What is the Distinguished Leadership and Innovation Conference (DLIC)?

The Distinguished Leadership & Innovation Conference (DLIC) series is the premier Caribbean leadership conference presented by the Arthur Lok Jack Global School of Business aimed at strengthening the region’s capacity in the areas of leadership and innovation. For the past sixteen years DLIC has become known for inspiring thought-provoking concepts while creating an interactive environment where Caribbean and Latin American Leaders can discuss the challenges and potential solutions for issues faced within this region, making it a “must-attend” event for leaders, business executives and captains of industry across the region.

Offering a unique blend of content delivered by world-renowned leadership speakers, best-selling authors, entrepreneurs, innovators and thought leaders, DLIC presents the opportunity to draw on global best practice and cutting edge concepts in business, stimulating new thinking and motivating action, whilst offering a great opportunity for high-level networking.

DLIC 2019: Reinventing Leadership
through Innovation

In an ever changing global economy riddled with financial downturn, the rise of new markets and startups creating value at unprecedented speeds, challenging the sustainability and even existence of many major players in the market – what can your organisation do to reinvent itself and realise growth, whilst competing against the entrepreneurial spirit that this technology driven era is experiencing? A proven way to stay competitive in any market, is to ignite intrapreneurship within your organisations. i.e introduce “entrepreneurial” practice in your organisation’s leadership.

DLIC 2019 will feature two (2) experts in the areas of leadership and corporate entrepreneurship (intrapreneurship).

Serial Entrepreneur, Hyper-growth CEO, Best-selling Author and the #1 ranked innovation speaker in the world, Josh Linkner will provide a fresh approach to leading and reinventing your organisation through corporate entrepreneurship and deliver a methodology for cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset within your organisation.

Professor Andrew Corbett, Chair of the Entrepreneurship Division at Babson College, USA, the #1 ranked in entrepreneurship by Princeton review will address the fundamental capabilities that firms need to develop in order to drive corporate entrepreneurship within their organisations and explain best practice on how to design/re-design your organisation, roles and people to continually allow for strategic corporate innovation.

Join us on May 6th at the Hyatt Regency, Port of Spain as we ignite an intrapreneurial spirit within our organisations and Reinvent Leadership through Entrepreneurship!
