The Junior Managers and Marketing Council of the Systems Plus College Foundation in Angeles City, Pampanga held its first Marketing 101 seminar entitled “Juanders of Marketing” on March 19, 2016. The event aimed to develop students as future marketing professionals and business leaders of the country through the featured speakers who shared their hands-on experience and life lessons in their respective fields.
Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales was one of the speakers during the event. In his talk entitled, “Innovation is my Motivation,” Pocholo talked largely about having the right mindset when it comes to marketing and being a marketing professional. He inspired the youth to develop the mindset of an innovator, which means that they have to constantly think about self-development and improvement. He advised the participants to become “futurists” – to act today with the future in mind.
Pocholo also shared his own personal journey towards innovating himself and establishing his brand as the VoiceMaster. He told of how he started as a voice artist to becoming an icon of his own industry, not because of his talent, but because of how he has honed and developed the skills and talents of other people. He also talked about how he has founded one of the largest volunteer youth organizations in the country, Voice of the Youth Network, and why young people hold a special place in his heart.
Pocholo shared his own three rules on innovation, which all boils down to striking a balance between taking control of one’s life, and having faith that things turn out for the best. Of course, the VoiceMaster’s talk would not be complete without his repertoire of character voices, which left his audience amazed and mesmerized.
