“If you are lost, always remember your roots.” Sasuke once told Naruto.
Ah the Good Times. I write this in perspective to something Anton Diaz blogged about a couple of days ago when I met him, Regnard Raquedan and Prof. Lim from AIM. It was a comfortable meeting, with much allusion to the fact that a lot of my roots were painted among the walls of the Asian Institute of Management (where both my parents met – my dad was a student, mom was the professor’s secretary — hee!).
This was a significant day for me. I met with Professor Ricky Lim of AIM, Regnard Raquedan of AIM blogger fame and Jayvee Fernandez of abuggedlife. We shared a common vision of transforming the Asian Institute of Management (AIM MBA School) into being the foremost recognized educational institution for Internet Marketing and Social Marketing in South East Asia.
I took in a teaching position last year at AIM (yes, dad was proud – he taught case study there as well). The goal was to set up a series of electives for social media marketing – AIM being the premier in case studies and having a rich history in MBA’s – and paired together with several mavens from the local new media scene. I was point of contact. We brought in Anton. Regnard was, by default the famous “AIM blogger.” There are a ton more. I love meeting brilliant people who want nothing less than changing this country for the better. It’s my passion. It’s what makes me completely happy.
And we really do plan to grow this into something big: I’m surprised I can even write about it.
Ah, The Good Times. And it, I assure you, always comes from roots.
