exporobertoarribasDuring the month of September IE University will be hosting the exhibition “Photos on the Move” featuring places and moments that reflect urban life in Segovia and academic life on the Santa Cruz la Real campus. Photos on display include a selection of 30 posts of the bilingual blog “Photos on the move” , with photos and texts by Roberto Arribas and translations by Gill Hopkin, both from IE’s communication department.

The photos are taken using a smartphone camera, tablet, and compact, and edited using applications specifically for retouching mobile photos. The diversity of the photos, which include photos in color and in black and white, is such that that they have been divided into five categories: interiors, urban life, nature, people, and details.

The exhibition, which is sponsored by IE’s Communication Department, shows aspects of life and features of the IE campus that normally go unnoticed. It also shows images of the streets, day-to-day life and famous landmarks in Segovia, as well as other places of special interest to the author.

Arribas considers the photos and texts to be inseparable. The texts are thoughts on universal issues like education, solidarity, freedom, respect for heritage, or teamwork. The aim is to provide a compact and simple view of humanistic thought processes expressed in colloquial terms, in line with IE University’s markedly humanistic approach to education.

The cultural space “La Carcel” in Segovia will be the scenery for a series of debates and conferences regarding equality, justice, human rights and peace. Within the participants of this forum we will have the journalist and professor of the Communication degree, Pilar Requena. Being an expert in Afghanistan, she will be touching upon very interesting topics such as the use of the burka and the young activist Malalai Joya.

Del 14 al 23 de marzo, la Cárcel_Segovia  Centro de Creación acogerá el IV Encuentro de Mujeres que Transforman el Mundo, un foro que servirá para reivindicar el papel fundamental que desarrollan en nuestra sociedad aquellas mujeres comprometidas con la igualdad, la justicia, la defensa de los Derechos Humanos y la paz. Entre los participantes de estas jornadas de reflexión y debate figura la periodista y profesora del grado en Comunicación en IE University, Pilar Requena. Experta en  Afganistán,  dialogará sobre la realidad que se esconde tras el burka y la propaganda en Afganistán con la joven activista Malalai Joya, un nombre tras el que se halla una mujer que se ha atrevido a denunciar a los criminales y señores de la guerra, y cuyas acusaciones le han valido su expulsión del parlamento y varios intentos de asesinato.

Organizado por la Concejalía de Cultura del Ayuntamiento de Segovia, con la colaboración de Casa África, Máster en Comunicación con fines sociales de la Universidad de Valladolid (Campus María Zambrano), Fundación Orange, Ontex y Turismo de Segovia, el encuentro reunirá a destacadas activistas, abogadas, parlamentarias, docentes, artistas, y periodistas, que mostrarán la realidad de la mujer en distintas partes del mundo y desde ámbitos diferentes.

Basketball ex-player, Anicet Lavodrama took part in a Communication seminar at IE University

Written on February 20, 2014 by Roberto Arribas in Uncategorized

2014-02-19 17.18.58-2Spanish-African basketball ex-player Anicet Lavodrama visited IE University campus in Segovia to participate as a speaker in a workshop directed by journalist Miguel Ángel Paniagua. Lavodrama, a retired Central African pivot, played in the ACB in the 80’s and 90’s in teams such as OAR Ferrol, CB Valladolid, and the Joventut of Badalona. He is currently, the agent of the pivot of the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Hispanic-Congolese Serge Ibaka

Lavodrama went through his trajectory with the IE students and remembered some of the milestones in his long sports career, and his work linked to the sports world. He explained to the Communications students some of the keys that made NBA the best basketball league in the world. In his speech in Segovia, the Sports Director of Tuenti Móvil Estudiantes team, Eduardo Pascual, and the Director of the Degree in Communication, Miguel Ángel Gabaldón, accompanied him. 

“Media and Communications and Modern NBA” is the name of this workshop, directed by one of the most well known sports journalists – especially when talking basketball – in Spain, Miguel Ángel Paniagua. There, they analyze the communications strategies of the NBA since 1984, when David Stern took charge, until now. The communication students learn the different tools and strategies that Stern instituted on his thirty years of direction, coinciding with the celebrated Dream Team, the super-stars team that represented USA in the Basketball Olympic Games, a perfect example of sports marketing. The end of Stern reign came with a change in the traditional communication models, and the NBA is an example of how a sports league adapted to new media and tools so powerful as social networks.

El ex jugador de baloncesto Anicet Lavodrama participó en un seminario de Comunicación en IE University

El ex jugador de baloncesto hispano-africano Anicet Lavodrama visitió el campus de IE University en Segovia para participar como ponente en un workshop que dirige el periodista Miguel Ángel Paniagua. Lavodrama, un pívot centroafricano retirado que hizo carrera en la ACB en los 80 y 90 en equipos como OAR Ferrol  CB Valladolid y en el Joventut de Badalona, es actualmente el agente del el ala-pívot hispano-congoleño de los Oklahoma City Thunder, Serge Ibaka. 

Lavodrama repasó ante los alumnos de IE algunos acontecimientos de su dilata trayectoria deportiva y su posterior desempeño profesional ligado a este deporte, y explicó a los alumnos de Comunicación de IE University algunas de las claves que han hecho de la NBA la mejor liga de baloncesto del mundo.  En su intervención en Segovia, Lavodrama estuvo acompañado por el director deportivo de Tuenti Móvil Estudiantes, Eduardo Pascual y por el director del grado en Comunicación, Miguel Ángel Gabaldón.

“Media and Comunications y Modern NBA” es el título de este workshop en IE University que dirige Miguel Ángel Paniagua, uno de los más reputados periodistas españoles cuando se habla de baloncesto. En este seminario se analizan las estrategias de comunicación de la NBA desde el momento en el que David Stern, en 1984, se puso al frente de la NBA hasta la actualidad. Los estudiantes de Comunicación aprenden las diferentes herramientas y estrategias que Stern implantó en la mejor liga de baloncesto del mundo durante sus treinta años de mandato, que coincidió con la irrupción del Dream Team, el equipo de superestrellas de la NBA que representó a EE.UU en los Juegos Olímpicos de Baloncesto, un ejemplo perfecto de marketing deportivo. El fin del mandato de Stern coincide con un cambio en los modelos tradicionales de comunicación, y la NBA es un ejemplo de cómo una liga deportiva se ha adaptado a los nuevos medios y a herramientas tan poderosas de difusión como las redes sociales.

Second year Communications student Sebastián Carmona Soto gives an up-close and personal interview of Iván Wong Veros from the Student Office of Segovia

It’s ten-past-three and I go up to the third floor of the IE University in Segovia and knock on Ivan Wong’s door. Of course he is talking to a student, this time about  maybe creating a workshop for Manga drawing. “Ivan, when can we talk? Remember we had a meeting at three?” He looks at his timetable on the computer “Oh yes, sorry.” He’s not usually late, but he is always doing things and talking to people, especially students, to talk about their ideas and thoughts. Like his co-worker Ana Martín says “He is an incredible PR, always willing to listen and dedicates a lot of time to the students. Sometimes there are students who are talking to him for hours and when I go and ask him, he says they just needed to talk to him.” 

Ivan Wong was born in England but when he was three years old his family moved to Vancouver, Canada. His mother is a Spaniard from Burgos and his father is from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but he grew up with the Chinese community there. Ivan lived in Vancouver until he went to Montreal to study Political Science in McGill university. When he finished his studies he realised he did not like it all too much and so went back home to Vancouver and worked for few years as advisor in a bank, until a friend told him to come with him to Asia to visit new countries. “I did something I don’t usually do, I took a risk”, Ivan says referring to his decision.

After dismissing the other student he was talking to, Ivan leads the way to a class on the second floor in which we were going to meet. He sits down in front of me and says “What do you want me to tell you?” He is a man who looks like he is in his late twenties or early thirties, he probably measures about 1,80m and has a decent amount of black hair on his head. His face looks Occidental with some Asian traits, like his slightly slanted eyes. He likes to walk around energetically, wearing jeans and a shirt. He describes himself as “an open-minded person tolerant, in general, but also impulsive and lacking patience. I like to encourage the spirit of being kind and sharing and I like to hear people’s opinions and respect people as I want to be respected myself.” His philosophical approach to life nowadays is “Push yourself, but have fun.”

He went with his friend to South Korea where they stayed as a base to journey around Asia and taught English in academies there. He was there for two years in which he met many people and gathered different experiences. He laughs when he remembers the differences in culture and things that surprised him there. “There they have public saunas and I would go with other teachers, most of us from Anglo-Saxon countries, and we felt super self-conscious with so many naked people in the saunas. Some of them are like tall buildings and there was one with a terrace on the attic. Of course it was divided for men and women, but only by a wall. And actually you could see that the wall could be climbed, so it had like war-time barbed wire on the top, so that the men would not try to peek onto the women’s side. There is also a very curious thing that they did, I suppose it’s cultural; they would brush each other’s backs, so they would form long lines of men and children brushing their backs!.” He laughs at the memory.

“In hobbies I am a sort of geek, I could say it a bit softer, that that’s what I am.” He has had many hobbies throughout his lifetime, and very varied ones also. He likes to do scuba-diving, which he has done in Vancouver, South Korea and Spain, but it has been a couple of years since he did it. He has also done golf and squash for some time. He likes skiing and he did climbing for a while. Nowadays he sings in a local choir; Coralia Artists, in the tenor section, because he says that bass is less varied. In a more indoor aspect, he likes to read and watch cinema, but he also loves videogames. He has been at it since he was young and he has a PC, and Xbox and a PS3 to play. His most recent hobby came to him not even three months ago. “It was almost like waking up one day and deciding my new hobby”, this new hobby is board games. He has actually purchased seven or eight different board games during this past couple of months, and planning on getting more. They are mostly thematic, such as Lords of Waterdeep, which is somewhat similar to Dungeons and Dragons but more strategic , or Descent (which is similar to the most famous Warhammer). He not only likes these games for the fun itself, but because he loves the quality of the crafting of the pieces. “Es que flipo,” he says in Spanish, “in videogames you do not notice it, but when you receive a heavy box, with all the details in it, I don’t know, I like it a lot.”

After his two years in South Korea he went to live to Spain where his family had moved to while he was away. He did different jobs as administrative and advisor (for example for Kraft) and he worked in Clifford Chance in accounting, but when the chance to work for IE University arose, he gladly took it because when he had been working in South Korea he had realised that he liked working with younger people and actually enjoyed the company of people who were younger than him “maybe because of my lack of maturity”. This is confirmed by the fact that he gets along very well with the students at the university, as Gonzalo Muelas, a 1st year Law student says “He’s the shit, really great as a person and with a sense of humour.” “He’s a big kid, with a peculiar sense of humour.” mentions Ana Martín, “He’s our [the department’s] baby.”

 Ivan is nowadays the coordinator of the extracurricular activities and also helps with the student office. He basically organizes the administrative and non-academic life of the students, like he says “If there is anything non-academic I probably have a hand in it.” “He is the best colleague you can ask for.” says Nicky Sharp, another co-worker, “He is there when times are hard, always willing to give a helping hand, he even takes me to the bus station.”

When the interview is finished he tells me that if he remembers anything else we will send me an email, and leaves because he had had an extra long day yesterday and he is leaving early today. Later on, while I interview his colleagues, I find that he hasn’t left still because he wanted to finish off some work.
