It's not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it ~ A.W. Tozer
ODEM exists because of the Grace of God and a woman's tenacity that enabled her to continue to rework, change, and rebrand different areas of the company into practical service offerings. ODEM offers its services to the public based on strong ethical beliefs, positive business principles, and a passion for social entrepreneurship. There are seven (7) business units that make up the Group. These are ODEM Brands (Agri-Business and Product Development), ODEM Business Consulting (Business Development and Training), ODEM Creative Media (Advertising and Digital Media), ODEM Community (Digital Advertising and Online Community Tourism), ODEM Foundation (Social Change), ODEM Publishing (Book and Magazine Publications) and ODEM Built Environment (Quantity Surveying, and Facilities Management). The business areas operate independently or connected and are not only viable but are of benefit to society.
ODEM Group started as an idea, while our founder freelanced on a part-time basis. The idea was put on hold for several years as she gained much-needed exposure and experience across FMCG and the advertising industry. After a long and arduous learning curve that resulted in some failed projects, in 2014, her vision and model began to take shape, and the ODEM Group of Companies became formalised. Over the next few years, she leveraged her freelancing relationships and service-oriented attitude to attract business. In 2022, she was joined by her husband who introduced services for the built environment. Together they share a vision for delivering excellent service and making a difference within the industries the company operates. To date, the company has maintained a small man attitude to relationships and service where every business encounter matters. This approach, alongside a conglomerate vision where high output and productivity is paramount, aids the Group's operation in the unique niche, it created.
Our central teams operate from Trinidad and Jamaica, with our administrative office based in Jamaica. Together we aim to use our products and services to "Establish Heritage" that will influence the world in the areas of business, media, arts, entertainment, education, and local communities.
