Sharing Excellence in Parking & Mobility Management

Perspective (Waayib)

Welcome to “WAAYIB.” In the Mayan language of ancient Central America, this word means “The Dreaming Place.”

For the Maya of Central America, the time and place of sleep was revered as the refuge of the supernatural, as if one was visiting a sacred temple in search of enlightenment and reinvigoration.

In “WAAYIB,” creative inspiration could arise from within one’s self, or be a revelation from ancestors or deities. This inspiration was only possible when one put away the worries of the day and surrendered control over ones thoughts to the starry night sky.

In "WAYYIB", or "The Dreaming Place" of sleep, ancient Mayans believed revelations about the future could be experienced (Glyph is courtesy of Inga Calvin, "The Hieroglyphic Decipherment Guide," 2012.)

As Latin America is the focus of our services, we reflected upon this concept as a way to present our thoughts on ourselves and on serving the Public Customer. We should not take ourselves so seriously that we cannot enjoy what we do. Nor should we take our Public Customers so lightly that we cannot empathize with their troubles.

The Public Customer, especially in transportation settings, often has little or no choice in transportation options. In many cases, we are not competing for the business of Public Customers as if we were in a market. Rather, we are dictating to the customer how they will receive the service we are providing.

This shift of power from the customer to us should place a special burden on those of us in Mobility Management. Because when this shift occurs, the Public Customer becomes a Captive Customer.

For us, “The Dreaming Place” is a time to enjoy our profession of helping people reach their destinations in life. It is a place to be sensitive to the wants and desires of the Public Customer. It is thinking about how to free the Captive Customer.

We have the knowledge and power to improve the quality of transportation services the Public Customer receives. Let us share our knowledge with our peers and our power with our customers.

Join us here in “The Dreaming Place” for the way things could be or should be. Let us imagine . . . or re-imagine transportation service.

Sue Flack Joins H2H2H Foundation’s LatAm Outreach Team

(En español, abajo)

The H2H2H Foundation proudly welcomes Sue Flack, an expert in parking and transportation, as a new member of our cutting-edge translation team. A native English speaker, she resides in Nottingham (the city of Robin Hood) in the United Kingdom (UK).

Sue originally trained as a land use planner, but soon broadened her perspective to include both transport and planning in London and Nottingham. She holds Masters’ degrees in Business Administration (MBA) and in Urban and Regional Planning.

Leading the development of Nottingham’s ground-breaking workplace parking levy (a charge on workplace parking, which provides finance for sustainable transport initiatives and discourages car commuting), Sue later became Director of Planning and Transport at Nottingham City Council. She has also consulted on international projects and since 2016 has advised local authorities in the UK on transport strategies.

In 2017, she was awarded a degree in Modern Language Studies (Spanish and French) and is currently enjoying a part-time, post-graduate course in Translation Studies.

Sue’s unique combination of transport and parking expertise, alongside language and translation abilities, will add to the resources of H2 and play an important role in its worldwide expansion.

The H2H2H Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to “sharing excellence in mobility management”, which includes promoting best practices in the administration of parking and transportation facilities. We also advocate for transportation consumers and advance alternative mobility options, such as car sharing, bicycling, carpools and many others. You can learn more about our efforts and ways you can advance the cause of “mobility sustainability” at www.h2h2h.org.

La Fundación H2H2H le da una calurosa bienvenida a la Sra. Sue Flack, un experto en estacionamiento y transporte, a nuestro equipo puntero de traducción. Sue, que es hablante nativa de inglés, reside en Nottingham (la ciudad de Robin Hood) en el Reino Unido (UK).

Al principio, estudió urbanismo antes de ampliar su perspectiva para incluir ambos transporte y urbanismo en Londres y Nottingham. Tiene maestrías en la administración de negocios (MBA) y en planeamiento urbano y regional.

Era la figura prominente en el desarrollo del innovador iniciativo ‘impuesto de estacionamiento del lugar de trabajo’ (el impuesto financia proyectos de transporte sostenible y también desalienta la conmutación de coches) y después se convirtió en Directora de Urbanismo y Transporte en Nottingham. También trabajó como consultora internacional y desde 2016 aconseja gobiernos locales en el Reino Unido sobre estrategias de transporte.

En 2017 obtuvo un titulo en Estudios de Lenguas Modernas (español y francés) y hoy está disfrutando de un curso post grado de medio tiempo en traducción.

La combinación única de Sue en cuanto a su experiencia de transporte y estacionamiento además de su capacidad en lenguas y traducción aumentará los recursos de H2 y ella desempeñará un papel importante en la expansión mundial de la organización.
