BIBA’s International Business Week culminated with a bang, as they held a Charity Fun Walk/Run on Saturday.

A successful week of activities in celebration of Barbados International Business Association’s (BIBA) International Business Week, came to an end yesterday with a Charity Fun Walk/Run.

The annual event designed to help Barbadians recognise the contribution the international business sector makes to the local economy, took place from October 16th to 22nd.

Events included a Church Service at Mount of Praise Wesleyan Holiness Church, which started the week of celebrations last Sunday; a Secondary Schools Symposium at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre on October 18th, where fifth and sixth form students were able to learn more about opportunities in the sector;  a Public Discussion Forum at the Tom Adams Financial Centre on the same date, where the topic “International Business: Breaking Down Barriers”, was up for debate; that was followed by a Careers Showcase at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus on October 19th, where some students flipped the script on Loop News reporters and took the lead in front of the camera.

The October 20th and 21st were dedicated the 2016 edition of the International Business Conference, where “Weathering the Perfect Storm: Explore, Evolve and Adapt” was the theme.

It all culminated on Saturday, when the 5 KM Fun Walk/Run took off from Bay Street.
