GEW Bonaire 2020 events
It's Time to Start Your Adventures
Below you will find a detailed description of all of the events GEW Bonaire will be hosting in 2020.
Friday November 13th 2020 @ 10:00 a.m.
Live 2 Lead
If you’re going to survive, you must adapt.
If you’re in leadership, it doesn’t take you long to learn that lesson. But decades in, some leaders forget. Some feel like they’ve reached the end of the road, achieved all they want or need to achieve, and they suddenly find themselves relearning old lessons—only this time, the lessons cost more to learn.
That’s certainly been the case for some leaders this year. They’ve been caught flatfooted in the face of Covid-19, their lack of growth and development suddenly on display for everyone to see. Whether its through bad decisions or a lack of leadership support, times like the past few months reveal the truth that leaders who stop learning stop leading.

Funday - Stand up Comedy
The business of being funny is no laughing matter. Compared to genres like factual, reality and drama, comedy can be too expensive, too regionally specific and just too much of a risk.
There are signs that the comedy industry is struggling to maintain its place as a boom area for the digital era of video broadcasting.
This is why GEW has come up with unique platform to allow our local comedians from Curaçao & Bonaire to showcase their talent and bring a joyful moment into you own personal space.
