BELAIR, Sint Maarten – “Great Summit! Both days were engaging. Speakers were motivational and messages resonated with the audience,” stated Government policy advisor, Sharine Duncan about Victorious Living’s recent Leadership Summit 2019.
Duncan’s and the Secretary General of UNESCO for St. Maarten Marcellia Henry’s statements represent the sentiments of the over 125 persons who attended the two-day Summit, including Minister of Education, Mr. Wycliffe Smith, the Ombudsman, Gwendolen Mossel and staff.
VLF’s Leadership Summit, now in its second year comprises Leadercast, the world’s largest one day leadership conference, designed to develop “leaders worth following.” This year was Victorious Living’s seventh consecutive hosting of Leadercast which has impacted hundreds of leaders locally.
Among the star studded and knowledgeable Leadercast were: Dr. Caroline Leaf, Communication Pathologist and Cognitive Neuroscientist; Andy Stanley, Leadership Author and Communicator; Marcus Samuelsson, Award-Winning Chef and Restaurateur, Author and TV Personality; Carla Harris, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, Morgan Stanley; and Gayle King, Co-Host, CBS This Morning and Editor-at-Large, O, the Oprah Magazine. All speakers focused on the art of “Leading Healthy Teams.”
Day two of the Summit featured local experts such as Apostle Hilton Albert, author and Pastor of Christ Ambassadors Ministries International on the Northern Side of St. Martin. He focused on the significance of national prayer to transform and restore our nation. Dr. Tasheena Maccow Thomas of “The Teezan Health and Wellness Center” educated the very attentive audience about foods they thought were good but are detrimental to their health. She also enlightened them about locally grown plants that are good for their overall health. The impact of her presentation and the availability of her delicious Teezan teas were well received and created a boost in her business sales as a result.
Host of VLF’s Leadership Summit, and visionary of Victorious Living Dr. Erna Mae Francis Cotton and her husband Roy Cotton, Jr., host of Love and Inspiration and a transformation specialist, shared on How to Discover the Root Causes of Dis-ease based on the 6 Root-Causes of all Symptoms and
the 9 specific points and phases of self-healing. They also shared a powerful documentary produced by Johannes Fisslinger, founder of Lifestyle Prescriptions® University of which The Cottons are students.
Regional health expert the Honourable Priest Kailash of The Great Physician International provided both a powerful interactive lecture and demonstration on how to prepare a sea moss drink with local Caribbean cocoa for improved metabolism, heart health, and libido. Each participant enjoyed a taste of the drink. His engaging and thought provoking session was extremely well received. The able Mistress of Ceremony was Murielle Jean-Michel, a daughter of the soil, and now an Applied Psychologist.
As money answers most things, Day 2 also featured Ashley Cheeks, MBA of the USA who spoke on The Financial Formula to Funding Your Goals. Entrepreneurs hire Ashley when they are ready to take their company or business idea to the next level. She is the Founder and CEO at Written

Despite St. Martin’s great attributes as a preferred touristic destination, people are hurting. Our community is fragmented. Young people are frustrated. Families are falling apart. Marriages are failing and divorce is rising. Our communities need hope; tools for restoration and creating
lasting and positive change. These challenges are not unique to St. Martin however, but are felt regionally and internationally as well.
Consequently, the vision of Victorious Living Foundation is to be the leading total-wellness, family and youth oriented community service provider, functioning as agents of change in the nation, the region and the world. Victorious Living has impacted and transformed thousands of lives over the past seventeen years with limited human and financial resources. VLF empowers, enlightens and reconciles our local, Caribbean and global communities through emotional, spiritual and socio-economic healing, through workshops, conferences, production of music, publishing of literature, and other avenues to reach their God-given potential.
