So check it out, there’s this event called BusinessNext 2023 that went down in Cebu City, and let me tell you, it made some serious waves. Now, what’s cool about this event is that it’s all about the collaboration between business and artificial intelligence (AI). They’re exploring the possibilities, man.
This BusinessNext Forum is all about learning business from business, man. It’s not just about learning stuff to help businesses thrive in this ever-changing landscape, but also staying ahead of the game and meeting the demands of the industry, you know?

Now, this event brought together some heavy hitters. We’re talking about Accenture Philippines and the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry. They teamed up to make this event happen, and let me tell you, it was a gathering of some top-notch business leaders, students studying business, and even some academe folks. It was a diverse audience for sure.
Now, let’s get into the meat and potatoes of this event. They were diving deep into the world of artificial intelligence and how it’s impacting customer engagement. This guy, Mr. Arvin Yason, the Managing Director and Innovation Lead of Accenture, he knows his stuff. He was talking about real-world applications and solutions, man.
But they didn’t stop there, oh no. They also talked about the role of AI in data mining and big data analytics. It’s all about extracting those valuable insights from massive data sets, you know what I mean?
“The adoption of AI in the business landscape is something to get excited about, man. But we gotta use it ethically and with a purpose, you know? We gotta empathize with the needs of consumers and let it inspire us to create, to invent,” said Mr. Arvin Yason, dropping some serious knowledge bombs.
And here’s what’s really cool, man. The Cebu Chamber of Commerce fully backed this event. They were all about extending knowledge and making a positive impact on the community. They wanted to show how AI can be a tool for development, how it can make things better for everyone. Mr. Benedict Que, VP for Business Development at the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said, “We gotta maximize the potential of the tools we have, man. We gotta use them to make society better.”
But here’s the thing, man.
