CLARK, PAMPANGA -– Another prestigious award has been given to international business expert, Dr. Andreas “Andi” Klippe, as he contends with various speakers on the renowned International Speaker Slam (ISS) competition in Frankfurt, Germany.
Over 148 speakers from 19 different nations, speaking 6 different languages, have competed with each other – all of which Dr. Klippe managed to defeat and paved the way to winning the Excellence Award as Best International Expert.
In his 4-minute winning speech, Dr. Klippe described his “Journey to Asia” and how “the hand test” and “the beer test” have helped him in starting a flood protection company in Asia in 2007.
“Let’s go to Asia. Asia is the world’s fastest-growing market.”
He also shared his enthusiasm to inspire other businesses to follow his methods as an international business expert and promote Asia and the Philippines.
This way, Dr. Klippe persuaded the members of the jury which is comprised of a top manager from Lufthansa, a representative from a leading German publisher: Campus-Verlaf and the remaining three are media professionals from the region.
The competition was held in the studio of Herman Scherer – one of Germany’s best-selling authors.
Flood Control Asia RS Corp. successfully launched its Flood Control Application Training following the completion of the Flood Protection project for the Masantol Main Health Center (MMHC) in Pampanga, Philippines on June 10, 2021.
The event took place at the Masantol Municipal Hall in Pampanga, Philippines, and the RS Flood Experts spearheaded it.
The local rescue units from the Municipality of Masantol were present as they certainly are the first responders in the events of typhoons and flooding in the area.
Headed by Engr. Jonathan Tato of RS, the ceremony began with a water test demo on the RS Demountable Flood Barriers. He also demonstrated how to operate the newly installed flood barriers within their area of responsibility.
Luisito Guintu, the representative of Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Offices of Masantol said that the training gave him and his team some insights on how they can improve their response to natural disasters, especially floods since it’s one of the major problems in the said province.
Actually, Flood Control Asia [RS Corp.] trained us well. The flood control system from them is well done. The patients of our Main Health Center really need it.
