One of the fun perks of being a part of La Salle Dance Company - Street’s Executive Board (as the Division Manager - Marketing) this year is I get to plan a team building for my committee. This is one of the best projects where I can bond with my committee, brainstorm and share ideas together, and build closer relationships with them so when work comes in our way, we already know how to work cohesively with each other using our strengths and capabilities in terms of marketing the organization in the funnest way ever. Although, it was partly sad that we were not complete because four (4) of my committee members were not able to attend due to school commitments. They missed out the fun, but I won’t let my term end without giving them the fun bondings I want them to experience.
At 7:30 AM, we all met up at McDonald’s UPad in Taft, then we headed to Green Lens Studio for our first activity which is… a photo shoot! Since we’re all fash (yes, i’m claiming it) and we love photo shoots, I included this in our program to start our day right.
We named this set “Skinbeats” which explains music + semi-bare fashion. We thought of outfits that we would wear if, for example, we’re gonna go to a music festival under the scorching sun, like Coachella.
Our photographer was no other than the amazing Ikat Gallardo (one of the former members of Marketing Committee and a two-year Division Manager - Production and Logistics)!
At 12:00 NN, we all headed to Bonifacio High Street to eat lunch and there, I gave them their first challenge.
It was too hard for us to get over with the studio shoot, so we brought it outdoors, huehuehue!
~ and we can’t stop, and we won’t stop…
At 2:00 PM, we checked in at the Richmonde Hotel in Ortigas where we held the rest of the activities. We just had fun with the seminars we did. We invited two of our alumni members, Drew Sha (for Social Media & Events talk) and Trish Deluria (for Adobe Photoshop tutorial), and I’m very happy that they learned so much from the talks, especially with Photoshop!! I also showed to them the inspirational video messages prepared by our gorgeous women who are former Division Managers of Marketing, and they had so much insights from them.
I can say that I am so blessed to have such amazing, talented, skilled, enthusiastic, hardworking, fashown, and most of all, loving kids in my very own committee. This school year indeed brought us to the toughest that we can ever get, and adding to that is the one that’s coming up in a few, but I know for a fact that we got each other’s backs and we’ll succeed and just celebrate all these. Together forever, I love you Fash Marketing Kids! This won’t be my last blog post about our committee cliquishness, haha! There’s more to come, says daddy. Why am I being cheesy?
