TEDx talk (english subtitles)

About 3 months ago I had the pleasure to give a TEDx talk at the University of Seville. And well, here it is now with English subtitles, for all my English-speaking friends to be able to understand better. The whole TED concept is to share ideas worth spreading. So I hope somebody can get something out of mine.

But the point of this post is to thank some people that helped me do it (sometimes without maybe even knowing about it): My sister, Magdalena, and my friend Bico Bermudez. The entire amazingly bright and young TEDxUniversidaddeSevilla team (especially my coach, Rafael Chico. Yes, there is a coach for each speaker). And then, in order of appearance, my daughters Adriana and Carlota. My friend and longtime partner Alain Uceda (who gave a beautiful shape to the title, as he usually does to many things). My masters at Chiat/Day (Rick BoykoNick CohenTy Montague, Ann Lemon, Paula Dombrow, John ButlerMike ShineGraham Clifford, Tom Scherma, and of course, especially Bill Hamilton, wherever you are). Christian Escribà and Hans Gissinger (for having me at the “Tartas” project). Javier SánchezSuha Shatila and Mr. Nabeel (for having me at the Katara Plaza project). Valmir Leite and Irene Knoth (for having me in our Brasil project). And of course, Esther (for that wonderful present you gave me).

Thank you all for helping me shape some ideas that I hope are worth spreading.

Note: While you can see the official video on TED until the subtitles are officially released, the only way to show them is by embedding an html code here (you need to click the “CC” button):

Hace unos 3 meses tuve el placer de dar una charla TEDx en la Universidad de Sevilla. Y bueno, aquí está ahora con subtítulos en inglés, para que todos mis amigos de habla inglesa puedan entender mejor. Todo el concepto de TED es compartir ideas que vale la pena difundir. Así que espero que alguien pueda sacar algo de la mía.

Pero el objetivo de este post es agradecer a algunas personas que me ayudaron a hacerlo (a veces sin saberlo): mi hermana Magdalena y mi amigo Bico Bermúdez. Todo el increíblemente brillante y joven equipo de TEDxUniversidaddeSevilla (especialmente mi “coach”, Rafael Chico. Sí, hay un “coach” para cada ponente). Y luego, en orden de aparición, mis hijas Adriana y Carlota. Mi amigo y socio desde hace mucho tiempo Alain Uceda (quien le dio una forma hermosa al título, como suele hacer con muchas cosas). Mis maestros en Chiat/Day (Rick Boyko, Nick Cohen, Ty Montague, Ann Lemon, Paula Dombrow, John Butler, Mike Shine, Graham Clifford, Tom Scherma y, por supuesto, especialmente Bill Hamilton, estés donde estés). Christian Escribà y Hans Gissinger (por contar conmigo en el proyecto “Tartas”). Javier Sánchez, Suha Shatila y Mr. Nabeel (por contar conmigo en el proyecto Katara Plaza). Valmir Leite e Irene Knoth (por darme la bienvenida a nuestro proyecto de Brasil). Y por supuesto, Esther (por ese maravilloso regalo que me diste).

Gracias a todos por ayudarme a dar forma a algunas ideas que espero merezcan la pena difundir.

    1. Thank you so much Rasha. I’m flattered by your words 🙂
      And how could I say no to helping you after our first conversation? I had to be truthful to my TED talk words.
      Your passion, talent and determination are a source of inspiration. And today, after almost a year of conversations, work sessions, and presentations, I’m filled with excitement as we navigate this challenging and very rewarding path together.
