Learning never stops.
That’s the reason why I was excited to attend the 7th Cebu Regional Retail Conference. Whether you talk about professional or personal life, we all want to be successful.
How do you be successful?
The easiest way to do so is to emulate and learn from people who have already walked the walk. People who have been there. Those who have experienced the highs and the lows. Learn from them. It’s faster and easier than reading a book. It’s more effective than going to school. It’s even better than Google. (Google, if you are reading this, I was joking. You are still awesome! Don’t be evil.)
Here’s a big thank you to Pia for asking us to be a media partner. I’m confident in saying that the people who attended, learned a lot and went home inspired. The speakers were all very insightful and had many good points. I even wrote down notes on a piece of paper for future reference.
For those who weren’t able to join, here are a couple of tweets to give you an idea of what it was like. Also the event poster will be below for reference – who the speakers were and what they talked about.
Till the next one!
