“Valuation is more of an art than it is a science.” – Cristina

Here are 5 major takeaways from the conversation with Cristina:

  1. Valuation is more of an art than a science. It’s all about creating a story to back up numbers and applying them to describe a reasonable point of view.
  2. Multiculturalism is an important aspect of business, and it’s important to understand different cultures to avoid miscommunication and misunderstandings.
  3. Food is a big part of Filipino culture and is a way of showing love and hospitality.
  4. There are nuances in different cultures that can make or break a business deal, so it’s important to be aware of them.
  5. Valuations are calculated at a point in time and cannot predict the future, so there can be discrepancies between the valuation and the actual outcome.
