Hub News: Google My Business at DTI

Óne of Swito’s long-running partner is Google Business Group. Since the last quarter of 2014, Swito’s lead, Glorypearl Dy, has served as manager for the community, along with its comanagers, Regina Evangelista of Dreamworks, Gay Viray of MyOutdesk, and the late, Dorothy Falcon, head of Leet Uni and incoming lead of GDG Davao.

Being part of Google Business Group Davao has been a pleasure for Swito. Last October 20, 2018, the community harnessed its partnership with the government by serving as side-activity for the Livex Innovation Summit 2018. The event called Google My Business was headed by Dorothy Falcon. Attended by over 40 participants coming from different small and medium enterprises, Google My Business, held in DTI Davao, verified over 40 businesses through sole Davao GMB Verifier, Marben Picar, and even introduced these businesses to Gsuite through event sponsor, itGenius, by Vince Saipuden.  The team-up of Dorothy and Regina allowed non-techy attendees to explore the benefits of GMB especially on proper keywording and catchy profile descriptions. Truly very inspiring women that us Swito really look up to.
