On August 8, 2015, Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales joined fellow motivational speakers Al Ian Barcelona, Ruben Lanot, PJ Lanot and Johner Fernandez in the SSG Division Leadership Training and Strategic Planning for Students and Advisers, held at the Sarabia Manor Hotel in Iloilo City.
With the theme “Strategic and Effective Leadership Towards Campus Governance,” more than 800 students were entertained, motivated and empowered in a day filled with motivational talks and teambuilding activities. The VoiceMaster talked about “generational leadership,” where he discussed the valuable components of passion, purpose, influence and inspiration that define the true makings of a leader. He also spoke about the capacity and ability of the youth to be able to lead their fellow youth, as long as they uncover their greatness within.
In the afternoon, the VoiceMaster also conducted a 3-hour workshop to over 200 teachers on Voice Care. He gave the teacher tips, exercises and helpful information on how to take care of the voice, especially since it is the teacher’s most important teaching tool. He also talked about learning in the 21st century, and gave his piece of advice to teachers in handling today’s students in the classroom, which is also known as the Generation Z.
The day capped off with some teambuilding activities and a fun dance number from the awesome speakers!
