ACC 2017

PLDT Global hosted the annual Asian Carriers Conference (ACC 2017) in Shangrila Mactan. Thousands of delegates from telecommunications and technology companies flew in from different parts of the world to attend one of the most premiere industry events in the region.

The keynote speaker of the event was Silicon Valley based venture capitalist, best-selling author, and former Chief Evangelist of Apple, Guy Kawasaki. In his speech, he outlined 10 Art of Transformation tips for the companies in attendance. He often referred to lessons learned while working with his former boss at Apple, Steve Jobs.

Our good friend, GadgetPilipinas, wrote an exhaustive summary of Guy Kawasaki’s talk. You can read it here.

Another major speaker in the event was our very own Miss Universe, Pia Wurtzbach. She shared her experience on how she used social media to be able to win the Miss Universe competition. She also mentioned that to this day she manages her own social media accounts, something that a lot of a-list celebrities have stopped doing.

Several workshops, social activities, and networking sessions were held throughout the 5-day conference. If you want to attend next year’s ACC, be sure to check their Facebook Page for more information in the next few months. It’s definitely one of the top technology industry events you can catch every year.

Full Disclosure: Carlo Ople, our founder and EIC, is currently with PLDT as their VP for Digital Strategy.

What he lacks in technical know-how he makes up with a wealth of cultural knowledge--hence he writes (or should be writing) Movie Reviews and other things like men's fashion and whatnot.
