This year’s theme, #fwdPH, revolves around “love of country” and we’ve lined-up an impressive set of speakers who will share their insights on how we can nurture respect for, and deep pride in, our nation’s rich and diverse culture. Adding spice are some of our country’s best performers. Serving as host is the multi-talented entertainment personality and social media aficionado, Chuckie Dreyfus.
