He talked about his childhood dream of hearing his voice on the radio greeting his mother, and how it led to his vision of making the Philippines the center of voiceover excellence in Asia.

Pocholo then transitioned his talk on marketing, and how one can establish his/her brand to compete on a global scale. He touched on a bit about global brands such as Google, Facebook and even 7-11, and how these brands have gained top-of-mind awareness despite not having extensive ad campaigns. Pocholo said that being a global brand – be it a person or a company – all boils down to the experience that they provide, in order to give people something to talk about.

Pocholo’s talk did not only focus on the technical aspect of marketing. He also inspired the students by challenging them to discover their purpose, and to do things with passion and commitment. He shared to them how his success as the VoiceMaster was not purely about what he has done with his skill, but more importantly his passion and zeal to make the Philippines the center of voiceover excellence in Asia. He also shared the qualities that make a successful entrepreneur and marketer.

The VoiceMaster Teaches Human Superpowers in ‘One Right Direction’

One hundred young adults – students and young professionals – filled the roofdeck of Prestige Tower Condominium in Ortigas on February 13, 2016 for the 3rd year of “One Right Direction”. This event aims to educate people who would like to build and explore various income sources, specifically on investing their money in the stock market.

Three motivational speakers were featured in the event to share their expertise not only in business, but also on personal development. The first speaker was trainer, author and sales coach Veni Flores of Money Masters Club. Veni shared the process of achieving goals in a simple and easy-to-understand roadmap. He also inspired the audience to act because, he said, that acting upon one’s desire is the first step to getting to their destination.

The VoiceMaster Speaks about the 10 Great Powers to Become a Real-Life Superhero

The second speaker was Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales – CEO of Creativoices Productions, and founder of Pochology Academy. Pocholo shared what he calls the “10 Great Powers” that would help anyone achieve their dreams. He began his talk by sharing his own personal journey as an entrepreneur, and how his love and talent for the voice made him who he is today. The 10 great powers he shared included self-confidence, purpose, and extraordinary performance. To the VoiceMaster, it all boils down to how a person builds his SELF-WORTH, instead of his NET WORTH, that would determine his success in life.

Last but not the least is Pesos and Sense founder Aya Laraya, who gave an informative talk about the stock market, and what aspiring investors need to know. He emphasized the need to seek professional advice when it comes to financial investments instead of simply reading articles online that may not even apply to their locale or level. Aya also gave a simplified explanation on the benefit of purchasing stocks, and how to wisely choose which companies to invest in.

Before the closing and final photo op, the country’s youngest motivational speaker – 10-year-old Patrick Gabriel Gonzales (son of the VoiceMaster) – amazed the audience by sharing his own insights on investing. In a short and sweet talk, Patrick motivated the audience by encouraging them to believe in themselves, that they have greatness within them and that they all have the power to succeed.

Simply put, as long as you know what you’re doing, why you’re doing it and where you are going… you are already a success.”

After the VoiceMaster’s empowering talk, Ada Cuaresma came up onstage to do a mini-workshop with the participants regarding professionalism in the workplace. Ada started her talk by defining professionalism, and how it’s a set of characteristics that make up a quality worker, and not just about physical image or first impression.
