Biz icon touches base with EV Youth Leaders
It was a rare treat for the young student leaders of Region 8 to interact with one of the nation’s highly respected and regaled business icons.
The Guest of Honor: Mr. Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala – Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ayala Corporation.
The occasion: Opening Ceremonies of the 6th Eastern Visayas Student Council Leadership Conference last September 01, 2011 at the Leyte Normal University Gymnasium, Tacloban City, Philippines.
A sampler banter during the ensuing Open Forum after Ayala’s keynote address:
STUDENT LEADER: Sir, how would you describe yourself – are you highly intelligent than most people or just plain smart?
AYALA: Hahaha! I certainly would like to think I am not stupid!
[Audience: More laughter]
