Alexandre Barata
Communication Consultant
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Lisbon

Making things happen is what I like the most.

Listening, thinking, having ideas, organizing, developing, making things happen, and, above all, helping to create and develop new projects and to update some already-existing ones is my great motivation.

Since childhood, observation has always been one of my strengths – hence, my interest in reality, in the news. It was something I applied in many of the reports I did as a journalist. As a Press Advisor and now as a Communication Consultant, I have become better acquainted with certain media and able to design strategies for communication and dissemination of projects and initiatives.

In the government, I worked in the areas of tourism, social security, and employment, which gave me another vision and knowledge about these three sectors and their potential. Working for city halls brought me the local vision, being close to people and seeing how small ideas and projects can greatly help populations.

In 2017, I decided to change my life and start working on my own in various projects related to Strategic Advising. I began to practice yoga, bringing me more awareness and helping my own inner construction. I love photography, and I love to photograph nature and its landscapes. I like to look at the world, see opportunities, and think differently.
