Who I Am
I love researching, learning, and putting together the “pieces of the puzzle”.
I see my degree as a licence to further expand my knowledge, maintaining a constant growth.
I enjoy communicating, teaching, and coaching. I love designing and delivering solutions to people’s real problems and needs.
I developed my skills in strategising, managing and leading teams, projects and products.
Following and implementing Agile, I cultivated the importance of flexibility, iteration, and evolution. Creativity is a strong weapon in my arsenal. I am not afraid to make mistakes, because I always learn from what can be identified by the most as “failures”.
While I completed my Master degree, and the CELTA, in this profile, I will not give me 100% in any skill, because I am constantly learning, and in this constantly evolving world, it is impossible to know everything about everything. My research skills are keeping me up-to-date when required.
What I Can Do
What I Offer
I have never been afraid of responsibilities, and I led different and diverse teams, up to a not easy size, in terms of communication channels, of 15 people. I am very observant, and I believe that people must come first. I like to be considered a leader, not a "boss". Thanks to my negotiation and communication skills, and I can easily interface team members, their ideas, and contributions, with everyone else.
Throughout my industry and academic experience, I could realise the importance of proper Product Management. From my own mistakes, and observing others, I developed strong planning and management abilities over the whole product lifecycle. Although I can deal with Legacy systems, I mainly work in Agile environment, where I also covered role of Business Analyst, SCRUM Master, Product Owner.
You cannot be a Team Leader, if you are not part of the Team. I enjoy sharing and creating the best environment for people. I believe in consulting and brainstorming, where everyone can positively contribute to the solution. I like flexible teams where I can integrate and adapt, even to different roles. I can easily deal with, and possibly reduce, communication channels in larger contexts.
Problem solving is part of everyday life, we just do not realise it for a reason or another. Every mistake I made provided me with more transferable knowledge. I usually tackle problems with creativity, and I like to think out of the box, trying different approaches. This attitude reflects directly in how I approach team work. Putting aside the "fear of mistakes" solutions usually come easily.
I developed my teaching experience in Italy, while tutoring in different Computer Science subjects. I have been guest lecturer at the Australian National University, in Canberra, Australia, where I taught Creative Writing and Poetry Composition. I earned a Cambridge CELTA qualification that enables me to teach English as a Second Language.
Technology must serve a purpose for us. I strongly believe that the usability of a piece of technology makes a massive difference in various aspects. Thanks to Design Thinking, from customer satisfaction, which may provide more revenue, to the delivery of simplified/automated procedures, that may save human lives. Technology is everywhere, and must answer to our real needs.
A little overview of what I can do, and where I can always improve.
