Scotia insights
an original web series.

The Scotia insights series was first launched 
in February 2016.

The series is meant to bring a sense of deep understanding and awareness. Featured guest speakers give the audience insight into their expertise and the audience is then encouraged to ask questions and engage in insightful discussions. Each time we host a new episode, we hope our invitees will be inspired to make significant adjustments in their lives and the way they operate business.

Whether this means to determine a new path or follow a lifelong dream, it is important to us that we, at Scotiabank help our customers evolve. 

Up next.

The new Caribbean economy and you.

As borders consider reopening, a partnership between governments and the tourism industry is essential.  Join us as we explore where the global economy is going and what tourism based economies have been doing to generate income. We'll also examine what's working well in Barbados, how local businesses can invest in their own operations and get the most return.

For business owners and entrepreneurs across the region, the COVID-19 pandemic has posed many challenges. Many companies have closed their operations while others have made significant changes in the way they operate, scaling down for the foreseeable future. For others however the past months represented an opportunity to grow and digitally transform their business.
