He explained in details the concepts and competencies that leader-communicators must practice and possess in order to effectively translate its objectives and gain strategic influence.

As a start, Lt. Col. Herrera showed a glimpse of what they do as public servants and partners in building peaceful communities in collaboration with other agencies, local government units, and non-government organizations in the province. In the course of his presentation, he also highlighted the mandate of President Duterte’s E.O. 70 Whole-of-Nation Approach to End Local Communist Armed Conflict.

On the other hand, Lt. Col. Herrera extended his deepest appreciation for the invitation. He handed copies of the Breaking Free book (a narration of actual accounts of young people’s fateful journeys who were recruited and once deceive by the CPP-NPA but were able to surrender and went back to the folds of the law) as a token of his unit’s appreciation to National Irrigation Administration in becoming their partner in fulfilling their mandate.
