OUR STORY OF SUCCESS
Let us create that spark in the lives of Filipinos to encourage and inspire others to do better in life.
This is what drove me to push hard and free myself and my family from that lowly situation we are in years ago.
Back when I was growing up, we practically had nothing except ourselves with my siblings and parents, relying on one another for support.
When we started a family of our own with my wife Yelcy, the most challenging task is to be able to provide food on the table and medicine for our children.
I cannot stand it as it is so heartwrenching seeing many children go hungry, the table empty with nothing, no food to eat.
The hardships and difficulty I have gone through in life taught me the need to persevere and strive. This is what triggered me to embark on a small business which by leaps and bounds is now one of the country’s largest marketing media company.
We even took recognition abroad when Brigada was chosen as one of Asia’s Leading SMEs in 2019 during the prestigious Asia Corporate Excellence & Sustainability Awards (ACES) held in Bangkok, Thailand. The award was the first ever to be won by a Philippine company in that category.
Now, we are in a much better position to help spark that spirit of heroism and compassion in the hearts of many Filipinos to enable them to make their own move and inspire others to change their lives for the better.
We serve for a purpose and that is to inspire while playing the role of a purveyor of truthful and reliable news and information and entertaining programs, maintaining journalistic independence with our unique business model of a self-sustaining Group of Companies that rely on one another.
We are committed on this as we know our game, building our confidence to pursue our mission and vision. To be that spark of light that brings life changing opportunities among Filipinos.
Standout Brigada! Excellent Brigada!
Thank you and God bless.
