rey_andresThe Filipino American Chamber of Commerce of Orange County (FACCOC)  has for more than two decades earned the reputation not only on providing the healthy climate for businesses to thrive especially for Filipino entrepreneurs and professionals. The Chamber is also focused on the next generation of businesspeople in their start-ups to pave the way for successful business operation by equipping them with the necessary skills and relevant knowledge courtesy of people who’ve there and have proven themselves over the years.

Learning the business ropes did not come easy for most of these industry experts who had to undergo the proverbial baptism of fire. While many businesses took the necessary risks during their process of growth the hard way, the needed information now comes handy and easily and thanks to people who share them unselfishly.

FACCOC and its membership have been through a number of business cycles and had survived the rough cycles. A number of these experts will be under one roof to share their valuable marketing ideas and knowledge in complying with basic government regulations on the conduct of their businesses and provide the opportunity to mingle and network with like-mended businessmen and professionals.

On February 18 at the Tangata Restaurant at the Bower’s Museum in Sta. Ana (2015 N, Main Street),  FACCOC will present the 7th season of the Annual Business Strategic Workshop which is also a sort of a Small Business Summit starting at 5:30 p.m.

Like in the previous years’ workshop, many entrepreneurs are expected to take advantage of the many benefits of attending this signature event, one of the four slated for the year by one of the most active associations in Orange County.
