|Mr. Samie Lim, the Franchising Guru.|
First day of September and ber months, I think I was productive enough to have attended CHInoypreneur Day in Federation Center, Binondo Manila. It was a whole day event and an advocacy project of Chinoy TV in cooperation with Philippine Franchise Association (PFA), Go Negosyo, Mansmith and Fielders and the Alliance of Filipino-Chinese Students (AFICS). It aims to promote the spirit of entrepreneurship among the youth and to help improve the current state of Chinoy-owned business by educating them with different tools, technologies and strategies in the fields of leadership, finance, marketing, IT, human resources and so much more. Though I stayed for only about two hours I was able to witness and heed well-known business guru like Mr. Samie Lim, who basically talked about franchising; Mr. Paulo Tibig, who generously shared his knowledge about the basics of entrepreneurship; and Mr. Michaelangelo Lobrin who bequeath his thoughts for positive mindset.
CHInoypreneur Day was co-presented by Multiply.com and successfully gathered the most influential business experts in the Philippines today. It aims to foster unity among the Chinoy community in different industries. I sure hope those who were present that day, be it whole day of half day, have learned great lessons that they can slowly master and apply in their future business. I felt it was all about people helping other people and it is good to know that Chinoy community presently have common purpose and interest with one another.
This coming October, Chinoypreneur will air in Chinoy TV on Net 25. Something to look forward to.“CHInoy TV” is the only Filipino Chinese television show that features Chinese heritage and how it harmonizes with the Filipino culture. It is committed to promote both cultures by featuring Filipino-Chinese lifestyle to its viewers and it is the only show that caters directly to the Filipino-Chinese community. The show features about successful Chinese personalities, establishments, fashion, travel, entertainment and other happenings surrounding the Filipino-Chinese community. Chinoy TV airs every Sunday 1030am with replays on Tuesday 11pm and Saturday 1030am.
In that case they will be having a CHInoypreneur Challenge 2012, a business reality show that will be collectively participated by college students from from De La Salle University, Ateneo de Manila University, University of Sto. Tomas, Philippine Cultural College, Chang Kai Shek College, University of the Philippines, and University of Asia and the Pacific.It will be then a training venue that would allow them to sharpen their entrepreneurial skills by providing them real life business experiences. So business-minded peeps pout there must watch out for this!
