Encuentro ROI Latinoamerica

roicancun

He aqui la razon por la cual no habia actualizado el Blog… andaba en Cancun.

La semana pasada se llevo a cabo el primer encuentro regional ROI para Latinoamerica. Habian unos 50 participantes en total.

Me dio mucho gusto poder ver de nuevo a varias personas y tener la oportunidad de conocer a muchas mas.

Aunque el evento merece un post mas largo… por lo pronto solo queria aprovechar para actualizar y dejar una liga a la presentacion del taller que di durante el encuentro.

Actualizacion:

En el sitio de ROI120 pueden leer reflexiones de Beto, Justin y Yoni (todos ellos parte del Staff) asi como ver algunas fotografías en Flickr.

ROI120: Panorama from HUC

I took this photo at the HUC in Jerusalem during the summit…

I’ll be writing a little more about the summit in general and I’ll try to be a little more specific about my track and all the awesome people from it.

ROI 120: Keynote with Shai Agassi

If you haven’t met Shai Agassi go ahead and read a little about him and his initiative.

We had the luck to hear him as a speaker in the kick off event and I must say that he is one of the best motivational speakers that I’ve heard… after five minutes you could tell that the only idea on everyone mind was: Wow! – This guy is really trying to save the world (and he might just do it).

It was a great start and after listening how he was working with the President Shimon Peres and the support from the same people that brought us all together, we all knew that we were in the right track.

I just wanted to take note of the questions he made us:

  • What are you passionate about?
  • What are your skills?
  • How can you combine them?

Now that’s food for thought!

En Vivo desde Israel: ROI 120

[English version after the spanish]

¡Hola a todos!

En estos momentos me encuentro en Jerusalem para un encuentro que reune a 120 personas de varias partes del mundo (27 paises de acuerdo al folleto que nos repartieron): ROI Summit 2008. En este evento se estarán discutiendo varios temas de interes para las diferentes comunidades judías por el mundo y se estarán exponiendo los diferentes proyectos en los cuales esta gente esta involucrada. Yo voy a presentar Jinuj.net.

Como parte del evento algunos participantes estaremos escribiendo al respecto (algo asi como reporteros ciudadanos) y en mi caso especifico estaré tratando de publicar algunas fotografías.

Asi que durante los proximos dias podran leer mi primer intento por hacerle de reportero… el unico detalle es que estaré escribiendo en Ingles con el fin de poner orgullosa a la Teacher y que el resto de los participantes puedan entender y de paso comentar al respecto.
