Petra has always been a passionate advocate of Barbados and believes that one has to always find innovative ways to keep interest and investment to Barbados fresh. She was the brainchild behind the very successful British Airways Football Legends Invitational, a legends football tournament which sees 64 ex-premier football stars take to the pitch at Kensington Oval. Other key sports projects include Chelsea Football Club camp, part of a football developmental plan which sees CFC s coaches training both coaches and kids on Barbados.
She sits on the Board of The Branson Centre for Entrepreneurship in Jamaica which is a hub for aspiring entrepreneurs and offers practical help to develop strong business skills as well as exposure to networks and financial and investment opportunities. She is also a Board Director for Sport for Life which seeks to positively influence the lives of kids from a challenging background in the UK and the Caribbean through sport. The Caribbean Tourism Organisation’s UK chapter is another board she is actively involved with.
Petra commented:“The secret for me is finding a way to create a legacy with our exciting initiatives whilst at the same time, giving something valuable back to the community. If we invest in our youth and provide them with enough opportunities, we can ensure that the Caribbean region will continue to grow and dominate the world stage by producing world class personalities in every field, be it sports, arts, culture or business.”
