Travelling, as we have done it so far, is going to change forever.

The tourism sector has always been an evergreen or an always-on industry. It’s perpetually high season somewhere in the world, there are millions of people planning their next trip, and we are continually daydreaming about ticking more boxes in our bucket list. But then 2020 happened, and the rules of the game changed abruptly.

Despite everything, the tourism industry is not going to disappear; that’s pretty much crystal-clear. Travelling is part of who we are, so we will have to adapt — once again. Some things will remain, like the use of mandatory sanitizing gel everywhere or wearing masks on…

As time goes by, I unfortunately see more and more the lack of interest of European Media outlets in showing to the rest of the world what’s happening in some under-developed countries. For instance, at least 6.2 million people have had to leave their homes inside Syria, and over 7.5 million children are currently in need and dying.

I’ve barely seen that on TV.

When a topic is not directly affecting us, it can be easy to turn our backs on it and…

Changing jobs is perhaps one of the most important decisions you will be making throughout your career, and for that reason, it is not something you would do light-hearted. If you are qualified or if your skills are in demand, you would never switch to whichever opportunity you stumble upon first.

If you’ve been going through an interview lately, you may have found it pretty evident that recruiting processes are becoming much more dynamic. Marketing and human resources are more than ever going hand in hand, and that’s the reason I partnered with Diogo Sassetti, Media Solutions Manager at LinkedIn

It’s official. We all can agree that 2020 hasn’t been a great year so far. With lots of countries currently stuck in a total lockdown or shutting down nonessential commerce, it’s beyond argument that for many of us, the upcoming months won’t probably be looking very promising either. But there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.

It’s also indisputable that during these hard times where people are confined at home, and recreational activities are pretty limited, social media has been proven to be our best ally. Working as some sort of a movie theatre, one can find himself…

Es oficial. Todos estaremos de acuerdo si decimos que en 2020 la cosa no ha ido bien. Con muchos países en medio de un bloqueo total o cerrando el comercio no esencial, no cabe duda que para muchos de nosotros, los próximos meses tampoco parezcan muy prometedores. Pero siempre hay luz al final del túnel.

También es algo innegable que durante estos tiempos complicados donde la gente está confinada en casa y las actividades recreativas son bastante limitadas, las redes sociales se han convertido en nuestro mejor aliado. Como una especie de sala de cine, uno puede pasarse horas viendo…

Otro día más me despierto a las 7 de la mañana con el sonido de la alarma. Tras posponerla varias veces, decido levantarme y me arrastro hacia la ducha. Café en una mano, iPhone en la otra, me detengo a recapacitar por un momento. ¿Qué pasaría si dejara de estar conectado o no fuera accesible todo el tiempo? ¿Cómo podría usar mi abono de transporte con tanta facilidad? ¿O qué hay de esos paseos nocturnos en Uber? Mi obsesión por el control de la tecnología, especialmente la telefónica, seguramente me está causando más mal que bien.

Bueno. Es verdad. Reconozco…

Twenty years ago, setting up a timer to record on a tape your favourite TV show using a VCR device or recording a message on your voicemail was a total success in technology automation. Even the simple task of programming a digital alarm clock to wake us up at a certain time in the morning stopped being rocket science for some of us, fulfilling an inner desire to be part of a society that was unstoppably shifting into a digital transformation.

This is just a small slice of how technology automation has changed over the past 20 years, and I…


Reasons why you should invest in well-being in the workplace and how to implement it properly.

Stress, back pain, anxiety or burnout. You might have experienced or heard of them at some point in your professional career, and it’s a fact that they can clearly burn someone both physically and mentally. Personally, I can’t deny that ditching this well-known 9 to 5 routine would be amazingly beneficial for everyone, but unfortunately — and facing the reality — I am not a travel blogger and my desk is waiting for me every morning. And if you’re reading this, you may well agree with me.

According to the latest report on work-related health, safety and illness from the…

I abruptly woke up at 7 AM to the buzzing of my daily alarm in my ear. Hitting the snooze button a couple of times I eventually dragged myself into the shower. Coffee in one hand, iPhone in the other, I pause to think for a moment. What would happen if I couldn’t be connected or reachable all the time? But how would I use my underground pass with such ease? Or what about those late night Uber rides? My obsessive phone checking traits surely cause me more harm than good.

Okay. It’s true. I will accept I am a…


How motivation plays a major role in the workplace of every organisation.

Are people constantly motivated at work by default? Does it differ depending on the area or business sector each corporation is pigeonholed in? Or is it an emotional factor that each worker can interpret in a different way — hence the different levels of motivation throughout an individual’s career? Clearly, these are some tricky questions, with even trickier answers, right?

According to a survey of more than 2,000 U.K. employees by Happiness Works, on behalf of the human resource firm Robert Half U.K., …
