MEET THE MODERATOR
Eugene Dean is a life-long community activist who has applied his trouble-shooting skills in computer science to the physical infrastructure of social enterprise. Starting in the fields of sports, information technology and wholistic health before expanding to embrace audio visual, event management, sustainable living and alternative energy, Eugene uses the creative license of the multimedia / entertainment industry to literally connect “public interest” with the “public square”. As the founder of the Emperial Group, Eugene created an umbrella concept of service and collective effort based on “meeting the needs of the people”. He undertook the management of Spanish Town Entertainment, over a decade ago, to ensure that the community has access to affordable entertainment infrastructure for live events. Prior to that he created Bermuda’s first football academy and developed Startime, a multimedia company through which he produced an number of live webcasts, video productions, theatre productions and the Moonlight Movie Series. This wholesome family event, based on the theme “Unity in the Community”, proved that simple concepts can bring people together from all walks of life. Throughout this process of trouble-shooting, Eugene has evolved as a trusted, reliable and accessible presence in the often uncertain arena of event promotion. He brings this same
skill set to the emerging requirements of the non-profit arena as the longest serving member of Greenrock and current Chairman of the Executive Board.
