Gella has won a total of eleven European medals, including seven Gold, two Silver and two Bronze. She is a two-time World Champion Gold medalist, two time Silver and one-time Bronze medalist. She has been nominated seven times for the distinction of ‘Sportswoman of the Year’ by sports journalists, and has received the honour twice, in 1993 and 1997.
SSE Riga Executive Education Networking Night is a special event for clients of SSE Riga's Executive Education programmes, and the invited guests are from business and state institutions as well as from NGOs.
Networking Nights facilitate interesting discussions on values and knowledge relevant for business, professional and private life. The content resonates with the values promoted by SSE Riga: world-class professionalism, high spirits, and tradition.
The event takes place two to three times a year. The previous speaker was Francesca Martinoli from BSI Bank in Switzerland with the talk “Art in Banks”.
