May 28, 2018 UPS Club Mentorship Meeting - 4th

"Back to School" is tonight's theme at UPS. This is the third time I'm visiting UPS Alabang, and my second time as a Club Mentor. At the first time, I was invited as a General Evaluator.

We forgot all about the usual group pictorial at the meeting's end. So we had a photo instead at the reception desk/ lobby/ waiting area of the office at the 20th floor of Tower 2 of Insular Life Corporate Center building. Shown below (L-R) are: VPM Jason Confesor, Pres. Ron Aguila, Sec. Myzza Abuel, me, Anne and Leah.

May 10, 2018 Continental GBS Demo Meeting - Creating Effective Visual Aids

It would be a long drive away from home to attend this demo meeting at an unholy hour at that (9:30pm!). A late evening demo meeting that I attended before was also in a BPO company, HSBC Call Center in 2006.

The demo meeting was at Continental GBS at the 9th floor of the Net Lima Bldg. in BGC (Bonifacio Global City). Riding with me was Irene coz I needed someone to keep me awake on the way home - haha. Upon Pres. Leah's request to witness the demo meeting, we picked her up at the Insular Life bldg. in Alabang.

May 4, 2018 UPS Meeting - First Time as Club Mentor - 3rd

"Fiesta" is the theme for today's meeting at the UPS Alabang TMC. The club members even hang "banderitas" (flaglets) to create the atmosphere. I was looking for the "lechon" though. Haha.
