My guest on the show today was born in Spain in a small town outside Barcelona. Angel Ribo, known as the CEO Confidant, heads a consultancy for international business expansion and a charity teaching entrepreneurship to kids in Latin America.
Languages were an early factor in his future success, Spanish, Catalan, French, English and Portuguese.
He went to college in the big city of Barcelona to study Engineering and Computer Coding. College life was good; he got his degree but realised that it was not going to be his career.
During college, he volunteered at the 1992 Olympic games as part of the team managing the scoring and stats for the volleyball competition. That was where he discovered the joy of working in teams as part of a bigger project.
Out of college and having established software and coding were not for him, he looked for work, and the universe helped. He took on an International Relations’ role at his college, a perfect opportunity to use his language skills and travel.
The big break came when Angel was headhunted by an Audiovisual Projects company in Barcelona, more project and teamwork with creative professionals.
The Joy of Travel
His degree was put to good use in 1999 when he moved to the UK and found work with an international company selling Software and Training. Living in the UK and working for a US company opened the door to sales, networking and lots of travel.
Over the last 21 years, Angel has empowered more than 1,500 CEOs in 33 different countries. He is a Public Speaker, CEO Consultant, Board Member, Philanthropist and has lived in 8 countries.
Angel Ribo Has Two Missions In Life.
1) The non-profit Wisdom for Kids . There are 81 million children living in poverty in Latin America. “Wisdom for Kids” has already supported over 1000 families and half of his coaching fee goes straight to the organisation.
2) The second mission is connected to the first, and it is to inspire CEOs’ to give back to the world.
