A few years ago, I cringed at the term “influential” or “inspirational.” I always thought calling oneself as such was too self-serving.
But influence, when done right, can do a lot of things, especially for the community. It allows you to empower others to become movers and
shakers, it builds hope, and it pushes you to do more so you can affect more people.
I’ve seen how influence drives Janette Toral to promote better e-commerce in the country, Hannah Amora to bring more attention and support to
a serious heart condition affecting children, and different blogging societies all over the country to the current needs and plight of our fellow
It’s our influence to one another that keeps us dreaming, planning, and doing. With the strong use of social media, we’re able to amplify such
positive power to multifold, scattering it to different corners of the world.
But like any other value, it needs to be cultivated, enhanced, and used more effectively. Thus, iNewMedia Online Network, Cebu Bloggers Society, Cebu Blog Camp, Ilo-Ilo Bloggers Society, and Google Business Group have organized the country’s first-ever Social Media Influencers Summit. Experts such as Maria
A. Ressa, Maryjane Cabrera, Hannah Almira Amora, Attorney Ethelbert Ouano, Janette Toral, Fitz Gerald Villafuerte, and Lisa Marie Mirasol
will provide the participants with the most essential points to harness the various social media tools for overall betterment of the community.
The summit is scheduled on March 16, 2013, at J Centre Convention . Join us and learn how to spread the good via social media.
Thank you to our co-presentors J Centre Convention Hall, J Centre Mall, and Smart Communications. We’d also like to thank our Platinum Sponsor Bluewater Resorts, Bronze Sponsor Click Photo Club, and patrons Bluewater Sumilon, Bluewater Panglao, and Bluewater Maribago.
