Feedback From Our Partners

"The overall course was excellent. I very much enjoyed the discussions and concrete experience sharing the workshop provided. I also enjoyed Apin's flexible style and his wealth of knowledge. Thank you to all! It was one of the best KM training I attended."

– Herve Berger
KM Officer of UNESCAP

"It was really the most practical KM training with participants who know exactly what they are talking about.

– Naylin Oo, UNESCAP


"Topics discussed were very interesting and can be applied to any business processes. Participants were given a chance to express their views/feedbacks on the topics discussed. Resource persons were able to respond clearly to questions and clarifications.

"What I like the most about the activity is the understanding of the process and the tools and techniques used to come up with the identification of the problem and possible solutions. This gives me the knowledge to recommend/suggest any business processes improvement when i go back to my workplace.

"I like the tools that were discussed because these are very helpful in the application of our e-orientation system. I also like the support that was given to us. We have lots of fun and learn many tools, in other words the training session is" "BALANCED".

"It gave us an opportunity to learn new things and be able to apply it in our daily personal and professional lives.

"I like the challenge and fun in the development of the e-orientation lessons using Captivate and Photoshop. It is very rewarding when we view the modules already running.

"The HR activity provides us opportunities to learn new skills and knowledge that we can use in our present and future work. It also provides us "real experience" in creating documentation of a system. Lastly, it gives us an opportunity to show our dedication, patience and teamwork in accomplishing the given task."

WHO Philippines is satisfied with the expertise, reliability and professionalism of CCLFI. We are aware that the end-client, DOH, had engaged CCLFI in other projects funded by other donor agencies, which indicates that DOH is also satisfied with the quality of processes and outputs of CCLFI.

“Ohayou gozaimasu! (good morning!) O genki desu ka? (how are you?)

“Sir Apin, domou arigatou gozaimasu (thank you very much) for sending these references to us.

“I learned so much from the short course. It was intellectually stimulating and I realized from there that KM is such a very interesting field of learning.  Thank you for your patience, especially to me, on those times when I raise questions and sharings. I appreciated much your kind response then. 

“Now, I can begin my work here in Toshiba with a more clear perspective on how to put the bits and pieces together, through our strategy and our initiatives.

“Yes, cheers! I look forward to more exchanges of conversations with you on KM via e-mails and e-group.”

What I appreciate the most is when we walked on the green grass in the garden barefoot. I have learned a lot during the past three days. I would like to follow the example of the group on being very open. You have been challenging us to change and improve our projects. And I have learned that from demethodologizing myself, I have to retool myself. And this time, I will be with the people. Because when I do it with the people, I can never go wrong. Third, I will go back to being creative. We all have the sense of creativity but we tend to forget it as we live our busy lives. We sometimes forget to smell the flowers, to feel the air. And this group has reminded me of what I was and I will stay just like that.

As a result of the work of CCLFI, we at the Malampaya MMT are less vulnerable to the loss of knowledge resulting from the frequent changes in its membership. The learning orientation and procedures installed with the help of CCLFI helped us in making continuous learning and documentation a habit. We are approaching our vision of becoming a ‘living and learning organization.’

Your topic was very interesting and validating. Your explanation about KM answered some of the gray areas in my mind and sort of clarified or linked some of our company’s activities related to KM concepts. I would like to know more about the subject and please let me know if there will be future talks or trainings/ seminars/learning sessions about it. ... Rest assured that the learnings about KM will be shared to the organization as a tool or engine for continuous improvement.”

I love your straight-forward lecture on KM. Thanks for reminding us to NEVER stop learning.

Kapansin-pansin ang kanilang kakayahan o kaalaman tungkol sa pagpapatakbo ng workshop, hindi lamang sa antas ng 'ulo' (teorya) subalit higit ay sa antas ng 'puso' (intra-personal). Wala na akong maimumungkahi sa kanila dahil ito ay kanilang nabalanse ng husto at may kabukasan o `flexibility’ sa approach/programa batay sa nakitang pangangailangan ng mga kalahok na grantees.”
[The capacities of workshop facilitators are noteworthy, both in theory or intellect (the “head”) and more in intra-personal (“the heart”) skills. I cannot suggest further improvements because they were able to balance the two and they showed openness and flexibility in the approach/program of the workshop in response to the needs of the participants-grantees.]

The exchange of ideas went very well. I would call it an awakening... On the improvements, I agree with everyone, we need more time to discuss. I feel that I still have to know the person wearing the ideas so there is a need for more time.

I learned that learning can be tremendously fun… the atmosphere becomes conducive if you have fun while learning.”

The process, the flow, the sequence of events were very well placed and very appropriate that even the games brought us to higher levels of interaction.”

Here, we are taught to take notice of those that are not usually taken notice of in the ordinary course of thinking.”

I passed through the `unlearning’ stage, then the `learning’ stage, then perhaps it may be more than this, but the end of it is the ‘appreciation’ stage.”

“Nakakatuwa [It was fun]  non-threatening, enjoy.”

“Ibang klase si Apin [Apin is of a different class], open siya [he is open],walang ere [no airs], secure, welcoming.”

“Sobrang lalim  kailangan ko ng panahon para maisip at sabihing oo nga ano" [Very profound  I need time to reflect before I can say 'yes that's right.']”

“I think this is what they call reflective teaching in action.”

“The past two days have enlightened me about the possibilities that a living learning organization can explore and can become. KM seems to cut across many aspects of organizational and human development prospects. How do we maximize it?”

“The KM training enlightened me and made me realize that knowledge management is more than just developing knowledge products and tools. It is more about imbibing a living and learning culture.”

“I love the idea of having a learning journal and time in the KM workshop where we as participants are given the opportunity to reflect on our learnings and document our insights and recommended actions.”

“This seminar is very enriching not only to our work but also to my personal life.”

“Good facilitators. Good process. Good experience!”

“It is not the number of training days that will give one the best insights but the awareness of the internal processes that happen in one's mind so that knowledge gained is transformed into creative and innovative ideas. This two-day workshop did broaden my horizon of how learning happens.”

“Good workshop! Good combination of facilitators, modules and exercises. It inspired me to do self discovery to improve my personal and professional life.”
