GOLDEN ISLAND - The Clearest Waters in Philippines

 

First time in my life to witness this natural phenomena. Honestly have no clue what it's called but heard moon dogs? We were lucky to witness it our first night. Then we explored the nearby islands swimming in the clearest waters in Philippines. Discovering amazing coral reefs and marine life.

✽ Negotiation Skills Workshop

Time 9:00am - 5:00pm
Venue Makati Diamond Residences

It also helps develop the right skill-set for behaving in the negotiating table, discover how to avoid errors which can break the deal, identify, use and overcome negotiating tactics which crafty negotiators can use against you, and learn how to read and use body language to clarify exactly what the other party is trying to say or to hide.
