AUGUST

ARELLE, CHRISLENE, CJ, LAI

Four among many of our collegians turned Ni2 Guilders, from different universities, different courses, different year levels - all voiced the same burning question in our latest Agile Hour: how can I find success in my career, but at the same time fulfill the impact I so deeply care about? Like many of our Guilders, they are aspiring innovators and change-makers, each with their own advocacies. With the help of our Ni2 community gatherings (Agile Hours) and the Ni2 Guild app, they are molding themselves into superhero professionals ready to take on the world of work and whatever the future brings.

ANALISA & WOMENSPHERE

One of our strongest supporters and a recent addition to our Ni2 Global Advisory Board, Analisa has destroyed every box that has tried to contain her mission to prove that women can make it anywhere. From Leyte, to public school in Makati, onto full scholarships in Philipine Science High School, Mt Holyoke and Harvard Business School, onto the fast-track in Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, NASA and the UN, Analisa now has her sights on a homecoming - to bring her global organization Womensphere to re-shape the future of women in the Philippines. With Womensphere's focus on economic empowerment and innovation, we share many intersections with Analisa and look forward to groundbreaking collaborations between Ni2 and Womensphere.

ELAINE

Social media strategist turned life coach, who helps career professionals in fields as diverse as social media consulting (of course), financial planning and entrepreneurship. Business is booming for Elaine especially in the panedmic, but recently she took a 2-month break to re-focus how she positions her diverse offerings. Of her Ni2 experience: "Even if I know what I'm doing, iba pa din yun may guide that helps me in the right direction", referring to our unique mix of the Ni2 app (Launchpad) as a DIY guide plus a real person helping you live (The Agile Hour).

KIM & CO.

A 2017 Industrial Design graduate of Benilde, Kim travelled the world and flourished in PAL as a flight attendant - until COVID struck and took her on a life-changing detour into Ni2! As the pandemic hit and she was retrenched along with 2,000 other PALers, Kim joined Ni2's 100-Day Career Accelerator in Feb 2021. Within Week 1, she assembled a 4-person team with old friends Ally, Clark and Tita Joana! Christened as Team Bridges, their crash course on innovation saw them launch a series of bridge programs to help retrenched professionals, especially in the travel industry. Launching innovations in 30 to 60-day cycles, Kim also found her bearings and with renewed confidence, has decided to launch her own startup - a long-postponed dream shared with her BFF to offer millennials environmentally-sustainable skin care products! Kim recently shared her startup journey in The Agile Hour.

AUDREY

The Guild by Ni2's new Managing Director just joined us from a young, but distinguished career. A Magna cum Laude Communications Technology grad of Ateneo, Audz was at one point all these: a faculty member of ADMU's John Gokongwei School of Management; a market research analyst; an MA candidate for Organizational Psychology; a co-founder of Ignite Founders Ventures; a beauty pageant contestant; and a political candidate for Provincial Board member of the 7th District of Cavite. She joins The Guild with big plans to reinvent how college students transition into the world of work!

JOJO & CO

CEO of Concepcion Industrial Corp, a 60-year-old public company whose products are in millions of Filipino homes, leads the launch of Concepcion Peak Performance, an Ni2-powered 3-in-1 accelerator. First of all, CPP builds on the Live @ Ni2 platform to run its Market Accelerator for the Future of Home Experiences. CPP also uses Ni2's open collaboration platform in order to run its Workforce & Career Accelerator for its highest potential employees and Partner Accelerator for preferred dealers, distributors, and other partners and SMEs.

MIGUEL

Stanford D-School and IDEO come to 200+ colleges and LGUs in the Philippines. That's the pedigree Migs brings in the field of Human-Centered Design Thinking and Agile Innovation. Add to that Migs' many years as a favored consultant of many of the country's biggest and most innovative corporations, plus his own family startups like Aranaz and Felipe & Sons, and you'd have to be as excited as we are that Migs will be co-piloting many of our Ni2 Daily Flights, where we do live on-air mentoring of our community of practice, many of whom will be joining us from corporations, SMEs, schools and LGUs across our 7,100 islands!

GERALD

2019 FEU graduate was all set to fulfill his lifelong dream to be an auditor - until Ni2 set him on a different track to 3 promotions and 3x earnings in just his first 24 months on the job! How did Ge burst out his box - from accounting, to the wide-open field of innovation and a whole new world of possibilities? Ge credits his growth and transformation to the constant practice, practice, practice of innovation disciplines that he was immersed in, right from Day 1 of his Ni2 experience. The favorite Ni2 disciplines of this ex-accountant? Divergent-to-convergent thinking and agile problem-solving.

JOANA

20-year veteran of global travel industry fears no boundaries, dares to continuously expand her horizons with Ni2. Today she has reinvented her career in the field of innovation - an unlikely destination if you'd asked her 2 years ago. Most recently Joana is teaming up with college Guilders Josh (FEU), Jolina and Glaiza (University of Makati) to launch Peak Experiences catering to millennials who are starting their careers and need to be mindful of mental health and overall wellness.

KAHLIL, CHINO, MARK

Three long-time friends and old high school classmates reunite in Ni2 and find jobs together while co-founding their own startup to help young people like them go from zero to career hero. And they did it all in just 6 months! How to go from C-average students who had nothing on their resumes and were struggling to find jobs in the pandemic, to being visionary leaders helping thousands of college students? They credit Ni2's Launchpad app, especially Hurdles 1-5, with helping them map their Zone of Opportunity. These dudes are locked in doing what they were born to do.

ENZO & OJ

How to build a super resume and get a 4-year headstart - even as a college freshman! Just ask these guys. Enzo is still a freshman in Enderun and isn't shy about how he's built up his work experience even in just 5 months of Ni2. Same for OJ, a junior in Ateneo who's only been in Ni2 4 months. None of their OJT was about fetching coffee or running errands. Enzo and OJ's hi-impact on-the-job experience includes marketing, business development and product development - plus they're part of the founding team to launch an innovation to help college kids just like them.

            IGNITE MANIFESTO

            At Ignite, we know these to be true:

            Genius

            First, that I am gifted with my own Genius –
            unique, unrepeated and unrepeatable
            for all time.

            Purpose

            Second, that my singular Genius bears
            the thumbprint of Who I Am and Why I am Here.

            Genius points to Purpose, Purpose to Genius.

            Service

            Third, that I can only give out
            of what I have been given.
            And what I have been given,
            I must give and live for others.

            Genius finds its fullness in Service –
            a Purpose bigger than self.

            Mission

            Fourth, that if I am honest and brave,
            my Genius and Purpose will find
            their manifest call in a shared Mission –
            with others, for others.

            A Mission rooted in finding
            that particular slice of humanity
            whose particular pains
            I am particularly gifted
            (and compelled!) to heal.

            Collaboration

            Fifth, that shared Mission
            leads naturally to Collaboration.

            Shared Mission demands
            Shared Genius: mine, yours, ours.

            Innovation

            If we are a collection of our own Genius –
            each unique, unrepeated, unrepeatable –
            where then can we go, but to Innovation.

            Impact

            We Ignite, therefore, not just for self,
            but for each other.

            Because what we are born to do,
            we are born to do with others
            and for others.

            We need each other’s Genius.
            And far beyond Genius,
            we need each other to be on this journey,
            to fulfill this necessary progression:
            from a sense of our own individual
            Genius, Purpose, and Service (GPS)
            toward shared Mission and Collaboration,
            and ultimately, to Innovation and Impact.

            Transcendence

            This is the path of transcendence.

            This is how we lift each other
            to heights we never in our wildest dreams,
            or loftiest ambitions, dared.

            Remember, there is an Operating System (O/S) that ignites the Winnovator in every one of us!

            sh1

            If you want to ignite the Winnovator in you, your team or entire company, this is the O/S formula:

            PB x F x WF

            It’s our mission to show you how and support you every step of the way.

            CONNECTING FLIGHTS

            Sure, we can each do this by ourselves – but we’d lose out on what makes all of it special: we are 100x infinitely stronger together than on our own.

            connecting flights

            That’s why we architected Ni2 to be an All-In-One Accelerator:

            s2

            Who else will we meet…
            How will our superpowers connect…
            What wicked problems will we fight as one…
            How will we push each other to newer heights…
            What impossibilities will we conquer…

            s1
            s1

            Remember the O/S that ignites the Winnovator in you?

            You can’t win on your own – not as an individual, not as a team, not as a company.

            whose particular pains
            I am particularly gifted
            (and compelled!) to heal.

            Fifth, that shared Mission
            leads naturally to Collaboration.

             

            Shared Mission demands
            Shared Genius: mine, yours, ours.

            innovation-768x147

            If we are a collection of our own Genius –
            each unique, unrepeated, unrepeatable –
            where then can we go, but to Innovation.

            impact

            We Ignite, therefore, not just for self,

            but for each other.

             

            Because what we are born to do,

            we are born to do with others

            and for others.

             

            We need each other’s Genius.

            And far beyond Genius,

            we need each other to be on this journey,

            to fulfill this necessary progression:

            from a sense of our own individual

            Genius, Purpose, and Service (GPS)

            toward shared Mission and Collaboration,

            and ultimately, to Innovation and Impact.

            transcendence-768x103

            This is the path of transcendence.

             

            This is how we lift each other
            to heights we never in our wildest dreams,
            or loftiest ambitions, dared.

            WHAT ARE YOU LAUNCHING?

            🔲  I’m working on something

            🔲  I have a strong idea

            🔲  I need to validate my idea

            🔲  I need an idea

            ✋ I’m happy to share what I’m working on as a live case study.

            RULES OF THE ROAD:

            1. RESPECT. Each and every one of us pays utmost respect to the ideas and sharings of our peers. I pay utmost respect to others as I expect others to pay utmost respect to me. That said, I exercise my own good judgment in what I choose to share – because anything I share becomes open to the public.
            2. SHARE. Ideas do not make winnovations. Execution makes winnovations – specifically agile execution accelerated by applied learning and collaboration.

              ROUTE: OUT OF YOUR BOX

              THAT'S RIGHT, THERE'S A WINNO IN YOU!

              Winnovators have the unique ability to launch winning innovations and keep doing it again and again, in any challenge or opportunity – in a world so full of wicked problems!

               

              Winnovators are superheroes – the creative problem solvers of business and society.

              sh2

              As a result, Winnovators create the biggest opportunities for success and impact – for next level breakthroughs – for their career, company, and community!

              Here are 4 hallmarks of Winnovators (people who create winning innovations):

              • Winnovators create big wins for customers.
              • Winnovators create big wins for employees and partners.
              • Winnovators create big wins for company revenue and profits.
              • Winnovators create big wins that are sustainable at scale.

              Most important, there is an Operating System (O/S) that ignites the Winnovator in every one of us!

              sh1

              If you want to ignite the Winnovator in you, your team or entire company, this is the O/S formula:

              PB x F x WF

              It’s our mission to show you how and support you every step of the way.


                Thank you for your interest.
