About me

I specialize in helping professionals improve their presentations to become more effective communicators.I do this with individual coaching and group training.  I also enjoy conducting marketing training courses, with a very practical and hands-on approach.

I am based just outside Milan, Italy, and offer services to clients all over the world.  I am also available for in-house training courses on Effective Presentations and Marketing.

I spent over 25 years in a variety of management roles in multinational Information Technology (IT) companies such as IBM, 3Com and USRobotics, gaining a wide international experience in marketing, product management, sales, business development, training, and support. I presented at international conferences and exhibitions, press conferences and customer briefings, fine-tuning my presentation and slide-making skills. I know first hand what it means to prepare and deliver a presentation using PowerPoint slides. I keep up-to-date on the scientific studies and the leading methods at the base of effective presentations. I have a unique combination of Italian style and design coupled with international business knowledge and pragmatism.

I graduated from the University of Miami School of Business in 1982 with a degree in Systems Analysis and have a Master of Science degree from the London School of Economics.

I lived in Mexico City, Miami, London and now reside in northern Italy. I traveled extensively for business and pleasure, spanning the globe from San Francisco to Islamabad, from Moscow to Nairobi and from Lisbon to Tel Aviv.

I am bilingual in English and Italian but also fluent in Spanish and French.

After years of corporate life, I decided to start my own internet-based consulting business, putting to good use and sharing all the marketing experience and deep knowledge in preparing business presentations.  Why not download my free checklist from the resources page, it provides 15 useful tips to help you make impeccable presentations.
