This week is JGSOM Week at the Ateneo de Manila University. Every year the John Gokongwei School of Management celebrates this weeklong event where the different school organizations showcase their talents and compete among each other.
I have always felt the excitement in these activities, vicariously through my three sons, who always took part in the events. In 2011 my oldest was the representative cum manager for AMA (Ateneo Management Association), while my second son was Mr. MEA (Management Engineering Association) and won 1st runner-up in the Mr. SOM (School of Management) competition. Incidentally, the Mr. SOM title went to the one managed by my oldest son. (No hard feelings, it was a friendly competition. ) Last year, my youngest was the Mr. ACTM (Association for Communications Technology Management) and he also won 1st runner-up in Mr. SOM. This year the bunso will host the SOM Week Culminating Night.
And so when I was invited by the JGSOM Week organizers to speak on Personal Finance on October 30, 2015, I readily said yes. I will talk about Personal Finance (Making Your Money Count) at the Ching Tan Lecture Room at 5pm. The event starts at 3pm. See you there.
