I’m Daniel Rubio and this is my personal website.
I have been recently selected to join the United Nations Development Programme Joint Communications, Information Management and Outreach Unit in Bonn in June 2018. Before, I worked for the OECD Development Centre in Paris in projects related to development communication and the evaluation of awareness campaigns for the sustainable development goals. I have also participated in different international forums. Specialized in public policy analysis and public affairs, I have a growing interest in globalization, development, and policies aimed at reducing inequality.
In the past, I have held different entry-level and consultancy positions in the private sector in companies like Salesforce, Uniplaces or SAP for business development, sales or innovation projects.
STRONG ACADEMIC BACKGROUND
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in International Business from Universidad Europea and I have been a visiting student at McGill University. Currently, I am completing a Diploma in Marketing from the University of California, Berkeley. This year, I will also complete my second Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), specializing in European affairs and international political economy. This has been possible thanks to being awarded the Universidad Europea Academic Excellence Scholarship for three consecutive years (2015-2017) and Madrid’s Regional Government Academic Excellence Scholarship in 2017.
In 2015, I was the first-ever Spanish student to be selected to participate in the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in New York. This allowed me to present the live broadcast of the event to the over 1.000.000 students from the Laureate International Universities network in 29 countries. I interviewed political leaders like Julia Gillard, former Prime Minister of Australia, or policymakers like Madeleine Albright, former US Secretary of State, discussing topics such as education for development, international relations or gender equality.
MEDIA CONTRIBUTIONS, INTERVIEWS AND CONFERENCES
I have been quoted in The Washington Post and participated as a keynote speaker for El País con tu Futuro and Laureate International Universities in different education conferences. I have also been interviewed in websites for young professionals such as Talent Street to discuss how companies and organizations can relate to the new generations.
