CEO Patricia Bacchus: Leaving the law for the corporate world
In another country Patricia Bacchus might be practising human rights law, but not in Guyana. In her view too much is wrong with the judicial sector here and the wheels of justice turn so slowly, her frankness would almost certainly attract contempt proceedings. Although qualified in the law, therefore, she has nevertheless taken the decision not to practise in her field.
Instead she is now the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of a corporate company and while some might find this a far cry from human rights, for Bacchus helping to save a company which was in serious decline and saving the jobs of over 100 persons is enough to keep her going.
