HONORABLE MR. RENE LOCSIN LEDESMA Consul Ad Honorem Consulate of the Republic of Bulgaria Dear Mr. Ledesma, Greetings from GREGORIO OCA LEADERSHIP AND DEVELOPMENT (GOLD)! GOLD is a non-profit organization that aims to be the leadership institute to help the Philippines transform into how Captain Oca developed the maritime industry - from an ordinary to an extraordinary industry. GOLD will produce extraordinary leaders who can change the country beyond what is expected from it. Captain Gregorio S. Oca was the perfect example of a transformational leader instinctively switching styles according to the people he led and the work that needed to be done. He was a pivotal figure in the maritime labor sector, serving as a voice for the seafarers and a bridge between them and the international seafaring community. Without him, the Associated Marine Officers’ and Seamen’s Union of the Philippines (AMOSUP), Seamen’s Hospital, Seamen’s Village, and many others, would have not been possible. Captain Oca accomplished all this by first establishing trust, then made it a point to balance the needs of the organization against the needs of his team. People with this transformational leadership style are true leaders who inspire their teams constantly with a shared vision of the future. GOLD will be the avenue that will produce the transformational leaders, who will be the successors of the new league of maritime industry leaders. With this, we are pleased to inform you that GOLD will have a one of a kind HISTORY MEETS PRESENT FORUM, which aims to promote mentorship within the maritime industry. Mentorship is one of the advocacies of GOLD. Maritime student leaders and young maritime professionals will have a chance to absorb the wisdom of industry pillars, who have years of successful experience to share with their successors. The event will be held on October 24 and 25, 2012. The first day will be a GOLD Communication and Mentorship 101 workshop led by Ms. Lilet La Vina, a communications specialist who has led seminars for Thomson Reuters, Manulife and the 1st International Seafarer Family Convention to name a few. She is also a columnist for the Classifieds Section of Manila Bulletin. GOLD will also be inviting business and political leaders, who have strongly supported the maritime industry.
