The R2 Group of Companies held its very first Appreciation Night on July 6, 2016 at the Berjaya Makati Hotel. Around 50 of their Nail Technicians in one of their salon brands, Nail-A-Holics, were given recognition for their service to the company for 5 to 8 years.
The event started with some opening remarks from R2 Group of Companies CEO, Ramon De Ubago III, better known in the company as RDU. RDU expressed his gratitude for the awardees who have stayed on with the company from its inception from 8 years ago. He also expressed his hope for the awardees to be part of the company’s bright future.
Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales graced the event as the invited motivational speaker. In his talk which he called “8 To Be Great,” the VoiceMaster talked about 8 P’s that represent the qualities that make of a great person. He discussed how great people have puso (passion), paniniwala (belief), pangarap (dream), and pagkakataon (opportunity), among many others. He inspired the audience to serve as an inspiration to the newer Nail Technicians in the company, and to always look at their work from a place of gratitude despite hardships and personal challenges. In support to RDU’s speech, the VoiceMaster encouraged the awardees to become part of fulfilling the vision of the company.
The VoiceMaster also entertained the audience with his “hugot lines” and repertoire of voice impressions.
