Last February 16, we celebrated Valentine’s Day with a Healthy Heart Talk with our guest speaker Dr. Lawrence Allen Tria, just in time for the month of Hearts – Dr. Tria educated us on how we can avoid those heart diseases which is now the No. 1 cause of death in the Philippines.
Aside from this very informative talk, we have welcomed 2 new members of LEAP – Lara and Thet! We are happy to have you back in LEAP!!!
The newly-opened Somerset Alabang Manila in Filinvest City hosted the gathering of LEAP's 2017 Board of Directors together with some of their committee deputies. The one-day session was a productive exchange of strategies and ideas. This enabled the group to set the organization’s 2017 directions, plans and activities.
Last May 14, 2016, Saturday, LEAP had its Spiritual Enrichment Activity at Regina Rosarii (Mary Queen of the Rosary) in Tanay, Rizal led by the Spiritual Committee Chairman Ms. Erlynne Figueroa.
I googled immediately Regina Rica as it was my first time to heard of the place. I’ve found out that this place was big and tranquil. There’s Way of the Cross in the sprawling grounds. So, this place can get quite crowded during Lenten Season for prayer and pilgrimage. I have told myself that I will invite my mother to join me and my LEAP family in this spiritual event. I was thrilled to show her the pictures that I have collected when I got home and yes, like me, she was enthusiastic to join, too!
During our roadshow at the NTC on September 6, 2014 where we conducted a lecture forum for the College of Accountancy and Business, our two scholars Roxelle Sobrido and Mico Largo surprised us with their heartwarming speeches. We are so proud of you Roxelle and Mico!
25th August marked a 1st for LEAP, when finally, after a postponement from the original 11th August schedule, our Roadshow pushed through.
Everything was great! Our initial meeting with Ms. Marlyn Mabalot, Dean at NTC, a few weeks back, paved the way for the conduct of the roadshow. Last Saturday, despite the weather forecasts, we were blessed with a cooperative one. We received a warm welcome upon reaching the National Teachers College, students looked eager on what we were to share. The preparations done were flawless.
Frances, Rose and myself were doubly excited meeting NTC. We arrived early in the venue and started off with a prayer. Students across year levels from the colleges of the Business Administration, Office Administration and Accountancy, around 400 of them came. At exactly 2:00pm, the programme kicked off. Mr. Jose Oscar Arguelles, Vice President for Planning, delivered the welcome remarks, thanked the students for coming. Mr. Arguelles acknowledged how important the role is of an Executive Assistant. He set the mood for an interactive afternoon session by asking the students what they think an Executive Assistant is. And yes, we did receive answers.
LEAP's L&D Chair, Ching Bognot, gave a brief on what L&D is and the reason why we were conducting the roadshow at NTC. LEAP’s Chair, Frances Peria, delivered her talk on the “Admin Landscape” and introduced LEAP. The students were impressed when the slide on member companies was shown. NTC prepared intermission numbers between our talks. Rose, on behalf of Tintin Cobreros (Chair, Organizational Sustainability) then discussed about the Scholarship – a partnership between LEAP and NTC. This is a project by the Organizational Sustainability Committee to support via scholarship a few students of NTC, the Admin Profession. We expect to have the project kicked off by the 2nd semester of SY 2012-2013.
