The contribution I can bring to companies and organizations, is enhancing communication in all forms: personal, team and media-based. I do this offering an applied introduction to the dynamics of communication along with an understanding of media impact on personal and organizational communication. I usually prefer a case-based or project-based approach with small groups, in order to foster active discussion and discuss/challenge/revise established practices. I teach in Italian, English or Spanish.
