The rooftop of the Guardian Life Group Building was the preferred spot for a welcome reception for South African (SA) billionaire, Graham Power, founder and chairman of one of that country's leading civil engineering and real-estate development companies, Power Group. For five days, he was the guest of Wycliffe Bible Translators Caribbean in Jamaica. During the business mogul's visit, he introduced his internationally successful Unashamedly Ethical initiative - which promotes ethics in business - to local government, business and church leaders.

Power, who enjoys dancing, started the evening's proceedings with prayer. He spoke briefly of the impact the organisation has been making worldwide. A family man that was, unfortunately, making this trip alone, mentioned the tremendous help he gets from his three children and five grandchildren. Before ending the event, Power handed out pledges to all parties to confirm their commitment to being ethical.
