I have a multidisciplinary background with a BA in Industrial Design from Italy and an MA in Innovation Management from the UK. I’ve always been passionate about the effect of design thinking on innovation processes, working as “bilingual facilitator” between business practitioners and academia to help create productive friction.
Before joining Livework I was mainly working with Fortune 500 corporations, helping over 60 organisations across 21 different industries researching and exploring the Future of Work through collaborative intelligence. Here in the role of Head of Innovation and Design, I have been researching, envisioning, investigating and visualising future scenarios through an in-depth exploration of the evolution of society, culture, technology, resources and demography. I’ve also co-designed the tools and methods for collaborative research to happen both face-to-face and online.
More recently I’ve also been working closely with ICT start-ups and in particularly with a start-up accelerator in north of Italy. As Innovation Consultant I’ve been advising on future directions to take for a successful programme, to meet the goal of creating 103 startups in 4 years.
I strongly believe in the power of collaborative intelligence and cross-pollination of business and design. Working hard to prove this cross-pollination science!
