Our Human Capital (HC) team recently hosted a mixer that brought together PwC's UP alumni and UP Diliman's graduating BS Business Administration & Accountancy students.
The mixer happened last 7 March 2016 at 47 East — a part of the growing wave of coworking spaces in the country — located at Katipunan, Quezon City.
HC Director Pam Gregorio welcomed the 74 graduating students and the the Cesar E. A. Virata School of Business' (VSB) department chairperson and five professors. She started the networking party with a round of introductions.
The mixer followed a "speed dating" format. Each PwC representative was assigned a table. Students were split into eight small groups. With ten minutes per table, each student group conversed with the assigned PwC representative. Groups moved from table to table, and eventually all were able to talk to the PwC partners, managers and staff present in the event.
Aside from Pam, our firm's UP alumni at the mixer were Assurance Partner JM Reyes, Consulting Leader Benj Azada, Tax Director Jaffy Azarraga, Independence & Ethics Director Grace Aries, HC Manager Geri Gaffud, Deals Senior Associate Andrea Panganiban, and Assurance associates Nikki Turano, Dan Rasgo, Alyanna Pepino and Jose Emmanuel Ho. The rest of the HC team on site were HC Officer Giane Aquino, and HC associates Justin Asinas, Art Buena, Grace Inosanto, Bennika Kho, and Cheska Vicedo.
