About this event

Creativity mixed with clear analytical thinking has been my strongest business ability which proved to be useful at UNE where as Strategy Manager I was able to lead the development of a game plan to become the number 1 Broadband provider in Colombia and the challenger in the race for the first place in the pay TV business.

As I see a proliferation of "black swans" affecting businesses everywhere, which only means game changing events for entire industries and disruptive innovation as a rule changer that is here to stay, my experience in fast changing environments such as the one in telecommunications, and also having worked for several high technology startups in the development of winning strategies, can help established companies in relatively stable industries to prepare them in anticipating turning points and profiting from these into major opportunities for fresh new growth.

Understanding that solutions come from a broad array of fields, I took sometime off and went to develop my creativity by studying Basic Cuisine at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris in 2010.

Right now I work with startups and scale-ups helping them identify and achieve key milestones for sustainable accelerated growth
