Mind and Matter
Many persons showcase their prowess in only a few, let alone, one aspect of their daily lives, with little room for diversity - not Patrick Lawe. For much of his career, he had dedicated himself to the service of others through offering protection via insurance. Who would have thought that this financial genius would have had the gravitas to dive into the world of construction and real estate?
In 2012, Patrick Lawe launched out on the development of the Almond Beach Resorts in Barbados, away from Jamaica, away from the industry he is accustomed to, but well within the core of his calling. He went to the other side of the business and saw how it was to not just insure property, lives, etc., but to see the value of that insurance
In this time, though short-lived, Patrick Lawe got to appreciate the shear value of his contribution to nationa building and regional development. It showed him not just how important it was to have insurance, but gave him a chance to feel what some of his clients, and their interests have to endure, on a day-to-day basis.
These are the experiences and decisions which set Pat Lawe apart from the average businessman. He steps out and into the life of the Client, not only for a glance, but to glean insight only to serve them better. Indeed, he epitomizes the balance needed to not just excel, but to flourish - mind and matter.
