“I am most impressed with this Director Survey from PwC Barbados. It’s a big survey from a small island -and remarkably honest with 30% not seeing their main role as ensuring the success of the business and 35% not seeing the need for further development. I commend Roneale Dathorne-Bayrd and her team for having the courage to publish and hope that this shall be a model for other countries to follow.”  Bob Garratt
