There is no more fun and romantic plan than a picnic in a beautiful garden, park or field. Perhaps it is due to the influence of love films or because nature is a great place to escape from the stress of the city. In any case, a picnic is always a great plan.

For those of us in Madrid during this summer (a plan which can also be carried out in spring, autumn and even on sunny winter days), here are the most interesting options for going for a picnic without leaving the city in its most beautiful spots. Whether it is with your partner, you friends or with kids, go out to a park and enjoy a day or an afternoon there, it will recharge your energy levels.

We already know that in, order to organise a business event, it is very important to do so under quality parameters of the highest standard. Conveying what our product or service represents in the event that we have been entrusted to organise is a task that requires plenty of attention to detail and responsibility. All of the items involved are of great importance but everything must start by choosing an appropriate location for the event and, like we said in one of our previous posts, a hotel like Liabeny can solve many of the situations that may occur in such an event with complete guarantees.

Gifting life, the biggest act of generosity

Every 3rd of June is Organ and Tissue Donor Day. It is a happy day of celebration but, of course, also commemorates all the people that carry out the biggest act of generosity that exists in life. It is essential to be grateful to all the people who choose to gift life to others who need it when theirs has reached the end of the road, a great act of bravery and altruism for which they will receive nothing in exchange but which will change the receiver’s life.

Spain is a world leader in organ transplants. 2014 closed with a ratio of 36 donors per million people, a high number that resulted in 4,360 transplant operations according to the Spanish Transplant Organisation (ONT), perhaps the body that works best in Spain, carrying out an impeccable job.

Working away from home self employed: Madrid and the “co-working”

By | 2 May, 2015 | 0 comments

Today, in Spain, working self employed is something that is growing in popularity. Many professionals are seeing this option as a good solution to the terrible economic recession that Spain has endured. Being freelance or self employed is something quite common today and even envied by many because, despite being a bit dangerous or uncertain at the beginning, the truth is that it has excellent perks such as working for one self or being able to organise one’s own time.

Perhaps one of the negative points about being self employed was where to actually work. Most self-employed people work at home but many realised that this was not positive and that it had some annoying problems. The main problem was the lack of interaction with people, something that you can enjoy in an office but not working alone at home. Another was the timetable: when you work at home for yourself, it is true that you are in charge of the time but this also means that you can be working late into the never-ending evening, since your “office” is just a few steps away from the bedroom, the living room, etc. And lastly, where to receive your clients? That’s another problem to take into account.

Art is out on the street this spring

Madrid Street Art Project

With the warm spring temperatures and the sun making regular appearances, everyone wants to get out on the street and plans multiply themselves, whether they are cultural, leisure, drinks on a terrace… any excuse is a good one so you can get some sun in after a long winter. Because days are longer, you can now enjoy a late afternoon on a nice terrace having a cool drink and, if your surroundings change and become pure art, all the better.

That is precisely what will happen on the streets of the legendary district of Lavapiés because from the 7th until the 21st of May, most of them will become an artistic intervention. C.A.L.L.E. is the name of this colourful and creative festival that, for the second year running, lands on the facades, shop windows and exterior spaces of shops to turn them into a huge masterpiece of urban art.

Today, the marketing and communication activities of companies as well as the sales techniques have changed and adapted themselves to the current needs of mobility, product accessibility and profiles, both of the client and the teams that make up said companies. As part of the motivation activities that are developed in trainings, there is an increasing need to be in touch with teams to bring them closer to products, especially when we can see that they are decentralised from the office and spread around different locations.

For this, it’s very useful to carry out certain meetings or gatherings with your team, during which you can show the company’s numbers, its objectives, novelties and also listen to the best sales people in our company: the staff.
