Financial wellness talk – Sun Life Advisors on the roll!

The Sun Life Advisors’ booth for Financial Wellness talk at Astoria Plaza on August 16, 2018 as part of Astoria Plaza’s Quarterly Employee Fellowship


The Dreamer Team of Royal Poinciana Branch of Sun Life Financial had the privilege to be invited to talk about Financial Wellness at Astoria Plaza in Ortigas Center Business District last August 15, 2018. Our team, headed by our Unit Manager Garry De Castro, put up a Sun Life booth where attendees could drop by, register for free financial consultation, or directly approach the advisors for questions regarding investments, insurance, and more!

It was a bright sunny afternoon, the employees of Astoria Plaza slowly flock the conference room one-by-one. This is their quarterly fellowship, where employees are rewarded for a job-well done, win prizes through raffle, and sit down for free wellness talks on various topics. This time, there will be a talk about financial wellness and family planning, two topics which are vital in our lives. I was curious at first as an outsider how this event will flow. Filipinos are busy with their lives and mostly have no luxury of time to research on these things. So having their management taking the initiative to have this sort of a free seminar is a big thing. And hey, as per my own observation, we seldom hear about companies which are having this kind of events for their employees’ welfare.

The crowd is a mix of different generations, however, most of them are millenials. Not sure if it’s compulsory to attend though. After a quick opening remarks and video presentation of their company and before Sir Garry was introduced, one of the speakers jokingly shared that she asked her husband to get life insurance because “para pag nawala sya, di ako mahihirapan”, the crowd laughed. It was funny but at the same time true. It’s not bad, right?

Sir Garry started with the question “Sino gusto maging milyonaryo?”, everybody raised their hands. Of course, all of us wanted to become one and enjoy living the fruits of our harvest. But do we really deserve it? Are our actions in accordance with our goals?
