New Year's Message from the President

It’s now January 2022 and the coronavirus is still with us with no sign of leaving anytime soon.
Life and work as we know it will never be the same no matter how we wish it to be.
Time that we stop waiting for "The New Normal", The future won't be NORMAL

Love, Courage, Leadership and Success – MLK Words to live by

On January 14, 2021, the newest statue to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was installed at the intersection of Northside Drive and Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive in Atlanta, Georgia. The 18-foot bronze statue titled ‘Hope Moving Forward’ was sculpted by Jamaican-born Basil Watson. As a proud Jamaican myself, I pause to reflect on Dr. King’s legacy, as we celebrate his life and work on MLK Day. He would have been 92 years old now if not for an assassin’s bullet.


2020 began with a lot of promise and potential, no different than many years before. However, by February its vision became blurred by the threat of COVID 19, which became our reality for the remainder of the year. We have seen job losses, bankruptcies, downsizing and a new normal in social interactions and the way we do business.  What a year it has been. So much has changed. So much promise and potential unrealized, but we made it through. Many at home and abroad left us -they did not make it through.

To our valued clients and the wider community, important advisory from Above or Beyond.

For Immediate Release                                                                             March 16, 2020


Let me begin by thanking everyone for their efforts in 2019 and wishing everyone a happy, healthy and fruitful 2020.
