Int’l TV producer visits ABCollege

The National Broadcasting Company (NBC) Dateline television producer John Block shared his experiences and insights to Andres Bonifacio College students last August 10 and 13, during his visit in the Philippines. He was accompanied with his wife Maria and daughter Vanessa.

The NBC producer came to the Philippines to make a documentary about his late father’s caregiver who is the husband of the officer-in-charge of the office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs (VPAA) and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Mrs. Nellie R. Saberon.

Due to the combined efforts of the OIC of the office of the VPAA, the HRMO Director and the college administration, a seminar on “Running after the Hourglass: Managing Organizational Communication, Multi-tasking and Time Management with Optimum Effectiveness and Efficiency” with Block as the speaker was conducted last August 10 at the third floor of the Felicedad I building.

Participants were almost from the AB College Graduate School which includes Dipolog City Mayor Evelyn Y. Uy and Police Superintendent Reynaldo Maclang.  Selected undergraduate students and faculty members also attended the seminar.

The NBC producer showed a documentary and he discussed it with the participants, after which an open forum followed.

Due to the request of the Mass Communication Society adviser, Mrs. Jasmin Padios-Ybañez , an exclusive seminar was also conducted for the mass communication students  with the aim of making students learn more about documenting a story which is significant to their course.

The NBC producer said that students with the passion of becoming a good producer must nurture their curiosity, never stop asking questions and never stop finding ways on how to connect with people.

“They must engage in conversation, be blessed with intense curiosity and should find ways to tell stories,” the NBC producer continued.

He also added that students must never assume that [they] know everything when [embarking] on a story [since] everybody has different insights.
