CBM GRADUATE SCHOOL ON A MISSION:
THE COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAMDate: November 17, 2017Posted by: Marionette Martinez
Contributed by Dr. Mary Grace L. Leongson
The CBM Graduate School Outreach Activity was held on 28 October 2017 in the HRM Training Center Coffee Shop from 1:00 to 5:00 P.M. This closely followed the seminar/symposium held in the morning on this year’s theme “Breaking Barriers and Breaching Boundaries for Business Success (B5).” CBM Graduate School was in partnership with St. Paul University Manila’s Community Development Center (CDC) in the planning and implementation of this activity. The outreach activity was attended and participated in by micro-business owners in Malate and Ermita, Manila who have food and non-food businesses like carinderia, beauty salon, e-load among others.
CBM Graduate School Professor, Dr. Jennifer Ramos, started the seminar-workshop with an introduction on Stewardship. She was able to set the mood of the activity and provided the participants with information relevant to service and product development. This was followed by Joy Fajardo and KC Sajul’s talk on Sustaining Micro Businesses. Ms. Fajardo and Ms. Sajul are Doctor in Business Administration (DBA) students. They shared their learnings related to business operations and marketing. A workshop was conducted after the talk, where our very own MBA and DBA students participated as facilitators. Dr. Mary Grace Leongson, HRM Program Chair and CBM Graduate School Professor, hosted the event.
