DES 475 Service Design | COFFEE WITH: Alessandro Ghetti (November 2023)
Join us for a talk with Alessandro Ghetti, Growth and Innovation Lead at Accenture Song Middle East.
About Alessandro Ghetti:
While he was studying Earth Science at the University of Ferrara (Italy), Alessandro worked as a cultural industry manager, events organizer and booking agent for several agencies and public institutions in the north of Italy.
In 2004 he decided to apply for the Erasmus program to work with the University of Cadiz (Spain) and the University of Tetuan (Morocco) to publish some papers and finally his thesis on Digital Terrain Models and Morphodynamics.
He finally moved to Madrid to enroll on a Leonardo da Vinci scholarship and then he joined a master’s degree program in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). After his master's degree, he decided to remain in Spain and he started working as business development manager for EMEA at Stereocarto, the geospatial information department of the Inypsa Engineering Group.
A few years after, he decided to improve his business knowledge through an MBA at the IE Business School, an experience that will open the doors to the creation of some startups as well as the collaboration as a mentor with several incubators and accelerators in France, Italy and Spain.
He finally launched the digital creative agency Piovra, together with his wife and some partners, and started working as a consultant and business developer for the innovation consultancy firm Opinno (Editors of MIT Technology Review and Harvard Business Review) in Europe and Latin America.
In 2016 he started working as business design lead for Fjord Iberia and in 2019 he moved to Fjord Dubai as Go To Market Director for Fjord Middle East.
Today Alessandro is the Growth & Product Innovation Lead for Accenture Song Middle East, working on bringing and shaping new experiences and ventures to the region.
