On November 15, 2015, Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales inspired and motivated over 3,000 marketing students in PJMA’s Juan Big Idea – North Luzon Edition, held at the University of Baguio Gymnasium. With the theme “A Voyage Towards Marketing Eminence,” the event featured 3 distinguished speakers who shared their knowledge and expertise on the topic of personal branding.
The VoiceMaster energized the afternoon as he took the stage to do his talk entitled “Personal Branding: Social Media Management.” As with every talk, his energetic and dynamic presence on stage easily captivated the audience, coupled with his “sample” of an army of character voices. But of course, he also shared his knowledge and expertise in line with the event’s theme. As a personal branding expert, Pocholo shared how he has established himself as an authority in the field of voice – not only in voice acting, but also in broadcasting and motivational speaking. He shared tips on how anyone can brand themselves, their business and their advocacy simply by having an online presence especially in social media. Furthermore, he also shared his knowledge about reputation management, as it is important not only to be easily found online, but to also make sure that what they find is remarkable.
Aside from being entertaining and insightful, the VoiceMaster’s talk was also inspiring, as he spoke a lot about bringing out the greatness inside each person. He talked about having dreams and visions that not only develop one’s self, but also to improve the community and the nation. His final challenge to the young marketers, “Do not waste the opportunity to be an inspiration to other people.”
