Pochology Academy Conducts Public Speaking Workshop for PLDT Employees Credit Cooperative


On November 26, the PLDT Employees Credit Cooperative, Inc. or PECCI organized a one-day workshop on Public Speaking and Effective Communication, held at its headquarters in Universal Re Building in Makati City. Over 20 PECCI officers and PLDT managers attended the workshop to hone their skills in public speaking, which will be useful in their business presentations, board meetings and even their everyday communication within the organization.


Pochology Academy was invited to conduct the workshop, led by its founder Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales. After some introduction and welcome remarks, the workshop began with a motivational talk by the VoiceMaster on how to speak so people will listen. During his presentation, the VoiceMaster demonstrated and shared the tools and techniques that he uses that made him one of the country’s most sought-after speakers. He emphasized that the first thing speakers need to develop is the mindset that they are public speakers in all shapes and forms, and that they should see speaking engagements as a two-way communication with the audience, instead of a lecture.

The VoiceMaster also inspired the participants to look at public speaking not just as a way to communicate their message to an audience, but also as an avenue to express what they are passionate about in a way that is inspiring and motivating to their audience. He also spoke about the power of the voice, and encouraged the participants to look at their voice as the “force” that can transform the lives of those that would receive their message.


After the VoiceMaster’s inspirational talk, Pochology Academy trainer Ada Cuaresma started the workshop proper with a group activity. She gave the participants a mini-workshop on voice, and gave them tools, techniques and exercises to develop their vocal power, and tips on how to take care of their most valuable tool in public speaking.

The voice training was followed by another mini-workshop, this time on managing public speaking anxiety and engaging the audience. The participants were led through a series of fun activities to help them become more confident, and to enable them to speak naturally and spontaneously in front of their audience. They were also given 4 elements that they can incorporate into their presentations to better involve the audience in their public speaking.


The day capped off with the participants lining up to have the VoiceMaster sign their copy of his book, “Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent,” which was given to the participants by PECCI as a token.

Pitch Perfect: Voice Care Workshop for Zoomanity Group’s Sales and Marketing Team

The Sales and Marketing team of Zoomanity Group from all over the country, including CEO's and COO's, gathered at the Misono Restaurant in Makati on February 17 for their Internal Marketing Summit. The event is a whole-day learning affair for the team, where they get to share ideas to help improve their team’s performance, and also gain knowledge and strategies outside of the theme park/zoo industry through invited guest speakers.

Carmie De Leon Sales and Marketing VP of Healthway Medical

Two speakers were invited to speak during the first half of the day. The first speaker was Carmie De Leon, Vice President for Sales and Marketing of Healthway Medical. Carmie shared her best sales and marketing practices even way back when she was starting as a Medical Representative. She spoke about how she has established relationships with her prospects and clients not only by building rapport, but also by being sensitive to their personal needs. She encouraged the participants to have the “store owner mindset,” where the sales person doesn’t just see himself as someone who sells the product, but rather, someone who is representative of the product and brand. Carmie’s unconventional yet sensible tips were truly useful for the participants of her talk, like forcing customers to complain about their service so they can further improve. Last but not the least, she shared wonderful insights from the health care industry that could very well be duplicated on their field (theme park).

Voice Care Queen Ada Cuaresma conducts Speech and Voice Training for Zoomanity Group

After the talk and a long Q&A session with the participants, up next was Voice Care Philippines’ Executive Director Ada Cuaresma, and also one of the trainers of Pochology Academy. In Ada’s talk entitled “Pitch Perfect,” Ada conducted a mini-workshop to teach participants how to be more powerful in selling and marketing through speech and voice. According to her, the “what you say” (speech) and “how you say it” should go hand-in-hand in order to make sales pitches that sell. You cannot simply improve your pitch’s content without rehearsing your presentation, and vice versa. Ada gave the participants exercises on breathing, posture, pitch and volume. She introduced both the science and the art of voice by teaching participants how to develop their vocal power and variety.

After lunch, the group did some brainstorming activities where they practiced what they have learned from the speakers in the morning.

His talk focused on self-development, and the essential elements that makes a person successful. He shared the importance of setting goals, having the right attitude and being open to learning, in order to develop one’s self as a well-rounded individual, consequently making him a great contributor to a team. Pocholo also shared his experience on working with the youth, and how YSDD can build better programs that would help young people develop and use their skills and talents towards positive social change.

The teambuilding proper commenced after Pocholo’s talk. The facilitators – Ada Cuaresma, Andrew San Fernando and Joan Banagan – led the group in activities that reinforced creativity, collaboration and teamwork. The activities were followed by a reflection, where some volunteers shared their insights on the importance of communicating with their colleagues to come up with ideas, foster camaraderie and work together towards a shared vision.
