Note from Jomar Reyes – Founding Advisor
It was an honour to see a collection of inspirational minds gather, not at the same place, but at the same time. For me it was an historic moment to look back on in many years from now, and remember the magic of connecting some great people together.
I look forward to see the above initiatives (And more) come to fruition, and I hope that we as the advisory group, can help steer our industry through these changing times and into the unknowns of the new world ahead.
