Equip and Engage Positive Leaders!

Welcome to jefmenguin.com! I am happy and honoured to have you here.

This website is my digital home. I created this because I believe many of my experiences and ideas can help leaders who intend to create a better world. We are born leaders. And leaders deserve the best that the world has to offer. Leaders do not have to wait for heroes who will save us.

You and I are leaders and we can start a better world, a positive revolution.

I dream that one day many of us celebrate what’s right with the world. A world where ordinary people like me will exhaust all our powers to make better change for ourselves and our children. A world where everyone has kusang-palo (initiative) and malasakit (concerns for other).

I dream of leaders, here in the Philippines and everywhere, who inspire and enable the best in us.

This website will help you find ways to engage positive leaders at all levels.

My mission is to wake up the sleeping positive leaders in us. I will sell to you the greatness in you; that person who has the enormous but untapped powers to change the world. We ought to become better persons, better leaders everyday.

I will show you how to uncover the unexplored and the underrated leader in you. I will help you discover your unused talents. I will encourage you to achieve your dreams and to share with you how to redesign your life. I will help you create a new destiny — a better world which you and I care about.

And everyday, through my bootcamps, masterclasses, seminars, blogs, podcasts, newsletters, and conversations with you — I will accomplish that mission.

If it is your first time here, I know that all the information in this website can be overwhelming. It took me many months to create them. So, I will guide you to find some of the very best resources to get you started.

Keynote Speaker

As a keynote speaker, Jef Menguin inspires organizational leaders to encourage positive leadership -- and he shows how leaders at all levels can become positive leaders.

As a keynote speaker, he reminds you of your ability to focus on strengths and make the most of the assets and talents of your people. You can wake up the transformational leader in you.

"It was in 1989,  I was still in high school, when I first delivered a speech to more than 3000 people. I had no idea how to deliver a great speech. I only had a personal story to tell and I shared it wholeheartedly. Many months after I delivered my first speech, I found that people who heard the first message shared it to others who requested me to tell them my stories again and again."

Find out how he became a speaker -- and how you can bring him to your organization.
