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.
