Episode 9: Innovate or we will suffocate!

“The world is moving forward, even though we’re staying still. And we may look and see the world moving, and it’s getting smaller and smaller. It’s not because it’s doing less and less but that it’s going further and further away.”

This episode features Barbadian Building Inspector and Fire Safety Designer, Troy Ward. Troy lends his over 15 years experience in the fire industry to a discussion on the amalgamation of logistics and fire safety design as an innovative means to help the Caribbean to perfect its investment allure, increase competitiveness and create a more diverse pool of skillsets that can potentially be exported to the international market. We also tackle the question: Can we use policy to force our people to innovate?
