    Zyncro with Innovation: We’re participating in the next Inspiring Evening 

    Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

    “It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that things are difficult.”
    Lucius Annaeus Seneca, Roman philosopher, statesman and writer.

    Zyncro en Inspiring EveningOn May 10, the event Inspiring Evening will take place in Sant Cugat del Vallès, a meeting with innovation in ESADECREAPOLIS, the first international center to practise “Open & Cross Innovation“, a philosophy which defends the idea that in order to innovate, resources outside the limits of the company need to be used, and that, in order for innovation to be effective, it needs hybrid participation from different sectors and disciplines. Zyncro shares this idea of open and cross innovation, and in this sense, our CEO, Lluís Font, will be present at the event together with iSOCO and Humannova.

    What is Inspiring Evening?

    These events were conceived as a space for creating new ideas, promoting networking, and giving rise to innovation. The format used is interactive talks in which, initially, three keynote speakers give a short but practical presentation, followed by discussions with participants, always dealing with current topics and issues associated with innovation.

    Where and when is it happening?

    Inspiring Evening will take place on May 10 in the auditorium of ESADECREAPOLIS, in Sant Cugat del Vallès from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm.

    Who is it aimed at?

    If you’ve read this far and are excited about the event, then this is for you. In other words, anyone interested in innovation is encouraged to participate.

    What will be discussed?

    On this occasion, speakers will talk about how to involve people in innovation: “Involving people to Innovate”. At Zyncro, we believe the Inspiring Evenings are an excellent platform for encouraging entrepreneurship, dynamic activity in companies, and hence, they promote Enterprise 2.0, as well as being ideal spaces for communicating about innovation.

    Ready to be inspired? Join Zyncro and innovate at Inspiring Evening!

    ComunicaME: Three ways of improving your income statement 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    ComunícaME IIGood morning! Today I would like to present the second edition of the Spanish-language event ComunicaME, which will be held on Friday, March 3 in Hotel ME Barcelona, and at which I will be participating as a speaker. You can check out the full program here. In the current climate, it’s about helping us to improve. That’s the claim and aim of the event.

    Firstly, at the experienced hand of Zyncro, we will look once again at the role that Enterprise Social Networks play in optimizing business management.

    A comprehensive agency with more than 17 years’ experience and countless success stories, Equipo Singular, and their interactive agency Grapa, will show us how externalizing resources in marketing and communication can help to improve the income statement, as well as drive growth.

    Finishing up the lineup of speakers is Everis, a firm that offers business strategy and technology application maintenance and outsourcing solutions, contributing to the social and economic development of businesses and enterprises.

    To give us an idea, here’s some of the aspects that will be covered during ComunicaME, professional tools and strategies that will help you to:

    • Optimize and flexibilize resources
    • Be more competitive
    • Save in costs
    • Encourage growth, seeking out opportunity
    • Internationalize

    Working in areas of the company that can drive the income statement:

    • Internal communication, B2B and B2C
    • Resource management: technology applications and outsourcing
    • Externalizing Communication and Marketing aimed at getting results
    • Digitalization
    • Making the business model more flexible

    Initiative, boldness, and a dose of courage. These are the traits this article in Spanish from the Expansión newspaper calls for in new enterpreneurs or executives.

    Well, I would add that in the case of business management, you also need knowledge, to be tuned into the latest tools that the market offers us. This is what ComunicaME is about: knowledge to improve.

    In his article Transparent or translucent?, Seth Godin presented a transversal vision of the company that needs to show itself, simplify management and make processes more flexible.

    I’d like to illustrate my point with a video, from the point of view of Marketing and Corporate Communication, with this link from Orange UK’s YouTube channel, which perfectly optimizes their sponsorship strategy with their corporate legend. :-)

    Orange UK


    Social networks are implemented non-stop in Spanish Hotel SMEs, while technology companies grow at an astounding rate. The goal is to:

    • Modernize
    • Learn
    • Adapt
    • Become digital

    The 21st century executive is forced to know all the technology resources applicable in business to be able to make the right decisions in this competitive, cut-throat and changing environment.

    No doubt about it! You need to be at ComunicaME!

    See you on March 2 at 8.45 am :-)

    Zyncro: Barcelona, Argentina, Japan… the World 

    Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

    Broad and Alien is the World…

    as Ciro Alegria said around the mid 20th century.  But now, the world for Zyncro is a little narrower and a little more our own.

    It's official... Zyncro created in Japan :-)

    Yesterday Dídac Lee could not resist any longer and first thing in the morning, he published a tweet announcing that Zyncro was opening its office in Japan.  In fact, he had wanted to publish it the night before when he found out the contract had been signed… but here in the marketing department, we had to ask him to leave it for the next day…

    Following the happy news about Japan yesterday, Zyncro has participated in the @22Update Breakfast today, together with BesTV and Groupalia.  Three companies born in Catalonia but with a completely international profile from the day they began.  In fact, currently 99.99% of BesTV billing is outside Spain and Groupalia who have been running for just one year, (May 2010) has already opened in 8 countries. .

    If you are interested in what has been discussed today at the @22Update Breakfast, you can follow all the comments about this event with the Twitter hashtag #22Breakfast, as  Zyncro_es has been broadcasting the speakers’ comments live (only in Spanish).

    As you can see, the world is a little less broad and alien everyday for  Zyncro, but the best part is that all of you are accompanying us every step of the way whilst we grow together hand in hand….as well as growing social software

    Thank you all for the congratulating messages we received after announcing the new phase that Zyncro is embarking in Japan.  We hope to relay many much more good news soon.

    Zyncro, Barcelona, Argentina, Japan… the World, here we come!
