In pursuing this support, data shows that parents don’t rely on just one information source to get what they need or want to find out. They seek helpful validation from others to confirm what they know or want to achieve. These primarily include trained experts like their doctors or healthcare professionals, as well as other experienced parents from their circle of family and friends. Furthermore, the data also shows that in today’s world, they heavily consult online sources for their much-needed validation and information.

For parents well into their pregnancy, ParenTeam®’s article on understanding cravings or “paglilihi” could prove helpful, especially during the first trimester.

Parents will find that ParenTeam®’s content is relevant and practical. For example, those looking for help and advice regarding healthcare after giving birth will discover that the platform’s feature piece about mommy on recovery comes packed with thoughtful and insightful ideas. It also has sensible articles on what to do if one’s baby always says “no” and how to read a child’s hunger and fullness cues. 

For parents with active young ones, ParenTeam® has an intriguing piece about handling a picky toddler. For those with kids starting preschool, ParenTeam® has informative articles on the three growth nutrients parents must know and the difference between probiotics and prebiotics when it comes to tummy health.

Moreover, the ParenTeam® platform also provides helpful tools that aid parents across their parenting milestones.

For parents trying to conceive, ParenTeam®’s online Ovulation Calendar tool can help determine which days are most likely to have the desired result based on menstrual periods.

Complementing these finder tools is a Nutrition Checker, developed by experts to help parents calculate their child’s daily nutrient intake, identify any dietary needs, and provide recommendations on adjusting their daily diet if necessary.

Through these, parents and those who play active parent roles within their families will discover that ParenTeam® can be an ally. It will lend a capable helping hand every step of the way as a supportive space that offers expert-backed guidance and assurance – carefully providing them with the knowledge they require and the answers they seek for whichever parenting stage they’re in.

By registering to participate, they can learn from experts, share their findings, and grow in knowledge with other co-parents. Plus, they can enjoy exciting and exclusive benefits as members of the ParenTeam® family.

SWAY, an influencer marketing arm focusing on influencers and their subcultures

In today's digital landscape where understanding cultural contexts reigns supreme, one agency is redefining the concept of influence. SWAY by HAVAS Red digs deep into the nuances of subcultures, considering their significance in contemporary marketing strategies.

Unlike traditional methods that rely solely on metrics like followers, reach, impressions, likes, and engagements, SWAY by HAVAS Red emphasizes authentic connections within smaller, more defined niche communities that represent subcultures.

By understanding the language of diverse subcultures, SWAY by HAVAS Red provides brands a more genuine and meaningful way to engage with their audiences. It prioritizes targeted, but more relevant, communication that brings real engagement and builds brand loyalty within specific communities.

“Subculture-focused influencer marketing represents a significant shift in marketing. Previously reliant on traditional paid celebrity endorsements, we now harness the power of focused collectives,” said Jos Ortega, CEO of Havas Ortega and General Manager of HAVAS Red Philippines. “Influencers have become trusted leaders and catalysts for change. By curating collaborative campaigns that align with their core values and those of the subcultures they influence, we foster deeper engagement and brand loyalty, all while respecting the unique interests of these passionate communities.”

Jos Ortega, CEO of Havas Ortega and General Manager of HAVAS Red Philippines

"We are redefining influencer marketing in the Philippines," added Dayniel Garcia, Head of SWAY by HAVAS Red Philippines. "The emergence of subcultures signaled the need to analyze and further explore the cultural context. Fortunately, we have proprietary strategic and measurement tools that inspire fresh approaches that deliver results."

At the heart of SWAY's approach is HAVAS Ortega’s planning philosophy called Mx (Meaningful Experience) that is built on the confluence of the three C's — Connection, Context, and Content — facilitating the delivery of the right message, in the right format, to the right audience at the opportune moment when they are receptive to messages and open to persuasion.

Dayniel Garcia, Head of SWAY by HAVAS Red Philippines

In essence, SWAY by HAVAS Red Philippines redefines influencer marketing by championing a subculture-focused approach. In a world dominated by superficial metrics, SWAY by HAVAS Red sends a clear message that measurable, meaningful connections are the cornerstone of lasting impact.

Keeping it Together with Converge Vision


Dux Carvajal, a photographer, family man and Converge FiberX subscriber from Quezon City.

For photographers, the world is their creative backyard because they go wherever their subject takes them. They leave home and set foot towards the known (and the unknown) in their pursuit of capturing the big, defining moments. For family man Dux Carvajal, this jet setting lifestyle is a balancing act of seeing the world but keeping things grounded at home. Thankfully, a strong, stable internet connection by Converge keeps him connected to his family wherever he is and affords his family the digital means to live, work, and play while he’s away.

“Every other week there’s an event for my major client, which is often in Bangkok, then one week back here in the Philippines, then Qatar, back to Bangkok, then maybe Singapore. I’ve been a photographer for close to 15 years now. The main thing I shoot is sports, mostly mixed martial arts and that gives me the opportunity to travel around different countries every other week. I’m very blessed to be able to do this for a living,” says Dux, giving a glimpse of the lifestyle he’s taken on as a sports photographer.

“Being a sports photographer is an incredible job because you get to capture history. You get to capture the moments and the emotions. You are making history through your images,” he adds.

As if that’s not enough, he manages his own events company which offers photography as a logical accompaniment to the services of the company. This suite of services is an expansion of his skills in public relations, where he and his wife both started out.

“I started my career doing PR for a sports channel where I was able to travel with a sports company and experienced their events. It got me thinking maybe I could do that locally. I partnered with some of my friends and started an events company. Our first clients, who are actually still our clients today, are mostly international ones so business has been good,” he explained.

In addition to a stable business and a job bringing him to different corners of the world, Dux has been able to build a happy little nest too with his wife and three kids in Quezon City.

Dux is subscribed to the FiberX 2500 of Converge, giving him equal upload and download speeds, so he can experience uninterrupted internet access while streaming movies, downloading large files, and even playing online games.

When he’s not out shooting for mounting an event, he’s at home enjoying quality time watching streaming channels or local content via Vision, the all-in-one entertainment box offered by Converge in partnership with affiliate cable company, Pacific KabelNet. Vision is a value-added service for Converge subscribers, providing access to a broader selection of local and international television channels for a monthly fee.

“For us, the main benefit of Vision is, it converted our non-smart TV to a smart tv. It’s a plug and play device and once it’s been set up, all the channels are there. And the TV is suddenly a smart tv, you get your Disney Plus, Spotify, YouTube and browsing through the TV channels content you get a lot of content and there’s BlastTV too.”

The ‘Vision Xperience Box’ by Converge offers 65 local and international TV channels for an additional P99 per month on top of the monthly plan, or P 299 a month for 82 channels. This box includes Kapamilya channels as well as international news and entertainment channels like HBO, Cinemax, USA Today, and many more.

Aside from these channels, subscribers have quick, one-click access to Google apps, online games, and OTT apps like HBO Go, Amazon Prime, YouTube, and Spotify.

“There’s content for everyone: my daughters are always on Disney+ for the Disney princesses, my son watches science shows, my wife is a big K-drama fan, and for me, it’s mostly the sports channels,” he shares. 

Vision is a value-added service that gives Converge subscribers access to a wider selection of local and international television channels. It is an all-in-one entertainment box offered by Converge in partnership with affiliate cable company, Pacific KabelNet. 

With the successive speed boosts the plans have undergone since 2016, subscribers can all the more take advantage of their speeds, using their connection for gaming and work at the same time. This is yet another benefit Dux enjoys with his Converge connection, as he sends over hefty image files to his clients abroad.

“Before, that was my worry. It’s embarrassing for the clients, you’re just downloading a 10Mb file, and yet, it’s taking too long. My clients are abroad, so they’re used to lightning-fast speeds. They can’t understand what’s taking me so long. But because of the speeds that we get through Converge, I’m very confident to now say, ‘Hey, I can transfer these files right away.’ The work gets done quickly, even the workflow as well,” he ended.

Dux is subscribed to the FiberX 2500 of Converge, giving him equal upload and download speeds, so he can experience uninterrupted internet access while streaming movies, downloading large files, and even playing online games.
