Everything started on 1st July 2009.

I was out of the doors of General Electric, after a 12 years career ended up in my firing.

I had helped GE deliver some of the largest O&G projects, change the way it manages its Projects' risks, build the first market model capable to predict 2009 Crisis 2 years in advance. This last was too much. I was not believed. And when it happen, nobody wanted to meet the Kassandra.

I was fired, and that was the best it could happen.

My former managers outside GE started asking my help; the first italian "startuppers" were sent to me to help build their businesses. I started coaching Business Owners and Entrepreuners and take a deep dive in the most advanced ideas disrupting the World: from Lean Startup to Disruptive Innovation; from Digital marketing to Complex sales; from TRIZ and Agile to DataScience and IoT...

Always with the pleasure of learning and sharing with the brightest people on the international networks.
