Plan for success. TeamAsia founder and president, Monette Iturralde-Hamlin, delivered a seminar on events management for Philippine M.I.C.E. Academy.

TeamAsia founder and president, Monette Iturralde-Hamlin, delivered an events management seminar for the participants of the Philippine M.I.C.E Academy’s Events Management 101 last March 29, 2017 at Enderun Colleges, Taguig City.

With 25 years’ worth of experience in event planning, marketing and promotion, Monette provided the participants with a broader perspective on the M.I.C.E (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, Exhibitions/Events) industry.


Labor of love. Novartis Philippines Asia Cluster members proudly presented the t-shirts they had designed for the children of Bahay Aruga with Bahay Aruga President Mayette Bonilla.

Leading healthcare company Novartis Philippines completed their team-building activities last March 8, 2017 at Barbara’s Heritage Restaurant in Intramuros.

The event, which was organized by TeamAsia Training, started off with a tour of the San Agustin Church and Manila Cathedral in Intramuros and culminated with a painting activity for the benefit of the patients of Bahay Aruga, a halfway house for pediatric cancer patients.


Expert shares power selling secrets

“Salespeople need to constantly be on top of their selling game,” said corporate trainer and educator Lhoree Valerio. “While it is important to keep up with every latest industrial and technological trend, some practices stay the same, making the secret of power selling a gem throughout these years.”

With 15 years of experience in marketing and operations management, Valerio continues to emphasize the value of knowledge in sales expertise, customer relations, and good reputation. “Impressing your client with your customer services and capabilities is a must. They need your expertise, but it is important to note that they purchase and hire services for their purposes, not yours.”

“You are the presentation.  Be the presentation,” says Monette Iturralde-Hamlin, founder and president of TeamAsia, an award-winning strategic marketing communications firm.  “Don’t just rely on a PowerPoint Presentation to make your point.”

Sloppy or boring visual aids in the form of poorly prepared PowerPoint Presentations can make or break a presentation.  Slides with too many words crammed into them are a natural turn-off, Monette says.  Presenters, who just read what is written on their slides word for word and have nothing more to add, waste the time of their audience.  The audience might just as well read the slides themselves.
