The likes of Alexandre Dumas, Gautier, Borrow and even Albert Einstein have visited this town, and all looking for what people call…The magic of Toledo. The best way to visit Toledo in a day A little more than 70 kilometers from the center of Madrid on the hills of Castilla la Mancha sits the historic town of Toledo. Known for being the point that united three different religions, and Jews, Christians, and Muslims all lived together in peace. It was also the capital of Spain up until 1560 when it reached its natural limit. The capital was then moved to Madrid, and Toledo remained on its little hill untouched or tarnished until the 19th century. It is today considered a cultural town, and is a living record that expresses both the good, and the bad, the Spain kingdom has been through. But this is only the tip of the iceberg if you want to talk about how deep the history of this town really goes, and the magical sense you only get when you walk through its cobblestone streets. It is this magic that has made this tourist and historic destination so special. Undoubtedly, being a site with so much historical value and so many hidden places in its small cobblestone streets, seeing Toledo without the help of an expert can make your trip incomplete. Therefore we recommend taking a guided tour of the town, as did these Servantrip customers from the United States.

After this conversation the conference turned to a darker and worrying questions. Manuel and Students brought up the topic of the amount of human capital that will lose their jobs to technology. What solution do we have as human beings? Adapting as companies? As Darwin said: "It is not the strongest, nor the smarter the one who survives, but the one that adapts best to change". Innovation is unstoppable and without a doubt, the irruption of robotics and new technologies are going to completely change how we now live. But we mustn't think it is bad, the sooner we embrace this situation and start looking for the best way to adapt, the easier the transition will be! After some of the students who attended the conference had a question about how difficult it is to be an entrepreneur in Spain? Manuel Núñez answered that Spain has made a lot of progress regarding entrepreneurship, not only in the number of entrepreneurs but also in the quality of the projects. The crisis has become a trigger to make many people choose the path of setting up new businesses and thus leaving their comfort zone. Plus, some of the Spanish startups success stories have also helped boost entrepreneurship and generate a broader business ecosystem angels, venture capital companies, accelerators and venture builders. On the other hand, big brands have started to trust entrepreneurs, investing in those projects related to their sector with the goal of anticipating change and be closer to millennials! At last the question was asked on the role of education in that change of mindset? Or what is the main thing that could boost it? Easy! Education is a critical element to make adaptability to the change. In 10 years, a large part of the jobs we know today will cease to exist. That is why we should reconsider how the education model should be, so it allows new generations to live in an ever changing work environment. We are now facing the fourth industrial revolution. In the end of the XVII century it was the steam machine and this time it will be the autonomous systems and robots with IA the ones leading a radical transformation. We have to be prepared for the unimaginable and education is key in that transition!
