In jubilation and cheers, the parade of the teams took off, officially kicking off the 10th LTBC UAE. In line with Edmark’s culture, everyone bowed their heads in prayers, giving thanks for their safe travels and a familial bonds we all share in Edmark.
Before getting down to business as the Camp Director, Edmark Philippines’ Singing President, Mr. Joey Urquia serenaded the crowd with his latest song off his sold-out album, Finally. Known for his song-writing and melodic voice, Edmarkers treated Mr. Joey to a standing ovation before the LTBC Trainer, Coach Randy Esguerra was introduced. Synergizing work with play, Coach Randy brought participants through fun-filled and educational team-building games, revealing its lessons after each activity.
