Institutional Sales and Development Director, MCI
"Patrizia is a long time business connection but also a friend. During our mutual careers, I have always been impressed by her loyalty and personal engagement towards her clients and employees, mastering the difficult balance of preserving the interest of both. Rather than being a simple salesperson, Patrizia quickly became a counsel and solution provider for her clients, going above and beyond the call of duty to strike the right deal and provide the service deserved. Patrizia has had a remarkable experience and setting up her own consultancy is natural as a next move. I have no doubt in her capacity to bring the right advice in any matter related to the MICE Industry."

Having had the chance to get to know her more deeply I have confirmed my initial thoughts of her. She is a careful person, ambitious and competent and I am sure she will further raise her goals and the success deriving from them without any doubt. I think that Patrizia it's a driving force in the promotion of the resorts that she represents. Since meeting her, for me, these Resorts have taken a different light”.
