As an expert in emotional intelligence, Albert Alegre has
taught business leaders, teachers, and parents practical
ways to help children, students, and employees to develop
their emotional intelligence and increase their performance.
He has been researching on this topic for the last 18 years. He
has published extensively in scientific journals and presented
in scientific conferences. He holds a Bachelor's degree in
Education, a Licentiate in Business Administration, a Master
of Arts degree in Developmental Psychology,

Albert began his professional career working with the most
underprivileged children in the public schools in the outskirts
of the city of Barcelona, Spain. He then worked in the
corporate world for 13 years, becoming sales and marketing
director of an important insurance company, and director of
his own consulting firm. He went back to education,
the USA, and worked for a time in an alternative
school in the
inner city neighborhoods of Albany,
NY. During those years, Albert
was able to identify
that most of the emotional weaknesses that
children deal with developmentally, continue to plague many
beings during their adult life, causing incredible difficulties and
suffering. He developed a method to help children and adults increase
their emotional competence and intelligence.
Since then, he has conducted numerous presentations and workshops
both in Spain and in the USA on ways of helping children, students, and
develop their emotional intelligence. Currently, he lives
beetween Barcelona and East Stroudsburg. He is an Associate Professor
at East Stroudsburg University, and the founder of EIINA.
