Building a company people enjoy working for

Most companies operate on a set of policies: mandated vacation days, travel guidelines, standard work hours, annual goals. But what happens when a company looks less to control and more to trust?

Patty McCord, the iconic former chief talent officer at Netflix, shares the key insights that led her to toss the handbook out the window.

Guide to the Málaga Film Festival 2019

Your guide to Malaga Film Festival 2019

One of the biggest events in Malaga – Malaga Film Festival.

The 8-day event celebrates the very best of Spanish cinema and provides a feast of films, some of the best on screen, as well as a lot of cinema-related activities. This year is the 22nd anniversary of Malaga Film Festival, an event in the city that draws crowds in their thousands.

Check out the agenda.

Diversify your brain: Get in with the App crowd!

So, when I´m not working, I try to go to this Meetup group: Málaga Ideathons

The groups mission is thus: “Apping” Malaga’s Life. Participate on an event focussed on creative ideas to improve life in Malaga by the use of apps and smartphones that could eventually lead to start-ups by the participants. A great opportunity to network for entrepreneurs and creatives.”

OK, it´s true, the technology, and the techno mumbo jumbo vernacular is way beyond my skill set, but, for the moment, technology is nothing without people who generate the ideas, and solve the problems. In light of this, I would check them out. Go on, get out of your comfort zone, and get ”Apping”.

You could also propose that the group investigate a problem you experience in your day-to-day life, or an issue at work that could be solved with an App.

However, if that´s not your cup of tea, why not check out an Inglés Málaga Meetup event instead.

We are crazy about Andalusia!

Love Andalusia Viva Andalusia! British people love Andalusia.

Andalusia Day is celebrated on February 28 and it commemorates the February 28, 1980 referendum in which the Andalusian electorate voted to make Andalusia an autonomous community of Spain. We love Andalusia, and Andalusia loves us. How are you going to celebrate this historic day?

Love to love: Buy Local

I love Saint Valentine´s day, not because I´m romantic, and not because I want my post box to be full of cards, flowers and cuddly toys, but because it´s the perfect opportunity to demonstrate love for the city you live in.

So, from today until the end of February, I´m not going to spend one penny in a shop which isn´t locally owned. And, I´m going to start by promoting the fabulous second-hand clothes shop: Madame Susette y Senor Reina. 

Madame Susette is delicious, and her boutique shop is a sensory delight. If you want to stand out from the crowd, you can come and study English with me, and you can also treat yourself to the pleasure of second-hand clothing shopping.

Love to love Málaga
