Next Generation Leaders


Laura Brazil.png

I am an entrepreneur and event project manager with a background in engineering. I pursue projects with social impact and a strong purpose, such as an initiative to provide donated clothes to needy people, which spread all over Brazil. When I design events, I want them to become really special occasions that can be like small revolutions in participants’ lives. In order to create a better world, I think we need to start with changing ourselves. I try to do that by placing kindness in every interaction of my life.

I am an entrepreneur with roots in journalism who has worked communication of sustainability for over twenty years. Currently, I’m the CEO of a Brazilian PR agency called Profile, which only works with companies looking for positive impact in what they do. I love to look for the intersection between knowledge and spirituality to better understand our role on this planet, and I seek to connect ancient knowledge to today’s challenges.

I am founder and creative director of Altos Eventos, a company that designs event user experience. With passion for events, I began to study Strategic Design and decided to use several Service Design tools to enhance experiences in events. An entrepreneur since 2010, I have worked with clients such as Google, Mozilla Firefox, Ambev, Givaudan, ThoughtWorks Brasil, AKQA and Melitta Brasil. I have also kicked off projects in Brasil such as Startup Weekend, LeanStartup Machine, PechaKuchaNights and Failcon - all of them in Porto Alegre – and I host CreativeMornings-SãoPaulo. I have a degree in Marketing and a certificate in Design for Social Impact by School of Visual Arts from New York.

I am the founder of Learning by Doing - an educational initiative based in São Paulo, focused on children between 3 and 11 years old. We teach English through hands-on activities and foster critical and creative thinking and the development of autonomy. I am also a lead educator of the Swarovski Waterschool, which creates an environment for children to become leaders who protect water by ensuring access to clean water at schools and sustainable use of water, proper sanitation and hygiene. For more than ten years, I worked as a volunteer at CISV International - a global non-profit organization dedicated to educating and inspiring children and teens for peace.
