The ECCP has provided us with relevant actionable information that made a huge difference in our ability to effectively continue serving our clients here in Northern Mindanao and Mindanao. The pandemic has brought to the fore a unique set of problems and concerns that severely hampered many corporate entities in Mindanao and Region 10. The timely information provided by the ECCP and its members on the many and different aspects of the pandemic has further enabled our law firm to assist our corporate and business clients navigate, respond to, and face, this public health emergency.

I was pleasantly surprised by the speed and effectiveness of the ECCP to adapt and turn the difficulties of the pandemic into an opportunity. The variety of subjects and quality of presenters that came to share their experience in multiple webinars were a source of valuable information and guidance; the subjects and speakers consistently exceeded my expectations that I made a point to attend as many webinars as my schedule allowed. ECCP’s wide reach and professional offerings makes it a valuable partner to any Filipino business in these challenging times we live in.

Never before has our Firm’s membership in the ECCP become more significant than during the COVID 19 pandemic. The ECCP has given information on how businesses navigate through ordeals and resolve issues in this crisis. It has shown through its activities that there is a common key to surviving and thriving in this pandemic - to adapt, evolve, and embrace the challenges. As we transition in a changing and uncertain time, we will be implementing innovative and strategic measures we have learned from the ECCP to ensure that we survive and thrive in our legal practice in this time of disruption.

Sheila Lobien

ECCP Women in Business Committee Chair / Chief Executive Officer, Lobien Realty Group

It has been a productive, impactful and fun ride with ECCP the past 12 years. It was very challenging but productive to chair the ECCP Women in Business Committee. We made a mark by highlighting that women in business are more than ready to continue demanding more seats, space and voice at the table. The founding of Lobien Realty Group is my best personal example. The impact is noticeable by the growing number of participants in this Committee. ECCP and the WBC have become an avenue for women members to learn from each other, seek mentors and friends, network with other women business leaders.
