Executive Leadership Program - Lisbon Class 06

Elsa Courela
Head of Marketing, Sales, and Education
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Lisbon

I dedicated part of my professional life to developing fast-moving consumer goods in two of the biggest international food companies. Researching consumers' preferences and anticipating their needs and briefing and developing new products while defending and guaranteeing they were nutritionally balanced was a big and rewarding challenge. That was just the beginning of a journey that drove me to a bigger and broader challenge when I had the chance to join Oceanário de Lisboa and become part of a group of people that have in mind the importance of the ocean as the most valuable asset to guarantee the maintenance of life in our planet.

Therefore, my greatest challenge is to help raise awareness about the importance of the ocean and its conservation by promoting and organizing educational programs that lead to more conscious behaviors and decisions from everyone regarding the environment.
