Harry the Sheepdog

With great sadness and deep gratitude we say goodbye to our Chief Barking Officer, Harry the Sheepdog. Since our foundation in November 2007 Harry has been a source of great inspiration, ensuring we never take ourselves too seriously and remembering the important things in life (in her case not only food, but mostly 😉). She participated in many programs and activities including mindfulness walks at Universitas Telefonica and was a summer resident at the Glasgow School of Art in the Scottish Highlands. Thousands of people from around the world have heard her stories in class, and thousands more have read them in our articles and books. She even appeared in a custom animation by the European Business Review. She had a wonderful life and a good death. What more can anyone ask.

Riding the big heatwave of 2018

I am not sure how this one will go down in the record books, but in my mind right now I cannot remember anything like it.  The temperatures in Barcelona the past few weeks have been suffocating!  Setting records for both highs and lows – as in the low temperature for the day was still in the 30s!  This is craziness.  And I was complaining about the heat before the heatwave even hit, so you can only imagine my feelings while we were under siege…
