Digital Transformation In The Caribbean- A Complete Overview

Digital transformation in the caribbean

On the last episode of the Dropping Bars podcast, I spoke with Mr. Perry Douglas about Digital Transformation in the Caribbean. We spoke about the misconception that Caribbean people tend to have, which is that Digital Transformation is all about technology. As we discussed, digital transformation is more about a strategic mindset. The transformation starts in our mind, and once Caribbean entrepreneurs, business people, and government officials understand this, we can undergo true digital transformation. We do not have to create the technologies; the technology exists. What we need to do is transform our mindset to understand that we need to embrace and leverage the technologies which will, in turn, transform our business and government institutions.

Here’s What Every Caribbean Parent and Teacher Need To Know About Students Social Media Use

I always write about how businesses can take advantage of opportunities on Social Media. However, there is a side of social media that is having an adverse impact on young people, and they do not even understand what is happening.

The Perfect Social Media Strategy For Caribbean Businesses

Caribbean Social Media Strategy

A few months after moving to Toronto, I went to a networking event for entrepreneurs. I met some fantastic people, some of whom I am still in contact with today. I remember speaking to a business coach at that event; we talked about my business aspirations. I told her I wanted to work with Caribbean entrepreneurs; I felt a need to help them, I felt the Caribbean was getting left behind where Social Media was concerned. The advice I got was, don’t do it, Caribbean entrepreneurs are not a good market if you want to make money. Fast forward a few years, I didn’t listen, I still decided to work with Caribbean entrepreneurs and businesses and even though the advice wasn’t bad advice. I am Grenadian, and home is where the heart is.
