Copylandia Office Systems Corporation, one of the country’s foremost names in office and printing equipment, recently participated in the first ever Philippine Higher Education Presidents’ Summit last August 15, 2014.
The groundbreaking summit is the first of its kind to gather 500 of the country’s college and university presidents under one roof to tackle issues relating to higher education.
It was organized by the Philippine Business for Higher Education (PBEd) in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) as part of their joint Higher Education and Productivity Project. The one-day event was held at the SMX Taguig Convention Center in SM Aura, Bonifacio Global City.
Among the prestigious speakers were US Ambassador to the Philippines Philip Goldberg; USAID Mission Director Gloria Steele; and PBEd Chairman and PHINMA CEO Ramon Del Rosario. Also on the speaker list were best-selling author and celebrated speaker Richard Gerver, and Anant Agarwal, CEO of Harvard- and MIT-supported learning portal edX.
