Other speakers include the Honorable Floyd Green, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information; Valrie Grant, the founder of GeoTechVision and the Commonwealth Woman Entrepreneur of the Year, who was awarded the JCC Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for 2014; and Nicole McLaren-Campbell, the founder of AIMS Educational Service.
