Launch of Event Design Collective in the Philippines

Basel, Switzerland / Manila Philippines,  26 June 2017

With  successful partnerships in Spain, Germany, Canada and the United States now the Event Design Collective is delighted to announce the launch of  a new partnership in the Philippines.

Since 2014, Annaliza Laxamana, Managing Director and owner of LEAD Impact Asia Inc. has been an advocate and promoter of Event Design Thinking and bringing training opportunities to Manila in the Philippines. She is the very first CED – Certified Event Designer in Asia after she completed the Executive Program at San Diego State University in 2016.

In a fast changing landscape, now more than ever teams want to learn how to collaboratively create shared experiences. They want to have fun by consciously designing for behaviour change using proven methodologies. The Event Design Methodology using the #EventCanvas℠ brings teams in a state of play to design. A user recently described the #EventCanvas as “a super helpful analogue system to track the past, organise the present + plan for the future”.

According to the founders of the Event Design Collective, it’s now time to democratize design. We are driven to enable everyone to use this collaborative team approach to create events that consciously change our world in the desired direction of change.


Event Design Collective Philippines will be led by Annaliza Laxamana, CED together with the team at Event Design Collective.

As a serial entrepreneur she has a wealth of experience in the Design, Delivery and management of a large variety of events in multiple countries.

The launch of the licensed partner network will offer local partners the opportunity to offer Event Design Certification training in new languages, levels and geographies. As a result, trained facilitators using the Event Design using the #EventCanvas℠ methodology will become Licensees to use the method to train and consult future practitioners. Look out for upcoming training dates in your area.
