#OneForMarino Aims to Ignite & Empower Filipino Seafarers


Ignite-Empower-Flourish Inc. (IEF), a world-class training and consulting company, committed to create programs designed to improve financial choices of Filipinos, recently created a campaign to resolve a silent yet rampant problem of the Filipino seafarers, coined by the company as Business Gambling.

#OneForMarino - Go Marino para sa Negosyo is a series of events that aims to ignite & empower Filipino seafarers & overseas Filipino workers so that they may flourish in business & investing. Their first event is happening on July 27 & 29 at the Bayview Park Hotel Manila, 9AM - 6PM. The event is a straight forward, relevant and non-boring discussion in understanding the language of business for seafarers. Registration is free, just go to https://www.facebook.com/oneformarino for more details.

"I'd like to commend IEF for this advocacy because ang tagal na pong andyan yung mga marino pero they feel neglected, but with IEF I think this is an opportunity for our seafarers to take care of their money." said Capt. Ronaldo SJ. Enrile, the current Vice Chairman of ANGKLA Partylist during the press conference of One for Marino at Sequoia Hotel.





Kristine Marcelo, a CPA is the CEO of IEF, Inc, along with her agile team, dedicated their career into doing an in depth research to find out the probable cause of the recurring financial rat-race-problem among the seafarers. Seafarers are champions of the Philippine economy and it’s contradicting that they end up attaining poor financial status upon their retirement.

After months of rigid immersion, focus group discussions, research and interview, IEF, Inc. finally found one factor and the team eventually termed it as Business Gambling. After noting the matter, IEF, Inc. immediately and carefully designed a potent campaign to help provide a societal solution against it, hence, #OneForMarino was brought to life.

One Strength for Social Good

#OneForMarino clearly defines business gambling as the seafarers’ impulsive and repetitive decision to invest in various businesses with minimum to completely insufficient knowledge and purely depending on chance or probability for return.

The campaign was named #OneForMarino, as this is a mission to collaborate with multiple organizations and sectors to create one strength for social good. IEF, Inc, believes that the success of the campaign will be greatly influenced by the support of other organizations, especially those from the Maritime industry.


Capt. Ronaldo SJ Enrile, the Vice Chairman of ANGKLA Partylist fully supports #OneForMarino.

The campaign will run from August 2018 to May 2019, with official Maritime launching to happen on July 27-28, 2019. The intention of this campaign is to saturate media platforms to reach out to as many seafarers and make them aware of the dangers, risks and solutions of business gambling.

The highlight of this campaign is to bring the FIRST EVER EXHIBIT + CONFERENCE to run 32 times during the campaign duration, aiming to reach over 15,000 participants. This Exhibit + Conference is expected to be interactive, fun and highly igniting.

The Exhibit + Conference will be held at Bayview Park Hotel Manila. Tickets will be available on partnering Maritime agencies to be posted and continuously updated on the company’s Facebook page and website (@OneForMarino and www.ief.ph)
