LEADERSHIP instead of TEACHING

I saw 34 individuals and future leaders grow within a secure environment and we trained together. 

Last week I was invited to a 1.5 day guest lecture at the Retail & Communications Master Programme at the University of Turin. It was incredible to feel the excitement, see the passion of the students grow, experience the care and praise that was given for peers, the capability of providing constructive feedback and innovating brands & communications.

For me personally it felt like a life changing elixir to see the potential in this class room and the fun we had to DELIVER THE ABSOLUTE BEST WE CAN.

EVOLUTION instead of REVOLUTION. Live and enjoy LEADERSHIP.

Thank you to all the 34 students some of them to mention Merlo Tancredo, Saracco Giovanni, Nicolotti Pietro, Massa Giovanni, De Angelis Marcelo, Antonia Mileto, Anna Gondola, Cristina Coreini, Pietro Franchitti, Andrea Ubertallo, Anastasia Orlenko, Alessia De Stefanis, Alessia Valperga, Maria Sole Bianchetti, Andrea Parisi, Luca Botto, Maria Teresa Berloco, Eliana Sauria, letizia Sardu, Francesco D'Agostino, Federico Maggioro, Davide Crosio Leonard, Simone Gambardella, Fabio La Vella.

Thank you also to Gianluca Fossat, Federico Sucato, Anna Claudia Pellicelli for giving me the opportunity to lead.

The Daily Telegraph "Making the right connections"

“If you want to get ahead in business, joining a network offers you all sorts of opportunities. And there is no time like the present.”
— Claire Cohen

Being able to join a niche networking group has an added advantage for women, who often have to juggle their professional and home life. Joining an industry-specific group, where you know your time won’t be wasted, can be a significant draw. “Over the years I’ve spent a lot of time at networking events,” says luxury marketer Michaela Christine Wolf. “Whilst some were fruitful due to my effort to work the room, most had no value. “As my business has grown, I have to be very selective about which events I attend. At curated events, I get to indulge my passions and interests, as well as meet interesting and inspiring people, many of whom have become friends and essential sounding boards for both my business and personal development.”
