Metro Society has produced “Inspiring People,” a four-part TV series airing on Metro Channel dedicated to the heroes and beacons of hope during these unprecedented and uncertain times.

Hosted by the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Raul Manzano, the on-air special features today’s modern-day heroes who rose above the tough situation to uplift others and inspire many to do the same.

Its upcoming episode airing on Wednesday (August 12) shares a message of courage, as it opens with the story of entrepreneurs Sam Verzosa and RS Francisco who were armed with the courage to persevere and reach out to those in need. Then, Dr. Saturnino Javier shows what courage means in leadership as he shares his own experience leading and motivating medical professionals and frontliners in Makati Medical City in the height of crisis. With a message of courage and hope, actress Iza Calzado concludes the second part talking about how one finds true courage in hope, faith, and love.

Episode 3, which airs on August 26, is about sharing one’s gift to others, giving parts of themselves to inspire, uplift, and lead. The episode opens with Gary Valenciano who shares his gift of music, inspiring people with his actions to raise money for charity. The episode also sees us talk to Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles, whose work with the IATF shows his leadership and service that had offered life-changing solutions that benefited the health of the community at large. Finally, sharing their gift of creativity to fight COVID-19, architects Dan Lichauco, William Ti, and Denise de Castro talk about their efforts to help this nation build and rebuild in the new normal.

The final part of Metro Society’s Inspiring People TV special, which airs on September 9, sees trailblazers who act as beacons of light that shine in the darkness, wielding their influence and reach in their respective industries for a greater good. The episode opens with Angel Locsin, who uses the power of celebrity to help others and raise awareness on important issues. Metro Society also sits down with fashion designers Rajo Laurel, Patty Ang, and Edwin Tan, who use their power of creativity towards a greater cause. Finally, the entire series culminates with Ramon Ang who shows how big business can do good, and how leadership and shaping the business environment to help others may prove to be the most meaningful act one can dedicate themselves to yet.

Its premiere episode, which aired last July 29, featured Drs. Z and Aivee Teo who used innovation and heeded their calling to help others in a time when help is needed the most. After, Dr. Susan Mercado lent a reassuring voice amidst the pandemic, tackling issues of public health and leadership. Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat, meanwhile, shared her experience and insight on leadership and good governance in the time of COVID-19.
