Fairy tale visit

Princess Royal goes to Pinehill Dairy

The social graces of British royalty were on display today at Pinehill Dairy as Queen Elizabeth II second child and only daughter graced its floors and got a rare glimpse into the company’s milk production process.

Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal Princess Anne led a team from the Caribbean-Canada Emerging Leaders Dialogue (CCELD) on a tour of the Pine Road, St Michael dairy manufacturing plant to learn more about the company and get an overview of the operations and the changes it has undergone over the years.

Following the tour the group engaged management of the country’s largest milk processing firm in a question and answer session.

The tour formed part of a two-week study tour programme of the CCELD 2015 that involves pair leaders from around the world visiting different countries and interacting with officials of various organizations.

In addition to the Pinehill Dairy, the 12-member team met with community leaders and visited the Barbados Parliament, the Ministry of Labour, the Barbados Workers Union (BWU), charitable organizations and some financial institutions.

Chairman of the board of Banks Holdings Limited (BHL) and Pinehill Anthony King in welcoming the group said the tour came at an opportune time as the dairy company prepares to celebrate 50 years of operation in 2016. He also commended the effort to expose future leaders to the world of work.

“Taking the best professionals from a cross of industries and immersing them in various cultures while exposing them to a range of workforce cultures is what is needed to solidify and strengthen the future talent which will make a difference to work forces in the future,” King said.

The CCELD aims to develop the leadership skills needed for a fast-changing and interconnected world through its in-field dialogue by moving emerging leaders out of the classroom and into communities and workplaces.

It says this allows them exposure to a range of issues from multiple perspectives; to see beyond the scope of their regular context in their own organizations and geography; to collaborate with teammates and make leadership decisions in a real time setting and to be better, more confident leaders.

Similar tours are taking place in Grenada, the Bahamas, Dominica Republic and Trinidad and Tobago. The groups are expected to meet in Jamaica where they will culminate their regional visit.

The theme for CCELD 2015 theme is Leading Through Innovation and Transformation.

    Stupppessss…… What’s fairy tale about it? A bunch of slave owning aristocrats that got fat from drinking the blood of my ancestors and wont pay back a cent in restitution for their colonial plundering. Neo-colonialism at its finest….

      Menace, how do you mean “What’s fairy (the) tale about”? The woman is a Princess. Remember the fairy tales we read as children: THE ENCHANTED PRINCESS, THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA, THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG.

      At least we those stories brought us reading pleasure. These real life princesses and princess just seem to be walking around looking to make themselves relevant.
