Start What? - Or Do You Want to be a "Call Boy"?

6,349 views

Published on

A brief presentation I gave @ Cebu TechTalk Meetup. Highlighting the things that Cebu is good at, my experience in Startups (Non-Profit), and some of the cultural challenges that Startups and Founders face here in the Philippines. Presentation is sprinkled with a bit of humor (slightly irreverent) in regards to Greener Pastures not always being what we expected, and a term used by a Call Center Executive referring to his male Call Center Agents as "Call Boys".
