“It was I think my first or second year teaching and we ran a top management program. It’s about four five days or something and we got a lot of high-level people. In fact one of my classmates was one of the Gokongwei sisters. And of course they invite big name professors as well. I remember they invited professor Steve Rogers–not Captain America, I was the only one who got that–from Harvard Business School. I was this Econ teacher from Ateneo, and if you’re from here you’d know that life is different in a university as opposed to in a business school. Ateneo is in Quezon City, and it was my first time in Makati. As I said, Lisa Gokongwei was my classmate, and here’s a Harvard Business School professor teaching us something about… actually I forgot. But I remember just being wowed by his whole style. And then all of a sudden, apparently Stan Shih was a guest speaker. And for me, it was just so amazing, because I think that’s what AIM represented to me–and it still does now. It sounds corny but I feel like it’s a window to a bigger world, which I wasn’t used to back in Quezon City.”  #HumansofAIM #LifeatAIM
