Ph Entrep Summit in Dubai

By Randell Tiongson on September 12th, 2017

The Philippine economy continues to be robust and is now considered one of the fastest growing and most sustainable economies in Asia. Aside from strong fundamentals, one of the reasons for the country’s stellar economic performance is due our modern-day heroes, our Overseas Filipinos.

For the last 4 years, the Overseas Filipinos based in the United Arab Emirates have been exposed to successful finance and business advocacies and have since become empowered. Savings and investment rates of those exposed to our advocacy have consistently proven to be on the rise.

On October 6 & 7, 2017, we are organizing the very first Ph Entrep Summit in Dubai, UAE. The conference is targeted to appeal to the Filipinos based in Dubai and the other Emirates who are already ready and able to enter into entrepreneurship.

The Summit will run for two (2) days. The first day will be a plenary and will feature the following top-notched speakers from the Philippines:

Paulo Tibig is the Philiippines’ EntrepChamp. He is the CEO of VCargo, one of the country’s most successful logistics company. Paulo is one of the most in-demand speaker on entrepreneurship, a main stay of Go Negosyo, former President of the Association of the Filipino Franchisers Inc. (AFFI) and a best-selling author.

Armando “Butz” Bartolome earned the moniker “Franchise Guru” for being one of the pioneer and most respected authority in franchising. He is one of the most prolific speaker of Go Negosyo on the area of business and franchising. He is a best-selling author and columnist.

Dodong Cacanando is one of the country’s most inspiring business speakers. Dodong heed the call for setting up a farm in Bukdinon after a very successful career with Hewlett Packard.
