Dickinson Joins GIV Bahamas Team

Dickinson Joins GIV Bahamas Team Powerhouse marketer, venture capitalist and former star of "Dragon's Den" joins our Brand Ambassador Program

GIV Bahamas Inc. is proud to welcome its partnership with Arlene Dickinson, making her the company's inaugural member of the Brand Ambassador Program. Dickinson, who is best known as a spirited, savvy and compassionate venture capitalist on CBC's hit show "Dragon's Den", recently announced her departure from the show after eight seasons. While this incredible Canadian has many projects on the go, the beautiful island of Exuma is now in her future. "I'm so pleased and humbled to have Arlene join our new Brand Ambassador Program in Exuma, Bahamas," said Peter Nicholson, the President of GIV Bahamas Inc. "Exuma is an island with friendly people and unbelievable beauty. Arlene's amazing background in marketing and her entrepreneurial vision makes this a great fit. But she is also a wonderful person, a humanitarian, and we look forward to also making a difference for the great citizens of Exuma." Along the way, Dickinson has been honored with many awards, including being named to PROFIT magazine's Top 100 Women Business Owners and one of Canada's 100 Most Powerful Women. She was recently inducted into The Marketing Hall of Legends. Brimming with opportunity, GIV Bahamas Inc. invited Dickinson to spend time on the island, share her ideas and attend one or more of the many exciting events and initiatives taking place here. In particular, she will tour the 10-acre campus of The Exuma Foundation, the long-standing "United Way" for the island, to learn about the valuable and evolving programs. Nicholson, with his expertise in philanthropic giving, was recently appointed to the Board of Trustees at the Exuma Foundation and made Chairman of the Developmental Committee. He has also applied for a CRA number for the creation of a Canadian wing, given the high concentration of Canadians visiting and indeed living on Exuma. Currently, The Exuma Foundation only offers tax receipts for American donors. "Someone like Arlene could make a huge difference in a place like Exuma." Nicholson added. "I can't wait to gain her impressions."
