Manos Valasis first went online in 1994 and hasn't disconnected since. His first work experience was in the Telecoms sectors, at its infancy in the early 00s, researching and developing for a telecoms provider. Later on, he moved to Brussels in order to lead the lobbying efforts of students towards the European Commission and the European Parliament and other major institutions and companies. After delivering training sessions in 21 different European countries, he came back to Greece to apply his experience in the fastest-growing online sector – that of digital marketing – working for OgilvyOne. In 2014, he became the General Manager of Socialab, having the challenging task of organizing the projects of 40+ executives daily.
