The students are part of the AmCham Business Leadership Program (BLP) which provides Filipino students with high levels of access and interaction with executives of top companies in the Philippines.

BLP enhances the students’ understanding of the role of business in national development and provides a broader perspective on key global business and economic issues.

AmCham exclusively invites top university students to participate in the BLP and to familiarize them with the contributions of American multinational companies to the country.Chevron, one of the “Best Companies to Work for”  awarded at the recently held HR Asia Awards 2023, has been a steadfast supporter and sponsor of BLP for the past 20 years.

Ethan Flowers, general manager of CHI, imparted insights on his journey at Chevron and strategies for effective team management. He was followed by Billy Liu, general manager of CPI, with a discussion on achieving work-life balance.

“Intellectual curiosity, problem-solving, and analytical skills serve really well in your career, if you end up working in big companies like Chevron or other multinational companies. This will help you contribute to the team,” Ethan Flowers, general manager of Chevron Holdings Inc. shared.

“We must know our priorities and we should be taking good care of our health because how can we deliver good outputs if we are not feeling well? We should always learn to have a work-life balance,” said Billy Liu, general manager of Chevron Philippines Inc.

Also, BLP alumni Tonie Miclat and Eds Bernardo shared how the BLP helped them in their journey towards getting hired at Chevron and how it strengthened their career growth. The talk inspires and motivates the students of BLP, encouraging them to persevere in pursuing their career goals.

“We are delighted with this activity, where our students have the opportunity to engage with Chevron executives, gaining valuable insights that will inspire and motivate them in their journey toward building a career. We are truly grateful to Chevron for being our partner over the years and for inviting us to participate in this event exclusively for our students,” said Pinky Jamili, business leadership program project manager, AmCham Philippines.
