Ms. Francesca Cocozza
I was born and raised in Italy. Since I was 16, I have been traveling to different parts of the world and have continuously been inspired through communicating with people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. I started my educational career with Bachelor of Arts and a Masters of Arts in Conference Interpreting and Translation. Later, I went on to work for the Council of Europe, and then for the Italian Government and UN Agencies, I decided to learn more on international politics and diplomacy while specialising in Diplomatic Studies and International Relations (MAs). Before I was 25, I lived and studied in Spain, USA, France, Ireland and United Kingdom.Before completing my studies, I started working in the private, public and humanitarian sectors. I have a vast experience in food safety and security to maritime safety and counter piracy measures in the Horn of Africa as member of the Italian Delegation to the International Maritime Organization, diplomatic protocol, and procedures while working at the Italian Embassy of London, to name a few.
In 2012, I joined the Dubai-based office of NRS International as Business Development and Sales Manager. I spend 75% of my time traveling to different parts of Africa, Europe and Latin America; not just establishing the commercial network but also to attend international symposiums to share and discuss the best measures on malaria prevention and control and improvement of core relief items. I joined a company that is driven by passion for research and innovation, emergency response, and development.
What makes me feel proud every day is to see how people benefit from the products we offer and the knowledge and experience we bring. We cooperate with aid agencies, national governments, as well as private companies driven by and committed to a common vision – to make the world a better place for people who need help the most.
