"Danilo is a genius when it comes to Productivity/RPA/ML/Artificial Intelligence and IT transformation. His energy and drive is like no other. He truly understands how to build such a division from the ground up so that it gains mass adoption and scale with everyone's buy in. He has a truly addictive charisma and is perhaps the most skilled negotiator I have ever worked with - effortlessly working with any stakeholder in order to keep them motivated and performing. Danilo is also a true strategist, always carefully planning and adapting, he has great vision and experience...."

EU Ai Alliance Member

"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."

Amazon Web Services (AWS)

"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."

PRINCE2 Qualified Project Manager

"He is a versatile character with loads of talents, business acumen, strategic thought leadership and extensive experience in Cognitive Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning space. His effective communication, extensive experience and exposure in business and AI/ ML tech knowledge and negotiation skills, training and development skills, Operations knowledge, and partner management has not only helped to manage both internal and external customers but also to achieve quantum leap in business results; exposure he received in AI and ML space with sound professional and educational background would be definite competitive edge in his career."
