The UTalk Annual Party 2018 held on February 21, 2018 at the Pines View Hotel located in the City of Baguio, with the theme of "UTalk Glam" saw our employees actively participating in the various activities throughout the program which really captured the essence of the night.

Our employees were gathered to celebrate the diversity of our teams. It was an opportunity to come together, celebrate past achievements and look forward to new perspectives!

Norhaine Dadula,  UTalk's Senior Operations Manager, took the stage to share an encouraging opening message about how UTalk as an organization, comprised of hardworking and competent professionals, successfully overcame challenges brought by the previous year:

"Welcome to this year's Utalk Annual Spring Festival Party. 2017 has been a year full of trials and tribulations. We have endured many hardships and seemingly hopeless situations. We have encountered many obstacles and challenges but despite all that, we have triumphed! All of those trials made us stronger, more united and committed to our goal of providing the best English education to Chinese students. We have not faltered. It was also a year of gains and milestones. We, as one united family, celebrated these successes together. With your continued effort and dedication, we shall face another year of Utalk ups and downs, gains and losses, hard work and successes."

The party continued until the wee hours with more entertainment and UTalkers enjoying the scrumptious food with plenty of options much to the delight of everyone who came from different departments. This event certainly gave them another opportunity to socialize and enjoy the festivities.  One of the much talked about part of the program was the singing contest that showcased our employees' talent in music. Congratulations to Glen Anthony Balangao of Team Alexis who won the first prize for the singing competition! Well done to Ellyshah Giana La Torre and Christianne Peralta for runner-up winners.                                                       

Another highlight of the night was our annual awards ceremony that recognized the hard work and dedication of our employees who consistently go the extra mile in their roles and ultimately contributing to the success of the entire team. Congratulations to Rommel De Guzman of the Lesson Development Department, Nikko Cortez of the IT Department, Acey Clay Rosete of the Software Application Development Team, Eden Anyayahan of the Admin Department, Bon Peralta of the Teacher Support Department and Fretzie Salonga of the Human Resources Department who were awarded as our Star Employees for this year's annual party. Your contributions to your respective teams make us truly proud!

 Just before the glamorous event came to a close, the much coveted award - Star of the Night - was given. Said award was to show appreciation for employees who put in extra effort in dressing up for the night's theme. Several candidates took part and UTalkers cheered for their respective choices. The selection of the winner was a challange since the candidates were very competitive and equally glamorous which eventually resulted to a quadruple tie! Congratulations to Jacel Mar Javar, Joselito Ydia Jr., Julius Clifton Dacanay and Kenny Lowell Ngaosi for being our Stars of the Night. You all looked glamorous!

Congratulations to everyone who won awards, as well as to all UTalkers who attended the annual celebration and dressed up in theme. It was great to celebrate our achievements together. Let's all look forward to an even more glamorous Annual Party in 2019!
