Ailson J. De Moraes - Speaker

St Martin’s Institute of Information Technology hosted international academic Ailson de Moraes who held workshops with St Martin’s students and delivered a public lecture during which he discussed the Maltese international economic development strategy. This was one of a series of public lectures held by St Martin’s Institute throughout the year.

Mr de Moraes is a professional in the fields of management and business and holds an academic position at Royal Holloway School of Management, University of London where he lectures strategic management, international business and global leadership. He has extensive management and business experience, having worked in a number of industrial and commercial sectors in international organisations in Brazil, Portugal, Switzerland and the UK. His main research interests lie in the areas of strategy and leadership and his research has been published in the British Journal of Management and other periodicals.

A very informal character at heart, Mr de Moraes flashed a constant smile to his audience as he analysed the intricacies of economic, business and management aspects of globalisation. He was adamant about understanding the past of a country before being able to get to grips with the present and future of its economic possibilities. Mr de Moraes referred to Brazil, his country of origin, the UK and Malta, finding common tendencies and opposite traits which could extend or slow possibilities of businessbetween countries.

Mr de Moraes also referred to the 2008 crisis and said that this, “Has forced us to re-examine our beliefs about markets and globalisation”. He described the world’s current financial situation of the world as being in turmoil and underlined the fact that prosperity and power is shifting to China and Brazil.

Mr de Moraes proposed the rethinking of Malta’s position in the international community. Keeping in mind that Malta is small, Mr de Moraes said that “small is beautiful” and underlined the value of risk,a mentality that has to be introduced with vigour for a country to be successful.
