NETWORKING SESSION BETWEEN EMBA BARCELONA AND MADRID

Most people would not rate attending a gathering at ESADE´s Sant Cugat campus as the best way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Yet they would have been wrong in the case of this Saturday gathering of EMBA students from ESADE Madrid and Barcelona. I for one was glad I went.

I was lucky enough to see ¨Building and Bringing Down Human Towers¨ (‘human towers’ are built by people balancing on the shoulders of others to reach a height of two dozen feet or more).

It just went to show that where there is a will, there is a way. When one tells people why a project is important, every one rallies round. ¨There is a lot we can learn from those who build human towers.

After a much-needed coffee break, we plunged into the session titled ‘Atmosphere Management’.

I guessed that it must be about managers creating a work atmosphere in which people are willing to give their all.

In fact it was this and a great deal more.

It proved to be one of the most enriching classroom debates I have heard. The participants made me ask myself many questions and greatly enriched my knowledge. It made me realise something that we should all be aware of, namely: ¨Knowledge stems from the class, it does not lie with the teacher¨.

You should know that the future of entrepreneurship lies in your hands. Tell stories through transmedia and with drivers who spur engagement.

I am deeply grateful for such an awesome Saturday afternoon.
