Stephen the son of Caribbean businessman and entrepreneur Denis St Bernard is now in receipt of a Scholarship to read for a Masters in E-Commerce and Business Innovation at Lancaster University, one of the top 7 Universities in the United Kingdom for Business Studies.

He is arguably a chip off the old block, following in his dad’s footsteps, a well known Caribbean and international business development consultant. Stephen started as a young entrepreneur at the age of 7 selling cookies and lemonade to the neighbours in his home compound in Kingston and never looked back.

He later started his own online business 2 years ago while pursuing his first degree. When CaribDirect.com interviewed Denis about his son’s glowing achievements he confirmed jokingly that “Stephen got his brains from his mom because he still has his.” Although we are in the same field we see things a little different sometimes, naturally he represents the future in business enterprise models and thinking and I am old school, as he would say, however we both appreciate and respect the collective values we could bring to assist Caribbean Enterprise locally, regionally and globally he ended.
