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.

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.

We excelled in the travel bloggers test

By | 10 February, 2014 | 0 comments

Sometimes, our hotel receives very demanding clients or clients who have been the experience of many hotel nights behind them. Pleasing these experienced travellers is a massive challenge for our whole team. That is why it’s always good to know that when we receive one of them, they leave our hotel satisfied and share their experience with us with the rest of the world.

Recently, we had the chance to have Isaac and Paula among our guests -the authors of the travel blog, who chose our hotel to stay in Madrid, as part of an activity that they defined as “social-romantic soiree” and during which they interacted with the hundreds of fans that follow their publications in the social media.
