E-Commerce & Blogging for to-Retire UP Employees

Last May 27 to 29, I was at the APEC Digital Opportunity Center, National Computer Center, UP Diliman Quezon City and conducted a workshop about e-store creation, online payment, blogging 101, and Internet / blog marketing (interested parties can attend our August 10 to 12 session).
This was made possible by the UP Center for Women's Studies whom I've been actively supporting in their IT literacy efforts through DigitalFilipino since 2007.

My session was part of the "Entrepreneurship and ICT for to Retire UP Employees” seminar workshop that happened last May 25 to 29 where a lot of them are women. Participants are about to retire within five or ten years from now. The objective is to develop and enhance the entrepreneurial and ICT skills and knowledge of the participants.

I felt fortunate to be part of advocacies such as this that aims to spread the knowledge about e-commerce to women locally and internationally. In the past few years, also got several club members involved in the process.

Thanks to social networking, a lot of us are able to keep in touch up to this time.
