Last June 28, 2016, three fellows of the Asian Institute of Management TeaM Energy Center for Bridging Leadership (AIMTEC) engaged with development managers enrolled in the 27th class of the Master in Development Management (MDM) degree program of the AIM Stephen Zuellig School for Development Management (ZSDM). 
Department of Education (DepEd) Region IV-B Director Lorna Dig-Dino opened the series of live case discussions. Her presentation focused on the application of the Bridging Leadership Framework in regional school-based management systems to improve student performance. She shared her stakeholder engagements and social innovations in public schools in Regions II, IV-A, and IV-B since her fellowship with the Center under the second cohort of the Bridging Leadership Fellowship Program (BLFP).
Meanwhile, Vice Mayor Nacianceno “Jun” Pacalioga of Dumingag, Zamboanga del Sur discussed the local governance social innovations he developed with his stakeholders to eradicate poverty and promote sustainable organic agriculture in his municipality. He emphasized the value of collective leadership in establishing an equitable and sustainable local economy in Dumingag, building trust among his constituents, and installing the appropriate machineries for responsive development programs. He concretized his application of Bridging Leadership in Dumingag through his Organic Farming School change project launched under the Mindanao Bridging Leaders Program (MBLP) of the Center.

Lastly, Mayor Oscar Moreno of Cagayan de Oro City shared his change project in Sitio Lantad, Misamis Oriental under the MBLP. In his discussion, he stressed the role of multi-stakeholder collaborations in transforming the physical landscape of Sitio Lantad to provide his constituents access to basic services, sustainable livelihoods, and long-standing peace. The success of his change project in Sitio Lantad prompted him to apply Bridging Leadership in over nineteen other villages in Misamis Oriental. Now as Mayor of Cagayan de Oro City, he applied the Bridging Leadership Framework in formulating his eight-point agenda for the city.
