The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Commission is pleased to announce the first event of the 2021 Sustainable Development Movement (SDM) agenda – The CEO Breakfast – on Friday, February 26th 2021.

The free virtual event, held under the theme “More Disruptions. Solid Innovations. Necessary Agility. Inclusion for All”, is poised to attract over 2,000 C-Suite Executives, Development Partners, Private Sector entrepreneurs and investors, Academia, Caribbean Governments, Civil Society, and Individual leaders from across the Caribbean region and internationally.

In addition to the unveiling of the OECS Development Agenda, key issues to be addressed include:

What keeps CEOs up at night in the wake of the current pandemic?

The “Now” is Agile: Are Small Island Development States Ready for this “Now”?

Against the backdrop of a global crisis, Director General of the OECS, Dr. Didacus Jules, underscored the urgent need for the region to focus on economic growth and innovation (in keeping with the United Nation’s SDGs 8 and 9):

“It is paramount for organisations of every size, creed and mandate (both public and private sector) to take a compelling and active look at the ingredients needed for perpetual success in an ever-changing global environment. Every single aspect of life, business, and being must be completely rethought for both short-term survival and long-term success.”
