Dr. Glen Laman has written the book on Jamaican entrepreneurship in which he examines the achievements of some outstanding men and women to uncover what they accomplished, how they did it and why they did it.
The book also highlights the historic, social, political and geographic factors which have contributed to the Jamaican economic environment. It is in this context that the author examines the accomplishments of 15 Jamaicans entrepreneurs.
Here's what some readers are saying:
"Dr. Laman has written an extremely entertaining, well-researched and informative book that should be required reading for every young Jamaican (and, indeed, all young people). The book provides both inspiration as well as a road map for achieving entrepreneurial success, using powerful real-live examples of Jamaican success stories. It is a very important and timely addition to the existing literature." - Dr. David Panton, Private Equity Investor and Adjunct Professor, Emory University Goizueta's Business School.
"... his entrepreneurs introduce us to the diverse and essential social, cultural and political elements that underpin the Jamaican experience." - Gloria Hobbins, Founder and President, Global Village Travels.
"the success profiles were real page turners.. should be required reading for every student." - Carole Brown, Retired Educator
"...the lessons I learned from the book kept me going when faith was beginning to waiver and my courage waning." - Maxine McDonnough, Jamaican Epicurean Escape.
"This book will change your attitude about how to never give up and that one can be and do just about anything, if you put your mind to it. Enjoy and be inspired!" - Mauvalyn M. Bowen. PhD, former Head Joan Duncan School of Entrepreneurship, Ethics and Leadership, UTech, Jamaica.
