Hi! I am Malvin.
As a start-up team leader for over 12 years in advertising, marketing, business development and professional training, I learned that real leaders don’t have escape plan. They jump into their passion and fly.
My first job as a sales person in a publishing company was to rove around the metro and check if my book titles were well displayed in the bookstore shelves. This is when I also learned to value books as a companion for personal growth. Today, I am living my passion to inspire others to pursue their passion, motivate people to create value and help entrepreneurs grow their business.
I worked with publishing, events, advertising and digital marketing companies. As a project manager, I had the opportunity to work with notable brands, such as- The WOW Group (WOW Videoke), I-Foods, Inc. (Stackers Burger), Internationale Globale Marques, Inc., Barbie Philippines, Capsinesis, Elabram Systems, Comfac Group of Companies and Anviz Philippines. I am an accredited consultant of Asian Development Bank for developing IT systems and web portals. With this, I spearheaded a project with the Department of Labor and Employment and developed an online employment regulations portal.
Handling marketing problems taught me a lot of lessons about people, technology and business. Then, I found myself sharing those stories to my audience.
I never thought I that I can speak in front of an audience until an opportunity came that I shared the stage and talked about servant leadership with top-ranked public speaker Mr. Boris Joaquin at Max’s Restaurant’s Managers Convention in 2013. I received such a warm recognition from the client. I never thought I could do public speaking with confidence. It was a turning point for me.
One of the training programs that had an impact in my life is Lead Like Jesus (The Servant Leader Workshop), a transformational leadership module developed by Ken Blanchard, which I also serve as an accredited workshop facilitator. It taught me the importance of personal leadership in the transformational leadership cycle and the language of real leadership is service to others.
I was invited to speak to educational institutions such as Ramon Pascual Institute, Lyceum of the Philippines- Cavite, Abada College- Mindoro, Casiguran National High School, Baler National High School, Polytechnic University of the Philippines- Paranaque, Manila and San Pedro Campuses and University of Perpetual Help System-DALTA. I talk about leadership, strategic marketing, personal growth, work excellence and entrepreneurship. It is my mission to inspire and equip students to become global leaders. I disturb working professionals’ complacency and challenge them to become a star performer in the workplace. I didn’t know that I was doing something remarkable until it was recognized. In February 2017, I received the KAMASKOM Alumni Icon Award from my Alma Mater, initiated by my college professors.
In partnership with AIB Training, I am a regular resource speaker of Manila Bulletin’s Career and Job Fair, inspiring job seekers to build their personal brand online and standout during job interviews. I have a regular once a month segment in School of Life Radio entitled START TODAY, a motivational and personal leadership talk aired through 8TriMedia DZRJ 810 Radio every Saturday, 10 am to 12 nn.
Lastly, I wrote an ebook about how you can use your past mistakes as springboard to success- START TODAY: What You Should Have Done Since Day 1. If you want to receive a FREE copy of this ebook, click HERE.
