They invited me to give a seminar at Calamba, Laguna on my specialty, Confidence Building and Personality Development. The very well attended event consisted of 80 very happy and satisfied students, professionals, and entrepreneurs who gave overwhelming responses of gratitude and delight. Later on in the year, a very successful follow-up was again held in Laguna, but on the subject of Speech and Oral Communication Development.

As busy as 2012 was, I managed to take a break in December by taking a cruise to the Eastern Mediterranean. I started my vacation in Rome where I boarded a luxury liner that took me to Greece first.
A decade ago, I decided to take short-term courses in English and Public Speaking to hone my skills. It was a toss-up between Communications Specialists and Writing Institute and another firm. When Vernon and I talked over the telephone, these were his assuring words: “Mr. Gapac, you will not regret to be part of my classes.”
