After spearheading the inter-division runs of the NCR Quiz B 2010 - a national brain competition among the best and the brightest high school students in the different divisions of the National Capital Region - TalkShop is now gearing up for the championship slated on March 12 at the University of Makati. NCR Quiz B 2010 is a joint project of Rotary Club of Makati Poblacion, Bigay-Pagmamahal Scholar’s Organization (BPSO), the Department of Youth and Sports Development under the stewardship of Councilor Jejomar Erwin Binay STI , and TALKSHOP. As the project is about to culminate, Sheila Viesca, TalkShop School Director, in her effort to broaden the opportunities for the city scholars who have contributed time and energy to ensure the success of the NCR-wide program, is now conducting a training program at her school . She has extended her expertise in communication and personality training to 160 scholars who belong to the Bigay Pagmamahal Scholars Organization, a group of the brightest Makati students who are assisted by Mayor Jejomar Binay in their schooling costs.
The training program started in February. Scholars who are made up of outstanding students, mostly of magna cum laudes and cum laudes now into college are exposed to mentoring in Technical Writing, Public Speaking, Grammer Mastery, Conversation Expertise, Personality Development and Etiquette Training using Talkshop’s holistic approach of Integrated Language Teaching (ILT). Viesca explains that the integrated teaching style focuses on the merging of substance and presentation, logic and creativity, leadership and integrity, and eloquence and vision. She designed this intensive-comprehensive communication module to create better and bigger opportunities for the scholars. Ms. Viesca added, “TalkShop will serve as a good training ground to help the youth further become well-rounded individuals, morally outstanding leaders, and highly competent mentors in whatever careers they choose.”
