The Dr. Vibe Show

On September 24, 2011, we have the opportunity to attend The Excellence Conference. The Excellence Conference was aimed at students between the ages 11 to 17 and their parents. It featured successful members of the Canadian Caribbean Community who gave career advice and guidance, touching on things like career path, level of education required, scope for upward mobility, and critical success factors for owning and operating your own business. The motivation for the conference was the low number of Caribbean students who are planning to go university or higher education need guidance. After four individual presentations by teachers to parents in the morning, a Q & A session was held in which parents asked the teachers questions. We have the Q & A session for your listen pleasure.
