Allessandra de Santillana

Director, Media Relations

I focus on increasing the visibility of the Internet Society, our mission, and more importantly, the issues we care about, in the media globally. 

I have over 15 years of experience in Public Relations, mostly for technology companies. My area of interest and expertise is global PR, having overseen PR for companies in the Caribbean and Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. It’s taught me that what interests the media can vary from country to country and region to region.

I believe in the value of a good story to get our messages across. I also think it’s important to explain things in layman’s terms and to humanize technology (and policy!).

I’ve lived on four continents and love to travel. When I’m not trying to pitch the Internet Society to the media, I can be found cooking or dreaming of a beach somewhere.
