Keith Checkley awarded for contributions to financial services sector

Keith was presented with the award at the Institute’s 39th annual awards ceremony at Melia Resort, Cable Beach in September this year. The ceremony celebrates those who have completed programmes and on special occasions offers fellowship awards.

When Keith first visited 21 years ago, the institute was focused primarily on local certificate programmes relevant to Bahamas, with no executive level workshops, courses or seminars.

“I helped them with the concept of creating more senior level programmes,” Keith commented, “to build their confidence and ability in Nassau and, for those looking to go overseas, to provide the opportunity for international accreditation.”

The institute wanted accreditation linked up with Chartered Banker Institute and ICMA Centre partner Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI). Keith, with help from others such as Dean of Henley Business School John Board, helped to obtain approval to operate out of Nassau.

“They’ve seen a huge transformation, from a very local Bahamian context, well equipped for what they do in their jurisdiction, into an international one with accreditation from world renowned institutes. It has been a great experience working alongside the Bahamas Institute of Financial Services, and I am honoured to have received this award.”
