SOUTH FLORIDA –Western Union and GraceKennedy will hold their annual town hall series from May 4th to May 8th, 2015 in Canada, New York and Florida under the theme, “The Caribbean Diaspora- Borderless Possibilities.”The keynote speaker for this year’s series is the Most Honourable P.J. Patterson, Former Prime Minister of Jamaica and President of HeisConsults Ltd.

“These forums are very important to us as they provide an excellent opportunity to engage the Caribbean Diaspora – not just to network with our customers and get their feedback but also importantly, to encourage their participation in the discussion about issues that are critical to their home countries.  Their contribution is very valuable as we explore ways to continue the development and promotion of the Caribbean while improving the quality of lives for those who live within the region,” said Michelle Allen, Chief Executive Officer of GraceKennedy Money Services..

This year’s discussion topics include “Corporate Social Responsibility – changing lives, cultivating generations through educational investment, and the importance of obtaining Canadian Citizenship.”  Western Union and GraceKennedy will also share information on their commitment to education and support for the Diaspora.
