The importance of soft skills in the future of work

In this episode of How to be the Difference, Johanna and Paul sit down with Jose Caparroso, Business Reporter & Cross-Platform Editor at Forbes LatAm. He was previously a reporter for Grupo Semana in Colombia, and CNN in Espanol in the US.

He was also awarded with the Citi Journalistic Excellence Award in 2020, and the Ibero-American Economic Journalism Award in 2021.

Jose has had a short but powerful career. Starting from a young age participating  in radio shows, TV shows and newspapers, Jose didn’t hesitate to leave his first job in Colombia’s biggest newspaper to join CNN in the US as an intern. This opportunity not only accelerated his career in production and journalism but also gave him an international perspective

Back in Colombia, Jose detected that the news media coverage was concentrated on traditional companies from traditional industries, and there was a gap covering startup news. He started reporting news about tech and entrepreneurship, and began getting exclusive coverage and interviews with top CEOs.
