To translate an idea into reality, you need more than just a creative spark: you need careful research, analysis and planning. In every project I work on, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise built up over the years.
In a market where consumers are flooded with marketing messages, you can still achieve visibility with a well-targeted marketing strategy. By carefully researching the market, consumer attitudes and the economic and political climate, you can develop high-impact, cost-effective marketing strategies.
New forms of integrated tourism management are challenging the traditional models used by tourist boards and traditional destination marketing organisations. In a complex and constantly evolving tourism sector, the latter often find themselves struggling to meet the needs of all players in the tourism value chain.

Tourism has always been my greatest passion. It is a branch of the economy that is not about intangible goods or mere numbers but rather about welcoming real living people. It requires the ability to listen to others and see things from their perspective.
As the director of Ticino Turismo (see my CV) from 2012 to 2019, I experienced first-hand the challenges, difficulties and successes of the Ticino, a canton heavily reliant on tourism. My job involved promoting the Ticino worldwide as a holiday, travel and conference destination. Sustainability and innovation have always been hallmarks of my work.
I am driven by my natural enthusiasm and a deep affection for the place I call home and am not afraid to stand up for what I believe in. I believe that in all things in life, one must find the courage to step off the beaten track and blaze new trails.
