Elena Allegretti è un’esperta di marketing, comunicazione e trasformazione digitale. Cresciuta in Puglia, la sua curiosità e ambizione l’hanno portata a trasferirsi all’estero giovanissima, completando i suoi studi presso alcuni degli istituti più prestigiosi in America e in Europa, tra cui la Georgia State University ad Atlanta, dove si è laureata in Economics & Public Policy, e la ESCP Europe Business School a Parigi, dove ha conseguito un Master in Management specializzandosi in modelli di business circolari.

On the other hand, her passion for corporate management led her to cover positions in the administrative area of an accounting firm as well as of companies from different sectors…and that is how she finally ended up taking care of Disal Consulting’s administrative office since its foundation.
In her spare time, she enjoys surfing and “working” as vice curator of Global Shapers Bari – an initiative of the World Economic Forum – where she is involved in projects that create a significant economic, social and political impact in the city where she grew up.

During this period, he also began taking his first steps at Disal Consulting, contributing to a project aimed at assessing the impact of geospatial technologies on the economy of Africa.
His desire "to know the causes of things" later led him to London, where he had the opportunity to engage with some of the brightest minds in the field of economic sciences, enriching his critical thinking and developing an exceptional academic rigor and attention to details.
However, often understanding something is not enough; one needs the right skills to convey the message effectively, clearly, and memorably. Motivated by this thought, after the 9 months in London, Alessandro returned to Disal Consulting. Currently, he is involved in strategy, impact analysis, and communication for private companies and international organizations.
