Rohan, Cedella and Karen Marley led a sneak peek of their father, Bob Marley’s restored Land Rover, Defender. The presentation came just one day before the 70th anniversary of the birth of Bob Marley.

The purpose of the Summit, which brought together approximately 120 attendees, was to bridge the gap between philanthropists and social entrepreneurs in the Caribbean and the rest of the world. The forum highlighted the region as a hub for cultural diversity, innovation, intellectual talent and impact. More than 12 discussions and keynote speeches addressed topics ranging from investing in the next generation of women entrepreneurs, empowering youth in the Caribbean, and using social media platforms as a way of connecting with Millennial consumers.
