Presidential presence at Philippine HR Congress

Philippine president, Rodrigo Duterte, was a guest of honour at the 10th Philippine HR Congress, which took place at the SMX Convention Center in Manila from August 17-18.

Over 1,300 people, including many senior executives ranging from CEOs and COOs to HR managers and business executives, attended the two-day event. The theme of the conference was ‘Success essentials of people management’.

Vishnu Annapareddy of Centurion Organisation, a partner to Appco Group Asia, was among the speakers invited to the prestigious gathering. “It was a great honour to be invited by the event organiser, Ariva Academy, to talk about leadership and emotional intelligence for HR managers,” he says.

Empowering and educating HR

Building your company brand, government policies in employment and people management were just some of the other topics covered by well-renowned entrepreneurs, thought leaders, doctors and innovators, such as Dr. Jaclyn Lee, Tom Oliver, Liza Pavlakos and Dan Meyer.

“HR Managers are the backbone of any growing organisation. I would like to congratulate Ariva Academy for organising this huge event and empowering HR teams with such important industry insight,” continues Annapareddy, who conducts face-to-face sales and fundraising for Appco Group’s clients in both Malaysia and the Philippines.
