In 2015, I want to be working as a consultant manager, performing my job in a global environment company (letting me expand my network and keep learning from people from different cultures) specializing in strategy direction and financial management, which are the areas that create passion on my life and having enough experience that support me to perform an excellent job and let grow many companies and entrepreneurs that, in the same way that I do, look for changing the society in which we live.
When I was LCVP F&A, I faced troubles at the moment of managing the finance team; that was so complicated because we couldn’t schedule meetings and people don’t know much about AIESEC and mainly, Finance Management, and because of these, they were unmotivated.
Time Management Training

Clear Communication Commitment to the Team’s goals Culture of Excellence
I’m a person that performs a role with passion, looking not only for excellent results but also, for excellent processes that make the experience, projects and activities, unforgettable and really exceptional. I like to work as a team, look for creating a trust environment where members share tasks and feelings, where I can support and be supported by team mates, where they can give and receive feedbacks that let us improve and grow. Another contribution is my organization, communication, open mind and planning skills, which help to build a clear focus and orientation, that team follow up; it’s not only about the team has a clear path, but overall, this one be known by all members and keep measuring it during all the execution, getting clear communication channels that been accessible for team members.

During my first month such as EB member, I had conflict with a team mate, who was dissatisfied by the way how I give feedbacks; it was so uncomfortable and hindered the communication flow between the team. So, I decided to talk with them and asked him why he acted like that, what were the reasons and talked to find a solution. The change was great for both, because he understood that my feedback weren’t focused to hurt and I could to learn to give feedback to different kind of person, developing awareness of other competency and contributing in a good way to the improvement as of the team as of my teammates.
Como miembro de un equipo, siempre buscamos lo mejor para el mismo, por ende, cuando se que tengo la solución a un problema o una idea increíble y muy efectiva que le ayudara mucho al equipo, siempre busco: • • • • •
Conseguir los argumentos necesarios para soportar mi idea (documentación, casos similares, teorías) Analizar los diferentes caminos y compararlos con la idea que propongo Mostrar cuales serian los beneficios al implementarla y desventajas al no hacerlo Escuchar la opinión de los miembros del equipo y aclarar sus dudas Finalmente, llegar a un consenso, en el que buscaría que la idea sea el eje central de la decisión (Pero si algún miembro tiene una idea mucho mejor y mas argumentada, buscaría complementarla con la mía, siendo un aporte y no un obstáculo)
To Design new strategies and tools in the role. To have Weekly Plan and releasing of the same. Constant Tracking to my tasks Perform Product Development Activities Commitment to my own development Mentorship To get new partnerships and supporting the same initiative in other areas.

AIESEC es un mundo de oportunidades que debes vivir y aprovechar al máximo, con pasión y compromiso. Desde el primer momento que ingrese a la organización supe que esta iba a cambiar mi vida, a ofrecerme herramientas para desarrollar competencias y habilidades que tenia, pero dudada en si del potencial de las mismas. A lo largo de estos 3 años, he vivido diferentes roles,he trabajado con personas que han aportado a mi crecimiento y a quien he aportado en la misma forma, alcanzando resultados tangibles, pero sobre, satisfacción de ser el cambio que queremos ver en la sociedad. Pero como se que aun me hace falta mucho más para vivir y disfrutar AIESEC, quiero continuar mi ruta de aprendizaje y desarrollo, a otro nivel, uno mas retante, siendo MC de AIESEC en España, experiencia, que sin la menor duda, dejara una huella imborrable en mi futuro. ¿Por qué quiero ser MC de AIESEC en España? Sintetizar en 2 razones, todo lo que me motiva a aplicar es complicado, pero aquí voy: Desarrollo Profesional y Personal: Siendo parte del Comité Miembro, podre poner practica conocimientos teóricos acordes a mi profesión, a la vez, desarrollar competencias, mentalidad estratégica, habilidades de entrenamiento y gestión de equipo, los cuales serán un soporte invaluable para mi futuro profesional (como consultor) y personal (como agente de cambio)
Impacto en la red: España es un país que tiene un potencial enorme tanto en membresia , como en oportunidades empresariales listas para capitalizar, pero aun esta en crecimiento, y es esto lo que me motiva, quiero ser parte de ese crecimiento, compartir mi experiencia con la actual y futura membresia, trabajar de forma constante y apasionada, por los resultados y el estado ideal de este país, logrando no solo un incremento en intercambios, sino también, siendo esto lo más importante, en experiencias de alta calidad, que realmente hayan generado aprendizaje y cambien la vida de cada miembro, dejando huella en la sociedad.

18. What do you know about legality? Tell us about your knowledge and practical experience in:
Associations’ legality Migration Labor contracts and law
I studied International Business, which gave me preparation about laws and legal environment around business field. Associations' legality: Knowledge about different kind of association, legal procedures, Taxes that must pay and exemptions. Roles: Summer Job, LCVP F&A, Project Manager. Migration: Being LCVP F&A, I received trainings about this topic respect to Colombian law. I support this process on X area.
Labor Contracts and law: In this field, working as accounting assistant during summers, I learnt about contract law, taxes, normal conditions, requirements.

Financial Crisis: According to some financial analysts comments about the financial crisis issue, the way to overcame it, has started. The Grow Economy Forecast for Spain this year, will be is 0, 4%
Sustainable Development: Enterprises, Government and Society in general, are focused on environmental problems, care and solutions, finding sustainable productions way and life style that contribute to this change.

Well, first of all, in order to avoid this kind of problems, it's necessary to spread knowledge and key learning points about spanish taxes' law, and legal themes in general, through:
MY SUGGESTION TO LCVP
National Training Sessions: Training Activities supported by Externs and Partners (around this topic) that let prepared Finance leaders at local level about this kind of issues.
AIESEC in Spain is registered as NGO, but there isn't a specific and clear legislation that covered this kind of organization , in a effective and beneficial way. The exemption doesn't cover us to avoid pay this tax, so, you have to include it in the invoices to partnerships and sell of TNs.
National Finance Team: A constant team that support and guide Finance Leaders in legal and financial decisions.
You should talk to TN Taker and explain why about your doubts, apologize and generate another invoice, including this tax. Key learning points:
Guides and Models: Documentation and literacy about legal procedures that facilitate Finance leaders role.

Get advices if you don't know how you can and must do it, Avoid Mistakes!! Don't do anything about any procedure if you don't have a clear knowledge, it's much better, say: I don't have this information but if you can let me, I can send it to you by email or in another meeting" than guarantee something that generate, not only more expenses for AIESEC and losing of a partnership.
