Philippine Tatler and The Proscenium at Rockwell presented the first ever Generation T speaker series with our 2017 Gen T listers, Abba Napa and Bjorn Pardo.

This intimate get together with only 50 people was an evening of enrichment and the perfect occasion to make new connections, while catching up with old friends.

DJ Emel Rowe played chic tunes as guests arrived and sipped on a selection of gin and tonics, wines and champagne. Happy Ongpauco Tiu made sure that the Moroccan feast was both gastronomically and visually spectacular – tablescapes to match! Gorgeous flowers and whimsical plates adorned each table, bringing every corner of the room to life.

Abba, of The Moment Group, spoke about her personal journey in the industry, the booming food and beverage scene and trends. Contrastingly, Bjorn, of Xend and Jinio, spoke about disruptive business trends, e-commerce and logistics. Guests eagerly shot their hands up to ask Abba and Bjorn questions after their short talks, engaging in interactive, inquisitive banter.

Food was plentiful, drinks abundant and the energy was high. It was an amalgamation of like-minded individuals all eager to learn, socialize, network and bond. After the talks ended the night continued, packed with laughter, smiles and an exchange of high quality conversation.
