Think & Act differently

What I Talk About

Hire Me to Speak

Through thought-provoking, inspiring and engaging Talks & Workshops, I empower people with life skills that expand their possibilities in life/business/career, so they feel truly alive & in control.

I remove the word “impossible” from their vocabulary and they start to live beyond their limits.

I have an interactive speaking style — using anecdotes, stories & powerful tools to take my audience on an inspiring journey. Participants always walk away smiling, clutching a notepad packed full of practical tips, tricks & serious action steps to move their life forward (and they often learn some Italian gestures, too!).

I’m available for keynote presentations, workshops, Q&A style live events, festivals, conferences and educational talks in schools, universities & organisations.

Have a look at my past and future Talks & Workshops.

  • Bruna is very professional and I appreciated her sincerity when sharing her own experience. She was attentive to everyone, her smile and positive energy were communicative. I found that she delivered her talk in a clear, simple, structured and, as a result, a quite powerful way. She paid attention to people’s reactions and at the end devoted some extra time to meeting everyone of us and answering our questions. Whether or not you are thinking of changing career, it is refreshing talk for anyone who struggles to find a work/personal life balance, feels something may be missing in their lives or simply feels a bit lost, a bit out of touch with themselves. You will leave re-energised and wanting to offer – as well – what you can do best.. what resonates with your soul… or, if you don’t know what that is, to be a bit more curious about yourself.

  • Bruna facilitated our career focused panel discussion with great vivacity and charm. Her passion for life and expertise within the charity sector was particularly engaging and she gave great, inspirational advice to our students. Bruna was a great Chair keeping the discussion on track, however I can see that she would be an excellent keynote or workshop lead given her natural ability to connect with the audience and wealth of advice to share.

  • I attended Bruna’s workshop […] and I had the chance to speak to her, she is the kind of person who makes you feel this is not the first time you met, but you actually know each other. She listens to you without judging and she is asking you the right questions. I’m glad I met Bruna and hope to meet her again in the future.

  • Bruna facilitated an excellent talk on working in the charity sector as part of our recent Employability Festival here at the University of Kent. She discussed working in the sector- both the positives and the challenges and provided students with practical exercises to help them in their career thinking and planning. I would be happy to have her on campus working with our students again.

  • Your workshop was excellent and it helped me when you shared your personal story and journey. You have opened my mind to possibilities and that I can break free from any stagnation or cycle of unfulfillment. How you explained how we should handle our fears was great. Thanks for listening and making me feel understood […] I see myself flying now and doing what fulfills me in life and destiny. I’m grateful our paths have crossed. You are one in a million.

  • Bruna provided great value to our Open Days, giving our students tools to find the right career path for them based on their values, principals and personal-missions. The workshop was full of interactive activities and tasks that they were able to take home and evaluate on their own – a well thought-out workshop and encouraging speaker with great experience in her field – Thank you for helping us make our Open Days a success!

  • Bruna was great to work with in setting up the day’s workshop and provided a very thorough and detailed workshop which all the young people present got a lot out of. What was particularly great was Bruna’s knowledge in this area and her ability to make you think differently about things in a really positive and constructive way. Bruna is very responsive, always looking to reach any group or individuals she is working with and that made the day’s workshop really valuable.

  • Bruna is an inspiring and enthusiastic speaker. I liked her transparency and all the insights she brought into the talk. Feeling a bit confused about my future career plans, I attended her talk in June 17, hoping to get some answers. Bruna showed me how to see things from a different angle and change my perspective on career goals/opinions. It gave me some highlights about how to approach some situations, doubts, confusion… and the right questions to ask myself to find the answers. Those career coaching tips I received can be also applied into your personal life. Very satisfied. I will definitely attend again.

  • Brilliant! She is such a charismatic and energetic person that she’s really easy to listen to. This is not your average careers talk- it’s about finding what makes your soul sing- so it’s a creative and spiritual process! Bruna is an open, warm, fun person who is clearly passionate about what she does and I’m really keen to work with her again. Thank you.
