Thinking of starting your own business in the Philippines? Switzerland-based Arnel Talisayon will share his knowledge, during the Consulate’s Economic Diplomacy webinar on Financial Literacy, on the practical things that startups in the Philippines should expect. He will discuss the challenges and opportunities often encountered by overseas Filipinos and their families when engaging in a business. He will also explore other important aspects of financial education, such as retirement and social security, and attempt to answer the question: is establishing a business the ultimate goal of financial education?
Mr. Talisayon joined the Department of Foreign Affairs in 2003 and is currently assigned at the Philippine Mission in Geneva, where he handles intellectual property issues. He began teaching financial education to overseas Filipinos in 2009 while stationed at the Philippine Embassy in South Korea.
He graduated from the UP College of Business Administration in 2001, where he ranked third in his batch. He also studied Business and Economics, as a fulltime exchange student at the Meiji Gakuin University in Japan from 1998 to 1999 and was a student fellow in Communication Studies at the Nanyang Technological University of Singapore in 2001.
Join us this Saturday, August 29, at 10:30 a.m. when the Philippine Consulate General in Frankfurt streams live, here in its Facebook page, its Economic Diplomacy webinar on Financial Literacy! See you then!
