In today’s podcast, we meet Daniel Traça, Dean and Professor of Economics at Nova School of Business and Economics in Lisbon, who speaks to us about his purpose, identity and how he is making a difference to the world through education.
Living the life that he chooses and knowing the legacy he will leave behind, empowers Daniel to go above and beyond for his students by guiding and allowing them to figure out their purpose, explore a variety of experiences and do amazing things in the world. Today’s podcast is a melting pot of wonderful ideas and intentions and above all, reassurance that there are education leaders like him that are dedicated to the development of talent and knowledge that impacts the world. A special thanks to Daniel Traça for joining us today.

About the Global Indian Series:
My name is Rajan Nazran and in the past 15 years, I have travelled to over 58 countries, taking on some of the biggest conversations and covering stories from around the globe. My appetite for exploration, inside know-how, and good food, has seen me voyaging far and wide, from the edges of the Amazon Rainforest, battling against the hurricanes of the Caribbean, being taken hostage in Eastern Europe, through to facing Ebola in West Africa. But now I take on my biggest expedition so far…discovering countries and places that are home to our diaspora and the real experiences that come with it.
The Global Indian Series is an immersive platform that provides original, memorable, and exclusive content with on-ground interviews and insights from incredible people. It also provides a platform to celebrate the extraordinary tentacles of identity that has weaved itself across the globe and the conversations you need to know. In addition to our award-winning podcasts, we run our print feature in partnership with The Indian Express, host events worldwide, and have an upcoming docu-series.
