Guaranteeing Better Tomorrows By Forging Our Leadership Today

What began in 2006 as a gathering of Cebu’s brightest student leaders with the vision of preparing them for the corporate world, has become an annual phenomenon that brings together the top-ranking students from the country’s finest universities for a 3-day summit on business and leadership – the Aboitiz Future Leaders Business Summit (AFLBS).

Over the Summit’s history, participants include working scholars, varsity athletes, honor students, and organization leaders, each bringing an inspiring story, visionary ideals and high hopes for the future of the country. They are guided by Aboitiz executive leaders from different business industries who impart their knowledge, experience, and philosophies to the country’s future leaders.

The Summit provides delegates with basic leadership and management strategies and how they are concretized in a corporate environment. It engages participants to interact, network and establish professional ties with Aboitiz leaders and talents as well with fellow delegates. Through plenary discussions, teambuilding exercises, and team challenges, the Summit also aims to bring out the best from the student delegates, inspire them to develop a renewed hope in the country, and encourage them to strive for excellence in all things.

The event will happen on November 9-11, 2017 in Cebu City.
