EOY 2015 goes on the road

Last 26 March, the Entrepreneur Of The Year Philippines (EOYP) hosted a road show in Davao City to promote the program and encourage participation from the Davao business community. The road show included talks by SGV Market Group (MG) 4 Leader Daks Balili and Head of Tax Services Willie Villanueva on Family Business Governance and the latest tax updates, respectively. SGV Brand, Marketing & Communications Leader and EOYP Program Manager Marlu Balmaceda then shared an overview of the Entrepreneur Of The Year program.

Past finalists were also in attendance to share their experience on the program and take questions from the audience. Among them were Rochelle Alag, Cherryl Dacup and Joseph Castor of Ana’s Breeders Farm, Inc.; Flordy Saavedra of the Federation of Cooperatives in Mindanao; Julie Cinco and Marie Gil Pampiona of Gensan Shipyard & Machine Work Inc.; and Engr. Remegio Salanatin of R.G. Salanatin Construction, Inc.

The Davao road show is the second for this year. On 24 March, EOYP Program Director Tonette Tionko and Marlu shared information about the program in Iloilo City as part of the Philippine Capital Markets Investment Conference organized by the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE). The PSE is a co-presenter of EOYP. Marlu also gave a talk on “The Role of Entrepreneurship in Development.”
