Born in Trieste, a mitteleuropean town on the Adriatic Sea, I won the prize for being the best high school student in Italy in 1986. Because of this, in 1990 I was asked by RAI, the national broadcasting company, to write and host some educational TV programs. These experiences helped me to focus on forging cultural change.
I graduated in Political Sciences, and got an MBA in International Business promoted by the Consortium of Universities of Trieste, Udine, Venice, Bologna, Vienna, Rijeka and Ljubljana (Italy, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia).
My career in culture change, education and communication consultancy began 15 years ago in Electrolux, where I helped to create the learning program and materials for European manufacturing based on internal best practices. Then I joined the Deloitte Consulting Change Leadership team.
In the last 15 years, I have worked on culture change with many organizations. I specialized in internal communications, brand engagement and coaching, and I have been involved in the delivery of a wide spectrum of projects.
Marco Minghetti invited me to be one of the promoters of “humanistic management” (storytelling, literature, cinema, drama, art for culture change). In 1996, I introduced the first drama-based leadership program in an international MBA in Italy.
