Born in Italy, I have spent the last 11 years of my life working abroad in the US, Mexico and in the UK, where I currently live with my family. Therefore, I understand the challenges of adapting and being effective in different cultures and the high demands put on managers who also actively engage with parenting their children.
I have spent over 20 years working as a Marketing Director in the FMCG and technology sectors, across multiple categories (food, infant nutrition, home care and telecommunications). I currently hold the position of Managing Director of a medium-sized enterprise and therefore continue to be in touch with business and management challenges daily.
Having sat on the executive committee of Danone de Mexico, Danone Early Life Nutrition UK, and Millward Brown UK, I have made it to the top of the ladder myself, and I know in-depth the intricacies of managing large teams and influencing the board of directors’ team. I have led the crafting of functional as well as company-wide strategy and have supervised the implementation of their marketing and communication plans.
I have been affected by stress at work and have suffered from exhaustion at times. By reading, exercising and through the practice of mindfulness, I have learned to navigate periods of uncertainty and anxiety myself and developed my own resilience.
Throughout my career, I developed a strong interest in people, teams and leadership and therefore decided to become an accredited ICF coach. I am passionate about helping people make better sense of their lives and achieve their full potential personally and professionally.
I also support struggling businesses who are hungry for a turn-around as well as young entrepreneurs who need to channel their drive and creativity to achieve maximum impact in the short term with very limited resources.
I have a passion for travelling and foreign languages and I can coach in Italian, English, French and Spanish.
