Last September 12, PLDT SME Nation hosted the annual MVP Bossing Banquet in the famous Japanese restaurant, Nobu Restaurant located in City of Dreams.
It was a great day to celebrate the achievements and milestones of every Bossing and recognize their contributions in the development of the society. From the first batch which I was a part of, to the recent batch named last year, headed by Grand Bossing Carlos Chan of Liwayway Marketing Corporation, together we have supported a number of corporate social causes. Last year, together with Henry Lim Bon Liong, we supported the rice bucket challenge which donated kilos of rice to different communities.
For this year, in partnership with Ideaspace, a start-up incubator, the Bossings listened as four start-ups presented their businesses. The four start-ups who presented are MobKard, SALt, Wattsmart and Heat Stress Analyzer. We, Bossings, expressed our support for them.
Lastly, my wife Marissa gave the closing remarks.
