"I worked with Danilo during our time at CitiGroup where he lead the RPA/Machine Learning/Ai space for one of the banks 5 divisions. Immediately Danilo became an integral part of the team and setup and completely owned his space. His knowledge of change management/rpa/transformation and how to get buy in from vital stakeholders was head and shoulders above anyone else I have ever worked with. In the end Danilo broke CitiGroup records in delivering its first Ai Automation and program and setup a legacy of plans for years to come given his incredible skills to see and plan into the future and influence those around him (a vital skills when there are so many conflicts of interest in a program with so much change)."
Ben Roberts - PRINCE2 Qualified Project Manager
"Danilo is a smart, hard-working and passionate leader who is not afraid to try a new innovative approach rather that sticking with the status quo. He listens to all the points of view and will chime in with suggestions, seeking a consensus rather than making unilateral decisions without having buy-in. He thinks long term rather than just getting sucked into the day-to-day. He is approachable and genuinely wants the best for those he works with. I would highly recommend him for any role he puts his mind to."
