Do Good, Feel Better

Many moments to share with you! The leaves of Barretstown Castle show the time that has passed since I arrived. Lovely months that have taught me that nothing should be taken for granted, that you can help colleagues in many ways and that you always have to be grateful. August 2019 vs November 2019 (as […]

You can leave the Camp but the Camp never really leaves you…Tu puoi lasciare il Camp ma il Camp non ti lascerà mai

That was the time….the time to say goodbye…and I was so sad but at the same time so glad and proud about this adventure. Dynamo team gave to me a really wonderful present, the book of 10 years of happiness of Dynamo Camp. Everyone reported onto it the own message for me and what I wanted to […]

Una parola gentile può cambiare la giornata di qualcuno…A kind word can change someone’s day

A kind word can change someone’s day and lets you feeling light as a ballon. These words were reported on the window of the castle in Ireland (Barretstown Camp) and came back to my mind just before the meeting planned with my Dynamo colleagues. That was just one of the main objectives of the meeting […]

Buongiorno Principessa….Good morning Princess!

  Good morning Princess! All the energy you have in three words! Last week I met again my colleagues from GSK during the QC off site meeting in Tuscany. That was a great occasion to see them after a long time and I appreciated to have some time with them off site. The main objective of the meeting was Team […]

A small seed….Un piccolo seme

So far I have been thinking to have received so much from Dynamo and SeriousFun and I haven’t been able to realize what I offered to them that could make the difference. Last week something unforgettable happened when I felt that I left a small footprint here, even if a small one. As part of the organization […]

“It seems impossible until it is done”

Coming back to the Camp during one of its best days (Dynamo Open Day) and finding it so…bright, in celebration..it was amazing! All Dynamo family together and everyone was taking care about any single part of the Camp in order to welcome guests, families, children, dynamìci and Dynamo ambassadors. Circus, clownerie, climbing, animal factory, archery, […]

As a Business Analyst and IT Project Manager, I am…

  What project are you currently working on?   This is probably the question most of you want to ask me.  Maybe I should have answered this earlier but I didn’t because I needed time to gain a deep and proper understanding of their work practices and pain points.  As the analysis phase is almost done […]

Moved to Dublin

先週末、ダブリンに引越しました。 アイルランド(特にダブリン)の賃貸住宅は慢性的に供給不足らしく、 また家賃相場も上昇を続けています(昨年で13%、2011年からは60%も上昇したそうです!!) 会う人みんなに部屋探しは相当大変だと言われ、かなり覚悟していたのですが、意外とあっさり見つけることができました。 エリアとしても、治安もよく適度ににぎやかな良いところで見つかり、本当にラッキーでした。   とはいえ、契約書にサインしてから3日ほどの間に、 不動産屋が部屋の鍵を持っていなかったり、 電気の開通のやり方がわからなかったり、 (モバイルアプリで登録して先払いでチャージしなければならない) 煙探知機が1分おきにピーピーなるのをとめられなかったり、 冷蔵庫の電源コードが短すぎてコンセントに届かなかったり、 コンロと換気扇がスイッチを入れてもまったく動かなかったり、 いろいろありました。 今日ようやくすべて片付き、ソファで落ち着いてビールを飲むことができました。   のこり5ヶ月、この部屋で元気に楽しく暮らしたいと思います。 Finally moved to Dublin!! Everyone says to me that finding an accommocation in Dublin is one of the most painful thing. There has been an accommodation shortage in this city and the rents continue to rise – it […]
