The First Pacific Leadership Academy presents “The Musicality of Faith”

In this day and age of extreme work quantification, where your every move can be tabulated and distilled as a neat column of numbers on a spreadsheet, it’s very easy to lose yourself to the mind-numbing monotony of the daily grind. In the race to make the top of the Fortune 500 list, many companies strip the workplace down to the basics, reducing their employees to worker drones who clock in and out with nothing to distinguish one from the other but the rate of their deliverables.
But there’s a better way to do run a business without sacrificing your employees’ individuality and happiness at the altar of workplace efficiency.

On February 27, the First Pacific Leadership Academy (FPLA), the preferred leadership company of the MVP Group, has invited several thought leaders to discuss how the merging of spirituality and music in the workplace can create an environment that is both uplifting and effective.

In FPLA’s first Executive Talk of the year 2015, titled “The Musicality of Faith,”several of the country’s leading personalities in religion and the music industry gather to talk about how to better invigorate a workplace. Included among the guest speakers are Fr. Benildus Maramba, Jim Paredes, Joey Ayala, Noel Cabangon, and the KoroI lustrado singers. For an afternoon of religious insight (and the odd musical performance or two), this esteemed group of luminaries in music and religion will lead the in-depth conversation regarding humanistic values that music and spirituality can lend to a business establishment.



Many studies have been launched to uncover just how music significantly increases workplace efficiency. Whether this is due to the music’s tendency to brighten up a dreary mood or tothe psychological effects of some hidden musical undercurrent is still up for debate, but the fact remains that music has proven itself to be an invaluable tool for an efficient—and happy—work environment.


In the interests of optimizing the workplace, music’s function as “a powerful gateway to connect us to our spiritual nature,” as described by Grammy-nominated songwriter and social entrepreneur Frank Fitzpatrick described, opens up avenues to further improve the spiritual front. According to author and educator Corinne McLaughlin, there are numerous benefits one can reap from an ethical and spiritual workplace, such as “increased productivity and profitability, as well as employee retention, customer loyalty, and brand reputation.”

Thus, the need for “The Musicality of Faith,” where the Executive Talks guest speakers, who are each powerful influencers in their own right, will discuss just what music and spirituality can bring to the conference table, and how it can help resolve real life situations that arise at the office. FPLA’s Executive Talks, historically well-attended by professionals from a wide range of industries, promise a lively discussion about the power and spirituality of music.

This Executive Talk is scheduled for 2:00-5:00pm on February 27. It will be held within the First Pacific Leadership Academy, on Km. 27 Sumulong Highway, Antipolo City, Rizal. To reserve tickets or to learn more about the Executive Talks, call 696-3051 or visit
