I don't close on holidays...

...but I try to have fun when I work. So this is me working at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Flor #35. My office in Manhattan. ;-)
Talking about fun... I had much of it today going with a friend to Staten Island by ferry.

I've just remembered the same trip 6 years ago, when I was young and wild. We all have a past...

Tomorrow I will start my holidays in Boston. But I leave you with the soundtrack of my new book: The Talking Manager.

A few shots from last week.
I left Miami last Saturday under a storm...

...and I moved towards Costa Rica, where I had the chance to collaborate with the IEE (Instituto de Estudios Empresariales) and also to give a session on my new book, The Talking Manager, at Miravalles (University of Costa Rica).  I was very lucky: on Sunday they took me to the jungle and also to the beach.

After Costa Rica, I made a quick trip to Mexico to give a couple of sessions at the Human Resources Symposium held by ANTAD.

And Finally I headed to New York, where I had the chance to present my first book, Los próximos 30 años, to a group of young professionals in Manhattan. Here are the slides I used:

On Sunday, I went with my friend Nathan to bike Manhattan:

And Finally, yesterday I went up to the top of the Empire State Building to unveil the jacket desing of my new book, The Talking Manager, which as far as the publisher (Planeta) and I know, it's the first bilingual management book.  Here is the video where you can see its jacket design:

Summer mode = work & fun & fam & friends

A few moments from last two weeks:


Awesome day snorkeling at the Keys! Every now and then is healthy to enjoy some offline therapy.

There, in the Keys, we saw The African Queen boat, the one used for the 1951 classic directed by John Huston and starred Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. Check out the trailer at:


With my nieces Federica and Marta whom I met before flying to the US. They are such a lot of fun... 


With my friend Javier D'Ambrosio, whom I visited in his new studio in Miami and had a memorable dinner with afterwards.
