Programme Manager
Rosanna Belmonte
The fast-paced working environment of today’s businesses and organisations, in concert with the rapid structural and technical changes observed in the last years due to the pandemic and other socio-economic factors, have made evident the need for agile, efficient leadership. Today’s (and tomorrow’s) leaders are urged to constantly stay ahead of the curve but often have little time left at the end of the day to invest in optimising the competencies which will help them achieve that.
