We believe that intellectual, emotional and cultural intelligence are all equally fundamental for the success of modern organisations, and we advocate for balanced leadership styles that nurture environments where communication and collaboration are the central pillars of success.
We use our influence as a possibility to contribute to the development of a more socially conscious private sector.
By providing profitable, sustainable and value-driven strategies and implementation programs, we help our partners not only to surmount organisational obstacles, but to implement successful and long-lasting changes in their corporate structures and cultures.
We believe that any solid project must be built upon a strong foundation of values, in order to make sure every step is aligned with the objective in both content and form. The values we hold at the core will serve as a compass to help with the decision-making process, and to make sure that we never sail astray.
Have a look at our Founding Manifesto.
Our value, what we can offer to the world, is the product of our experience and research. Our capacity to see you and align with you, inspire you and be the external eye you need to rethink your situation. We can then, if you will have us, help you implement those changes with our training programs for executive, management, and staff teams.
Therefore, the minds and hearts of our team members are our biggest assets.

She enjoys a long relationship with the 24Ore Business School in cooperation with the University of Parma, where she lectures on her core topics: “Strategic Marketing & Analysis of Competition”, “Luxury & Design” and “Ready for the business – Working with Emotional Intelligence”.
Since 2004, Anja has been certified as Executive Coach by The Change Partnership Coaching Academy in Milan. Following her Master in Business Administration (MBA) at the Business School CUOA Vicenza, she pursued further certifications in Health Coaching by the American Dr. Roy Martina as well as the Professional Coach Program at the Future Coaching Academy in Milan. Anja is Associate Certified Coach (ACC) of the International Coach Federation (ICF).
“In my 20 years of international business experience, it has always been my mission and goal to coach people and to help them achieve their best possible performance. To me, this is all about making people aware of their interaction with themselves and with their professional and private environment. The most important assets, behind all marketing & sales strategies, budget numbers and targets, are, without a doubt, the people themselves.”
Consultant -Trainer - UX Designer
Business consultant focused on the development of communication strategies that integrate the User Experience Design point of view, for the optimisation of the communication flows within and around organisations. In an increasingly virtual economy, the need to properly convey the value of an organisation virtually, is a competitive requisite. Through well-designed communication and user experience strategies, organisations can make the most out of their human and intellectual resources, making sure that the experience of the user and the appearance of the infrastructure is optimal at every stage of the value chain.
Anna has started practising consulting by guiding the creation of the business structure of creative ventures.
She has developed all-inclusive communication strategies for creative startups, that served as a vehicle to position artists and designers into their markets, grow their professional and client networks, and transform their skills into a marketable value.
Professional experience in the business sector (marketing and sales), has allowed the understanding and development of social intelligence and the ability to communicate effectively. Specialization in User Experience (UX) Design, enables one to understand and create the structures through which communication is transmitted so that the message is perceived effectively, resulting in a satisfied internal and external user (human resources and customers). In this way, corporate communication is conceived in its totality and can be conveyed as much through the physical presence as in the virtual dimension.
"Organizational structures and processes designed with a user-centric approach are more efficient in providing a structure in which the value of each participant is catalysed and expands to its greater potential. They are also more sustainable, since they provide for a healthier work environment.
My approach to Strategic Business Development is influenced first and foremost by my background as a UX Designer; that teaches us to rethink our Creations (products, services, processes and organizational structures) with the end-user in mind. "
