My thoughts regarding the office environment:
- SMALL TEAM - only composed of five (5) people in the office, including the admin.
- Means of communication in this office is through Skype
- The manager lives in the US and will be communicating with the team through Skype (the boss is Filipino)
- The manager occasionally goes here (around twice a year)

My thoughts regarding the Type of Work
- Data Gathering (Government Sites, World Bank, IMF, etc.)
- Paper work (Research Papers, Roadmaps, etc.)
- Power Point Presentations (Presented to clients through skype)

- Tholons Top 100 - our annual project where we gather data, analyze, and rank the top 100 best cities to outsource and publish them. We were recently featured on the news on which we mentioned that Manila became number two (2) on the list overtaking India's Delhi.

- International projects- currently, we're working on a roadmap for Guatemala's BPO Industry. We also do location analysis for known BPO players and recommend locations to them on where they could expand their services.

- We have local projects - recently closed a deal with Quezon City to provide skills assessment for the colleges in QC (Excluding known private colleges like Ateneo/UP). Essentially, this project's goal is to analyze the capabilities of QC's graduates to fit the BPO industry. We also have a pending deal (sent a proposal last month) with San Pedro.
