    The enterprise arm of Globe Telecom won two Gold Stevie Awards under IBAs’ Corporate & Community and Branded Entertainment divisions, for its Leadership Innovation Forum and its Project Eagle thematic campaign, respectively.

The event emphasized on catalyzing change through promoting digital transformation, creating a purpose-led and future-fit culture, and tackling global problems through business collaborations.
