In 2005 he received a job offer from Auberon Growth Consultants in the Netherlands and relocated to Amsterdam, where he had the opportunity to work for local stars like SBS, and international corporations like Heineken and Philips. At the beginning of 2007 he joined Philips as interim Sr. Director of End-User innovation, helping the consumer electronics vision in defining an ambient living strategy and fueling a more consumer-centric innovation approach.

Publications and Public Speaking
Articles, Books, Speaches and Blogs
Both my consulting experience as well as my PHD research, give me an opportunity to learn about innovation and branding. And I am delighted and lucky enough to be sharing these experiences as a speaker (e.g. PAN, Esadecreapolis, Kompania Piwowarska/ SAB Miller Poland) or through a number of blogs. I am a guest blogger at Esadecreapolis, on America-Retail, and my research has been featured on and I have been interviewed by CEO Blog Nation, Health News Digest, the Examiner, The European, and the Entrepreneurs Podcast Network. While most of my PHD research is on co-creation, innovation and co-innovation, I also published a book in June 2014. Co-creazione:Mistero Risolto! is a journey on co-creation which aims helping the reader in asking the right questions about co-creation, so that the reader can find the most compelling answers on the topic, based on its own. The book, currently in Italian, is available for purchase on Amazon and specialized bookstores.
