To celebrate International Women’s Month, Kalibrr couldn’t have chosen a more appropriate theme for their launch event last March 21, 2018: #GirlBoss: Power women leading in 21st century Manila. They invited top women leaders today as guest speakers for the event namely Ms. Minette Navarette, Vice-Chairman, and President of Kickstart Ventures, Inc., Ms. Nina Ylagan-Pedro, Vice President for the Aboitiz Human Resources Group, and Ms. Niña Terol, co-founder and Chief Fireball of Kick Fire Kitchen.
Nina Pedro talked about Leadership Insights of HR and the corporate path she went through to get to where she is now. “Learn as much as you can at where you are now. The brighter you are, the more you have to learn,” says Nina.
Minette Navarette talked about Learning to Lead in a Changing World. She shared how she went from working in the consumer goods industry to shifting to digital ventures and how she consistently improved herself in the process.
“Kalibrr Communities is a really great concept. I’m glad I was able to attend and get to meet people from different industries. I’ll definitely tell my students to attend the next one,” mentions Nikko Magalona from Freelancer.com.
