In my work with companies and brands, I found that difficulty dealing with change, technology overwhelm, communication issues, and lack of momentum are symptoms.
If this this is you, acting is essential to learning.
But it should be the right action.
I teach companies and teams to understand the systems at play in their organization and commercial environment and to learn and adapt as a way of working. This results in meaningful alignment and effective communication, experience design. [more]
I’ve written and facilitated hundreds of strategic conversations, optimized for joy and energy, working with agencies and brands as part of idea generation and problem solving, professional development and knowledge transfer.
Hire me to provide a different perspective.
Value is important for the evolution of a brand, to deliver memorable experiences, and create a culture focused on the human side of business. Business is still about solving problems. Technology impacts the modes of communication. I’ve been speaking about rediscovering value to create experiences worth having at conferences around the world for more than a decade.

I love people. They’re awesome.
“When our company was rebranding, we had no idea where to begin. We knew that our current product name was not getting people excited about our technology and our business, and we wanted to make a meaningful change. Valeria talked us through several different strategies for rebranding and helped us map out key metrics for success with selecting our new brand. Her advice was invaluable, and we saw the positive effect of our new name immediately. I would highly recommend working with Valeria to create a brand that highlights your company.”
– Elsa Swanson, Cofounder and CEO, Synotrac

“I first met Valeria when she was a featured speaker during a Business Marketing Association event. During this particular presentation, I was impressed with Valeria’s in depth understanding and thoughtful approach to corporate culture, branding and marketing, as well as an articulation of how vitally interconnected they are. Valeria knows how to cut through clutter to express her points with real world examples, wonderful humor and ‘no bull’ directness. It’s been an honor getting to know and interact with Valeria since our first meeting. I’m always so impressed with her passion for learning (she is forever discovering new insights) and her ability to humanize problems and situations, applying her deep knowledge of psychology and behavioral learning practices.”
