The Gathering of Bosses at PLDT-SME Nation’s Bossing Ako

It was a night of glam, fun and excitement as PLDT SME Nation presents their top 16 ambassadors – THE BOSSINGS – who are serving the country as very good role models when it comes to their business or businesses.

The program, which was hosted by Mr. Arnel Ignacio, Mr. Tim Yap and the beautiful Miss Bianca Valero at NBC Tent, was a night that these 16 bosses will never forget. It was a spectacular night to give honours and recognition to these ambassadors who share their passion and dedication to their respective businesses.

The first boss who took the stage, the owner of Belo Medical Group, Miss Cristalle Henares. Unfortunately Dr. Vicki Belo was said to be in London for some medical fora so she wasn’t able to show up that night.

Second was the boss of my favourite clothing line nowadays, Mr. Ronald Pineda of Folded and Hung.

Third was Mr. Jay Aldeguer of Island Souvenirs. I was so happy to see models wearing some Island Souvenir’s shirt, I love those shirts!

Fourth was the boss of RFM and Joey Pepperoni, Mr. Joey Concepcion. All along I thought that the Chef Mr. Joey that I saw in their stores was a real Italian. (The one on their life-size stand-upper). He’s a Pinoy din pala. Hahaha!

And the last but not the least, the boss of PLDT, TV5, Cignal, Digital Television, Smart Communications and, now, Burger King Philippines, Mr. MVP himslef, Mr. Manny V. Pangilinan.

I had a great time looking up to these people who strive very hard to achieve their goals in their lives, to help their fellow Filipino uplift their livelihoods and place our country to a more stabilized economy.

Congratulations to all of you and keep up the good work!

And to inspire us more, an original song entitled “Bossing Ako” was performed by Rico Blanco and one of our country’s pride, Mr. Arnel Pineda.
