Acer Philippines, Inc. went here in Davao last November 28, 2016 to meet with their school partners who are under their Acer Academy Program. This particular event was held at the Tnalak Room at the Mezzanine floor of Seda Abreeza Hotel in J.P. Laurel Avenue, Bajada, Davao City.
Acer Philippines gathered its school partners for an exclusive session and gave updates regarding the latest and most innovative products from Acer and other developments from its global partner – Microsoft.
Later in the afternoon, the Acer Academy program partners got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet Acer’s newest campaign ambassador, top inspirational speaker, newspaper columnist, author and award-winning business consultant Francis Kong.
With the theme “Are you Kong-nected?,” Mr. Kong delivered an exclusive learning experience on teaching and community building. Among his other topics include getting connected to what teachers teach, defining gaps, connecting and what educators should do, and even the progress in being connected.
Being one of the country’s most recognized inspirational speakers, Mr. Kong also provided inspiring stories and his spot-on observation of all aspects of life and how it can be related to enrich one’s personal and professional being. He also talked on how technology plays in people’s everyday lives, particularly those in the academic community.
