Business and the Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Success at Scale at London

October 27, 2015 from 5:30pm to 7pm
With the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) now adopted, attention is shifting to how they will be delivered. While responsibility will ultimately fall to government, leaders across sectors now recognise that the challenges are too great and too systemic for any one of them to tackle alone, and that business’ contribution will be pivotal.  There is growing appreciation that business is well positioned to drive sustainable and inclusive…See More

Dear Penny,

I am BUDS M. FERNANDO, a member of BFP. I'm writing to seek your support in an on-going advocacy the quality movement of the Philippines is conducting. That is, the creation of the TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENT (TQM) COMMISSION for the Philippine Government. I humbly request that you write to our President Benigno S. Aquino III (through email or airmail) to convince him to champion the creation of the TQM Commission. It is our belief that the dynamic, innovative and comprehensive systems of TQM can greatly improve government service delivery and eliminate (if not minimize) graft and corruption in government. You are one of the many foreigners we have chosen because we know your voice can make a difference. I hope you can help us. Thank you.

Email address of President Aquino: pnoy@noynoyaquino.ph
