Asia Leaders Awards Cocktail Hour: Thoughts, Curiosities and the Lighter Side

Even without the pandemic, virtual events have been on the rise for the last several years, and they’re not going away. Lots of online shows happening left and right due to reduced physical activities as mandated by the national government that usually tackle dialogues about business and leadership.

This year, Asia Leaders Forums and Awards will present the exemplary leaders in the Philippines with a twist, to discuss anything under the sun, their advocacy and passion. No more of those mind setting heavy presentations about the usual business scenario or lectures about their companies, we have a global health crisis, we’re in a survival mode.

So we present ALA 2021 COCKTAIL HOUR, the leaders when they folded their sleeves after the heavy workload.

Kwentuhan will be between the leaders with the resident host, award winning and talented entrepreneur and comedian Frida Nepomuceno, daughter of master impressionist Willie Nepomuceno. Very fitting to make the show as unique as possible to highlight the lighter side of success as squeeze from the guests.
