Subic workshops set to help promote Phl’s competitiveness

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT, (PIA) -- Globally-acknowledged competitiveness gurus will share their expertise on quality, productivity, workplace cooperation and benchmarking in the forthcoming national symposium-workshops to be held here from March 27 to 30.

The symposium-workshops are being organized through a public-private-partnership (PPP) between Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) and Quality Partners Co., Ltd. (QPCL).

The event is divided into two parts. First, a pre-symposium seminar-workshop on “Scientific Benchmarking for Excellence” which will be held on March 27 and 28. The seminar-workshop dubbed as “Workplace Cooperation for Quality, Productivity and Competitiveness,” will be conducted on March 29 to 30.
Both will be held at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center (SBECC) in this free port.

Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman Roberto Garcia said the symposium-workshops are projected to be the initial activities in a long-range quest to develop it into a National Center for Excellence and a Resource Center for Quality and Productivity Information and Training with the Subic Freeport as the hub.

Garcia said the SBMA and QPCL are undertaking the project in the belief that quality, workplace cooperation and excellence will lift the country’s global competitiveness.

The pre-symposium seminar-workshop will be conducted by Dr. Robin Mann, chairman of the Global Benchmarking Network of New Zealand, a membership-based organization with members in more than 20 countries and founder-head of the Center for Organizational Excellence Research (COER), Massey University, which undertakes research projects — both focusing on business excellence and benchmarking.

Mann has helped over 300 organizations undertake self-assessment, written 30 refereed journal papers, 100 non-refereed papers, six short books and has been a frequent keynote presenter in 15 countries in 2011.

Meanwhile, Dr. Jose Gatchalian, chairman of QPCL, will address the participants of the seminar-workshop on workplace cooperation with his keynote piece entitled, “Workplace Cooperation: A Cutting Edge for Quality, Productivity and Competitiveness.”

Joining Dr. Gatchalian will be GlobeTel Philippines president Ernest Cu, who will discuss “Workplace Cooperation: Customer First Circle” and University of the Philippines Vice President Dr. M.S.V. Amante, who will talk about “Workplace Diversity and Cross-Cultural Work Relations.”

Meanwhile, the panel discussion will be conducted by panelists composed of successful and prominent resource speakers who shall share their experience and expertise in their respective field.

The symposium will be open to all top management executives and shop-floor leaders.
