Let's meet Andrew Troy Nicolas, the CEO and the man behind the Tag Media Group. For years of being an IT in the Center of the business world, Wall Street, New York City, USA, Andrew Troy Nicolas shifted to help the rising Tag Media and Public Relations eventually became Tag Media Group that manages concerts, advertising, marketing, public relations and campaigns of different companies from different industries in the Asia Pacific. 

Troy as his team calls him, is the one handling the management of all IT related items and monitoring it like the social media accounts, multiple websites under the company and even some of the content. He is making sure that all has a positive impact in the lives of the clients and followers. 

His expertise is Business Intelligence (BI), checking everyday the data as the basis of the actual position. BI comprises the strategies and technologies used by enterprises for the data analysis of business information. BI technologies provide historical, current, and predictive views of business operations.

As the Group CEO of Tag Media Group, he approves the launching of AAA Cosmetics and Trading Company (GlamHigh Cosmetics, Graceful Skin Essentials, Immune CEE, GlutaGlow Slimming Drinks) last November 2020. As per analysis, even during pandemic, there’s still a demand from consumers who are into weight loss, those who are always in online meetings, for health and wellness and still to beautify or improve their personal appearances since most are staying home so more focus on their physical appearance and well being. As of this writing, the company has more than 100 distributors nationwide with few already in Milan and Taiwan. Targeting at least a thousand at the end of this year, not bad business during Pandemic. 

According to Troy, “It’s all about big data and actual projections. We will also continue our AG Builders and Developers, the construction company under Tag Media Group. We’re hiring right now since clients, even afraid of this pandemic still likes to secure their family with a home as their legacy. The brands under AAA Cosmetics are still new but there’s a lot of inquiries. The events are still here even online as we wanted to still be relevant and the followers we have likes to learn more and to see what’s new so we have Cocktail Hour under Asia Leaders Awards, the show with the honourees of ALA to present their lighter side of success. We’re not stopping and keeps on innovating.”

The signature events under Tag Media and Public Relations (Asia Digital Marketing Expo, Asia HR Expo, Asia E Commerce Expo, Dwelo, Asia’s Best Singing Competition)  might be in halt because of this global health crisis but Asia Leaders Forums and Awards (ALA) are still thriving with the support of its stakeholders and organising committee. Announcement of honourees will be this May 20, 2021 and awarding ceremony will be on November 11, 2021 at Embassy of Singapore.

Andrew Troy Nicolas: Meet the Man Behind the Tag Media Group

Saturday, May 1, 2021

Cocktail Hour will be launched on May 3, 2021, at Asia Leaders Awards Facebook Page with Renan Ponce Morales who is the Managing Director of Paragon Group of Companies, Inc. Lots of online shows right now due to the inability to have physical activities as mandated by the government that usually tackle heavy discussions about business and leadership. 

Asia Leaders Awards theme for this year is hope and optimism. Same as the color of the year, yellow and gray. A marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting. Two independent colors highlight how different elements come together to support one another. What we all need right now. Support and Unity. 


This year, Asia Leaders Forums and Awards will present the exemplary leaders in the Philippines with a twist, to discuss anything under the sun, their advocacy and passion. No more of those mind-setting heavy presentations about the usual business scenario or discussions about their companies, we have a global health crisis, we’re in a survival mode. 

It will be between the leaders with the resident host, award-winning and talented entrepreneur and comedian Frida Nepomuceno, daughter of master impressionist Willie Nepomuceno. Very fitting to make the show as unique as possible to showcase the lighter side of success as a squeeze from the guests. 

Renan Ponce Pascual-Morales, or “Bespren” as what his friends and constituents normally call him, is the current President of the National Movement of Young Legislators in Region 3. He founded the Bestfriend ng Bayan Foundation in 2015 which provides assistance to rape victims, out-of-school youths, women caught in sex trafficking and prostitution, People With Disabilities (PWDs), and senior citizens who are neglected.

Renan is a former professional car racer, an N-1 champion, and F3 Formula Drive. After his racing career, he started to focus on different advocacies to help uplift the lives of his countrymen. He became a public servant and a town councilor in Nueva Ecija. Later on, he also got involved in supporting different sports groups such as Basketball and Volleyball Tournaments, Persons with Disability Paraplegic Athletes, and the Philippine Memory Sports.

The announcement of finalists will be on May 20, 2022, with the presentation of the whole awards committee and Gala night will be on 11-11-21.

Meet the Asia Leaders Awards 2021 Awards Committee On November 11, 2021

Monday, April 26, 2021

DynaQuest, an award-winning Blockchain solutions provider, which has been globally recognized in the most prestigious Blockchain expo and forums is a Philippine-based systems integration specialist who specializes in the adoption and integration of frontier technologies into existing business and enterprise systems. Armed with the expertise on change management, knowledgebase, resource management, and technical qualifications to guide businesses in their Blockchain transformation journey. 


The company embeds a Blockchain-centric culture that is conductive to enterprises for their business innovation, new market ventures, and decentralized economic participation.

Blockchain is leading the frontier technology in the business transformation department as the platform is being primed as the essential backbone of business and enterprise information. To date, Blockchain is already making transformative benefits into the world of banking and finance as global banks are in a position to save between $8 to $25 billion annually from infrastructure operating costs. Further, Gartner estimates that the annual business value derived from Blockchain will be worth at an estimate of $3 trillion by 2030, and by the same year, Gartner projects that 10% to 20% of the global economy will be running on Blockchain-based systems.

Global business is being changed by the rapid advance of frontier technology. These technologies such as Blockchain have allowed consortiums, Fortune 500 companies, and global enterprises to rethink and reimagine how transactions are done. In fact, according to the executives in the recent Deloitte’s Global Blockchain Survey of 86% have set Blockchain as a priority of their business strategy and transformation in the 2020's decade, while according to Forbes Business Insights, the current rate of global Blockchain adoption projects that the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of Blockchain-enabled markets will be at staggering 56.1% in which the global Blockchain market will be worth $69 Billion by 2027 from $2.1 Billion in 2019. 

With this acceleration of Blockchain adoption, the market is at the precipice of huge changes: there will be new leaders, new challenges and there will be new forces that will challenge the status quo. Failing to adapt and transform with the technology will prove to be a major hindrance for businesses in terms of their competitiveness, cost-efficiency, and long-term survival beyond the late stages of the decade.

In a closer look at the impact of the technology in the day-to-day micro-processes; Blockchain allows businesses to verify and process information seamlessly while significantly cutting down on costs from delays resulting from transactional data needed to be verified by back-office work. As such, the transformative effect follows a broad but extensive market where portability and interoperability are dictating markets and their convergence. It leaves no room for silo and niche as the technology of today is easily ported or retrofitted to fit diverse industries, aligned markets and used as turnkey factors against even the most unique cases of business needs.

Blockchain Transformation

In just a few years, Blockchain has progressed from a buzzword, to a nascent technology and to the most sought after technology in business transformation. The early adopters were the consortia consisting of the world’s biggest banks, the world’s tech titans and the global leaders in trade and shipping. The promising results of their respective use cases demonstrated new levels of efficiency being reached alongside an optimise process with very little friction as much as possible. It wasn’t long until enterprises began forming strategic partnerships to explore the Blockchain space and how the technology can reinvent their business as well as reach new levels of competitiveness. PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) published a report named Global Blockchain Survey. The report states:

Financial services industry accounts for 46% of the advancement in developing Blockchain, while industrial manufacturing (12%), energy & utility (12%) and healthcare (11%) are trailing.

* 84% of leaders responded that their companies have some involvement in Blockchain

* 30% of the survey respondents believe that China will be the leader in global Blockchain infrastructure by 2023 and 18% believe that the United States will still be the leaders of Blockchain, as 29% of the same respondents stated that from 2018-2021, the United States are the current global leaders.

What is truly astounding is how we went from “Wow to Now” in the business transformation with Blockchain. We are seeing the years grow shorter in between adoption and commercial viability towards Blockchain’s maturity. Since every business-minded person now has a grasp on Blockchain’s process, the question is how businesses – such as the SMEs can get started in Blockchain – given the depth of requirements and steep learning curve of the said technology. 


Despite the challenges, the SME market is projected to grow at a higher CAGR from 2020-2025 according to MarketsAndMarkets’ Blockchain Report, in reference to the technology becoming more portable, accessible and more adoption models emerge out of the solutions market in the coming years. In fact, there are already proven Blockchain framework to follow out of the SME market in the form of the following:

• SMEs and Associations banding together to form and fund a Blockchain alliance

• Key partnerships with technology and solutions providers

• Study and build upon the Blockchain as a Service emerging market where instead of

building your own, you can sign up with a provider to enable Blockchain basing on your use case.

Blockchain Transformation in the Philippine Economy

The Philippines has always been an early adopter of emerging technologies: from relational servers to cloud computing and virtual infrastructures, the country’s largest businesses, and banks are always the first to adopt key technologies and they are always setting the standards. As the country is gearing up for economic recovery from the pandemic and seeking new grounds to establish new levels of economic opportunities when it comes to frontier technologies, Blockchain transformation is among the prime ventures in which most businesses will make it a priority in this decade. 

Today, banks, startups, and strategic partnerships between regulatory bodies and global technology providers are leading the way for Blockchain adoption in the country. Key transformation in the following economic zones will help uplift the country as it roars back as a tiger economy in Asia and the Pacific:

• Blockchain in Banking for unprecedented efficiency in operations

• Adoption of digital wallets and managed digital identities for economic inclusion

• Technological transformation in healthcare and insurance for overall better health outcomes

• New tech hubs and tech economic zones to drive in frontier technology investors and capital venture

• Adoption of fintech to help businesses and the government save billions annually from paper-based and traditional transactions.

• Blockchain adoption in shipping, trade and logistics to enable greater value in the local, regional and global value chain.

The pandemic has stunted the growth of the Philippine economy. From what once a very resilient economy that was able to withstand several global financial contractions, had posted economic losses from last year. Such losses were not seen since the aftermath of the second world war. As a catalyst for recovery, the key economic areas of the Philippines must include process efficiency and cost-efficiency:

• Business – Improve overall efficiency of the business and transaction process

• Government – Improving efficiency in its overall administrative structure from day-to-day management to the efficiency of its tax collection, mobilization on projects, and lawmaking.

• People – Promote an inclusive economy to promote and encourage economic participation from its poorest sectors in order for these sectors to become productive in their economic contributions in areas such as microfinance and tax remittance.

• Economic Zones – Create more special economic areas to attract investors on frontier and catalyst technology to help boost the global competitiveness of its province / regions.

Real Estate and Property Awards 2020: KMV Asia Development Corporation recently won the Best Real Estate Development and Management Company in the Philippines

Thursday, January 21, 2021

"Winning the award for three straight years is a testament to SYKES’ passion, commitment to excellence, and solid teamwork to serve our clients, customers, employees, and community. Although 2020 has not been an easy year for everyone, we have not lost sight of our purpose. We endeavored to beat the odds and continue to operate our business thriving under the new normal. We appreciate that international business awards such as Asia Leaders Awards recognized our hard work in staying true to our mission of helping and serving people one caring interaction at a time,” said Shane Baetz, Vice President Regional Support Services, APAC operations.


Award-winning call center SYKES was once again recognized as the BPO Company of the Year by the Asia Leaders Awards. The company was awarded for its exemplary commitment to driving and improving the local business process outsourcing (BPO) industry, while still going above and beyond expectations with its pandemic response.

“Recognizing global excellence among its awardees, the Asia Leaders Awards annually acknowledges industry leaders who are making significant changes not only in their respective fields, but also promoting the Philippines as a premier business hub in Asia and beyond. Its awards committee is made up of esteemed organizations and accomplished individuals from different industries.

The BPO Company of the Year award is given to the organization that best demonstrates outstanding BPO management, work culture and environment, and consistent pursuit of excellence and value. SYKES continues to be an industry frontrunner in this regard, having showcased all these qualities and achievements, on top of delivering solutions amid the challenges of the pandemic.

With limited time and resources, the company was able to adjust its business model and quickly adopted an effective work-from-home setup, which has enabled 75-100% of its entire workforce to work remotely. In doing so, it deployed thousands of PC sets, complete with accessories and office chairs, and provided WiFi allowance to those who are amenable to the setup. Meanwhile, for those who still reported on-site, SYKES offered free temporary accommodations with shuttle services and food provisions. It has also increased sanitary and physical distancing measures within the office premises and provided all employees with a care package consisting of a face mask, face shield, and alcohol or hand sanitizer. 

Displaying resilience, courage, and an indomitable spirit, SYKES has ensured uninterrupted business operations throughout the entire year and was even able to expand its workforce, employing thousands of displaced Filipino workers. Its business continuity plan was carried out successfully because of the teamwork, agility, and laser-like focus of leaders and team members alike.

SYKES also bagged the prestigious award due to its high-performance workplace that fosters employee engagement and continuous improvement through staff motivation, training, and coaching and development. A significant component of its employee-engagement effort is its SYKES Choices (for Manila sites) and Involve (for Cebu sites) programs. Comprised of 20 interest clubs, the programs hold several activities wherein SYKESers can showcase their talents and hobbies while having fun and developing bonds with coworkers. In the time of the pandemic, these clubs served as an avenue for the employees to pursue their passions and achieve work-life balance.

Furthermore, the BPO industry pioneer’s long-established skill development programs such as the SYKES ALPHA (Accelerated Leadership Program for High Achievers) and the Career Selfie help SYKESers unlock their full potential and empower them towards career growth. This year, despite having to work separately, SYKES was able to achieve great success and maintain activities under these programs to ensure that employees still gain professional progress.

With its excellence in the face of disruption, SYKES was also recognized by various award-giving bodies across different categories in the past year. It won two trophies from the Stevie Awards, namely a Silver Stevie for the Most Innovative Work-From-Home Plan and a Bronze Stevie for the Most Innovative Workplace Redesign. SYKES was also hailed as the Top Employer of the Year by the Asia CEO Awards.

2020 truly was a year unlike any other, but the BPO company is proud to have risen above every challenge while nurturing the development of its people, clients, and community.

“SYKES is very grateful for the different industry recognitions that we have received. We carry them with pride and gratitude together with our close to 18,000-strong employees in the country. As we grow our family here in the Philippines, we believe that these recognitions speak for the culture of our organization where each member is given an incredible opportunity to work, learn, and grow,” said Baetz.
