    I’m 36, Italian, wife and working mum of an active 4 yo boy Leonardo. My native background is Italian but, after more than 7 years spent across Tokyo, Sydney and Singapore I feel like I have many backgrounds. During these years, I had the chance to develop an incredible resilience having to start my career from scratch a new life in 2 different Countries with success. Australia and Japan feel like home as much as Italy now, and so the network I built during these years. As professional, I have about 12 years’ experience in sales and marketing in APJ and Europe Regions (Italy, Singapore, Japan, India, Australia) mostly for Tech Companies such as Microsoft Corporation. I develop data-driven go-to-market strategies for driving revenue growth.
