Nic was an average student who was usually bullied and teased during his primary and secondary years of school because of his obesity and being an Igorot. But this gentleman was raised in the Ibaloi tribe of culture and community. At present, Nicanor Calado Satur Jr. takes pride in his ability to foster the very sense of collectivism that he loved growing up. He wore a lot of hats and took on many roles in every industry imaginable to reach his current level of success. While still cultivating his own personal needs and wants, it’s his drive and dedication to serve the Filipino people.
Being part of the minority, it is always Nic’s prerogative to make sure that his career would bring honor to the Igorot tribe. One of his ways to attain this success is to put high value in his education. In 2007, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration at the University of the Cordilleras and went straight ahead to pursue his graduate studies in the same university. By 2010, he finished his Masters in Business Administration.
Nic’s friends would always remark on how he’s a natural leader. His critical thinking and decision-making put him ahead in certain circumstances. His first stint at a career came when he was still in his first year of college, back in 2004. Nic worked as a freelance events organizer covering anything from Pageants, student seminars, concerts, to product launching events. Soon, he realized that being a freelance events organizer was something that he is excellent at. He co-founded an events company that specializes in conducting workshops and training for the corporate and the academia.
While he was excellent at his management and organization skills, Nic wanted more. When he became a member of the faculty in Colegio De San Juan De Letran – Calamba, he found his true passion for teaching.
Armed with 10 years of entrepreneurial experience and six years in academia, Nic wanted to do something that would combine all of his career approaches and at the same time, go back to the roots of his advocacies. Thus he joined JCI Makati.
He is an academician by heart, a Christian by acts and a humble civic-oriented individual who enjoys JCI projects and empowering young leaders of tomorrow. As the organization’s Local Training Director, he has extensive plans for 2021.
