Isadora Azzalin:

Tricky and enthusiastic professional, I have 5 years of experience in market analysis and administrative and financial management of a multinational branch.

A multicultural education and the ability of communication and proactivity coupled with curiosity make me a versatile professional, able to see opportunities and seek solutions to problems.

With an entrepreneurial mindset and business owner, my holistic vision enabled me to act by assuming various roles within the same organization, being a key part of the company’s business. Now I want to use my energy for the commercial area.

With experience of reporting to C-Level in Italy, negotiation with clients and suppliers, supervision of administrative activities, besides intermediation with lawyers and being responsible for accounting and dealing with banks, qualify me to seek an opportunity in the commercial area.

I want to use my knowledge acquired during college and now in the postgraduate degree in Sales and Marketing Management to assemble strategies, execute them and bring results.My growth-oriented mindset and risk appetite make me make the decision to change careers.

The last book I just read and recommend: abundance. Beyond this: outliers, blink, s.a. creativity, the power of habit, the art of war, among others. I am interested in technology, education and sustainability. I dream of working with businesses that involve these passions.
