Victorinox: Made Like A Leader, Made Like Francis Kong
“This is one of my favorites… especially that Francis Kong is a very, very talented person. His inspiring words strucked me and continue to strikes everyone else. This was published December 2005, a few wks after my wedding. Mr. Kong, I salute you. =)”
The Victorinox Travel Gear team recently met with Francis J. Kong over a refreshing snack and a glass of Iced Tea, what he grinningly calls, “The National Drink.” With our short talk, we discovered a lot about Francis like work, family and his passion for Victorinox Travel Gear.
Currently, Francis J. Kong is the President and CEO of Funworks Incorporated, Philippine franchisee for Mad Science, the world’s number 1 Science educational-entertainment for kids. He is also the President of Business Matters Values Formation, a non-stock, non-profit organization geared towards instilling values and good business practices in the work place and a President of Success Options Publishing Company. Mr. Kong currently sits as a member of the Board of Directors of the Society of Educators for a Better Philippines under the auspices of the Bato-Balani foundation which provides quality training for educators throughout the Philippines.
A noted writer, author, broadcaster and a much sought after speaker. An effective motivational and inspirational speaker, Francis Kong, above anything else, is an educator and an inspirational speaker. He has given numerous Values Seminars to the country’s top business corporations as well as educational institutions. He has been invited as a featured speaker in major business conventions and conferences both here and abroad.
As a frequent traveler, Francis confesses his passion for Victorinox Travel Gear. He disclosed how he came to know Victorinox travel gear. “I have known Victorinox even before The Travel Club exclusively distributed it here in the country. I have this friend abroad who was actually holding on to his bag as his priced possession. What immediately caught me was the cross shield strategically and elegantly placed in a bag.”
“Since then, I keep looking for the same kind of bag until I spearheaded a leadership seminar with Primer Group of Companies and secretly divulged Victorinox bags. This conversation gave Jimmy Thai an idea to distribute one in the Philippines. Several months later, I was surprised to see Victorinox bags at The Travel Club.” Kong added.
Just like Kong, Victorinox stands out with elegance and style. It exudes quality and leadership among all brands worldwide. Francis confessed that Victorinox, unlike other bags, guarantees reliable service. Victorinox provides practical and high quality products at the best value. It uses innovation to satisfy the customers’ needs. Its style captures Francis’ elegant taste and nomadic lifestyle.
One thing that Kong initially liked about Victorinox is the cross shield, which symbolizes quality and versatility.
