PSTD PRESIDENT

Message from the President

Ladies, gentlemen, trainers, fasten your seat belts…

Together we have reached new heights with our performance and gained altitude in delivering some of the most engaging Philippine Society for Training and Development (PSTD) programs ever. Being your president was the best opportunity I’ve ever took. It’s been a privilege to serve and work with the best talent development professionals here at PSTD for over a year. I share the optimism of our luminaries and pillars of the organization for PSTD’s bright future.

I’m immensely proud of the role PSTD has taken in enabling talent development professionals to make the Filipino talent globally competitive.

This year marked the next 50 years of PSTD, which has been a testament of our country’s commitment to talent development excellence. Year after year, we’ve shaped and transformed our programs beyond the horizon to proactively provide resources and tools needed for developing people. It’s been almost a year of amazing accomplishments across all spectrums of the organization. We grew our membership base by 35%, increased our income by 800% from the same period last year, and improved our members’ engagement through our programs and learning sessions. We also made record-breaking attendance in our Regional Summits in Manila and Davao.

We’ve made strategic decisions as we welcome 2017 with the acquisition of our new office in Grand Central Residences, Mandaluyong City, our biggest investment yet in PSTD, and strengthened partnership with Razza Consulting, a startup company, to develop the our digital platform. Each of these will open new opportunities for PSTD, and their impact will continue to be felt far into our future.

As we celebrate the 44th Philippine Training Week with the PSTD national convention in Baguio City, Elevation 2017, we will give a glimpse of the future of PSTD with the first digitally enabled convention, launch of Certified Master Trainer Program, release of myPSTD digital platform and social community, and chapter expansion.

I enjoin everyone to be confident and proud that PSTD will remain to be an organization of high morale and professionalism, inclusiveness, innovation and engagement. I cherish and celebrate PSTD’s unique principles and values. It is in our DNA as trainers and leaders to continuously develop the Filipino talent. Let us commit ourselves to the following:

  1. To provide a transformational experience designed to cater to the unique needs of varying industries and professions;
  2. To collaborate with thought leaders in bringing innovative and proven ways to improve individual and organizational performance;
  3. To empower people to make a difference in their own organizations or community and lead the change.

This is our PSTD and let us continue to climb and soar as one PSTD. I am confident our best years lie ahead of us and that together we will continue to elevate PSTD and the talent development ecosystem from where it is today.

2017 – 2018 President
