It was a privilege to be invited to speak at the this year’s Digital Influencers Marketing Summit hosted by Janette Toral of Digital Filipino.
I met a lot of great people in the event and I invited many of them to come to the show to share their awesomeness. (Stay tuned for that.)
While she was doing her speech, I knew her voice sounded very familiar. So I asked Janice’s friend, Aimee, who was sitting beside me during the event. I asked if Janice was related to Jaymie Pizarro, a past guest of the show, because they sounded very much the same way. And it turns out…I was right.
Janice and Jaymie are actually sisters. Kaya pala magka-boses sila!
Now, it will be easier for me to strike a conversation and invite her on the show.
So at the long buffet line during lunch, I approached her. She was very friendly and we talked about many things, including topics such as our own businesses and blogs, and didn’t notice the time. Before I realized it, we were already in front of the buffet table, about to get our food. From then on, I knew that she will be a perfect guest for the show.
