I thank God for this opportunity to bring Ho Sun Yee to Bacolod. I wish all leaders, managers are here - how we can innovate, challenge status quo, change our attitudes, look at internal and external disrupters to lift our city and province, drive the goals and targets of our communities. Think out of the box. - Jocelle Batapa Sigue

Tired of mediocrity??? Why do we end up having mediocre leaders? Is it a question of changing leaders or starting the seed of innovation within our culture as a people. Maybe it is time for changing mindsets. Leaders are personalities who come and go, blame them if you must - but can we also do something about our way of thinking. Company culture (or a culture of the community) must also be examined.
