Chief Executive Officers’ and Leadership Conference
Theme: Leadership Matters: Living and Learning Through Disruption and Dislocation
The past two (2) years have proven that disruption and dislocation are inevitable, as the world grappled with a relentless pandemic, several natural disasters, social and political unrest, and a myriad of other difficulties. In such perilous and uncertain times, there has been a resounding call for leaders at the organisational level and beyond to provide the direction, foresight, clarity and most importantly, a roadmap for navigating the ominous circumstances presented therein.
While organisations often focus on internal matters such as employee retention, productivity, client satisfaction and strategy development and implementation, external factors such as those mentioned above can have long-lasting and negative impacts on their stability and survival. Moreover, stakeholders such as the media, the public, customers, and investors are increasingly monitoring how an organisation’s leaders manage and mitigate such negative impacts, while maintaining the firm’s corporate image and identity and overall ethical mandate. Therefore, it is no surprise that amidst this constant external chaos, solid leadership is needed and tremendously critical to a corporation’s continued success. This leadership is particularly vital to the growth and development of the Caribbean’s energy sector, with the ongoing transition to renewable and sustainable energy.
Disruption is defined as ‘disturbance or problems which interrupt an event, activity or process; while dislocation can be described as ‘disturbance from a proper, original or usual place or state’ (Oxford University Press, 2022). Disruption and dislocation often have a cause-and-effect relationship or can occur in tandem. Within the energy sector, several factors may result in disruption and dislocation for organisations. These include government regulations, natural disasters resulting in power outages, transmission and distribution system failures, resistance to renewable energy initiatives and political interference. The CEOs & Leadership conference will feature elite regional and international leaders of electric utility and energy-affiliated organisations who have successfully navigated these and other complex circumstances and are keen on presenting their expertise and knowledge on effective leadership. This conference will be CARILEC’s first face-to-face event since 2019 and so, we aim to provide the utmost value to all our attendees. Join us for first-class leadership experience!

This conference is targeted towards CEOs of regional energy and energy solution providers, VPs, and SVPs of regional and multinational organisations.
