my mission.

achieve something great.

Ramon Manuel Nisperos or RM Nisperos truly exemplifies the line “Service to Humanity is the Best Work of Life” since this is perfectly aligned with his endeavors, which he strives to accomplish in order to attain his personal goal to “Achieve Something Great.”

RM seeks to use his business knowledge gained from his undergraduate and postgraduate courses in order to teach and guide fellow Filipinos in setting up and succeeding in their own entrepreneurial projects. He does this by teaching in a distance-learning educational institution to reach out to those who have physical and logistical difficulties in accessing education, as well as with his personal website, which teaches people about business strategies.

In addition, RM has co-authored a published book that guides startups in web-based businesses. For RM, the ideal society would be that we must always pay it forward, that we must help in the upliftment of our fellow men, and to guide the next generation to succeed or even surpass us. Even with a promising corporate job, happy family, and thriving consultancy career, Ramon Manuel still allots a majority of his time to teaching and guiding others through the methods previously mentioned.

This fact alone is a personification that “Service to Humanity is the Best Work of Life.”

Excerpts from TOYM nomination.

what i seek.

the lieutenant you wish you had.

I believe every one of us has an amazing capacity to achieve something great. If only we had someone by our side, watching our backs and helping us get things we want to get done. My name is Ramon Manuel T. Nisperos, and I’m the lieutenant every general wishes they have.​

​A huge key to my success is my passionate and results-driven pursuit of wisdom, the knack for building things and helping people succeed. Over the years, my warm and cool ability to build systems, provide strategic insights and advocate for innovation have become better and better. ​

​The perceptive and detailed leadership I gained over the years shaped me into a productive and skilled yet discerning and considerate professional. ​

If you need a lieutenant to build something great, I’m up for the challenge. I am looking for an opportunity that will push me to get even better. All that I learned, all that I can contribute and all that I will continue to learn goes to your movement – an institution whose vision inspires me.

my story.

thinking big. starting small. acting fast.

On March 17, 1957, around 1 AM, the late President Ramon Magsaysay, who was then called the “president of the masses,” was abruptly killed in a plane crash. Fast forward 27 years later, a young boy was born on the same date at University Health Service in UP Los Baños. His parents decidedly named him after the late President.

RM Nisperos didn’t disappoint. Although he spent most of his time playing in the streets, which made his parents mad, RM Nisperos stepped up when it mattered the most. He ranked 81 on the University of the Philippines Rural High School (UPRHS) entrance exam. In his four years in UPRHS, RM Nisperos got the best foundation in academics and, at the same time, started to learn how to do things in a rockstar way.

RM Nisperos then pursued a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the University of the Philippines Los Baños. Without forgetting the value of education, RM Nisperos continued his partying ways during his college days. RM Nisperos learned to do different things at once, seemingly clamoring for chaos in his life. From partying, studying, and singing his heart out all night, RM Nisperos enjoyed every bit of turmoil he infused in his life. Though it took RM Nisperos more years to finish his 4-year course, RM Nisperos compensated it with street smarts that no one can learn from a traditional four-cornered room. RM Nisperos made his outside world his extended classroom, which gained him valuable experiences that made him what he is now.

Despite finishing his B.S. Economics Degree at the University of the Philippines, Los Baños, RM Nisperos felt that he could still do better in the academe. While RM Nisperos was working in a BPO company, he took up Personal Entrepreneurial Development (PED), New Enterprise Planning (NEP), and Introduction to E-Commerce (eCom) at the University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU), where he finished with high distinctions. Still unsatisfied, RM Nisperos also took a Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Course from the Institute of Sigma Learning Pvt Ltd (ISL), an online course taught in India. RM Nisperos graduated with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) Degree in 2015 from the Cesar E. A. Virata School of Business, University of the Philippines Diliman. He earned units for a 2nd degree B.S. E-Commerce from the Asian Institute of E-Commerce, where he became a Certified E-Commerce Entrepreneur, Certified E-Commerce Specialist, and E-Commerce Professional.

RM Nisperos was invited by the Faculty of Management and Development Studies (FMDS) of the UPOU to become an instructor. An entrepreneur at heart, RM Nisperos accepted the challenge to reinforce others’ entrepreneurial aspirations, and now, RM Nisperos is an instructor for online-taught courses in UPOU. He previously taught as the assistant course coordinator for Personal Entrepreneurial Development and New Enterprise Planning Certification Course. He is now the Course Coordinator for Introduction to E-Commerce and New Enterprise Planning Courses. He is currently the Senior Lecturer for the Master in Public Management also at the University of the Philippines Open University, Faculty in Management and Development Studies. He authored references for the Introduction to E-Commerce and New Enterprise Planning courses. Currently, RM wrote the new Digital Marketing Certification Course to be taught the UPOU.

R.M. occasionally lectures on New Enterprise Planning & Personal Entrepreneurial Development and Electronic Commerce Learning Sessions either through face-to-face means at the University of the Philippines Open University Campus or via Webinars. Recordings are available on his personal Youtube Channel RM Nisperos.  He extended his expertise learned by conducting training and workshops outside the University. Most notable are the training and workshops for the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Negosyo Center Business Counsellors, Development Academy of the Philippines. Department of Agriculture, USAID RESPOND Project, University of Negros Occidental Recoletos, and Certified E-Commerce Specialist Programs.

In 2015, RM Nisperos co-authored Cyberpreneur Philippines: Online Business Start-Up Guide. Twenty-two experts in the Philippines on business contributed to this best book on profession award at the 35th National Book Awards by the Philippine Government. In 2020, his book E-Commerce Entrepreneurship received a Certificate of Copyright Registration from the Intellectual Property Office of the Phillippines. 

RM Nisperos is a full-time Business Intelligence and Marketing Head at Air Materiel Wing Savings and Loan Association Inc., responsible for the company’s strategy, research, and marketing. He facilitated Strategic Planning workshops, Operations Planning workshops, and other various workshops. RM Nisperos never ceases to pursue his entrepreneurial passions. In his current day job, RM Nisperos devotedly exemplifies intrapreneurial attitude, improving the business and leveraging on opportunities through innovations.

On the side, RM Nisperos tirelessly establishes his businesses as a consultant/trainer and a cyberpreneur. Previously, he had prior short-term entrepreneurial stints in trade fairs. Armed with both experiences from the MBA classroom, E-Commerce Certifications, and practical knowledge from the real world, he is the founder of various businesses. RM is a founder and proprietor of Piersson Strategic Management Services, where he designs training courses on business management, effective communications, data analysis and data visualization. RM is a co-owner of Tiara Aesthetic Dentistry, a cosmetic and orthodontic dental clinic in Metro Manila. RM is the proprietor of RMNisperos Transport Services – a transportation business servicing commuters in Metro Manila

While there are successful businesses that RM Nisperos owns, numerous failures lead to successes. His startup EntrepLounge, an E-Learning Platform where he conducts webinars and podcasts and hosts free online courses,  folded a few months into operations. He is also the founder of CrusadeHero, a crowdfunding platform for personal causes that did not succeed due to an unvalidated product market fit exacerbated by the small market to work with. He became the CEO of Elbi.Agency, a digital agency for managed e-commerce services, folded two years after operations. While there are other small ventures that did not succeed, RM is proud to endure the failures that made him realize his mantra of “Thinking Big, Starting Small and Acting Fast.” RM broaden his perception that business failures are the opposite of success but a stepping stone towards it. 

RM Nisperos is also a leader seasoned by the International Order of DeMolay, Mt. Makiling Chapter in Los Banos, Laguna. He was voted as the Master Councilor way back in 2003 and just finished his 2-year term as the President of the Makiling DeMolay Alumni Association No. 23. He was the National Auditor for the DeMolay Alumni Association of the Philippines (DAAP) from 2015 – 2017. RM now utilizes his leadership skills in building more business. 

On a side note. Some quirky facts about RM.

RM Nisperos, as most people don’t know, has an exciting and adventurous side. RM Nisperos is a sports enthusiast. He was awarded Rookie of the Year in his 1st year in high school and the Athlete of the Year in his last year for exceptionally performing in basketball, volleyball, softball, and football. He consistently won MVP honors in most sporting events during his hay days in high school. He was also an active advocate of Ultimate Frisbee in UP Los Banos, founding the first Ultimate Frisbee Club in the Los Banos Community. RM Nisperos even came on top of one of the Los Baños Billiards Tournament way back in 2000. Not just a typical Manny Pacquiao boxing fan, RM Nisperos challenged himself by engaging in an ABAP-sanctioned amateur featherweight fight. Unfortunately, he lost his first and last boxing fight. RM Nisperos is also into other sports such as swimming, running, darts, bowling, badminton, table tennis, and fishing, though not as competitive as his other sports.

Not only a gym rat, but RM Nisperos also loves to work it out in his kitchen. RM Nisperos enjoys infusing creativity and innovation in every bit of his gastro-culinary adventures. But more importantly, the food RM Nisperos prepare gives fulfillment to himself and the people he comes in contact with.

RM Nisperos is also a confessed microphone-hugger when he is in his zone. Armed with his guitars, he had a solo guitar-play-and-sing gig for a wedding and had prior acoustic performance stints in a small bar in Quezon City (now retired). Music is one of his stress relievers. Whatever comes his way, RM Nisperos sings it away – his gateway to a paradise of relaxation.

Don't be shy.
