MarkProf Godparents by Josiah Go


MarkProf ( is the only alumni facilitated, longest running, and free 8-day marketing training program for college students nationwide. Each year, close to 1,000 graduating student leaders with a minimum grade of 85 apply for 1 of only 25 slots. Classes start in October yearly, and are held weekly on Saturdays. MarkProfers are graded based on the quality of their questions asked, alongside a test given to find the best big ideas. All class standings are transparent to everyone based on forced ranking. Each individual is assigned a personal mentor, and each group a group mentor. Every year, over 100 marketing practitioners help as screeners, interviewers, judges, mentors, or speakers. The brand promise is to offer a dream team of speakers composed of CEOs and CMOs to engage with MarkProfers.

For provincial participants, Cebu Pacific Air is the official airline partner, providing equal opportunities to students from VisMin and faraway Luzon cities, ensuring that every Juan flies. We are grateful.

To date, some 337 people have graduated from the MarkProf intensive training program. I am proud to be co-founder and the founding President, as well as having served as 1st Chief Training Officer. At noon of Dec. 23, 2017, a fund drive was launched. Godparents donated P8,000 and as a token, will get invited to an exclusive dinner with MarkProf Alumni (scheduled on July 21, 2018). 154 practitioners answered the call to be Godparents, causing the organizers to extend by 3 more days due to the massive support that kept coming.

So big thanks to our new MarkProf Godparents for 2018! May you have a thousand-fold blessings!
