PLDT Enterprise relaunched the MVP Bossing Awards in search for the next batch of MVP Bossings.

PLDT Enterprise relaunched the MVP Bossing Awards in search for the next batch of MVP Bossings.

As in years past, the MVP Bossing Awards will pay tribute to the Filipino entrepreneurial spirit, celebrating local business owners who have achieved success, with the aim of inspiring others to pursue their dreams and aspirations. Now on its 8th year, the MVP Bossing Awards has recognized over 80 iconic business leaders.

“Over the years, the MVP Bossing Awards has brought to light the inspiring stories of visionaries in entrepreneurship, motivating Filipinos to make their dreams a reality and make it big in business. These stories of trials and successes are a testament to the endless possibilities local entrepreneurs can achieve if they continue to be fearless in pursuing their ideas, no matter how impossible they think it is. This year’s Bossing Awards is even more special as we not only celebrate PLDT’s 90th Anniversary, but also the 10th year of PLDT SME Nation,” said Jovy Hernandez, SVP and head of PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups.

According to Go Negosyo’s founding trustee and 2010 Bossing Awardee Joey Concepcion, it is relevant for budding entrepreneurs to be digitally enabled, promoting innovation and development in the country.

“The future of the Philippines is highly dependent on how our local entrepreneurs challenge the current business landscape. We have never been prouder of enabling enterprises to succeed, because their successes are a step forward into accelerating the Philippines’ economic progression and stability,” said PLDT Inc.’s Chairman & CEO Manuel V. Pangilinan

Over the coming months, a panel of judges will be shortlisting MVP Bossing nominees, narrowing them down to the Top 30 in September. The Awards will retain the major elements of its previous format, in which one Grand Bossing will be selected from a roster of ten to twelve MVP Bossing Awardees. This year, however, two special awards will also be given to an LGU for Excellence in Local Government and to a corporation for Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility. The search will be culminated with the MVP Bossing Awards Night on October 25.

Nominations for the MVP Bossing Awards 2018 are now open via www.pldtenterprise.com/mvpbossingawards2018.  Deadline for submission of nominations is on August 31.
