I’m flattered the first time Canon Philippines Big Boss Ramon Arteficio asked me to visit his office. Mr. Arteficio is an avid subscriber of my newsletters and yes, I was really excited. But just like the Globe thing, the company didn’t get me to speak not until their sales rally.
I think the best is always reserved for last. Or, at least I believe it now.
Second experience to remind me of this seminar: My staff was carrying a videocam and a camera with an imprint “Sony.” Imagine I’m attending a Canon event with Sony gadgets. The nest thing that happened? I heard from the big boss (and his executives agree), “Next time, we will not see you with that one.”
Translation: We are giving you free cameras and printers. Canon became my official printer and imaging partner after some months of negotiation.
Do you also want a “Change Management Seminar Speaker” for your organization with a LLOYDLUNA imprint?
Change management is my subject here. Canon had to go through this “motivational talk” because of their reorganization. I discussed several things about change. And one interesting point I gave them is that there’s only one way out of scarcity: To out there, accept reality as it is (not as it was or we wish it were), and blend your self anew.
