Business innovator Sid Consunji of DMCI and other mavericks in the new Asian Dragon

Theirs was once a company dedicated solely to construction. Now, with Isidro “Sid” Consunji at the helm, D.M. Consunji Inc. has expanded into property development, power, mining, infrastructure, and many other businesses, all building from the company’s core competence. “We’re not really diversifying,” claims Consunji, who declares that “reinvention” is the key to their success. Read his interview with executive editor Apa Ongpin in the cover story of this month’s Asian Dragon, the business and lifestyle magazine for Filipino-Chinese movers and shakers.

Other mavericks to meet in this issue’s pages include Benjamin Luison of the hugely successful The Generics Pharmacy, who aims to make medicines affordable to all Filipinos; Josie Go of the durable fashion brand Karimadon; and Philippine Consul General in New York Mario Lopez de Leon, who’s out to woo a new generation of Fil-Am investors in the Philippines. Also meet world traveler Lilliane Cobiao, Dusit Thani GM Alex Willats, online investment guru Edward Lee, and Indian Ambassador Amit Dasgupta.

In this issue as well, corporate training consultant Olet Manalang writes an insightful piece on dealing with organizational transformation. Revisit the long history of cigars in the Philippines, meet corporate women who made a career veer into the beauty industry, check out the sexiest fashion featuring cut-out details, discover different ways to wear blue makeup, explore Perth in Australia, and see how to set a magical table. All these and more are in the latest issue of Asian Dragon magazine, available at selected magazine outlets nationwide.
