Who I am
I am Conxi Pérez Andreu, born in Barcelona in 1966, and if you ask me what my town is in my heart, I will tell you that it is Besalú (Girona), where part of my family comes from, and place to which I feel very linked, because I was living there for a long time in my childhood. And if you also ask me about another city that has amazed me in how it has changed and reinvented itself, it is Bilbao.
My will to act, from a professional point of view, is based on two aspects:
To be fully myself in order to contribute to building a better environment in the way that companies do. And to ensure that this will help, on the one hand, to achieve their results and sustainability, and on the other hand, to humanize them.
Link generations. I think the past is important, to learn from it and build a future. At the same time, understanding new opportunities, challenges, our young people … Being able to talk and listen between different generations and to understand each other I see it as very much needed.
My motto is that everything happens thanks to people, in every way. And I keep this in mind in everything I do.
My driving force is to contribute to the growth of companies and their sustainability, from the development of the people with whom I collaborate. Is to boost projects of change and transformation, with the use of new technologies and good change management. Otherwise, I think, a lot of time, money and effort can be wasted.
I am a person who lives what I do, with passion and always open to learn. Faithful to my humble origins, which have shaped my way of doing things and understanding life, and the family, to whom I thanks their unconditional support . And with energy to keep on growing every day: through our daily experience, through people, applying new knowledge, through culture and diversity in general.
My interest in mathematics and technology led me to study Computer Engineering, in the branch of Artificial Intelligence. Having had to combine my studies with working resulted in developing my concern for companies, to know them and to live them!, and then completing my knowledge at Business Schools. All this allowed me to make my dream of being an entrepreneur come true.
I think that in order to work well with people, as a true team, you have to have done some work on yourself, to know yourself. Watch yourself. Discover yourself. I think these are essential steps to know how to listen. Among many other things, something as simple as our own caricature can be an element of observation. I dare to share it with you!
