UB's Kevin Chester Orduña with his Certificate of Completion awarded by Ebb Hinchliffe,
executive director of the American Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines
Kevin Chester Orduña, an Accountancy student of the University of Baguio, was awarded Best in Written Business Plan together with his group during the 17th Business Leadership Program (BLP) 2019 held in Makati last May.
The Written Business Plan presentation, held last May 10, was part of the 10-day BLP event hosted by the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) of the Philippines. The event gathered 32 business management student leaders from around the country, who went through a five-level rigorous screening process. The panel of judges for the screening included the John Clements Consultants, Inc.
The event participants were divided into six groups for the business plan writing, which sought to generate a proposal that revolves around financial technology that can help those who are below the poverty line in the country. Top-level managers served as members of the panel during the business plan presentation.
“We squeezed in our tight schedules the creation of our business plan with just 3-4 hours of sleep,” said Orduña, who spearheaded the creation of the financial plan of his group’s proposal.
Orduña and his team’s proposal was presented with the Best Written Business Plan at the conclusion of the presentation session by BLP chairman Jun Salipsip Jr. and AmCham executive director Ebb Hinchliffe.
Also, as part of the program, the delegates went for visits to different multi-national companies based in the country, where they met with the said companies’ top-level managers. – Dr. Kareen Leon and Kevin Chester Orduña
