A week-old brief story that could change the world

I admit it's been an intense week., which comes from a few intense months. I still remember Andreu Coranti's phrase, gym teacher, when he said to us, "You'll rest when you're dead.". A philosophy of life possibly shared by my friend, colleague and partner Paula Fernández-Ochoa and his "I'm asking for life".

Digital transformation that can change the world

On Thursday afternoon we were able to attend the presentation of the book "The world changes, And you?"from my friend, colleague and partner Eva Collado, edited by Alienta Editorial. If Eva is emotional in the cradle, on Thursday his presentation -masterly- became a whirlwind of emotions.

Roger Domingo (Alienta) broke the ice by presenting the book and highlighting one of the first headlines as a big summary: "if you dominate the environment, you will dominate this new world". He gave the witness to Laura Chica, prologuist, who invited us to fall in love with uncertainty. Sonia Rodriguez Muriel And Carmen Soler Pagán, epiloguists, dedicated their words to describing Eve and defining her personal brand:

Eva is passion, it's feeling, it is courage and example of adapting to a new environment of uncertainty in which it has managed to function as if it was born in it.

Then it was Eva's turn, who reviewed the contents of the book under various master infographics made by Ronald Durán. And then, how not, made a "Collado special"when he sent out on stage to all what we had collaborated on the book. Treacherously, and without warning, asked us why we had agreed to collaborate and what part we had developed. It was great..

As the queue of fans looking for signature increased at the NH Collection Calderón in Barcelona, some of us went for a Luis Cañas to celebrate. It was an electrical event.

Ideas that can change the world: TEDx Eixample, Edition 2019

Friday was the big day. Nearly a year of work was distilled in 4 hours of big ideas, great people and an enviable audience. The first edition of the TEDx Eixample. Little did I imagine that that beer with Pau Samo in April 2018 at the Velodrome where he invited me to volunteer TEDx would end up so well.

Types that can change the world

Pau Samo is one of those guys. It reminds me of our grandparents' phrase "if you want someone to do something important, take it away from a very busy person". He's the most emotionally-controlled guy I've ever known.. He opened his hometown TEDx, Amposta, then that of its first host city, Lleida, and friday the one of your current city, Barcelona, Barcelona's Eixample. We all have a hero, And this is mine.

Poetry that can change the world

Toni Segarra, a guy who writes ads (and I could give them the voice in Off), had a responsibility to start the talks, and he did it talking about what he knows: Advertising. He explained the paradigm shift from spot TV to more than 100 different supports in which brands can expose their value. And he claimed the poetry of advertising, of life, as something that really reaches people.

Activated to change the world

If anyone can stand up 266 people in a wonderful place like the Antigua Fábrica Damm, that's Paula Fernández-Ochoa. And he did., And not just that, made us activate our joints, our muscles, claiming the old man "healthy mens in beer"as the nectar of a positive attitude. Its end, dressed in sports equipment, was to form, back with everyone standing, his uve of "I ask me for life".

Literature to change the world

Victor Amela, journalist and novelist, made a masterful review of the history of the Literature. But it wasn't history to use, but the resistances that the adoption of new technologies has brought. Socrates did not like Plato wrote appointments, And I don't follow. I'm leaving it for the talk., along with his grandfather's wonderful story when he suddenly dropped a dissatisfed phrase.I was able to save Lorca". That's great.

Africa can change the world

Transforming cities has fallen small Jordi Hereu. Now he wants to help transform an entire continent. That's why he told us about his experience in Fledge, an accelerator of social startups and the surprise they found in Africa. African startups are thirsty, and according to what the former mayor of Barcelona told us with electric passion, No doubt Africa is in position to be the new China.

Reasons to change the world

Sergio Ayala closed the first block of talks Causing. He knows better than anyone that differentiating us is key, that's why I'd be able to go on stage naked. Little was missing. He made a streaptease Reverse, and got dressed as he went apart the three key attitudes to succeed in this life. He gave us a magic formula, The +1, so as not to give up and go after our dreams. How we laughed, God!

Music to change the world

This artist from Cantonigrs by name Guillem Roma left us stunned by his music, his story, his guitar and trumpetless trumpet. He explained how he knows, half talking half singing, connections between a habanera and the reggaeton, going through various musical styles. He also gave us one of his masterpieces: the song "Connexions", a jewel that claims that things are more connected than we've been told.

Algorithms to change the world

The urban planning specialist Santamaría Sea put the technological key to a better life. He told us about an algorithm of artificial intelligence that can help us interpret the opinion of many citizens. And that will help us translate this knowledge into improvements on habitability. Life is made up of big little decisions. And one of the most important is: where do we want to live?

Synergies to change the world

Daria Shornikova, innovation programme manager, told us about people who decide to leave their original home voluntarily, because of their motivations and concerns, to found a new home in another country, with the people there. ¿Transmigrant? Many of the cultures as we know them today are the result of synergies, the concept of purity no longer makes sense, the world is one.

Beauty to change the world

The entrepreneur and cultural patron Anna Gener, the one that gives us a work of art every day in a tweet, told us about Beauty. Anna claimed the observation of beauty that is all around us, in a portrait, a sculpture, a painting, a narrow street full of graffiti or the rooftops of a city. Contemplation of beauty generates neural responses similar to physical pleasure. Pure therapy.

Laugh “Out” to change the world

Last but not least, Victor Parrado, Comic, explained how humor saved him (Literally) life. It was in an operating room., an unusual place to generate smiles. And he did.. His talk made us see that being an "ei" person predisposes to humor, to generate contacts, to make friends, in short, to be a little happier. The time we spend in this life will be the same with good predisposition as without it. A lesson, lots of laughs.

Small TEDx Eixample to change the world

Height doesn't make people great, it's about the heart. And Ana Reyes, our responsible volunteer, among other things, of the TEDx Eixample Salon, It's big. He explained that in addition to the big event we saw on Friday, we have planned other small and monographic format called Salon. And Anne, Of course, put salt and pepper on his talk.

Later, as soon as we have the videos, I'll do a monographic post of this TEDx that volunteers, speakers and possibly many people who attended, we will remember eternally.

Meanwhile, just say I'm proud of the team of fellow volunteers. In photography, from left to right, Up, Pau Samo (the great Bwana), speaker Daria Shornikova, a certain Guillem Recolons (curator speaker) speakers Guillem Roma, Paula Fernández-Ochoa and Víctor Parrado, Ruben G. Castro (our designer, a crack), Carme Gibert (responsible for communication and much more) And Robert Ferrer (Speaker Curator and TEDx expert). Down, from left to right, Alba Espejo (web and online communication), Eva Soto (organization and legal aspects), Ana Reyes (RESPONSIBLE TEDx Eixample Salon and much more) And Helena Casas (partners and more).

TEDxEixample Volunteers

I do not forget the ten university volunteers who accompanied us without expecting anything in return. The TEDx brand is powerful!

People connecting to change the world

Saturday didn't touch to rest, so I went to the connector friend call Luis Fernández del Campo. Luis summoned us a few #CocidoDay, an exceptional gastronomic gathering in the Galician restaurant Casa Darío Barcelona.

What's better than meeting people around a Galician stew? Luis joined there who knew as Paula Fernández-Ochoa (Have you noticed?, Paula is on Thursday, Friday and Saturday). Also to Ricard Lloria and Pedro Rojas. And people I only knew virtually as Olga Berbes, Eva Romeu, Marc Mora, Debora Viana And Raquel Rosell. Under the baton of Domi, I tried the best stew of my life. Thank you Luis for connecting.

  1. Thank you very much for your kind mention, Guillem. If yesterday's was a big colophon at an intense week, was thanks to everyone who came to share laughter, Anecdotes, and experiences around an excellent Galician stew in Casa Dario. If everyone could find what unites us, like we did yesterday, the world would be better. It was a day of the highest quality, both culinary and personal.
    By the way, I see that some early up early to burn calories on the water road. How big you are!!!

    • There was no better way to replenish strength than with that spectacular Galician stew, but mostly making friends. Thank you Luis for connecting us around a table as wonderful as Casa Darío's!

  2. Definitely three moments that can change everything.
    In my case, instead of the #cocidoday I attended a dinner with alumni from #jovesambfutur, Barcelona Active program, there by the 2011, where I had the honor of being a trainer.
    Groups of those in which magic is produced literally.
    And seeing them, see his talent, hug with the other photographers (some cracks) was the best possible colophon.
    And in all these wars, there's always someone hanging around back there, like pulling the strings, without you seeing it. And that one, friend Guillem, It's you.
    Thank you for everything you do, for all you need, for all that (I) Move.
    Without you, the world would be worse.
    A huge hug.

    • Xavier, what you did with those young people in 2011 and yesterday you remembered it's part of something unique, your purpose. These things make sense not only of our work, also into our lives. Thank you for your words, Friend, you've made me blush, And a lot. A giant hug!

    • The presentation was brutal, full of excitement and good vibes. Only you know how to do something so big, my gun. You know I wish you every success in the world. A dear hug, I also adore you… And you know it.
