A Leap of Faith: Bisila Bokoko
After studying law and economics in Spain, Bisila moved into international business and has never looked back.
After moving to New York, working with the Valencian Export Institute and Spain – US Chamber of Commerce, she took a leap of faith into entrepreneurship and launched her own consulting firm, Bisila Bokoko Embassy International (BBES).
The thing I love most in my work is opening markets for other people who want to go international. That’s one of the things that most excites me. I work with corporations but also individuals – people who want to expand overseas
Education is not just about getting a qualification, though, she believes. “Education is every single day; it’s not about university, or having a certificate. Normally I read about 52 books per year, so one every week. That’s one of my commitments. I try to read about completely different industries and new ideas to help me think outside of the box. I love reading, too.”
