The best form of education is by example. There is no better way of presenting it but by immersing subjects to where the example is.

And that is what The Aboitiz Group’s Aboitiz Future Leaders Business Summit (AFLBS) is all about. Through this program, ninety students from all over the country is given the chance to participate in a two-day activity that can prepare them to become the future leaders for their role in nation-building, inspire them to develop a renewed faith in the country, and motivate them to respond to the everyday call of leadership.

For the second time, this years theme is still “Significantly changing my Philippines“.
