Roberto Santiago: Developer of the Majestic Manaira Shopping Mall

One of the consequences of a growing Brazilian economy for the last couple of decades has been an increase in the amount of disposable income among its citizens. Naturally, therefore, people want to buy more. Businessman Roberto Santiago was among the first to come to this realization and predicted that the retail sector would undergo considerable growth. Consequently, he took a risk and decided to open up a shopping mall, Manaira Mall. Developed in 1989 and again developed in 2013 and 2014, the Manaira Mall is one of the largest and aesthetically pleasing shopping spaces in the country.

The Manaira Mall is considered the crown jewel of its home city of Jao Pessoa. This is quite a commendable feat especially because Jao Pessoa is a highly developed area and contains numerous other competing malls. The 135,000 square-meter mall is undisputedly the largest in the city and two approximately two years to construct. Its high standing among shopping malls in the country has seen it play host to the flagship stores of some huge local and international brands. As a result of this and more, millions of people walk through the mall’s doors every year.

The recreational experience offered by the Manaira Mall is unrivaled. For those taking a break or uninterested in the shopping, there is a large movie area that contains 11 cinema rooms, three of which offer 3D viewing. For the younger visitors at the mall, there is an exclusive game zone while adults can also play at a provided bowling station. The dining experiences offered at the mall are also quite diverse. In addition to a food court area, there are also a number of restaurants within the mall that offer fine dining experiences.

Manaira Mall has the amenities to go with the quality services offered. In total, there are 3,180 parking vacancies at the mall. Given the mall’s popularity, it is not uncommon to see the parking area filled to near full capacity. Additionally, it has an eight thousand-capacity concert hall located on its roof. The hall has previously been used to host art exhibitions, concerts, corporate events, parties and theatrical performances. Further, the mall also has within its confines a gym, a number of banks and the College of Higher Education of Paraiba.

Roberto Santiago’s entrepreneurial excellence does not just stop at the Manaira Mall. He also owns other shopping malls with his first being the Mangabeira Shopping Mall. Additionally, being one of the most respected businessmen in the country, he holds numerous other investments in other sectors. Particularly, he also operates in the entertainment and real estate industries. Further, he has been known to dabble in the stock exchange from time to time.

Nathaniel Ru; Revolution in the Food Industry

While they were in their senior year, Nathaniel Ru and his friends realized that they were having a difficult time locating a place to eat. After six years, they started the eatery. The space they chose was not so far from where they stayed.

The landlord at first did not seem to buy the idea. However, after they had pushed for a while, they had a meeting. The landlord bought into the idea and told them to find an architect and someone who would help them come up with a real plan. Ru said that he is thankful that she gave them the opportunity even when she had doubts.

Sweetgreen is what they decided to call the restaurant. Now the business keeps growing and has stores in the main cities in the Northeast. They continue to offer healthy and fresh food. Most of the ingredients they use come from the local farmers. The store just markets itself. The owners believe that the number of stores they have should not change the quality and the core values the business holds.

Ru claims that the best financial results that they get usually come from the stores where the employees have been working together with the longest. Therefore, the owners try to ensure that the customers and staff have great experiences. He believes that even though we are in the digital era, the personal marketing is usually the best one.

Sweetgreen also has an annual Sweetlife Festival. The Festival goes on for two days. There is usually food and music. The festival mostly features local restaurants and some big-name artists and chefs.

Every year, the festival usually has an attendance of more than 20,000 individuals. The festival embraces the idea of health, good living, and well-being. The event leaves the footprint of a party that has a purpose.

According to Wikipedia, Nathaniel Ru is a co-founder Sweetgreen, a restaurant that offers seasonal, simple, and healthy food. He has been acknowledged as a great innovator when it comes to business and food. He has a love for design and is the head of the original section of the brand. He is the one that oversees the feel and looks of the restaurants that Sweetgreen has.

Nathaniel Ru was born in Pasadena, CA. He went to school at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business. He got a BS in finance in the year 2007. Here, is where he met his friends Nicolas Jammet and Jonathan Neman.

Nathaniel Ru and His Success

Sweetgreen has revolutionized the way fast food is done. Their recipe for success must be working, since the lines stay long in their 40 stores. The goal is to feed more people better food, and they do just that with the freshest, local produce. Sweetgreens co-founders have also revolutionized the way fast food does business with technology. Almost 30% of their transactions are done through their app or web site. Others are starting to follow suite.

 

In addition to their innovative technology strategies, Sweetgreen also reimagined the way businesses do management. Several times per year the management office closes down, so the managers can work in the restaurant. Sweetgreen co-founders want to keep their managers grounded and in tune with what is going on in the restaurant. Also, they keep the company bi-coastal, so they can keep up to date on what is going on. Nathaniel Ru spoke to fortune.com in a recent interview about some of the things he would do differently and some things that worked for him.

 

He would first tell his younger self to read more books. Also, he would not do every role in the company. The young trio made the mistake of taking on too much responsibility. Team building is important to any company, and helps to ensure everyone stays productive.

 

Nathaniel Ru, Jonathan Neman and Nicolas Jammet all met while at Georgetown University during an entrepreneur class. They bonded immediately, since all three have first generation immigrant parents who have started their own business. Like any good businessmen, they saw a need in the Georgetown area, healthy eating that is quick and convenient. In August 2007, they opened their first restaurant after graduation. The first store met a milestone when they survived the first winter break with an empty campus.

 

Sweetgreen seems to have found the factors to their success. Through high quality and local produce, they serve their customers the best salads available. They have transformed the way chain restaurants do business by the use of technology and management strategies. Sweetgreen has helped customers eat better and live better. They continue to grow and expand their restaurants.

Copa Star Hospital Blends Luxury Care With Modernized Medicine

The upscale Copa Star Hospital, touting luxury patient rooms, gourmet food choices, luxurious amenities, and high-tech integration opened amid fanfare in Rio. The hospital is a 11,000 square foot hospitality center that specializes in neurological, cardiac, and neonatal services, that were featured in a post here.

At a cost of $400 million, the upgrades are not only focused on comfort, but efficient patient-centered recovery. New features includes 24/7 access to lab results and complete medical records, customized care programs, and user-friendly technology that has been integrated into the hospital's daily services that enhance care. Administrators have also focused on the importance of telemedicine.

Medical care has evolved over the years, and today hospitals are combining medicine with technology and communications. What is telemedicine? It is medical care at a distance. Everything from medical consultations in real time to performing computerized care via robotic technology is offered. And telemedicine offers many benefits at Copa Star Hospital.

  • Using telemedicine through videoconferencing offers the ability to convene a meeting of specialists who are geographically distant from each other
  • Telemedicine can help assess or assist in the medical evaluation of a patient
  • The academic use of medical videoconferencing can benefit doctors, whereas a teacher can educate a group or several groups of students who are distant geographically or in different teaching scenarios.

Besides the obvious benefit to the patient, the use of telemedicine provides an excellent opportunity to lower costs and control the disadvantages of human resources. Copa Star Hospital also implemented robotics, another useful tool in medicine.

Robotics is very useful in medicine because it enables doctors to get where the human eye cannot. This technology compensates for any deficiencies and limitations of a surgeon, especially when it comes to invasive surgery techniques. Rather than take over, surgical robotics balances work for the surgical team. For example, laparoscopy uses surgical methods with robotic arms for cases where the intervention level is low and the recovery of the patient is to be made in the shortest possible time.

Overall, when using robotics, not only is intervention performed much more accurately, but recovery is much faster. In addition, physicians say the use of robots reduces the hospital stay, reduces operating trauma, and benefits the cosmetic impact to the patient. Visit their profile page on Facebook.

Copa Star Hospital certainly has developed a new dimension for patient care and recuperation. The hospital offers a perfect blend of refined serenity and comfort, with top-notch medical care.
