keynote speaker at the June 21, 2012 Caribbean Heritage CACCI-Brooklyn celebration breakfast was Lowell Hawthorne, founder
and CEO of Golden Krust, which he refers to as GK.
GK is a
manufacturing operation with 1700 stores, and a huge creator of jobs and
wealth in Caribbean communities.
I met Lowell at the 2009 CACCI Christmas
party" a quiet, thoughtful man from Jamaica.
What impressed me about him
then is that he was not surrounded by handlers or sycophants, and is
clearly a serious man of deep faith that translates into understanding
that he has been given the ability to work hard for good.
Listen to him

New York through to today, click here.
