First of all, I want to say THANK YOU in the TRUEST MEANING of the word. I realized that it is not only that you know how to speak English, but you must also know how to DELIVER it correctly. I am now sure that I am READY to talk to Americans anywhere in the world! I really enjoyed this seminar -- it is the MOST EXCITING and AMAZING seminar I have attended in my 28 years at PCSO. I LOVE YOU, Vernon!
Josefina Sarabia - Division Chief
It is a very special privilege to attend this seminar! To listen to an intellectual full of wisdom who also knows how to live life to the fullest made me feel so lucky. The presentation was very clear and can be used as a guide on how to be SUCCESSFUL and HAPPY. I’ve also learned the names of authors of books that can help me to have a more meaningful life and be able to help others. Thanks so much!
Sheila Marie Hasta - Accounting Specialist I
After 27 years in service, I can say that this seminar is the BEST! It’s like I’m the only one in the room and you were talking only to me. That is why I was only too attentive when you were discussing all the topics. The WISDOM you shared, the smiles, and the laughter (you’re so funny!) are UNFORGETTABLE. I will always treasure everything you taught us and I’m very thankful to PCSO for letting me attend this kind of seminar. Thank you so much and more power! God bless you!!
Lady Elaine Gatdula - Chief Lottery Operations Officer
I want to express my gratitude to you for imparting to us your knowledge on Effective Communications. I have been in this office for the past several years and have attended various seminars and I just want to tell you that yours is the BEST EVER! I discovered my self-worth. Before we can be happy, we have to believe that we are worthy. How you feel about yourself is what matters most. Hope to see you again, God bless, and keep safe always.
Ellery Castro - OIC/Division Chief
Thank you so much for imparting not only your skills and knowledge to us, but your OWN SELF. We all felt the sincerity in your sharing and it was much easier for us to comprehend your lectures because of this. I really had fun and I learned a lot from you I consider this the most WONDERFUL and MEMORABLE seminar I have ever attended.
Rowena Corral - OIC/Division Chief
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to be with us these past three days -- it has been a very good experience! I have learned that being assertive doesn’t mean being disrespectful and that speaking my mind is alright and does not mean I have to argue with others. I have to say that the Success and Confidence Building portion was my favourite. With what you have shared, I have learned to accept my flaws and mistakes and made me appreciate the person that I am NOW. I will definitely hold this seminar close to my heart and try my best to SPREAD THE WORD. Again, thank you for the guidance.
Lucy Yap-Cobrado - Team Leader/Supervisor
Thank you! It’s been my DREAM to attend this kind of seminar. In fact, I was planning to save enough money to enroll at ____________, but I’m so glad that we got you -- the BEST MENTOR. In just three days, I’ve already learned all that I need to learn. I just have to put them into practice. It really is a LIFE-CHANGING and INSPIRING seminar and now, I’m full of SELF-CONFIDENCE. Again, thank you so much!
Montgomery Fragata - Export Team Leader
Thank you so much for this intellectual and very lively training. I appreciate all that you taught us. The Business and Technical Writing lessons will help a lot because I have a problem writing even simple e-mail messages. Thank you for coming into our lives! You are an INSPIRATION.
Edith Baysa - TOMG Specialist
Of all the trainings I have attended, I have to say that this is the MOST INSPIRING one. I would not be able to list everything that I have learned on this one page only. On our first day, I opened my eyes to the fact that I alone, am responsible for my own happiness. Being a single lady, I have had the habit of relying on people and material things to be happy. Now, I will enjoy each day and make the most of it. I will LOVE MYSELF and be an inspiration to others. The second day inspired me to read so I can broaden my knowledge of the English language and today, on our last day, I learned so much again about written communications. Thank you!
Rochel Bisnar - Accounting Manager
Thanks a lot for being part of my learning experience! I find your lessons on how to build one’s confidence to be VERY REAL. You are one of the few people I’ve met who has no pretensions and I like WHO YOU ARE! I learned a good deal about how to pronounce words and the Business and Technical Writing topics were also very relevant in my role and I appreciate them a lot. Hope that our paths will cross again in the future. All the best. Cheers!
Vanessa Marie Agudo - Supply & Logistics Manager
I like your class and ADMIRE you as a teacher. You have refreshed my ideas and helped me to open up to the current trend of GLOBALIZATION. Thank you for the jokes, kind compliments, and encouragement! I am hoping too that someday, should we meet again even if you don’t remember me, I will already be the BETTER PERSON that you envision me to be.
Mary Joyce Silva - Order Handler
Sir Vernon, thanking you is NOT ENOUGH to express my feelings. I’m blessed and honoured that someone like you taught me how to be a great engineer of the world. I learned to be optimistic on the first day. Then, on the second day I learned how to be a good speaker -- your techniques are so effective! On the last day, I learned so much about writing letters. Thank you and God bless!
Markcleen Cual - Service Engineer
First, I was hesitant to attend because we have been provided seminars like this many times before and they have always been the same -- boring and a waste of time. But, when I attended your class, I was so glad I did! I learned a lot from the life-changing stories and beliefs shared by you which helped me to come out of my shell and express myself more. I believe that all the participants in this seminar have actually CHANGED in one way or another. I’m hoping to have something from you again in the future. Thanks and God bless!
Merba Balena - Executive Assistant
Listening to you for three days gave me a wake-up call. I’m really glad that you conducted this seminar while I’m still young because you made me realize that I have so much potential and I should not just keep it inside. From now on, I will be confident and I won’t let my fears stop me from DOING and GETTING what I want. I will definitely not put my precious life to waste. THANK YOU!
Rhodette April Cariño - Executive Assistant
I enjoyed and learned so much in your seminar. Among all the seminars I attended previously, this is absolutely the BEST ONE. Aside from the correct way to pronounce words, I also learned how to speak in public. I have two grandchildren and I plan to enrol them in your school -- I believe that if they start young, learning what you have taught us will benefit them in the future. More power to you!
Maria Fe Campued - Executive Assistant
The seminar made me analyze myself and because of this, I have learned to become a better person. It has given me the drive to strive hard and make goals to achieve success not only for myself, but also for The Firm. Add to this, your Public Speaking class made me overcome my stage fright and helped me to freely express myself! This program is something that I will TREASURE for the rest of my life. Thank you.
Meriam Garcia - General Accountant
To tell you frankly, I have undergone speech training before at the Philippine Air Force, but what I have learned from you is very DIFFERENT. I learned so much from you and I intend to pass it on to my future students here at the MIAA and the PAF. You made me much more confident than I am and for this I’m very grateful!
Captain Paul Fudotan - Section Chief, Aerobridge 2 Section Q
Thank you for teaching us how to develop our communication skills. Your tips on how to become a good speaker, improve our pronunciation and grammar, and how to achieve success helped me a lot. Mr. Tapalla, you are a very good speaker and I really idolize you! I hope you continue helping others the way you do.
Nory Ayado - Accounting 3
Mr. Tapalla, this is the BEST TRAINING I have ever had in my entire life and you are the BEST SPEAKER I have ever known! Thank you for imparting and sharing your knowledge with us. Your lessons on speech, success, and public speaking helped me a lot. Thank you so much.
Rhoda Belisario - Office Admin. Staff
Your program changed me. Honestly, now it is all clear to me that whenever there are challenges, all it takes is a lot of courage and discipline to do it. God bless you! YOU’RE REALLY GOOD!
Curie Gonzales - HR Assistant
I am happy that I got the opportunity to join your program. This is MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANY OTHER PROGRAM because you taught me how to live my life. I will try my best to remember everything you taught me so that I can be truly happy. In our department, we are given the opportunity to present papers and studies in conferences and your tips will come in handy for that. I hope I can have the same confidence as you in public speaking. More power to you!
John Silden Baclas - Administrative Division Chief
I want to thank you for training us for the past two lovely days. I really learned a lot! You re-ignited our desire to be the best in what we do. You are really good in inspiring people to make themselves better, but what I learned best that I will treasure for the rest of my life is to communicate and express my ideas clearly to succeed and achieve my goals.
Dave Uy - Business Consultant
Let me express my appreciation to you for conducting this much valued course to our company. It was truly an inspirational and highly-motivating session. The coming days will be spent in isolation in order for me to absorb and re-think my general attitude towards myself and my life. Thank you!
David Jacob - President & CEO
