Taking a nimble and personal approach, I am passionate about working closely with partners in a straightforward and impactful manner to drive tangible results.

Over the years, I have been working to curate a community of some of the brightest sparks I’ve come across - The Bsides. On occasion, I work with them to realise projects, but mainly I just love connecting the dots between the community in the aim of igniting collaboration.

The community is diverse and spans many industries. Take a look and connect… collaborate. Valentina x
