In May, San Telmo assumed the organization of activities led by the Timoney Leadership Institute

Since the beginning of the collaboration between both institutions, the month of May has been chosen to transfer to the Instituto Internacional San Telmo the hosting of two highly relevant activities: the penultimate module of the ALP Program (Advanced Leadership Program) and an annual event to which all former alumni of the ALP are invited.


Thus, on May 16 and 17, the ALP module was held at the San Telmo offices in Seville, where 50 Irish participants had the opportunity to discuss cases and interchange viewpoints with professors Luis Huete, Asís Martínez-Jerez, from the Notre Dame University and Juan Martínez Barea. A Timovisit was also organized to the Coca-Cola Iberian Partners bottling plant, along with complementary leisure activities, including a guided tour of the city and a private flamenco show.

On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the ALP Program, a very special agenda was arranged for the group of alumni who participated in the annual trip organized for them on May 24 and 25. On this occasion, the theme focused on the impact that innovation, technology and disruption will have on companies and their continuity in the future scenario. The event began in Malaga, with an insightful visit to the Technological Park of Andalusia and presentation of two companies with a presence in the park: Aertec Solutions -a multinational engineering and consulting company specialized in aeronautics- and Neueda- a provider of digital solutions and consulting. After this, Manuel Domínguez de la Maza, CEO of Mayoral, outlined a case study on succession in family businesses at the headquarters of San Telmo Malaga.

The following day in Seville, the group was impressed by the series of lectures and discussion groups led by Tom Raftery, SAP Global Vice President and Prof. Juan Martínez Barea, who gave their overview on the entrepreneurial outlook and the bearing that technological advances are having. Likewise, the Uber case was discussed and María Jesús Almazor, CEO of Telefónica España, closed the day with a conversation that invited reflection on innovation in companies.
