Countdown to DLIC 2018
About The DLIC 2018
The Distinguished Leadership and Innovation Conference (DLIC) is the premier leadership event in the Caribbean, presented by the Arthur Lok Jack Global School of Business with the aim of strengthening the region’s capacity in the areas of leadership and innovation. Second to none, the event solicits between 400 – 600 leaders and captains of industry, throughout the region from both public and private sectors, NGOs and Academia.
In its 16th year, this annual event is known for inspiring thought-provoking concepts while creating an interactive environment for Caribbean and Latin American Leaders to discuss the challenges, and potential solutions, for the region. Over the years, DLIC has adhered to its commitment to sharing proven success theories, inspiring innovative leadership, and creating a path for the development of our leaders by providing a platform for great thinkers to impart valuable knowledge. Renowned gurus, such as Ram Charan, John Kotter, Professor Michael Porter, Malcolm Gladwell, Marcus Buckingham, Daniel Pink, Tom Peters, Peter Senge, and Donald Sull, have graced the DLIC stage in the past.
In 2017 we kept our promise to deliver excellence and presented not one, or two, but three world-renowned speakers – Jim Collins, Sir Ken Robinson, Professor Pankaj Ghemawat.
In 2018 we keep the momentum with Professor Luke Williams.

About DLIC 2018
Against an economic landscape of uncertainty, considering the recent retrenchments across sectors throughout the last couple years, and a grim outlook with little to no promise of economic growth, both public and private sector organisations are feeling the grip of recession.
Given the current environment scenario, DLIC 2018 will provide very timely solutions. The proposed theme is very apt to the current market climate and will highlight the strategies for turning around a company on the brink of insolvency, show how to maintain stability and recalibrate companies to stay ahead of the game.
