The Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship – Go Negosyo is all set to fly to the Kingdom of Bahrain next week for the very first Negosyo Seminar (NegoSem) in West Asia. This will be the second time that Go Negosyo is holding its entrepreneurship training outside the country, next to Rome, Italy in 2010.

Go Negosyo’s resident resource speakers also known as its pool of Angelpreneurs (angels to entrepreneurs) are expected to inspire and teach our fellow Filipinos working in that part of the world how to best invest their savings as Overseas Filipino Workers, through entrepreneurship. They are Dean Francisco Lapid (former dean, Entrepreneurs School of Asia), Mr. Butz Bartolome (President, GMB Franchise Developers, Inc.), Prof. Reuel Virtucio (Vice-President, Punla sa Tao Foundation) and Mr. Michael Angelo Lobrin (Author, Laugh with God Today).


Currently, according to an ABS-CBN news article dated May 19, 2012, there are about 40,000 Filipinos based in Bahrain. The Philippine Embassy in Bahrain and the Bahrain Filipino Club recognize the potential of harnessing the entrepreneurial spirit of our kababayan so they could better invest the ‘fruits of their labors for their family back home.

The NegoSem sa Bahrain is scheduled on June 8, 2012 at the Bahrain Society of Engineers Auditorium, in the country’s capital, Manama. The Go Negosyo delegation is headed by its Programs Development Manager Ms. Stephanie Dy Tiapco who will also share to the participants what Go Negosyo does as a Philippine-based non-governmental organization and as an advocacy that promotes positive change in mindset and entrepreneurship.

Interested participants may call Ms. Emma Palma (Philippine Embassy) at 17721234 or Ms. Rose Hernandez (Filipino Club) at 36474596 or Ms. Maricel Puig (Filipino Club) at 33048310 or e-mail [email protected]
