‘There has never been a more exciting time to be alive.’
Psychologist, educator and author, Greg Nicholson, brings a wealth of expertise in management, teaching and psychology to his role as Trustee. His educational initiatives have been endorsed by leading universities and schools.
Against this sound background of experience, Greg has played key roles in a number of academic and youth welfare programmes, including The Sir Edward Dunlop Programme of which he was Chairman, and the Ardoch Youth Foundation. He asserts that in this dynamic era where rapid globilisation and advancing technologies are presenting vast opportunities for innovation and 21st century reform, for those nations embracing change, there has never been a more exciting time to be alive.
As director of her health food company, best-selling author and businesswoman, Prue Sobers, created a product range under her own label, winning a gold medal and exporting to Japan. Today, in an international partnership, she co-heads a small company currently exploring the Chinese health food market. In collaboration with her husband, Greg, she also ghost writes and produces Greg’s educational books.
Prue spent much of her young adult years working and travelling abroad. During the heady years of world cricket, Prue and former husband, Sir Garfield Sobers, raised three children whose lives, today, are closely interwoven with the island and its people. She is a citizen of Barbados where she spends a good deal of her time with Greg, devoted to community work with him in recent years.
Trustee, Matthew Garfield Sobers joins Achieve from the US. His broad experience in the hospitality industry, healthcare, business development and education spans two continents. Having been raised and educated partly in Barbados and attending UWI, Matt trained in Management at Almond Beach Resort in Barbados, and later joined Port St Charles Resort as Manager Operations.
He currently lives and works in the US with his young family and is a regular visitor to the island, for which he holds deep affection. As a former tutor of Achieve’s sister organisation in Australia, Matt is very keen for Barbadian youth to gain the benefits of its skill-building programmes and 21st century teaching philosophy.
