Poe-Llamanzares, CEO of A-team 360 proudly noted that the secret to the success of his company was due to the support of his strategic business partners and team.

“What I learned as a business owner is that real leadership is knowing when to take a step back and let the real experts take the lead”

After 3 years of building up the group the firm is now comprised of strategic partnerships between a 360 marketing agency called A3, Oracle Media Group, and research and analytics firm WR advisory group.

The owners of the said companies joined Poe-Llamanzares at the conference to encourage foreign investors to consider outsourcing their marketing, data research, and creative needs to the Philippines. Poe Llamanzares went on to cite the amount of economic opportunity the creative industry alone provides. Noting that a big chunk of that industry comes from marketing, content creation, and other related industries.

“The Philippines is currently one of the world’s leading providers of creative services bringing in roughly $4 billion dollars in revenue. If you’re going to outsource your creative needs, I would proudly suggest investing in a Filipino team.”

There were other marketing firms from the Philippines that were also awarded in the same ceremony. Poe-Llamanzares noted he was even prouder to know that he was not alone in representing the country in this internal awarding ceremony.

“Each firm here does something that makes them stand out. They’ve achieved so much in the field of marketing. I’m humbled to be able to stand shoulder to shoulder with these industry experts. I have so much left to learn. I’m truly grateful.”
