The first of the five installments of FinTalks x SLSU was held last March 2, 2016 at SLSU CAM Auditorium. Current College of Business Administration Student Council Governor Ms. Lineth Cruzat served as the motivational speaker. Cruzat in her speech reiterated the importance of believing in oneself. She added, “…naniniwala ako na yung iba sa atin ay nahihiya lang. Yun yung gusto ko na mapag-aralan natin na wag ka matakot mag voice out, wag ka matakot mag share na yung sa palagay mo dapat mong i-share kasi walang mawawala. Makakatulong ka pa…”

Another speaker is Mr. Carlo Magno Sabater who discussed the brief history and the benefits brought by the credit and collection in our economy. He also inspired the attendees to take the risks because the power of change can be found within us.

One of the speakers is Ms. Joy Anne Pasumbal, who in her early age of 20 was already an entrepreneur and a trader. She discussed the different personal and financial challenges students are facing nowadays and provided tips on how we can overcome those challenges.

Another speaker is Mr. Cesar Augusto Villanueva, who works in the Inclusive Finance Advocacy Office of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.
