Sandra Glasgow, chief executive officer of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ), will host a specially produced television series which will recognise 50 of Jamaica's leading civic and business leaders under the age of 50.
The television programme has been developed by one of the main sponsors of the event, Columbus Communications Jamaica Limited, the operator of the Columbus Business Solutions and Flow brands. It is built around The Gleaner/PSOJ 50UnderFifty Award.
Dubbed 'Conversations with 50UnderFifty', each episode, which is presented as a discussion among four or five of the awardees, grouped in sector or industry categories, will be shown exclusively on Flow TV starting today.
Conversations with 50UnderFifty will be seen in episodes titled 'The Shot Callers', 'The Producers', 'The Innovators', 'The Entrepreneurs', 'The Imaginators', 'The Power Brokers', 'The Educators', 'The Financiers', 'The Leisure Tycoons' and 'The Game Changers'.
A new episode will premiere each week on Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Flow TV Channel 100, with repeats on Sundays at 5:30 p.m. and Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
Glasgow expects that Conversations with 50UnderFifty will make interesting and compelling viewing as it presents some inspiring stories.
"These are truly some remarkable individuals ... creative and fearless," she says.
Glasgow noted that "our business leaders are unearthing new focus in their business and it bodes well for our economy".
"I am pleased with the awardees who are all brilliant, creative thinkers, willing to take the risks necessary to move this great nation forward."
The Gleaner/PSOJ 50UnderFifty Award recognises the 50 influencers who, based on their current contributions to the country, are expected to make a significant impact on Jamaica's civic and business landscape over the next 50 years and beyond.
