Have you tried surfing the internet
on the Internet Bay
The year was 1997. In Europe there was still no Euro, Google did not exist, Steve Jobs already thought “different”, while I drowned in the first waves of the internet.
The year was 1997 when I set up my website for the first time. Maybe digital natives do not know it, but once setting a personal blog meant facing the first questions like “what is a website?” or “why a website?”.
I answered with a short post (actually, the concept of “post” was still unknown) with the the title “Why an internet site?”, where I explained to my grandmother the potential of the internet with the prophetic words “in ten years, when everyone will have their space on the web, you will understand“.
Day after day the network has grown and the world has become flat (T. L. Friedman). Those people, who accused me of narcissism in 1997, post their naked pics on Instagram, today. I survived 20 years of the internet and I became a Digital Lifeguard: not a guru, not an influencer, but a survivor who helps other people survive.
I have no special recipes or magic formulas. I just learnt that numbers can help me taking the right decisions as well as they can help me understanding the world. I know that reading, interpreting, and telling stories about figures are the key drivers for a successful life and career, that any intuition needs to be validated by numbers, that any impression can be misled without data.
So I’m creative and business-oriented and I merge analytic thinking with a strategic view, into continuous research of cutting-edge ideas to help business growth.
I’m inquisitive, esplorative, creative, and business oriented.
I enjoy identifying opportunities with a start-up soul, promoting networking, improving my skills, and finding new ways to use marketing and communication with technology, in every phase of the business life cycle.
I’m neither an influencer nor a guru, I’m just a Digital Lifeguard who saves the lives of people or companies that risk their lives every day on the Internet Bay.
