A chartered marketer (MCIM) with an MBA, I am currently pursuing a PhD in Entrepreneurship, focusing on investor behaviour in the context of equity crowdfunding. Teaching all things digital is part of the journey. I blog about the intersection of crowdfunding and sustainability at thisisoliver.co and hold a weekly column on inclusivity on the Italian daily "La Discussione".

"Systemic shifts require collective intent - something that is still scarce in business communities across the globe. The COVID-19 pandemic has suddenly changed that, and has created the necessary conditions for collective intent. The human race is at a crossroads, and the choices we make now will define future generations and their way of life."

“People around the world are coming up with ideas on how to solve some of the problems and challenges we’ve faced in the last few weeks. For a lot of people, there’s a lot of time on their hands to do research, there’s a lot of thinking time. It is a perfect time to be doing that.”
