Effective Presentations: The Wow Factor Vol. 1, No. 05 * 16 March 2009 By JCI Sen. MENNEN M. ARACID, ITF Trainer and Developmental Consultant How would you gauge if a speaker is effective or boring? I'd most likely use my feelings as one of the final gauges. I find as many opportunities to isten to presentations and learn from as many presenters as I can. I then go home and see what I can do to improve my presentations. Some tips: 1. Identify a key message and build content around it. What do you want your audience to walk away with after they listen to you? It might be ...

4 Mortal Sins of Recruitment Vol. I, No. 05 * 13 March 2009 By JCI Sen. REGINALD T. YU, ITF Trainer, Inspirational Speaker and Author, Communicator Have you not been successful in recruiting volunteers, and seem to hit a wall of apathy every time you make a sales pitch for JCI? Are there populations you’d love to involve but who do not seem attracted to your organization? For a movement to grow we need people who genuinely believe in that movement. Junior Chamber International keenly recognizes the huge potential of warm bodies to execute its myriad of programs. In fact, “membe...

The true reason for success Vol. 1, No. 10 * March 12, 2009 By JCI Mem. ANGELO DANIEL R. PARCON 2007 President Behind the success of every man is a woman.

These sayings could go on and on about what is the reason for success in everything there is in life. Now, there is one I am very proud to declare to the whole world as the secret to the success of our very young chapter. Behind the success of every JCI chapter is the dedication and the ...

Playing the part of the Head Trainer Vol. 1, No. 4 * 02 March 2009 By JCI Sen. MENNEN M. ARACID, ITF Trainer and Developmental Consultant I love public speaking. This is my profession: to stand before a crowd, transfer learning, and provide a good learning environment for learners. I get very little opportunities to do those 3 things now after I hit the rank of International Training Fellow. Yes, I get invited to conduct workshops that are non JCI official courses. But that pales in comparison with the number of JCI official courses I have run as Head Trainer over the last si...

What brings joy in one's LOM Vol. I, No. 03* 25 February 2009 By JCI Mem. JOLEX YU LIM, CLT2008 President What brings joy in one’s experiences -- even journey -- in JCI through one’s LOM? For newbies, you might be wondering what a LOM is. LOM is our colloquial acronym for Local Organization Movement. We’ve been used to referring to our JCI chapter as LOM in our internal lingo but the international organization recently encouraged us to refer to a chapter as “local JCI organization.” The growth and development of JCI members emanates in their LOM. If an individual fi...

After induction, what? Has JCI lost its relevance? Vol. I, No. 09 * 21 February 2009 By JCI A / Mem. CERWIN T. EVIOTA, CNT, NG2006 Charter PresidentHELLO Everyone! It was just shortly after Christmas when we last wrote a blog. We were moving more in the “back-end.” I.T. geeks would know what that means, eh? Anyway, we're in the season of inductions, and this will run until at least the end of next month. We had ours in JCI Cebu-Mactan Channel last Jan. 29, and tonight will be the turn of JCI Cebu, my former chapter that we served as VP in 2001 and EVP in 2002. Only JCI chapters i...

Making the Case for JCI Training The Great Value of pursuing a training career Vol. I, No. 04* 13 February 2009 By JCI Sen. REGINALD T. YU, ITF Trainer, Inspirational Speaker and Author, Communicator “Training.” The word has been used almost ad nauseam as a campaign slogan by those running for JCI national office since the late ‘90’s. Still others use it as a token vehicle to further their political ambitions within the JCI ladder. Yet, amidst these ballyhooed attempts to “promote” training, only an infinitesimal fraction of our national organization’s 5,000-plus-strong membership actually...

The North Star Vol. I, No. 02* 11 February 2009 By JCI Mem. JOLEX YU LIM, CLT 2008 President I just came from my immersion trip with m/v Doña Rita, the passenger and cargo ship of Gothong Southern that plies the Cebu-Cagayan-Cebu and Cagayan-Jagna-Cagayan routes. Was it business, or pleasure? Purely business. I have to work while on-board this beautiful ship, even if it meant missing the moment to ceremonially turnover the leadership of JCI Cebu-Mactan Channel to JCI Mem. Emi Rose R. Parcon as 2009 President. The order of the day was to meet and greet the officers and crew of th...

Never back down ... ... in defending what you believe in Vol. 1, No. 9 * February 3, 2009 By JCI Mem. ANGELO DANIEL R. PARCON 2007 President You may be flexible on strategy, but must remain consistent on principle! From what I heard from the grapevine the past few months, it is not a secret that our chapter can be considered one of the more controversial, er, or should we say, a news maker to a certain degree, within our JCI circle. These issues involve our charter members, our roles in regional and area gatherings, accidental “discoveries” and our rabid methods to pursue what is ri...
