J’ai testé (et recommande) les adresses toulousaines Les Collectionneurs

Connaissez-vous Les Collectionneurs (anciennement Châteaux & Hôtels Collection) ? Il s’agit d’un regroupement d’hôteliers et de restaurateurs indépendants, réunis dans un programme qui a pour ambition de devenir “la référence pour les voyageurs du monde de l’hôtellerie de charme et de la restauration gourmande“.

Je vous propose ici un avis personnel, subjectif (et non-rémunéré) sur les 4 adresses toulousaines du programme – 2 restaurants et 2 hôtels – que j’ai eu la chance de pouvoir tester (cela peut avoir du bon de voyager pour le travail). J’ai inclus aussi un petit bonus, non-loin de Carcassonne, idéal pour un week-end extra-toulousain !

Swallows (you’ll understand why…)

I am rocketing through the beautiful countryside of southern France – by train – as I start writing this monthly recap, reenergized by a couple of days in the sun! In this month of April I was very happy to see the news of eYeka’s (now dubbed “eÿeka”) acquisition by Insites Consulting being made public. It’s a great move for the crowdsourcing company whose creative community will now help Insites’ clients innovater better & faster. I also published a rather personal Medium post about balance in life. Continue reading →

In March: Kit Kat in Japan, Google in India & Elsevier in California

This month has unfortunately been overshadowed by the passing our my former colleague John, fellow crowdsourcing researcher who worked on the theory of Crowd Capital, and with whom we have explored the geography of Crowd Capital. He was a funny, smart and inspiring individual; may he rest in peace… I’m also sharing a dozen of articles that I found worthwile reading, starting with this fabulous NYT piece about KitKat in Japan.

This month, I am only sharing a single online article, one about academic research at Uber, and it dates back to October 2018 (it somehow showed up in my Twitter timeline last week). But besides, this month I just write about two books I have finished in February, one about economic warfare and another about information management, as well as a business speed-dating event format I have discovered: les BigBoss.

I loved “Five Dysfunctions of a Team” – What else would you recommend?

I’ve recently written about my first years as a manager, the satisfactions and difficulties, the doubts and achievements that come with it. I’m pretty open about it for 2 reasons. First: I’ve always liked sharing and writing, so why shun this subject? Second, I believe I can learn from those who read – and will react to – it both online and offline.

So let me write about this book I just finished, that I found absolutely brilliant. Those who have MBAs and/or are versed to management literature probably know it already; those who don’t (like me) should. And here’s why. Continue reading →
