The Junior Marketing Executives (JME) of Polytechnic University of the Philippines had its annual mentoring program with the theme “Craft: Molding the Lore of Marketing Wizards” last September 16, 2019, from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM at Claro M. Recto Hall.
The audience was composed of marketing students of PUP and its partner schools. The speakers at the seminar were Mr. Lloyd Luna, RSP, CEO of Stepback and founder of Philippine Association of Professional Speakers who tackled the topic about “Personal Branding” and Mr. Jigo Reloj, the former Digital Academy Faculty Member, Digital Strategist and Accounts Officer at ABS-CBN Corporation who tackled the topic about “Digital Marketing.”
It formally began with the talk of Mr. Luna who gives out humorous jokes and lines in which caught the attention of the audience. Also, he executed an Ice Breaker in which everyone enjoyed and learned something from it. The students were very ecstatic and active the moment he stood in front and give some words.
He shared how he developed his personal brand and how he reached his achievements in life. Also, he gave two main points that the students should not forget about, service and asking questions.
He quoted, “When you live your life in the service of others, they will live their lives serving you.” and a non-verbatim, “Continue to serve because life is a service.” Another one is when asking, the question should always be, “how can I help you?” and not the other way around. Mr. Luna did not just entertain but also educates and motivates throughout the time.
Furthermore, he was given a thirty-minute extension by the organizers because it seems like everyone wants more from him. Three students from the audience were also given an opportunity to ask questions for him. Also, we have asked the response of selected students from the audience about their experience during the event.
The first set is one of the three students who were able to ask a question to Mr. Luna during the Q&A portion and a random audience.
Here are some of what they have shared: “Parang
