NORTHERN LIGHTS CARIBBEAN DEALERS HOLD VIRTUAL MEETING AMID THE CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWNS
9 April 20, Road Town, Tortola
Most Caribbean Countries are on lockdown due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. With few exceptions, all Caribbean Countries are restricting anyone, other than Essential Workers, from leaving their own yard. Although most Caribbean Northern Lights Dealers are Essential Workers in their own counties, there is very little work to require anyone from going out. With this in mind, Robin Hales and Gavin Dooley, from Parts & Power, organized an online training meeting with all the Caribbean Dealers. It was a good opportunity for everyone to get together and discuss the Northern Lights Product, and the Northern Lights and CaribbeanNorthernLights.com websites. Rob hosted the event, and Gavin was our trainer.
There were 26 people in attendance on the Zoom meeting with one or more participants from
Marine Power Services, Antigua; Dominica Marine Centre, Dominica; Palm Tree Marine, Grenada; Inboard Diesel Services, Martinique; Electec, St. Maarten; Caraibes Diesel, St. Martin; Marintek, St. Lucia; LP Marine, Trinidad; Marine Maintenance, Tortola; CRC, Virgin Gorda; Import Supply, St. Thomas and Parts & Power.
“It is important, in this time of isolation, for everyone to remain engaged,” Robin Hales said. “I thought it was also an excellent time for us all to get together to talk about the Northern Lights Product.” It is not very often when we can get the attention of our very busy Dealers. So, I wanted to take advantage of the fact that most people were in isolation. Besides, I have not had an opportunity to meet with some of our Dealers, especially with planned travel being postponed at this time” he said. “Although face to face meetings are not possible, this was the next best thing. This was so successful that we will hold a follow up meeting next week.”
