A Woman That Has Created Impact

Powerful and intelligent, Ces Rondario is an awe-inspiring woman.

“I want to make an impact. I want to make a difference. I want to change the world.” 

 

To create change and make a big impact on other people’s lives is something easier said than done. However, it only takes one special person—one determined, passionate individual—to spark that change and take concrete action. Ces Rondario, Founder of Impact Hub Manila, mentor, community builder, and overall amazing, powerful woman, has done exactly that; she continuously dedicates her life to help in creating social change, and making an impact on the lives of the people.

 

Ces has always believed in being brave enough to take the first step. In 2015, she has decided to take the first big step towards helping others spark the change that our country, the Philippines, desperately needs; she has co-founded Impact Hub Manila, connecting a wide network of changemakers and budding entrepreneurs across many Impact Hubs all over the world, to the aspiring changemakers and hopeful entrepreneurs of the Philippines.

 

Ces has the rare gift of being able to bring people together, and to promote the power of collaboration. She inspires everybody around her—all the women she encounters, the youth that aspire to follow in the path she’s paved, the communities she’s touched not only in the country but also across the world, and absolutely anyone else that is lucky enough to meet her in this lifetime—to be unafraid to dream big, to step outside of their comfort zone, and to power through, whatever it takes. 

 

Being connected to 15,000 hubbers all over the world, she routinely hears the words “Ces, I want to create an impact,” or “Ces, I want to change the world,” from aspiring entrepreneurs with big dreams. She responds by acknowledging such words, and challenging whoever has said them every time. She challenges them to get down to the nitty-gritty, and encourages them to start small and work through a series of innovative, actionable solutions. She also believes that the pressure of creating a big impact is the very thing that limits us. In 2018, she gave a TedTalk saying, “Could it be that this big dream of doing something big is what’s keeping us stable and stuck in the status quo?”

 

Ces firmly believes that every aspiring changemaker should start sparking change by accepting that they need not do something drastic and big to create an impact in the world. She believes that while working towards bigger goals and what is needed, in essence, is to celebrate the small wins and appreciate the small actions that actually are the building blocks that create big impact in different communities, the country, and the entire world. 

 

A true visionary and believer in the power of entrepreneurship to create true change and lasting impact in our country and the world, Ces Rondario will always and forever be remembered as the woman who is unafraid to take concrete actions on her words: “I want to make an impact. I want to make a difference. I want to change the world.”
