More than a decade ago I met the protagonist of today’s post, my dear friend Diego. Then, I contacted him to carry out a session based on theatre and dramatization techniques on “overcoming fears” within the entrepreneurial spirit developing program Ekin-IT which I was honoured to coordinate at the University of Deusto. Diego was also working at Di Towanda Talent. Today, Diego, a person with that entrepreneurial spirit I defend, is the director of Talento Juntos. Do you want to know more about him and his project? Keep reading.
As I was telling you, more than 10 years ago, if not 15, I met Diego Martos, with whom I had a conversation on his Instagram account (@talentojuntos) a few weeks ago. It was the first time in a long time that we spoke “live” and I assure you that I felt comfortable, as it couldn’t be in any other way. Sometimes I think I don’t manage my time well enough and I don’t spend it how and with whom I should.
The thing is that, after many mutual likes on social media, Diego offered me a conversation and I wasn’t going to say no, and neither did I want to, so a week after there we were both of us with some friends talking about entrepreneurship and the importance the person has as the central axis. He in Madrid, I in Bilbao, but, as always, surrounded by talent.

“My best talent is to be surrounded by talents”. Diego Martos
I’m not going to tell you that during this more than a decade Diego has changed much, but, as he says, “he has improved in maturity and strength”. If I had to describe him in a few words, I’d say that Diego is an ideas generator, a project creator, an “implementer and executer”, a people’s connector, a fighter, a restless worker, a lover of the methodology of the performing arts (not in vain he grew up backstage), a transforming agent, very curious and, by the way, very aware of the “there’s still so much to do” and “we have to work in a cooperative way” from “ideas, not ideologies”.
Diego founded together with Álvaro Pérez Talento Juntos, a “strategic consultancy” created in order to contribute a disruptive vision to organizations, companies and professionals, especially seniors. For that, they’re based on humanist values, giving special importance to detail, promoting human connection, empathy, and closeness, opting for innovation, trusting the emotion, and being creative. All of that to make a difference from passion and from the heart.
If there’s something that identifies Diego and his team is the belief in common sense, that’s why, today, he is working on a project called “common sense leaders”, which brings together a group of people/free thinkers who aspire to be a think tank and lobby. He is already planting the seeds with the community of people with “admirable talents who wish to help solve many professional problems” who form Talento Juntos; so the first step is already taken because he is not alone.
I encourage you to watch the following interview (in Spanish) to know a bit more about Diego and his ideas.
Enjoy this new month.
