INTRASPEC MANAGEMENT CONSULTANCY: 20 Years of Excellence in Training
Twenty years. It’s heartwarming to note that my Consultancy and Training Outfit, the INTRASPEC Management Consultancy has reached this far.
Founded in 1995 with my very dear friend Daisy de Dios who is now with our Lord. We named the company HUMANSPECS, Co. and was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as a “Partnership” Business. Both of us were working then, but we were able to haggle the demands of the business during weekends. We initially started HUMANSPECS with Trainings, Human Resource (HR) Management Consultancy and Psychological Testing as our main offerings.

As we move on, we had to employ the services of other HR Experts as Associate members, doing some projects which we cannot pay heed because we were just part time consultants. Honestly, I cannot recall anymore the exact number of the training projects we did before. What I can recall vividly were the fun we had in each project we do together, the clashing of ideas especially when we do the conceptual frameworks in each of our training projects. Both of us had strong personalities, but we easily dealt any misunderstanding because of our strong foundation as friends. I also recall sleepless nights we’ve spent making out our visual aids as poer point and LCD projectors were not yet in during those times. I’d taken a lot from Daisy as she was senior to me, specifically when it comes to age and corporate experience. I’m sure from heaven she is very happy seeing what happened to what we have started.

Later, Daisy moved to Manila as she was offered a very good job in Sales and Marketing. She was made to cover the Asian Region. That was the time when I went solo as a consultant. But our physical separation, didn’t affect the business. In fact, while in Manila she was able to connect me with some companies which became my client too.
Being alone in the business had constantly received its two positions: Difficult, because it’s nice to have someone you can brainstorm with whenever you have a big project, but at the same time easy when it comes to decision-making.
Cebu City. Teambuilding by INTRASPEC
When 2000’s came business opportunities started to paddle. The business landscape change and more big companies started to enlist INTRASPEC’s services. I decided to rebrand the company, naming it this time INTRASPEC. INTRASPEC is an acronym for IN- Integrity, TRA– Training and SPECS – Specialist. The name was inspired by the verse in the Bible from the book of Isaiah 61:3b,”and they shall be called oaks of Integrity, planted by the Lord to show His glory…” At that time I was taking up my Masters in Biblical Studies, and in one of my deep reflections, this verse popped in my mind. This verse has always been a consideration each time we would design a training program for INTRASPEC. Don’t get me wrong our trainings were never preachy. But the values that we carry in our company is always anchored on Integrity.

Today, INTRASPEC is already serving various companies nationwide. We also had several associate consultants to attend to various projects whenever the schedules would come simultaneously. I recalled, I was in Cebu together with 4 other INTRASPEC Trainers doing a series of trainings, while several others were in Luzon , Davao , Iloilo and Bacolod.

Indeed , INTRASPEC had gone a long way. And this is so because of the trust and confidence our clients gave us. Let me take this opportunity to thank our clients and associates who had worked and still working with me at INTRASPEC. INTRASPEC will never reach its 20th year if not for all of you.TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
