Training on

Stress Management and Accounting for Non-Accountants

May 3 - 6, 2016
Hotel Fleuris - Puerto Princesa City


  1. All the topics are valuable and relevant to our personal life and current functions. We suggest that the duration of the training will be shortened to 2 to 3 days.
    • The technique to handle stress
    • How to live a healthy and stress free life
    • Know one's self/personality determinants
    • The success in life defends in the way we handled stress
    • Everything must be controlled by mind
  2. Facilitators are knowledgeable on their subject matter
  3. Resource speakers really did their job well
  4. Secretariat - approachable
  5. For some of us, the whole topic was totally new, and for others, some parts of the topic refreshed our duty/memory on knowledge we had in college which was 3 1/2 decades back. The topics were presented clearly and interesting which made us realize the importance of accounting and budget allocation in our offices. The materials given which contained the answers to the exercises, made it easier for us to understand the lectures. Others found it difficult because they were not familiar with most of the terms used, but overall the lecture was "good measure, pressed down and running over." All credits go to our speaker.
  6. We found our speaker very knowledgeable and unselfish in imparting his knowledge. He made us feel comfortable and made the topic seemed very easy. We felt his sincerity in wanting us to learn and gave good emphasis on what is important.
  7. We enjoyed the workshop - where we were grouped into 5 groups with different members from different department/offices. We developed camaraderie and friendship among us which led us to more enjoyable seminar experience and atmosphere.
