How Alessio is building a better working world

“Building a better working world for me means bringing my multidisciplinary experience to the field and transferring it to the young talents I work with so that they can always recognize a concrete opportunity in the future with an always constructive and proactive approach (If luck doesn't knock then you have to build the door!).

Outside EY, I personally write for different rubrics on national media channels, newspapers and radio, on the themes of work, opportunities, trends and future vision including career tips. I also work with several university business schools and I contribute to a famous business newspaper.”
