Entrepreneurship Solution?

It is important to note that the majority of our population just wants a decent stable income which can fund their own “good” life.   Given the recent government encouragements for persons to pursue entrepreneurship, it would be good to determine what the incentives are.   The failure rate among startups is very high (80% […]

Added Value?

Guyana’s Biggest Challenge to Adding Value: Past, Current & Future Brain Drain. An inventory of Guyana’s varied resources will surely result in us being one of the wealthiest countries per capita, at least on paper. We know that unlocking this wealth requires adding value to our national industries and diversification into more attractive investment opportunities. […]

High Performers

Where do all the high performers in terms of intelligence go? We are very good at driving and grading our students, we make a big deal about their academic achievements every year around this time. Maybe it is time to determine where the top 10% actually ends up. Ideally this 10% should have found itself […]

Mala Culture

Could it be that we spoil our public servants? From the top dog to the front line rep, we neglect to be demanding, critical and to expect more.

How the population deciphers, values and sorts all these messages it will be bombarded […]
