A successful businesswoman and friend of mine told me to encourage the business sectors to attend any marketing session of Josiah Go. She said that it is a mind changing business learning experience. Indeed, it was true and I witnessed it during the recently concluded Josiah Go’s Entrepreneurial Strategy and Innovation Bootcamp last August 15 and 16 at the Grand Astoria Hotel.

Despite it was Monday (busiest day of the week for most of them,) and it was salary day (Aug 15 and 16), 31 different sectors from our business community attended , stayed put and listened to his business insights and experiences for more than 8 hours. Normally, in seminars, businessmen usually slip out and escape to attend to their business first.

But with Mr. Go, they actively participated and shared their respective business experiences openly even if competitors were around. They said it was worth it and are now ready to apply what they had learned. They even look forward to a repeat, more and deeper business session with him.

Mr. Go shared realistic and practical business marketing savvy that are practical to one’s business.
A participant shared to me that he had learned a lot and could not "sleep" in the first night when he realized that there are still more opportunities and areas of growth for his business. Another commented excitedly "bien real" (translation - very good, very genuine, worth it, and loved it).

The Zamboanga City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Foundation, Inc. (ZCCCIFI) who is the main proponent of this seminar would like to express their deep gratitude to Edwin To, the chair of this successful project, and Dr. Anton Lim (whose closeness with Mr. Go made him say Yes). Thanks also to Grand Astoria Hotel, Garden Orchid Hotel, Daily Zamboanga Times, and Zamboanga Today for their support.
