In all projects I worked, I make an effort to demonstrate a “tangible” added value of working together and implement solution. Transnational level cooperation projects have the potential to exchange transfer and learning and give the opportunity to make use of the creative potential of working an intercultural level. In my last European project, I was working to foster the exchange experiences, identify good practices from Yecla and to strengthen the practical knowledge and skills of Yecla Municipality in the policy area related to local economic development, human capital skills, employment and foster entrepreneurship, addressed by the network in the transnational meetings.

B3. Assessment:

Expertise for the design and delivery of transnational exchange and learning activities:
C.3.1. Ability to communicate complex concepts to non-English speakers: 
I try to adjust my communication style ( verbal and non-verbal) depending my audience , When I communicate cross-culturally, I make particular efforts to keeping my communication clear and simple. During last four year I had to drive seminars and workshops in a cross-multinational level (transnational meetings into Wood foot print project, Copenhagen final conference, driven lectures at Wittenborg university) . What’s is works using different media tool help me to reinforce the massage using tools and PowerPoint or Prezzi presentations , video and other multimedia tools. Finally I try to get the feedback of my audience to verify if everything is understood.
C3.1 Assessment: 
1 - Provided one example that demonstrates ability to communicate complex concepts to non-English speakers
C.3.2. Ability to draw out, support the verbalization and documentation of knowledge and practice from participants: 
In the last project where I work we had to produce some case studies to help the partnership to identify examples of good practice under the topic “skills and employment”. This subject focuses on new ideas and techniques to aid the workforce in finding a job. Has a mention before we were the leader in this area, focusing on new ways of helping entrepreneurs and intrapreneur. I promote to examples: The TEAM ACADEMY report, this is a teaching model called “The way to create and entrepreneur”, where vital skills are taught. Every candidate, the team and coach (they are not teachers) must carry out a self-assessment on their own progress. The idea is to set up a se¬ries of values by and for the clients which will form the backbone of model. There are two other important factors to be tak¬en into consideration: the development of the individual and the team. The three factors work to together to highlight the importance of leadership. Lastly, two fac¬tors are fixed: Finance and Management. Natural leadership skills will be identified. The students – entrepreneurs exchange their ideas and experiences over several days within the seminars along with the coaches and guest experts. Other example was the program “COME HOME” case study. A special program designed for stu¬dents, who have finished their degree, which allows them to return to their home towns and cities to participate in entrepreneurial programs, work experi¬ence and other workshops designed for local needs.
C3.2 Assessment: 
1 - Provided two examples that demonstrate the ability to draw out, support the verbalization and documentation of knowledge and practice from participants to enable comparison, exchange, peer review, etc
C.3.3. Ability to capture learning for participants to take away: 
The best practices capture from transnational meetings: The Birch House case study, where has adapted abandoned warehouses into small workshops with the idea of creating mini-factories and, therefore, creating employment. It is be¬coming known as an incubator for fur-niture company workshops, where the self-employed can build their own com¬panies, creating a cluster of like-minded individuals. The Fab Lab case study is a laboratory within Birch House, housing all of the necessary technology to develop new products: prototypes, 3d printers etc. Fab Lab is run by engineers and technicians who provide courses, to all of the self-employed within Birch House, detailing the development of new products and prototypes that can then be sold to other companies or to the pub¬lic. There has also been the suggestion of creating an online marketplace which would help in the commercialization of the products made in Birch House or created in Fab Lab. This idea has been brought to us by the City of Viborg in High Monaghan in October 2013. At the beginning, the municipality of Yecla was not really engaged in WFP. Then The Municipality asked me to participate in the first transnational meeting hold in 2012, in High Wycombe, to bring them some information about the challenge project and how it works. I made a meeting report and I submit to the Mayor and the municipal corporation. This report helped to engage Yecla Municipality and become them in ones of the best partners in the project.
C3.3 Assessment: 
1 - Provided two examples that demonstrate the ability to capture learning for participants to take away (also visible from E.1)
C.3.4. Ability to produce concise reports that incorporate good practices and policy messages: 
In WFP, I had the responsibility to design and produce two key outputs; Yecla Local action plan where I describe The main reason for Yecla’ s participation in the WFP was to find new uses for the Furniture Fair Complex which was only used once a week in the year and was therefore semi-redundant. However the challenges faced by the town were far greater. Yecla, with nearly 35,000 inhabitants, combined with a poor level of transport networks, has been badly af¬fected by the economic crisis. Other one was the transnational meeting report, where we describe all transnational seminars, the exchange and learning, activities, partners, outputs from external expert speakers, Site visits, Peer review exercises etc. In 2011, Yecla Municipality asked me elaborate a strategy plan to implement actions in the city to promote employment. I focus the report on Yecla have a potential to develop their tourism and furniture talent but Yecla has less visibility in the overall due to their size. I was exchanging knowledge and experiences from other similar cities and I suggest the implementation of sustainable policies and strategies Yecla to help to their economic growth through tourism and furniture sector. After this report, Yecla open an a business incubator where Yecla help entrepreneurs start new business, focus in tourism and furniture sector and an several workshop to help unemployment people increase their employability in tourism and furniture.

This plan is an excellent example how adapts tools and content to local level. For example one action is to create a balanced (Private / Public) company that can meet the de¬mands for local investments. To design this action inspire me in the case study of PFR INVEST which is a public company run by the private sector in Portugal, whose primary goal is to attract private investment in Pazos de Ferreira. This is done by using a spe¬cialized professional team that works with new investors by offering land and infra¬structure so that new companies can be set up in the area. A professional team would need to be as¬sembled to manage the National and Eu¬ropean funds available. We create this action with the main purpose would be to attract local private and pub¬lic investment. The team would be formed from the private sector, earning limited margins through management and sales. This idea comes from trips made to Viborg in High Wycombe and Pazos de Ferreira in October 2013.
