Orane to participate in Miami Book Fair

Published:Tuesday | November 15, 2016 | 11:00 AM

Ian Randle Publishers has announced that author Douglas Orane will be presenting his book, Business of Nation Building, Excerpts from the Selected Speeches of Douglas Orane, at the Miami Book Fair International in a special forum on November 20.

This follows on the heels of successful launches of the book in Kingston, Jamaica, and in London, England, earlier this year.

Orane is well known in business circles locally and internationally, most notably for his 30-year tenure at Jamaican conglomerate GraceKennedy Ltd.

Published in April 2016, Orane presents a collection of excerpts from some of his most moving and inspirational speeches and is suitable for readers of any age.

Covering 17 topics, including entrepreneurship and sports, private- and public-sector management, youth development, women, productivity, leadership, and the diaspora and beyond, Orane's passion and love for his country and prescriptions for its ills are ideal for the advancement of Jamaica.

The excerpts are representations of the poignant principles and practices that have guided Douglas Orane throughout his impressive career in the private sector and in public service, and present a 'glass half-ful' perspective of Jamaica's future and the contribution each individual can make to the country's prosperity.
