Guests together with Matt Gilbert, Head of Business and Partnerships of ICS


The Magsaysay Learning Resources, Inc. and the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS) jointly hosted an orientation and networking cocktail last October 30, 2017 at the Robert Hall, Times Plaza Building in Manila.

Delegates and invited guests attended the cocktail reception and met the Institute’s Head of Business and Partnerships, Matt Gilbert. The ICS Head shared a brief overview about the courses and programs offered by the Institute. The event also served as a platform for the maritime professionals to interact and associate with the ICS Head through an open forum where they engaged in discussions and shared maritime insights. Magsaysay Learning’s President Alexander Querol and Vice President and Head of Operations Chief Engineer Romeo Piccio thanked the guests for supporting and attending the special event. 

To promote the programs of ICS to advance the Philippine maritime sector, Matt Gilbert also paid a courtesy visit to the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) and met Captain Alfredo Vidal, Deputy Administrator for Operations, and MARINA’s HR Key Officers. Together with Alexander Querol and Chief Engineer Romeo Piccio, Gilbert discussed the possibility of partnership between Magsaysay Learning and MARINA for the implementation of ICS courses to be part of MARINA’s development plan to enhance the capability of its officers and staff in the international shipping industry.
