Sagicor Group Jamaica is adding a new dimension to how corporate companies invest in Jamaica’s future by using its Inspire Project to focus on tertiary students who exhibit admirable leadership potential and academic prowess.

This weekend, October 21-23, Sagicor Group Jamaica stages its first motivational event, exclusively for tertiary level students performing at the highest level.

The aim is to engage young, future leaders across Jamaica in a series of exhilarating activities designed for their holistic development. In this the inaugural year, the students will gather at the Hilton Rose Hall in Montego Bay, Jamaica, for a weekend of great empowerment.

"We have been thinking about ways to engage Generation S, but we wanted to ensure that it was done right, so when the idea was conceptualised in one of our team marketing meetings, we knew that it would be a definite fit for the Sagicor brand," said Vice-President of Marketing Ingrid Card via news release.

"We wanted an initiative that would encourage students to embody goals and attitudes that will lead to personal growth and professional discipline," she added.

Approximately 150 students will participate in an event-filled weekend starting Friday.

Friday’s activities will begin with a ‘power hour’ rap session, where members of the Sagicor Group Jamaica leadership team will share stories of success with pockets of students scattered across the Hilton Property. The night will end with "Exhale", the welcome cocktail reception on the beach outfitted with fire pits and a special surprise to intensify the night’s proceedings.

Saturday morning will start with an exercise session on the beach with Karelle Ashley designed to revitalise and kick-start the day, after which they will be engaged in all-day sessions with speakers such as Sagicor’s Top Advisor Loeri Robinson, motivational speaker Michael Maragh, lifestyle doyenne Novia McDonald-Whyte, and Season 4 Apprentice winner, Randal Pinkett. That night will be capped off with "ELEVATE" inside the Cricket Club featuring DJ Smoke.

The weekend will culminate on Sunday morning, when students will meet Sagicor’s President & CEO, Richard Byles, for a motivational breakfast session where he will field questions and share his life lessons as a successful businessman.
