BlogEx Manila 2016 was held on September 24, 2016 at the SMX Convention Center in Taguig City. It is the first expo that combines a trade show and conference for bloggers, social media enthusiasts, business owners, digital influencers, and new media experts.
The conference part of BlogEx Manila 2016 featured speakers who are experts in various fields such as e-commerce, tourism, education, entertainment and even food. Speakers were given 15 minutes each to share their knowledge and expertise in their respective industries, followed by a moderated panel discussion to answer questions from the audience.
Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales was one of the speakers in the afternoon session, where he talked about the importance of the voice and the industry of voice acting. He started by introducing his work and his company, Creativoices Productions, and how he has revolutionized the field of voice acting by opening the country’s first-ever voice acting school – the Philippine Center for Voice Acting. Pocholo also told the story of how he discovered his voice acting talent at the young age of 7, when he started imitating the voices in his favorite radio drama, “Gabi ng Lagim,” growing up in their humble home in Mariveles, Bataan.
In his short speech, Pocholo did not fail to amaze the audience with his voice acting talents, as he imitated voices of famous personalities and cartoon characters. Aside from being entertained, the audience were also inspired as Pocholo emphasized the importance of pursuing a career and building a business out of passion, and the passion to serve. This led Pocholo’s talk to conclude with the promotion of his latest book, “Gusto Kong Maging Voice Talent,” the first-ever voice acting book in the Philippines, which he has written to share his 20 years of knowledge and experience in voice acting to more aspiring voice artists all over the country.
