Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) Vice Chairperson and General Manager Royina Marzan-Garma, together with Marijane Burgan, Executive Assistant for Administration and OIC-AGM for Administration Remeliza M. Gabuyo, headed the five-day seminar dubbed: “Training of Trainers” which was held in Tagaytay City from July 7 to 11, 2021.
The seminar aims to develop future in-house talents that may be of potential exploit as resource speakers/trainers for the PCSO.
A total of 31 employees were selected to attend the first batch of participants of the seminar.
Also, AGM Gabuyo said participants will surely benefit from the 5-day seminar as they need additional training hours which is critical for their future application for promotion.
“This would definitely help in their deficiency of training hours as they seek to apply higher positions for their promotion and at the same time will equip them further in their supervisory skills development and decision making,” AGM Gabuyo said.
OIC-Manager of the Corporate Planning Department Agnes S. Ibera was invited as content provider during the first day of training, in which she shared valuable historical information about PCSO— its mission, vision, goals and targets.
Lawyer Liza Inciong said that this seminar is only part one of four modules that PCSO’s HR Department was cooking up for the participants and future selected employees to attend the training.
PCSO tapped PBGen. Idelbrandi N. Usana as Head Training Consultant for the duration of the whole seminar but was also accompanied by another trainer named PLT. Nomer B. Macaraig whom chipped out during the afternoon session of the first day until the next day. Both training consultants devised the seminar filled with group activities and exercises to enhance individual skills of participants not only in public speaking but confidence in their work as well.
The training modules contents, methodology, objectives with the addition of fun in the learning process helped prepare the participants in having a clearer picture on what topic they were assigned and will have to present and defend in front of a panel headed by GM Garma, AGM Gabuyo, Atty. Inciong, EA Marijane Burgan and PBGen Usana on the final training day.
GM Garma was overall impressed with the oral defense of all the participants. It was really both nerve-wracking and satisfying to the attendees as one by one they presented a seven-minute defense. The awarding of certificates of completion and a photo opportunity capped off a successful first batch campaign in empowering in-house/home-grown talents whom can be now tapped as future trainers.
