Since the news of Thomas Coock’s bankruptcy , many ideas have come to mind and that is why I decided to write this post (on a Friday!!!) of reflections, relating the fall of the tour operator Thomas Cook and freelancers or entrepreneurs. I think that if you have a personal project these reflections will be useful to you. By the way, yesterday I gave a talk, together with Andrés Pérez Ortega. Do you want at a new Networking event created by Zaragoza Activa called FaceToFace, and I have to say that the type of events like yesterday’s look very good to achieve.
That people connect with
Each other, since normally in traditional events what you see are speakers giving their talks finishing the event and 30m for networking. That is, those who attend and pay the company data entrance barely have time to show themselves or try to find out. What other people present ( which for me would be a plus for those who attend these types of events ). This idea that they are going to bring you value in 20m of talk is already very obsolete. No one is going to help you build your business or encourage you to work on your brand in 20m. For me, the objective of these events would be to give you insights. Into things that may be useful to you (if you don’t know them), to encourage you to.
Do you want Connect with other professionals
And to encourage you to see other solutions to your possible problems or needs . But this is a topic for another post. Now I want to talk about something that I have been observing for. Some time USA CFO and that I see professionals protesting because they have been in the sector for. Years and now things are no longer going as they used to. And when faced with this problem, instead of looking for a solution. What I see are complaints against what others do or against the environment and the ways in which others achieve their results.
New tour operators have arrived that have created vacation packages more focused on travelers’ experiences. And have also adapted to the environment (Internet) and have known how to better reach their potential clients. And while this was happening, this enormous tourism company. That created the vacation package continued with its model thinking that due to its brand and reputation, the necessary clients would arrive. He did not know how or did not want to adapt to new times , competition and customer needs, and possibly this (and some other reasons) has led him to this end.
