. I wont rehearse the topic here as it has been well covered here and elsewhere over recent weeks.
I welcome opportunities being offered to discuss pertinent topics, so it will be nice if this forum takes off again, albeit with its relatively narrow basis of participants. But, I will try to flag upcoming breakfasts and I am sure that the more interest the better.
