Remarks of Presentacion L. Psinakis, Lopez Inc. Chairperson at the Lopez Service Awards Night
July 2, 2014
Rockwell Center, Makati City
Good evening, mga Kapamilya.
Thank you for coming to our 4th Service Awards Night.
I want to talk briefly about talent. You know, the Lopez Group is brimming with talent. Just turn on your television and tune in to any show on ABS-CBN and you will see how much talent we have to offer to our customers and to the rest of the world.
They say talent is something you are born with, it is your potential. When you invest in and develop your talent, it becomes your strength.
For example, last summer (May 2014), the comptroller’s group sent a sizeable delegation to Tokyo for the international conference of PICPA (Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants), where the keynote speaker was my brother and our group chairman, Philippine Ambassador to Japan Manolo Lopez.
The Lopez Group continuously invests in and develops its talents, its workforce, because it wants to become strong, and stay strong. Its people are among its strengths. All of us here are the source of the group’s overall strength. Our individual contributions of time, talent and treasure, taken together, make for a stronger, wiser and better Lopez Group.
Let us remember this as we go about our daily duties. Let us recognize our value, and the value of those we work with, as we apply our different but complementary talents to the achievement of our organizational objectives.
My heartfelt congratulations to our nine awardees! Tonight, we recognize that you have used your talents to make our companies grow and succeed. I hope you enjoyed the program because a lot of work was done to make this evening a special and memorable one for you and your families.
In closing, I wish to propose a toast. May I request everyone to stand?
To our awardees, I wish you the best of health, more opportunities to develop your God-given talents, and the fortitude to pursue your dreams. Cheers!
To our companies, may we always be focused on doing what is best for our stakeholders, strong in the face of adversity, and united by the Lopez Values.
