The annual lecture in memory of Barbados’ first native Governor General, the late Sir Winston Scott, has over the years brought distinguished personalities to the Frank Collymore Hall stage to speak on a wide range of topics, and has filled the hall with regular patrons who look forward to the event year after year.

Chief Executive Officer of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Dr Dexter James; acting Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr Kenneth George; chairman of the QEH board; Juliette Bynoe-Sutherland; and members of the Scott family, Pamela Hope and her daughter Dr Camille Hope; all mingled and chatted during the cocktail reception that followed the lecture.
