Creator of the CASE® Method for leadership, transitions and conflict transformation. For teaching this in 2014 – 2015 I was one of only two Europeans selected by President Obama’s YALI programme to train a new leadership class for Africa.

I founded and chaired the Embedded Sustainability Working Group of AIAS, the largest Italian organisation of Environment and Safety professionals.

I am a Registered Provider for Leadership and Conflict Transformation at the European Parliament.

I have worked for a long time in the health sector where I was Advisor to the Chief Medical Officer of the Meyer Hospital in Florence for projects to humanise paediatric medicine, Lead Expert for FNOMCeO and the Ministry of Health for the creation of the first course and manual on communication in healthcare and I represented Italy for 4 years in the Steering Committee of the largest international scientific society for communication in medicine (EACH – International Association for Communication in Healthcare).

My professional passion is to inspire people and companies to develop bold and forward-looking visions, to dare to build a better life and society. I love helping people to live a quality life, developing thriving relationships in harmony with the ecosystem. Likewise, I love helping organisations to thrive by adopting Strategic Sustainability models and conflict transformation practices, thus unlocking their potential to be a positive force in society and the world.
