PLDT Enterprise, the business arm of the country’s leading telecommunications and digital services provider, celebrated a milestone victory at the 15th IABC Philippine Quill Awards, taking home six awards from the annual ceremony held at the Marriott Grand Ballroom, Pasay City.
Through PLDT SME Nation, its micro, small, and medium enterprise (MSME) group and PLDT ALPHA, its corporate business group, PLDT Enterprise was acknowledged for its excellence in the categories of Community Relations, Special Events, Publications, and Marketing, Advertising, and Brand Communications.
PLDT SME Nation was first recognized for the #BeTheBoss 2016 Awards, a celebration of young Filipino entrepreneurs leading in tech innovation and digital integration. Following this, their second honor was given in recognition of BIG Talks, a conference series that provides budding entrepreneurs across the Philippines access to the knowledge and expertise of established business leaders. Finally, for Tech Island 3.0, the third installment of SME Nation’s largest business convention that aims to educate MSMEs on leveraging business opportunities and facing challenges in the digital age.
PLDT ALPHA also celebrated their victories, taking home three Excellence Awards for their efforts. First on the night was its already multi-awarded business lifestyle publication, Hot Joe, adding yet another laurel to its collection. The magazine, which is produced entirely by PLDT ALPHA and features its latest partnerships and products, insights from top business and industry leaders and celebrated events, is on its third consecutive year as a Quill Excellence Awardee.
PLDT ALPHA was likewise awarded for two outstanding events—the 2016 Pasasalamat Night, an annual end-of-the-year celebration where valued clients and partners are treated to a night of grand, exclusive entertainment, and the 2016 Philippine ICT Leadership Convention: Digital Now! which brought together global industry leaders, prominent business figures, and technology experts for an immersive two-day convention that highlighted the disruptive technologies reshaping the strategies of business and enterprises.
With its six awards, PLDT Enterprise joins the 35 awards in total received by the entire PLDT Group at the 15th Philippine Quill Awards.
“We are proud of the Enterprise Group’s year in business communications initiatives,” said PLDT SVP and Head of Enterprise Groups Jovy Hernandez. “More than anything, these different campaigns, publications and events not only underline our desire to help our valued clients achieve fearlessness in their pursuit of growth and success, but they also embody our relentless commitment to delivering excellence to our customers.”
