Bumok, the hidden face

of the iceberg,

illustrates what we were missing


managing talent:

the human factor.


After 20 years of research and working with people,
in 12 countries, using different languages ​​and communication styles,
managing international projects of high complexity,
we have reached the following conclusions:


The best professionals are those who help others
and the organization become the best version of themselves.


The human factor makes a difference in all relationships,
whether in sports, business, family
or at the workplace.


To identify, engage and retain talent, you have to understand and care for those who have it.


Talent doesn't have to do with age:
Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, Centennials ...
Talent is not inherited.
Talent is not exclusive to a territory.
Talent is a human gift, and it must be treated with humanity.


Olympic values:
the values of talent,
effort and preparation,
endurance and resilience
and the will to succeed and be better.

An example which summarizes our background and skills lays on the experience developed in the field of international sports broadcasting, through the assembling and development of high performance teams for the television production of the largest competition on the planet:

Planning and execution of complex HR projects in Canada, Singapore, United Kingdom, Russia, China, Norway, Brazil and the Republic of South Korea.

Cesar Riaño Bumok

César Riaño

Talent Hearthunter

Malagueño by birth, Sevillian by adoption and happy resident in Madrid (after living in other cities in Europe, Asia and America), along with his Uruguayan wife, Carmen, their daughter Olivia and their two adopted dogs, Clint and Flo.

Bilingual Spanish / English and passionate about the human side of professional relationships and the identification and development of talent. As an expert headhunter, he is especially motivated by complex profiles that are difficult to find and attract. He believes true engagement is finally achieved through the heart, rather than the mind ("head"); therefore, he considers himself a "Hearthunter".

Facilitator, teacher, coach, consultant and manager of international projects, Cesar decided to close his cycle as head of recruitment and training at the broadcast division of the International Olympic Committee (Olympic Broadcasting Services), to undertake his Bumok project, with the aim to support companies and professionals in the building of productive and trusting relationships with candidates and employees, where the human factor and its well-being play a performance-enhancing role, in an increasingly technological environment.
