For the eighth consecutive year, a number of small-business
owners are getting free consultations from University College of
the Cayman Islands (UCCI) business students.
This year's entrepreneurs, who are members of the Cayman
Islands Small Business Association (CISBA), are Ms Nina Squires
(Beach Bubbles Cayman), Ms Dawn McLean-Sawney (Arbutus Galley), and
Mr Omar Chambers (Link International Group Ltd).
Cayman National Bank (CNB) is again sponsoring the programme,
which started 23 February, by covering expenses incurred by the
students as part of their consultancy. The student consultancy
programme is a joint initiative between UCCI and the Ministry of
Commerce, said the Ministry's Deputy Chief Officer Tamara
'Previously, it was a partnership between UCCI, and the
Department of Commerce and Investment (DCI)', she noted.
'However, in July last year, DCI increased its focus on
licensing and regulating small business, and the Ministry became
responsible for small business development.
'The Ministry is happy to continue the programme to increase
the practical application of entrepreneurial education, and
together with UCCI, we thank CNB for its sponsorship', she
For the eight-week consultancy, the business owners have been
matched with students who are enrolled in UCCI's upper-level
Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management course.
As she has for the past eight years, UCCI senior lecturer
Annette Murphy is guiding the student consultancy teams. She said
assessments by Ministry and UCCI programme facilitators on the
quality of the students' consultations will be considered as
part of students' final course grades.
Student Catherine Welds said she hoped to perform well in the
'I've always been interested in running my own business,
and doing this course will allow me to really get into what it
takes to be successful', she said.
A number of businesses and students are
taking part in the programme.
