I’m still recovering from the last CID (Community Integration Days)… what an intensive week!!


This time was in Madrid, but in the past, we have also had the opportunity to travel to CIDs in Dubai, Moscow, and Shanghai… I really recommend this last one… I went in May and it was really a great experience!!


The last CID in Madrid, 20 and 21 of November, has been very special. From the 22 people that are currently in my class, 16 of us could travel to the event; it was amazing! There were Samer from Qatar, Yoshi from Portugal, Gary from Australia, Roman from Russia, Juan from Guatemala… up to 16 people… I won’t say them all because this will seem instead of a blog a geography lesson J


After 13 months working together it was the greatest opportunity to see each other faces… (I have to admit that I nearly new all of them… I love CIDs… it was my fourth :-P).


During the first session, on Thursday, we had a very interesting workshop about Change Management, and the second day, on Friday, was the IE Alumni Conference “ Business in times of Economic Uncertainty”, which apart from very instructive was a great opportunity to meet current and former students from the Global MBA and other IE programs.


Apart from this most educative and academic part, there is a not less important side from the CIDs. We go all together for dinner, talk about our countries, families and friends… and then go to for a drink or two, dance in a disco, and show the rest our most informal side!! It is really about having fun with the people that you have been working during the last months… although nowadays they call it networking 😉


Sorry, but I have to leave you again… on Saturday we have a presentation of Human Resources Management and I can’t let my group mates to prepare the work alone!!


See you soon!
