I am a consultant specialized in food retailing and shopping centers since 1989 with SEIC – Studio Orlandini (www.studiorlandini.it).Besides putting people and companies in contact, I organize study tours abroad for the main Italian food retailers and shopping centers management groups. I bring them to see the best practices in their field.
These trips – at least 120 in 20 years – have been to Belgium, France, Germany, England, Ireland, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Canada, The United States (East Coast, West Coast and Midwest), Mexico and South Africa They have enabled me to acquire a deep knowledge of the various markets and of the most important foreign retailers as well as of the people that run them. My personal connections are undoubtedly one of my most valuable assets, at all levels.
I also do incoming tours for foreign retailers in Italy and have collaborated with American, Australian, Brazilian, French and Russian groups.
In parallel, in 2002, I started my activity as an interpreter, thanks to my diploma as a parliamentary interpreter for English and to my excellent knowledge of French.
