Caroline Bennett-Jarvis has over 20 years experience  as a human resource development practitioner; she is a committed humanitarian and an avid lifelong learner, currently managing and producing digital educational content for the US market. Originally from England, Caroline initially was formally educated in contemporary art, design, and craft, where she has been able to transcend her critical innovative thinking abilities into the corporate world in Barbados, her home for the past 22 years.  Her career path in L&D has been more vocational and experiential despite recently achieving MSc in Leadership and Human Resource Management accompanied with a dual CMI certification in Strategic Leadership and Management and currently pursuing CIPD qualification in Human Resource Development. Subsequently and as a result, her studies have been a valuable addition to a continuously exciting, growth oriented, professional and personal life fulfilling journey.
