NASSAU, BAHAMAS — HubertEdwardsGlobal has announced the selection of its 2020 Leadership Excellence Award nominees. This year, the awards are to be made in memory of Dr Myles Munroe, former senior pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries, author, international speaker and trainer.
The 2020 awardees are Joan Albury, CEO of the Counsellors Limited; Pastor Mario Moxey, senior pastor of Bahamas Harvest Church; and Felix Stubbs, past district governor, business executive and philanthropist — three Bahamians representing resilient, quiet, determined and giving leadership.
“These three individuals epitomize our philosophical underpinning of ubuntu,” stated Hubert Edwards. “Ubuntu demands that we see our individual existence in the well-being of others. It means ‘I am because we are’. It is without question that our 2020 awardees are, in their own unique ways, living examples of the essence of this thinking”.
Edwards is the founder of HubertEdwardsGlobal and Success Summit. The three awardees will be recognized at the Summit.
Albury, Moxey and Stubbs have contributed to The Bahamas in multiple and important ways. As the visionary founder of the Business Outlook and a pioneer in the media space, Albury has a record of selfless contribution that is unmatched in many ways. Moxey has supported causes at the national level and has used his platform as an influential religious leader to influence the lives of many through community projects while helping to foster the growth and development of many. Stubbs is a quiet giant who has given national service in numerous ways. As a Rotarian, he has contributed to assisting others beyond the borders of The Bahamas. His philanthropic efforts are well known even as he continues to provide exemplary contribution in the field of business.
In 2019, the first cohort of Leadership Excellence Award recipients were Barry Rassin, immediate past president of Rotary worldwide; Ricardo P. Deveaux, founder of the Primary School Student of the Year Awards Foundation; and Anthony J. Longley, director of Toastmasters International.
“We are both proud and humbled to have such caliber of individuals nominated and willing to accept this award. Their acceptance is an important endorsement of our vision and our efforts to date.”
The fourth edition of Success Summit will be held virtually this year on December 5, 2020, under the theme “Beyond the Crisis — Leadership Against the Odds”. The Summit that started in 2017 unveiled a number of changes as it continues to signal serious maturation and important progressive steps towards its stated objective of becoming the premier leadership, growth and personal development event in The Bahamas and the Caribbean region.
Edwards stated emphatically, during its inaugural launch, “this Success Summit will become a signature conference on the local calendar and within the Caribbean”. The growth demonstrated in less than three years underlines the seriousness of that statement.
In 2017, the organization contributed to The Pilot Club of Nassau towards the building of a therapeutic pool for the disabled. In 2019, it conducted two school tours to Jamaica and, in collaboration with one of those Jamaican schools, contributed to Freeport Primary School following damage from Hurricane Dorian. The organization also “adopted” the Dream Chasers Boys Club at CI Gibson High School and has in each year facilitated the attendance of members to the Summit. In February 2020, it conducted a third school tour to Jamaica and the launch of a scholarship grant program at Brown’s Town High School.
