AIEP Co-founder Paulo Magbuhos Guest Speaker at

On December 13, 2016, American Institute for English Proficiency co-founder, Paulo Valentino Magbuhos, or Vin as he is commonly called at AIEP, was invited by Chiang Kai Shek College to present to the business administration students the topic, “Challenges of being an Entrepreneur.”


In his presentation, Vin discussed capital and how and where to get the initial capital or funding when starting a business. Next, he talked about “agents,” the people who could help fuel one’s entrpreneurial success. These agents are your business partners, mentors, employees, and customers. Finally, he discussed the importance of having a niche, a product or service that differentiates you from the rest of the competition.

Vin co-founded AIEP, which opened its doors on January 21, 2007, with branches in Makati and Quezon City. Vin believes that “the bigger the risk, the bigger the return.” As a seasoned entrepreneur, Vin has faced numerous challenges, but has overcome many of them as AIEP is about to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The American Institute for English Proficiency can be a great resource motivational speakers woth topics ranging from career development, English proficiency, communication excellence, interview strategies, public speaking, entrepreneurship, confidence building, personality development, profesional development, team building, and more.

Every year, The American Institute celebrates Thanksgiving, as it is one of the most traditional and biggest holidays in the United States.  It is a time for family members to get together, be reunited, and enjoy each other’s company since most Americans are either working or live away from their families.  Here’s a bit of history of Thanksgiving, according to

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states.

We are having our Thanksgiving party at the rooftop of the American Institute for English Proficiency Quezon City branch, and we would like to invite our former and current students to join us.  We will be feasting, playing games, and just having a bonding moment with each other.  One of things you can expect for dinner is the centerpiece: oven-baked turkey.  It is delicious when paired when mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry, and stuffing.  We will have other delicious dishes like sausages and beef stew as well.
