FREEPORT, GRAND BAHAMA — BTC was proud to serve as a title sponsor of The Platform, a recent event held in Grand Bahama on January 27, which focused on fostering the growth of next-generation leaders with a special focus on high school students.

BTC’s Executive Senior Manager for Grand Bahama, Dominic Petty, was a special guest at The Platform event, held at The Rand Nature Centre. He was accompanied by BTC’s Senior Marketing Associate, Leteasha Lord, and Senior Associate of People, Keturah Williams. 

In his address to attendees, Petty noted that The Platform event provided a unique opportunity for young people to engage with experienced business professionals. 

“BTC, with its deep-rooted commitment to technology and belief in the potential of our youth, is enthusiastic about contributing to the development of future leaders,” Petty said.  “In Grand Bahama, BTC is specifically focused in actively engaging with the community and giving back in multiple ways.”

BTC’s Keturah Williams also spoke at The Platform event, leveraging her wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of human resources to give students valuable advice on how to craft effective resumes and prepare for interviews.

“I am pleased with how the session went. It was very interactive, and the information given was well received,” Williams said. “The information shared will allow students to prepare a more professional resume and be better prepared for an interview when they enter the job market.”

Meanwhile, Founder of The Platform, Felix Bowe, Jr, said that hosting The Platform was a vision that was birthed four years ago after wanting to bring together experienced professionals and the youth of Grand Bahama, having them both glean valuable information from each other. 

“The Platform brings together Grand Bahamas leading top-level executives and CEOs across the corporate divide as well as young professionals, entrepreneurs, and disruptors in the various fields of construction and trade, tourism, business, law, accounting, health, and a host of other areas that are untapped,” Bowe said.  

The target audience for this year’s Platform was grade 12 seniors of Grand Bahama High Schools.
