Day 1 Speakers

Atty. Teofilo S. Pilando, Jr.


“Globalization” is true even in the negative sense that crowned virus can wreck world-wide havoc, and thus GLOCAL Professionals must face the challenges – a necessary “Localization”? All of a sudden, we see the rise of a myriad ways this pandemic is disrupting industries – “Work From Home” or Remote Work, more Digital Learning for Basic and Higher Education where access and marginalization inevitably raises issues; more e-commerce and online selling where taxation issues become an afterthought; contactless meetings, payments, banking and what not.

Message and Keynote Speech


October 23. 9:40 am

When the global pandemic struck and the countries’ COVID-19 response became an unprecedented historic unison of community quarantine and lockdowns for months, companies and businesses were forced to close, downsize, declare bankruptcy, and for those that survived, shift to remote work. The historic health crisis necessarily and legislatively mandated everyone at all levels of society into hand hygiene, healthcare face mask protection, and social distancing.

Rolando G. Tungpalan (Ret.)

He represented NEDA in the governing board of various government entities including the Home Guaranty Corporation, the National Housing Authority, Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board, the Philippine National Railways Corporation, the National Power Corporation, the Philippine Economic Zone Authority, the National Irrigation Administration, the Toll Regulatory Board, and the National Water Resources Board. He likewise represented NEDA in the Board of Regents of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines and the Technological University of the Philippines.

COVID-19 Pandemic: Impact on Health Profession Education


October 23. 1:00 pm

The COVID 19 pandemic has elicited responses from the national government and the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID). In order to prevent the spread of the virus, lockdown and various degrees of community quarantine and safety and health protocols were imposed. These measures interrupted and disrupted the usual structured academic activities of higher education institutions.

Abruptly, the landscape of health professions education changed from the traditional institution-based, structured, clinical rotation with actual patients to the “new normal” involving the use of technology-based platforms using online learning and with alternative teaching-learning activities, without exposure to actual patients.

The session will deal mainly on the impact of the changed landscape of health professions education on the following:

1. Transformation of students
2. Resources
3. Roles of faculty members
4. Quality of educational activities
5. The responsibilities of regulatory agencies (CHED, PRC and Professional Regulatory Boards)
6. Industry

The session will end with a short discussion on the Way Forward, dealing with immediate, medium term and long term plans.

The Inner Quest for Meaning: The Journey to the New World


October 23. 1:45 pm

The lockdown and quarantine caused by the pandemic is an opportunity to reflect and start a journey into the inner self. We have become so busy with outward activities that we hardly notice what is going on within us. This has led us sometimes to lose touch of who we are as professionals. This talk will take us into an inner journey into the true meaning of professionalism and the nobility of every profession. It will usher us into a new world that consists not in discovering new horizons but in developing “new eyes”.

I am proud that organizations like PAPRB are committed to ensuring that our professionals are equipped and empowered in our nation’s time of need. Your theme, “The Path Forward for Glocal Professionals: Rising to the Pandemic Challenge” is proof positive that there is a brighter future ahead, and there is no room for cynicism because we will, as a nation, overcome.

Leni Robredo
Vice President, Republic of the Philippines
As we take pride in the creativity, skills and global competitiveness of the Filipino professionals, I trust that this event will empower every member to share their proficiency and insights, help us keep at pace with our ASEAN neighbors, and bridge our communities towards more effective, productive and enduring partnerships.
