On Monday 9 February, Nóvalo was in charge of the consecutive interpreting service during the various communications presented in the event “Connect to solve: social innovation from Europe”, celebrated at La Noria social innovation centre, subordinate to the Malaga Provincial Council. The aim of the event was primarily identifying innovative solutions to the needs of the region.
Our colleague Catherine (see picture below), conference interpreter, was in charge of building the communication bridges among the speakers and the attendants to the event; she carried out her duty in a professional and rigorous manner, receiving compliments from the organization itself. A professional translation and interpreting service is a key factor to be successful during any event planning and organisation, above all when issues of top relevance are discussed.
With regards to the topics addressed during the event, the initiative can be included within the project named “La Noria conectada” (“La Noria connected”), fostered by the Malaga Provincial Council and Obra Social “La Caixa” (“La Caixa” Community Work), with the collaboration of Young Foundation, from the United Kingdom, and the “Movimiento Idun” (“Idun Movement”). These are organisations of international level inthe promotion of public debate, entrepreneurship encouragement and social implementation.
The first speakers were Indy Johar, architect and Hub Westmister and SOLVE social impact investment fund founder, and Gorka Espiu, “Ciudades y Regiones” director, both members of the Young Foundation organisation.
Other speakers were Ginés Haro, entrepreneur and social entrepreneurship and innovation trainer, with a vast international experience and “Movimiento Idun” founder, as well as Maria Do Carmo, head of the Consortium – Initiative for the Civic Economy Portugal.
Later on, there was a time to discuss matters about the “Social Innovation from the Spanish Public Administration”. This time, the speaker was Manuel Arenillas, director of the Spanish National Institute for Public Administration, and it was conducted by Ana Mata, deputy president of the provincial institution.
In the part dedicated to “Funding and Investment”, three main speakers participated: Filippo Addarii, Chris Dadson and Sergio Murillo. Filippo Addarii is chief strategist and director of the Young Foundation European Lab, and member of the expert panel of the European Commission and the Italian Government in Social Entrepreneurship. Sergio Murillo is general manager of the Social Service Department at the Vizcaya Provincial Council. And Chris Dadson represented the Social Investment Fund (United Kingdom).
Nóvalo is proud to collaborate in the dissemination of knowledge, building communication bridges among different languages in any sort of event. In a global economy in which internationalisation plays an key role, the multilingual communication strategies of companies and public institutions must meet the most demanding expectations, both in terms of translation and interpreting, but we should not forget other relevant topics such as multilingual SEO, web localisation or multilingual digital marketing and communication.
