Workshop series for emerging Filipino community leaders

Previous posts

The 125 Organizing Committee has initiated workshops to develop future leaders in the Filipino Community, focusing on improving crucial leadership skills.

This initiative follows the successful commemoration of the 125th anniversary of Philippine Independence, channelling the event’s surplus funds into a program designed to bolster event organizing, grant application writing, and public speaking abilities among emerging leaders.

The development of this initiative began in November 2023, when Consul General Maria Lourdes Salcedo, who was instrumental in the success of the Philippine Independence Day celebration events, proposed the idea. Subsequently, Lee Montajes of Motivationalee was enlisted to create a targeted training program, overcoming initial challenges to secure a lineup of skilled professionals for the workshops.

With financial stewardship ensuring the workshops consume only a portion of the celebration’s profits and with additional resources provided by the Philippine Consulate General (PCG) Melbourne, the program reflects a significant investment in the Filipino community leadership pipeline. The workshops have been designed to cover key areas vital for effective leadership and community engagement.

On April 13th, the inaugural session of the workshop series on Event Management took place. Led by industry experts Simon McCluskey and Liz Honey, participants delved into the core aspects of planning and executing successful events. The workshop emphasized practical skills such as creating efficient timelines, managing budgets, orchestrating logistics, and negotiating with vendors, equipping attendees with the tools needed for professional event management.
