Garth Noel is an entrepreneur based in Trinidad and Tobago, Although he graduating with a degree in Natural science from the University of the Southern Caribbean, he gravitated towards computers, which was in its infancy back then in the early eighties and spent several years as a lecturer in the universities computer department. He left the safety of academia, struck out on his own in the early nineties and founding a business in the computer industry.

Garth appreciates the necessity of the unity and strength that can come through networking, especially now in these times of uncertainty and is reminded of the poet William Yates words

Are full of passionate intensity” Garth Noel.
He believes that it is not enough to know and to be aware, but that we must also share our knowledge, time and resources with like minded people if we are to succeed.
