At the Marketing 2.0 conference in Dubai, A-team 360 Reputation Management Firm won the “outstanding leadership award”. The local firm headed by Brian Poe Llamanzares was recognized along side some of the worlds leading players in the marketing space.

“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 three (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 similar 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.”

Real stories. Real people.

We believe that life isn’t about a binary of ones and zeros - but about the sum of our hopes and dreams, our struggles and heartaches, our tragedies and triumphs.

The things that unite us are far stronger than the things that divide us.

And those stories are why we are alike.
