Manuella is a French-born Sri Lankan Tamil. Having lived in the UK, Italy, Sri Lanka, the Netherlands and China before settling in Spain, she has had plenty of opportunities to observe how cultural backgrounds influence our behaviors.

She started her career as an Engineer at L'Oréal before moving to Human Resources, where she specialized in learning and development. Developing a profound understanding of people’s needs on the field helped her grow a strong sense of how to put the right person in the right position.
