On Saturday, February 2, 2019, Save Philippine Seas is hosting its first open Commservation Workshop for the year in partnership with Nipa Brew, Filipino handcrafted beverages brewed for adventure. SPS and Nipa have been partners since 2015 for various events.

Developing Your Project Pitch: Learn how to turn your idea/s into a project pitch and present it to a panel, your bosses, peers, or potential investors/funders. In this workshop, we'll answer what elements are in a strong project pitch, and what makes a project pitch memorable. For this session, Raffy Magno, public servant and social entrepreneur, will serve as the resource speaker.
Public Speaking: This workshop, led by Anna Oposa, aims to build speaking and presenting skills, and offer tips and tricks on communicating your message effectively in front of a crowd, whether it's a in a board room with 10 people or an audience of 1,000 people. Anna brings years of experience as a musical theatre performer, public speaker, and project manager into the workshop.
