Outstanding Barbadian to Deliver the 31st Sir Winston Scott Memorial Lecture

A Barbadian, who has distinguished himself in the field of management at the international level, will deliver the 31st Sir Winston Scott Memorial Lecture at the Frank Collymore Hall on Monday, November 27, 2006 at 8:00 p.m.

He is Dr. Carlisle Boyce, Executive Director, Industrial and Transportation Business of 3M Asia Pacific.   He oversees the company’s Asia Pacific business from his base in Singapore.  3M is a Fortune 500 Company with operations in more than 60 countries.

Dr. Boyce will speak on the topic, “Asia Pacific as an Emerging Economic Powerhouse:  Implications for Barbados and the Caribbean Region”.

As Barbados seeks to expand its markets and attract new investment flows, it is a distinct honour to have someone of the international experience of Dr. Boyce to speak to us on the occasion of the Sir Winston Scott Memorial Lecture and the country’s 40th Anniversary of Independence.  This is particularly opportune as we recognise that Asia Pacific offers numerous new business opportunities. “This lecture by Dr. Boyce, a Barbadian who has excelled in management and who has worked as a senior official in a multinational corporation in Asia, should provide us with useful insights into doing business in Asia and with ideas on how to capitalize on new opportunities,” Governor of the Central Bank of Barbados, Dr. Marion Williams commented.

Dr. Boyce has so distinguished himself at management level that he was appointed to the 3M Executive Conference, the exclusive and prestigious collection of the company’s top executives whose attainments represent the production for the company of US$1.5 billion.

Apart from his involvement at 3M, the outstanding Barbadian finds time to maintain an active membership in several professional associations, including the Chemical Institute of Canada, the American Chemical Society, and the Canadian Research Management Association. He also sits on the Board of Directors of 3M India. 

The Sir Winston Scott Memorial Lecture, which is sponsored by the Central Bank of Barbados, is held in November each year in honour of Barbados’s first native governor general and in celebration of the country’s Independence.
