Teaser of “Little Tango had a secret”

Do you want to know a secret?

I have never worked at a company such as Tango/04. I mean, such as the company I envisioned to create, back in 1991.

Children rapidly find a public figure to take as example when they start playing a sport. But it is much more difficult when there is no model to imitate. Even in life, in general, it is difficult to find far-reaching ethical models. But at least it is easy to find antimodels.

My antimodel were the monopolistic corporations of that time, such as Telefonica and Iberia, the Spanish phone and airline companies, whose customer service, back then, seemed to be led by highly sadistic people.

I wanted to work for a company that was just the opposite. And, luckily, we eventually found our way.

Well, soon I will reveal here the secret that made us compete and thrive in the tough IT market for more than 25 years. The ultimate key factor of our success, that is.

Just bear with me a bit more.

Preparing the upcoming Symposium…

Oficina Raul

Where have I been? Quite busy, after the (awesome) inauguration of our new offices, preparing the super ultra mega wonderful amazing Tango/04 Monitoring Symposium 2014.

(You’ve already saved the date, right? May 23th in Sitges, a beautiful town near Barcelona).

But before talking about it, some photos of our beautiful new offices.  

And yes, we do have a gym at our offices. 🙂

(Thanks to the great Egue y Seta studio for the spectacular project).

You are invited.


Where have I been? Learning with leading entrepreneurs in Manila, Hamburg, Dublin, working with our talented team in both Barcelona and Buenos Aires, observing real-time monitoring in China (more about this soon), visiting the Maldives (hey, I need some rest from time to time) and above all involved in the phenomenal transformation of Tango/04. Yes, what we are cooking up with the new Knowledge Modules is nothing short of revolutionary (more about this quite soon, too). And recently, we moved to beautiful and more spacious offices in Barcelona, too. And that’s the point of this post. You are invited to come to our inauguration on Thursday, February 13. Don’t miss it. Just please contact your Tango/04 rep before we run out of space! It will be wonderful to give you a hug then. More details here. See you soon!

The Monitoring Symposium…and a brainteaser

Tango/04 Monitoring Symposium 2012 - PortAventura

How was our Monitoring Symposium? Fantastic, both the European and the Latin American versions: record attendance, record dizziness in PortAventura (with the highest roller coaster in Europe), record number of bird pictures taken at Temaikèn in Argentina, but above all, record quality of monitoring success story presentations, with experts from Zurich Insurance, BBVA, EMCF, International Card Services, and Supervielle Bank, among others…Many thanks to all speakers and attendees!

Next week I’ll tell you how Visibility could have prevented one of the most notorious astronautics accidents in history. But in the meantime I leave you with a brainteaser, which also has to do with Visibility:

What number comes next in this series?

10, 9, 60, 90, 70, 66

See you soon!
