BRADES, Montserrat -- Feb. 11, 2011 – A regional
entrepreneur’s conference, YES Caribbean, is coming to the island of Montserrat

Golden, YES Caribbean 2011 is for entrepreneurs who are ready to launch their
first enterprise or more established business owners who want to expand beyond
their present borders.
“Montserrat has been given a unique
opportunity to rebrand, redevelop and reinvent itself in the 21st
Century. The private sector is one area that has great potential for
development and we believe that hosting this conference here will assist in bringing
new ventures to life,” says Golden.
YES brings together more experienced
Caribbean entrepreneurs to teach seminars and workshops to aspiring business
people and other entrepreneurs from around the region. “It is an awesome time
for networking and building new partnerships, as well as identifying
entrepreneurs that can benefit from more one on one support to advance their
venture,” added Golden who held the first event in 2006 on St. Maarten.
YES Caribbean will include Master
Classes in video production, acting, dance, and fashion as well as special
sessions for leaders of industry and government on developing a film commission
for Montserrat, transitioning workers from the public to private sector, and taking
advantage of the OECS Economic Union and the CARICOM Single Market &
“The entire region is in transition
and people and governments are searching for new ways to cut costs and increase
revenue. YES Caribbean will provide opportunities for people to network and
market their services to show they have skills that are transferrable to other
islands and other markets,” said the host.
