Not every person is cut out to organize and plan for events. With proper training, tools, and practical insights, one can learn how to organize an event effectively. This is what PR firm BrandSpeakAsia believes as they organized the second installment of a workshop for students, #CoffeeTalk: Creativity At Work, held recently at Commune Cafe, Makati City.
#CoffeeTalk is a social initiative pioneered by BrandSpeakAsia, a Makati based PR Firm which specializes in media relations, events, digital PR and design. The workshop is designed to teach student principles about PR, events and design outside the classroom. The company believes that in a creative industry such as PR, students and the youth, in general, will play a big role in the future, not to mention the role they are already playing as they shape and impact the world of social media.
The recent #CoffeeTalk was attended by student representatives from UP Manila, Dela Salle University, Ateneo De Manila University, Enderun Colleges, Raffles Design Institute Manila, Mapua Institute of Technology, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, Lyceum University, Philippine Christian University among others. This workshop was also solely promoted through Social Media as BrandSpeakAsia proves how effective, engaging, and impactful this communications channel is for the youth.
#CoffeeTalk will also have an invasion series this year which will bring this workshop to select university grounds. The first invasion happened last February at UP Manila and will happen again in June. The next rounds of #CoffeeTalk: Creativity at Work is slated to happen this August and October 2014.
The success of this workshop is shared by the unique partners in each niche such as Commune Café’s specialty cafe that offers Latte Art to customers; Strawberry Swoon, an online reseller of dainty accessories, and, TresMariasCupcakes, a group of young bakers aged 13, 12 and 3.
