Keith Miller was born in Liverpool, England, but has been a permanent resident of Barbados since 1978 and proudly claims to be a Bajan by invitation and adoption. Educated at the Liverpool Blue Coat School; the John Moores University; the Sorbonne, University of Paris, France; and the University of Valencia, Spain, his first venture into commercial life was in a management capacity with the retail giants, Marks and Spencer. Having decided that he needed to broaden his horizons with a more demanding and exciting challenge, Keith relocated to Barbados by accepting a position as a teacher and housemaster at Mapps College, St. Philip, where he remained for 14 years, including the last 6 as Headmaster.
In 1983, Keith and his wife Sally established Miller Publishing Company and launched the Ins & Outs of Barbados tourist guide. Today Miller Publishing publishes the Ins & Outs of Barbados, the Ins & Outs of Trinidad & Tobago, the Ins & Outs of St. Vincent & The Grenadines, Barbados in a Nutshell, Visit Barbados and a wide range of high quality coffee-table books. Over the course of the years, Keith and Sally have been jointly awarded with The Ernst & Young Entrepreneurs of the Year for Tourism in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean; the Minister of Tourism’s Special Award for Contribution to the Development of Tourism in Barbados and the Barbados Hotel & Tourism Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition to Miller Publishing and the Caribbean Business Publications projects of Business Barbados, BusinessBarbados.com, the Business Barbados E-Book and Business Trinidad & Tobago, Keith has also worked with a Canadian film production company to produce Barbados Style, a very high quality HD TV Film which promoted Barbados to a global audience. Keith also works as a professional writer and he has been shortlisted for the British Sports Book of the Year New Writer Award, for his title Steven Gerrard, Michael Owen and Me, which is based on the Academy System in Premier League Football in the UK. In between working, Keith enjoys travelling, keeping fit, good food and wine, playing golf, following all sports, relaxing at the beach and mentoring young people and would-be entrepreneurs. For over 10 years he was a Member and Chairman of the Board of St. Gabriel’s School; he is a Founder Member of the Barbados Entrepreneurship Foundation, and he is the Project Leader of the $20 Challenge, an entrepreneurship competition for secondary school students.
