Basseterre, St. Kitts, October 15, 2019 (SKNVIBES)

The recently held Lees Leadership retreat has been hailed as an overwhelming success. The first annual LEES Leadership Retreat was held in Old Road at the Railway Bar and Grill organized by Young Leaders of the Americas Alumni and entrepreneur Janeel Boon.“There was a small fear that I had that I am bringing people out of their homes on a holiday…what if people don’t come; what if they come and we don’t meet their expectations,” Boon said. “My biggest concern was it’s a holiday—to see we had maybe about 110 people in attendance, spoke well.

The event was well attended for the first of its kind, and Mr. Boon was very pleased with the outcome. He is already looking at LEES 2020. “We already started planning for 2020 before we got to 2019. For 2020, I can say that it will be on National Heroes Day,” Boon said. He noted that this date was chosen to celebrate, in advance the heroes in the making. “We are looking at you 10 years from now a hero, 10 years from now a legend.
