From Spenders to InvestorsBy Randell Tiongson on May 7th, 2014
iCon was a long dream of mine because I yearned for the time where more and more Filipinos will be interested in investing for their future. I longed for the day to see long lines of people queuing to enter a financially themed event, the way they do for a block-buster movie. In 2013, the first iCon proved that Filipinos are more receptive to learning finance and investments as 1,000 people flocked to the very first iCon. I was overwhelmed with the site of 1,000 people all eager to take better control of their financial future.
This year, despite the difficulty of mounting an even bigger event, we felt that the Filipinos need an iCon again so we put together even more speakers and an even longer conference time for those attending iCon2014. Our roster of speakers are impressive as they are indeed the subject matter experts of their own fields. However, it is not just the competence of the speakers that made them part of iCon2014 — it is their passion to help Filipino achieve their dreams!
