Although the economy is still in a difficult situation and I don’t dare to predict or forecast how it’ll be for 2013, I already know that for me, as an OR-er will be a promising year. During these years I have been nurturing leads and building my reputation and skills: that’s called investment; I hope 2013 will be the year when a return will be seen.
I don’t know if you are aware, but last October I moved to London, where I’m lecturing Economics in a sessional basis at GSM London. At the same time, I’m trying to feed a new company, Business Research & Applications, devoted to the application of OR to the small businesses; at the moment I’m focused in the mobile app development. Further, I’m engaging in a very entertaining project related to social media strategy (I’ll talk to you in the following months about it).
And, of course, I can’t forget my Spanish work-in-progress with SocialMediaBlog.es about Social Media ROI, with K|P|K and Econcult about Impactrimonio, and my PhD thesis about the economic value of culture.
So, don’t you think 2013 seems promising?
