For almost 2 decades Francis Miranda worked in advertising with a career that included stints in Barcelona, Kuala Lumpur and Manila. A creative at heart, he started as a copywriter and worked his way up to Chief Operating Officer in local and international advertising agencies. These 17 years spent in the corporate world helped him understand human nature and inspired him to pursue a career in inspirational speaking.
At 40 he decided to retire from a lucrative and fulfilling advertising career and undergo a new adventure as an inspirational speaker. He has since then been invited to give talks to a variety of companies and has spoken in conferences like the Kerygma Conference. His talks and workshops are known for their fun, irreverent yet practical and life changing style. This has earned him the affectionate nickname as the Unapologetic Dude. Francis has spoken for audiences in the Philippines, the United States, the United Kingdom and Malaysia.
Francis realized that most people are hostages to the opinions and thoughts of other people. This is what pushed him to create Unapologetic, a platform that intends to empower people through talks, workshops and content that will free them from the pressures associated with pleasing other people.
Francis is also a long time business partner in 360 Fitness Club and the Designtrepreneur Academy. His experience as an entrepreneur has helped him also create powerful entrepreneurial workshops for startups as well as for the Globe myBusiness Academy. Francis is also an improv theater practitioner and uses the skills from improv to add fun to his engagements.
When he is not busy with talks and speaking engagements Francis is an avid traveler. His goal is to see the world while sharing his message.
