Personal Empowerment Seminars

January 11, 2012

Business Bermuda will be hosting a line-up of Personal Empowerment Seminars for 2012. Kicking off the series tomorrow [Jan.12] at 12:30 pm, is “Think Education Ends With a Degree?” Dr. Janet Ferguson, Executive Director of the Seniors’ Learning Centre at Bermuda College will explain the value of lifelong learning.

“Education is more than a degree. Come and explore why we must commit to life-long learning in order to negotiate the complex demands of Bermuda’s 21st century world of work,” urges Dr. Ferguson.

“Business Bermuda’s Local Awareness Committee has done an excellent job of following the very popular 2011 luncheon seminar series with a more impressive line up of topics and speakers for 2012,” says Cheryl Packwood, CEO of Business Bermuda.

“From professors to business executives, 2012′s seminars promise to be exciting and informative and, as always, complementary for anyone who chooses to attend.”
