Gregory Stone

On Risk-proofing Businesses

In a fast-paced business climate, being able to anticipate and mitigate risks is a responsibility of every leader. No business is immune to these risks, and they can abound within and outside the organization. Greg Stone brings a mix of experience from military special operations and intelligence support in training some of the top multinational companies in the Philippines in risk management. In this interactive session, learn how to assess your company’s potential risks before they even arise, formulate strategies to counter any attack, and exude leadership when it matters the most.

Greg brings significant expertise and experience in the area of loss prevention and risk management for business and profitability concerns. He has an unrivaled foundation in security best practice and complex FMCG related investigations.

This experience is gained through diverse careers working with military special operations and  intelligence support,  as well as  global business leadership. Operating within theft prone environments in Asia and Africa, Greg has deployed a range of time tested and unique methodologies to limit product loss and increase overall profitability across a range of business sectors.

Greg’s experience includes over a decade as a senior executive within household name multinationals in business development, advisory and supply chain management roles. During this time, Greg has implemented numerous security and risk mitigation programs for entities with extensive local and global supply chains.

In today’s complex world, preventing losses is now becoming as important as generating profit. Like in chess, grand masters know that the secret in winning a game is in avoiding errors, while rookies try to win.

What is the ALPHA Program?

The ALPHA Program is a series of learning sessions featuring some of the most experienced and accomplished personalities across different fields. It combines in-class learning and mentorship, where enrolled fellows will not only learn theories and frameworks on their chosen subject matter, but also from the personal journeys and philosophies of their mentors.

Each class will only have 30-40 fellows, to encourage deeper dialogue and interaction.

How is it different from other seminars or masterclasses with the same subject matter?

The ALPHA Program is not your typical seminar or workshop. The focus is not on theories or textbook lectures, but more on learning from each mentor’s experience and worldviews on the subject matter, distilled into one session. We ask our mentors the question, if this will be the last class will teach, what would you like to impart?

But learning does not just happen from the top down. By keeping each class small, we encourage open conversations between the fellows and the mentors, as so much can be learned by building upon or challenging each other’s ideas. One of our goals for ALPHA is to start a community of leaders, doers, and lifelong learners, whose ties will last beyond the program.

What time commitment is required?

The highlight is the one-day face-to-face session with the mentor. Prior to that, we will be sending some preliminary reading materials a week in advance, to prime you for the session.

This 2020, we also launched our 1st Online Mentorship class. For online mentorship, the format is three 2-hour sessions, happening every 9 AM to 11AM (3 Saturdays). Homework will also be given during the week.

Can I join more than one class?

Yes, you can. Each class happens on a different day, so you’re more than welcome to join more than one. We also offer discounts (Php 3,000 off) , should you like to join two or more classes.

How do I join and how much is the investment?

Simply go to each mentor’s page, click APPLY NOW, and fill in your details. You will be receiving an email from your mentor, with 3 short questions that you need to answer. These questions are related to the subject matter, and will help the mentor get to know you better – this is important as we keep our classes small. Should we exceed the maximum required for each class, the mentors will select the participants joining the roster.

After that, you will receive an email notice regarding your application, including the next steps in confirming your slot.

Our early bird rate is at Php 9,500, while regular rate is at Php 14,500. Discounts are available for joining more than one class.
