Almost 30 Toastmasters delegates from Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) participated in District 75 Toastmasters Philippines’ District Convention (DisCon) held last month in Apo View Hotel, Davao City.
DisCon is an annual event of Toastmasters Philippines that gathers members nationwide. It offers three-day learning and fun experience that will further develop their skills and knowledge. Moreover, it gives them the opportunity to bond with other members.
This year’s theme was “Global Pinoy: Keeping Step with the World”. All attendees learned life tips from inspirational stories shared by seven educational speakers.
One of the speakers is BAVI’s very own and Chooks-to-Go ambassador Michael Angelo “MA” Lobrin. His topic was “The Strength of Trees is at Their Roots”. He said that the strength of an individual originates from his roots, and that the places where one thrives shape his strength.
