An Urban Hike

Professor Marijo Bos is a Californian who teaches leadership at IE Business School. She’s been living in Madrid for some ten years now, having made it her base for teaching and living in between business trips around the world.

Since she literally has no time for herself, she has come up with a clever way to combine work and pleasure. She does what she calls her world urban hikes. This time was in Istanbul. One of the first things she does when she arrives in a city is to take a brisk two-hour walk. Listen to her reasons for doing this, and be prepared to see some serious urban walking!!! Sometimes I had real problems keeping up with her!

Marijo Bos is President of the European Professional Women’s Network (EPWN), and also a student of the IE Executive Master in Positive Leadership and Strategy.

38 Flowers

Contrary to what you might think, this video isn’t about hippies with flowers in their hair, but rather a different type of flower power in the form of Bach flower therapy, explained to us here by microfinance marketing professor Maria Lopez-Escorial.

Prof. Lopez-Escorial is committed to making this world a better place. In order to achieve this she spends her time thinking about how to create and market ways to finance development projects in developing countries.

But that’s not her only passion. Some time ago one of her children had an illness that did not respond to traditional medicine, and her search for answers led her to discover Doctor Bach’s Therapy. Bach’s remedies use the healing properties of 38 flowers to treat a range of different disorders. The result of this happy discovery was that her son eventually recovered and she ended up becoming a Bach therapist.

You might also be interested to know that she’s a lovely person who really knows her stuff. Take a look at the video and you’ll see what I mean.
