The great laboratory of life

Today I bring you an entrepreneurial project that’s already a reality. It is very special for me and for a few people (teachers of different educational levels) that I had the pleasure of meeting more than a year ago thanks to the Princess of Girona Foundation. Today, I can proudly say that since then we have formed a very special team of people, who remain in contact thanks to social media, but especially thanks to each one of the people behind it, because otherwise nothing of this would make sense.

Today I present to you Colectivo Docente. If you are interested in education, please keep reading. (more…)

Rooral is the solution

In December of 2014, almost 6 years ago, I first wrote about the protagonist of today’s post. Today, after having been a witness of part of his entrepreneurial adventure and, what’s more important, after having his support and love, I let myself write about him again. He is, without any doubt, a real entrepreneur. His name Juan Barbed; his “job”, entrepreneur.

I don’t think I’m wrong if I say that one of Juan’s dreams has always been to help others improve their quality of life. I said it years ago and I will say it now. That’s what I call holding true to his convictions. Do you want to know what Juan is doing right now? Keep reading. (more…)

The breakfast burger

On Wednesday the 3rd of June, the second session of the live interviews cycle of Inspira STEAM at home took place, whose aim is to give visibility to female scientists and technologists. I have already talked to you about Inspira STEAM before, but not about today’s protagonist. She is an 18-year-old researcher, inventor, and entrepreneur, who is currently studying her second year of Medicine.

Do you want to know a bit more about this woman? Keep reading. (more…)

FLL Junior: Boosting the energy

Last 8th of February, the University of Deusto was transformed for a few hours to host an event that, after 10 years, was held for the first time in three different headquarters: Bilbao, Mondragón and San Sebastián. I’m talking about the FLL Euskadi, which I’ve already talked about more than once. This time, for some people, this edition has been very special. For me, apart from being a pleasure, it has also been a challenge that has boosted my energy and has made me trust much more in our new entrepreneurs generations, who have fresh ideas.  (more…)

The keys of a good leadership, also for entrepreneurs

In the school year of 1993-94, as soon as I finished the Pedagogy studies and I got a diploma in Education of Leisure, I applied for the Young Leaders Fellowship scholarship of the Ryoichi Sasakawa Foundation. The goal was to make a research project that allowed me to lay the foundation of what my future doctoral thesis would be while I started working at the Leisure Studies Institute of the University of Deusto, founded in 1988 in the heart of the then Faculty of Philosophy and Education Science. Then started a long journey that’s still going, which I’m very aware of, and that made me work today at the Faculty of Psychology and Education of the University of Deusto, developing at least two of my biggest passions: teaching, with everything that implies; and the promotion of entrepreneurship, the entrepreneurial person – especially the teacherpreneur – and their training.

Do not worried, today’s post is not about my story, it is about leadership. Do you want to keep reading? You don’t? Then you’ll miss something; you do? Keep reading. (more…)
