The mini symposium and competition on July 19 was given a different twist from the question- and-answer format of previous years. This time around, the camp included participants from nine other countries, which made the competition more intense. “This was not my first time to represent the company in this camp, but this year not only were there more competitors, there was more effort given by the trainers,” said Raffy. “What made it different was the extra effort we all put in to make sure that our message would be easily and effectively delivered to those who would watch our video.”

“ Before the competition started we were given guidelines to consider when creating our video, and what stuck with us was to ‘Keep it simple. Keep it local.’ This meant we needed to consider our audience, such as the use of language and terminologies that they are familiar with,” shared Arvin. The importance of knowing who your audience was underscored throughout the entire process. “You need to be able to simplify what you want to say. And how do you do that? By knowing your audience well.”

Raffy, who has been with Digits Trading Corp. for 12 years also shared how trainers can set themselves apart from the rest: “We [trainers] are similar regardless where we come from. What differentiates us is on how we facilitate, how we tackle the topic, and approach the audience so that they learn during each training session.” During the camp, Arvin albeit being relatively new in the company was also given the chance to talk about the company’s best practices.

This competition allowed the Training and Development team, headed by Bodjie Pamintuan to showcase the skills of its trainers, which reflects on the company’s sales team performance and their ability to effectively market to Filipino users.

Press Release: ALASKA KICKS-OFF BATANG ALASKA SCHOOL MILK PROGRAM

According to the 2015 Updating of the Nutritional Status of Filipinos developed by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Philippines (FNRI), 1 out of every 3 children in the Philippines aged 5 to 10 is suffering from stunted growth. Similarly, 1 out of every 3 children aged 5 to 10 years old is underweight.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines stunted growth as the “failure to reach one’s full potential for growth.” Poor nutrition is one of the many causes of this. This can also result to being underweight or when a child weighs less than the average for their age and height.

Stunted growth as well as being underweight are problems that should not be ignored. If not addressed early, stunted growth may lead to lost productivity and opportunities, and to nutrition-related diseases later in life.

Fully aware of these facts, Alaska Milk Corporation, who is dedicated to providing proper and affordable nutrition to Filipinos for over four decades, will hold a series of events with activities to promote the importance of proper nutrition all throughout a child’s development years in order to reach the right height and weight for their age.

Taking the lead in this campaign is Alaska’s new Alaska Fortified Powdered Milk Drink which is loaded with Vitamin D, it’s also high in calcium and iron and a good source of protein. Milk has always been essential for growing children to have enough and consistent nutrient intake to ensure maximum growth potential. That is why Alaska Fortified Powdered Milk Drink, combined with proper nutrition and an active lifestyle, will help children reach the “tamang tangkad at bigat” (right height and weight) for their age.
