From the little country girl who enjoyed climbing trees and playing with her brothers, Ethnie Miller Simpson has transformed her playful, childlike determination into a business. After attending Knox College for her secondary education, all that changed, and she attended Shortwood Teachers College and later the University of the West Indies. For 12 years she taught at the secondary level, and while she enjoyed it, she felt that it was time to move on. The next step for her was Digicel, which set the framework for Zinergy International, her branding company. She peaked at Digicel as head of learning and development, where she was asked by the director of marketing, Harry Smith, to work out solutions for team building.
After leaving Digicel she was later hired by National Commercial Bank (NCB), where she helped them to develop their Corporate Learning Campus. She left NCB to start her own business and is now a noted Learning Architect, Global Speaker, Brand Specialist and Entrepreneur. Ethnie specialises in branding (personal & corporate), organizational re-design, workplace learning professional (training & coaching), marketing brands though promotional items and events; developing SMEs, working with women in business. She is currently an Executive at the The Women Entrepreneurs Network of the Caribbean which operates to strengthen the voice, visibility, viability and interest of business women in the Caribbean. Simpson-Miller also serves Co-Director for WEConnect International which provides resources, tools and certification needed for women to access new markets and win contracts, and connect women to a global network of other women in business.
