Welcome to the 13th Filipina Leadership Global Summit and to beautiful Cebu, Philippines!

The Filipina Leadership Global Summit is exclusively designed for the Global FWN100™ Awardees—Filipina women leaders creating change in the world of Filipinas in diaspora.

Each year, the Filipina Women’s Network explores these questions when designing the Filipina Summit’s intensive learning experience. The summit brings together Filipina women leaders from a variety of industries and countries to think collaboratively about the future of our respective communities, work, and leadership. The sessions, action group discussions, and personal reflections, are designed to help you gain insights about the future of leadership as a Filipina woman.

Learning Journey #1: Customers of the Future

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learning Journey: Customers of the Future  

The Learning Journey Sites: 
Kor Landa
Kenneth Cobonpue
Lapu Lapu Shrine

We will visit companies and focus on changing customers' needs in the B2C and B2B industries of various products and services servicing a global clientele. Industries we're exploring are fashion accessories, furniture manufacturing, food and food additive manufacturing and technology.

Then we gather at the next morning to recap learnings with each group reporting back their observations.

"A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world."
--John LeCarre

More than a field trip or a fact-finding mission, Learning Journeys immerse us in the reality--and long-range implications--of the knowledge economy. These experiences enable us to deepen, accelerate, and internalize our own learning about profound changes in the business environment and, at the same time, share experiences and perspectives with fellow FWN members from different companies, industries, and countries. Learning Journeys reflect our conviction that the most powerful learning occurs through experience and interaction, not from books or speeches.

The Learning Journeys developed for the Customers of the Future meeting offer a rich array of experiences, company visits, and conversations emblematic of changing customer relationships and the new (or transformed) business models emerging in response.

FWN members will board a bus and set out on foot to investigate Customers of the Future.

We will explore the question -
Has the customer changed, or is it our understanding of the customer that has changed? -- Chris Riley, Wieden & Kennedy

We'll have a first-hand look at the customers, producers, and purveyors of the future which will set the stage for subsequent conversations designed to deepen our understanding of the causes, manifestations, and implications of changing customer relationships. Among the topics we will discuss in small groups: the future of brands, value webs, global youth, the particularity of desire, the digital divide, and why companies still don’t get it!

Who will be the “customers of the future?” What will they want? And how will businesses construct relationships with them that are satisfying, meaningful, and ultimately profitable? 

Attendees will be divided into groups. Each group will explore one of the following discussion topics during the Learning Journey and report their findings at the end of the day, when we gather the next morning:
  1. Changing customer relationships - Christine Amour- Levar
  2. New realities and most compelling hypotheses about the customer of the future - Jopin Romero
  3. Most compelling changes and corporate tools for capitalizing on opportunities - Nora Terrado
  4. Key insights about emergent changes, their significance, and the implications for  companies. - Paulette Deduque Liu

We will creat a Learning Wall & Individual Reflections
The Learning Wall will showcase photos, quotes, and other artifacts gathered during the day’s learning journeys. Participants will share their personal observations.
