Why Coraggio?

In my early years I recall no one ever took the time to help me setup my companies and guide me through the challenges and this has motivated me to give back and assist others. Coraggio provides a platform to access varied industry knowledge ensuring you don’t make the mistakes that I had to learn myself.

To be part of facilitating this process for Australian private businesses as a Coraggio Chair is a privilege and my vision is to work collaboratively with business owners towards future-proofing their companies and generating greater employment opportunities.
