I hold qualifications in Psychology and Management from three leading European universities: La Sapienza, Helsinki Yliopisto, and Henley Business School. In the earlier phase of my career, I gained recognition as an award-winning consultant, for my ability to accelerate the effectiveness of individuals and organizations.
Since 2016, I've built a thriving coaching and consulting business, working with diverse individuals, senior leaders in large corporations such as Shell, Oxford University Press, and Ashai, and SMEs across more than 10 industries worldwide. My clients include serial entrepreneurs, executives, senior leaders, wealth managers, and professionals.
As one of the 2023 winners of the 'Leadership for a Fairer World' contest, I serve as an Ambassador for the Henley Centre for Leadership at Henley Business School. My perspectives have been featured in British national publications, the likes of The Guardian, Metro, and The I Paper, as well as Brainz Magazine, and The Sunday Post. I author the newsletter 'One Step Forward' and have been a guest speaker for organizations including JCI London (Chamber of Commerce), UCL (Save The Children), the UA in UK Fashion and Beauty Community, and the Positive Nature Network. My talks have been described as "very insightful and even necessary during such challenging times."
I was raised in a family of brick-and-mortar business owners in a small Southern Italian town.
During the 1980s and 1990s, the area was particularly challenging for business owners, due to corruption, organized crime, and limited access to business education and support. These experiences profoundly influenced my views and interests in entrepreneurship, human psychology, and adaptive leadership in complex environments.
I have cultivated deep expertise at the intersection of human performance and the mechanics of growing businesses. Through my work, I've discovered how conventional thinking is the most formidable barrier to accelerated growth and transformation. I've also observed how a leader's ambition and willingness to take personal responsibility can lead to self-doubt, attempts to control circumstances, and strained relationships.
To transition from good to extraordinary, one must learn the distinctions to operate at a higher level of thinking.
