High10 to 51Talk the 10th Anniversary Kick-Off | Ingrid Nieto HOSTS

2021 marks the 10th anniversary of 51Talk, the company I have been with for over a year. In March this year, the anniversary kick-off and strategic conference was held in Beijing, China where our leaders recounted the company’s humble beginnings, talked about the milestones, wins, risks and things they did that made 51Talk what it is today–the leading online English education platform with over 30,000 Filipino teachers with 250,000 young Chinese learners.

Here in the Philippines, we started our local hurrah for the 10th year through a virtual event on our Youtube channel. My colleague Shin and I were tapped to host the kick-off along with the platform’s talented teacher-influencers.

There’s definitely more to look forward to this 2021 as we hold more celebratory events in honor of our 10th year. 51Talk was featured heavily in the news last year as more and more individuals sought an alternative livelihood source that is safe, sustainable and can be done from home. While working from home became widely accepted last year due to the pandemic, 51Talk online English teachers have been teaching and earning from home way before #WorkFromHome and #OnlineClasses became the norm.

51Talk is always looking for teachers to join the platform. If you are a college graduate of any course, willing to learn and teach young learners, have up-to-spec computer equipment and a sturdy, wired internet connection, then you might want to look into this opportunity. You can check out the full qualifications and requirements, as well as the application process by visiting our website: www.51talk.ph.

Hosting Sun Life Sun Talks featuring Inigo Pascual

I had the wonderful privilege of hosting this short virtual talk show for Sun Life Philippines. Inigo Pascual is one of Sun Life’s young brand ambassadors who talked about his spending and saving lifestyle, as well as the Adulting Starter Pack. Sun Life aims to make financial management and life insurance less intimidating, specially for the younger ones, to encourage them to start good money habits and make the most of the time they have to build wealth.

Yellow Tomorrow Show ft. Benedict Cua | Online Host – Ingrid Nieto

The Yellow Tomorrow Show is an online show that we launched in the middle of the pandemic as a means to share the good news about 51Talk and keep our home-based online English teachers engaged through online fun, special guests, and interactive games. In the first episode, we had Nelli Samson and Louie Wells as our teacher guests who shared stories of their 51Talk life. Teacher Nelli has been with the platform for 7 years and this has helped her support her family, while Teacher Louie is a stay-at-home dad who’s made big investments with his earnings from 51Talk. To provide entertainment, social media star Benedict Cua joined in for a short chat and to perform some songs.

 

The Yellow Tomorrow Show goes live on the 51Talk page on Thursdays at 9pm.

Hosting for Jed and Halee at the UP Bahay ng Alumni

It’s always good to witness a friend’s milestones specially when you hear their stories of waiting, hoping and finally finding someone that makes their heart complete. Halee and I have served in the GCF Youth Ministry for a few years and we also get to lead worship together from time to time. In the recent year, we saw how her relationship with her boyfriend Jed progressed to their being engaged. It was wonderful. We were so happy for Halee.

After about a year of planning, they finally tied the knot and got me to host their special day. Here’s the vlog of their wedding reception held at the UP Bahay ng Alumni.
