For the past 12+ years I have been consulting for NGOs and international organizations around the world on the use of ICT4D and the strategic use of technology and data in humanitarian and emergency situations.
I am a results-driven consultant who has worked in more than 40 countries across the world. I have a comprehensive experience in providing strategic direction, delivering sustainable projects, and managing design and evaluation systems, with a specific interest in the application and use of new technologies and innovative solutions.
I am able to combine the ability to deliver high performance at the international level with a strong personal drive, and to set long term strategic directions. I lead teams by setting clear directions, coaching and giving trust, proven by my extensive experience managing teams of +100 people with budgets of +$15M. I strive in high-performing cross-functional teams, where I give my best to create and manage efficient and result-oriented policies and workflows.
One of my big passion is research, and I love unpacking complex issues to understand their complexities. I have strong communication skills, having given more than 200 presentations at conferences and panels, and trained +1000 staff and senior level professionals. I combine this skill with the ability to build robust relationships and effectively manage competing demands, that result in achieving project goals.
I hold a Master degree from Colombia University – School of International and Public Affairs; a BA in International Affairs from the University of Bologna; a Master in Human Rights from the University of Padova; and a Post-Graduate Degree on Humanitarian Assistance from the Center for the Rights of People of the Padova University.
I live in London, still work on humanitarian projects and I still am a bit of a geek. When I am not working, I am doing archery.
I believe that the best way to learn is to listen, so send me an email if you want to chat!
