FLASH MOBS, ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY, RENEWED PROSPERITY, AND THE MAYOR'S MENTORSHIP INITIATIVE

Close your eyes.Imagine that you are a French national and Founder and CEO of a software corporation headquartered in Saint-Herblain, France which provides products and services to medical professionals and biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies in three continents.

In 2016, there were 462 murders in Trinidad and Tobago. This is a relatively high number in a small population of approximately 1.4 million persons. It is eas…
