UP2gether’s Brand Ambassador is the service that promotes the brand or company abroad. Today, it has become essential to be present in more countries and markets to be able to have a wider clientele, a profitable business, and a reduction in business risks.

The operations that a company must implement for internationalization cannot be left to chance in this period, but the strategy must be carefully studied in relation to the target clientele sought.

What they say about Me
Traveling is like being part of many lives and my profession has given me many opportunities in this sense, here are some partners I have met over the years and who have left their impression on Linkedin:
I was Barbara’s Commercial Director in 1998 and she already had a completely different idea of mktg from all the other sellers and with really excellent results. I stayed in touch with you following your plans. She always surprises me with her problem-solving skills: she analyzes and solves every problem that submits to her and if she does not know the solution she looks for it, finding it most of the time. Her organizational and interpersonal skills are undoubted, she is an excellent consultant who never leaves you without the necessary support in your projects in Italy or abroad.
Giulio Maria Spreti
A serious and competent professional in the field of internationalization. I saw her at work in various fields related or not to her consultancy activity for companies that aspire to approach new markets and I must say that I have rarely observed such meticulous care in the implementation of projects and in their ‘grounding’. But Barbara’s skills don’t stop there! Thanks to her knowledge of languages and different markets, Barbara is able to follow companies both in specific internationalization projects and in those related to the domestic market.
I collaborated with Barbara both as President of EURODEFI and as a partner of Studio PSM. BARBARA proved to be a very valid reference, for professional competence, breadth of views and relationships, resilience, and ability to challenge each other.
Barbara, a humanly extraordinary person, knows how to relate to the client in an effective way. Thanks to her interventions and her advice collected from customers, we were able as a team to make additions and corrections to the software in the various releases which, in addition to saving us time, have increased its functionality.
Barbara is a pragmatic, intelligent and capable partner for business development activities. She combines a relentless working style with great attention to details, knowledge of the field in which she operates (West Africa), and high motivation and capacity to meet tight deadlines. I think Barbara is great to work with.
Barbara is awake: she assimilates immediately and adds her quid to every proposal she receives. In short, she is endowed with intellectual vivacity, friendliness, and determination. I always feel it with great pleasure
Barbara de Siena: a great spirit of initiative, eclectic and professional.
Barbara turns out to be professionally very good! BC
Barbara, extraordinary consultant for all opportunities on the African continent. She is a serious, responsible person, she deeply knows both the opportunities and the risks and is able to provide real and operational advice. Its direct, linguistic, and operational skills in Africa make it an essential partner for all entrepreneurs who wish to invest in these countries, and who need to know deeply the cultural, linguistic, and professional differences with respect to foreign markets.
I met Barbara in Paris during an edition of the PAP with a large group of Italian companies and she miraculously helped us to solve many technical and organizational problems. She is a very helpful person and her competence in the clothing sector is equal to her knowledge of the French fashion circuit. She later created for us a series of meetings with the French Boutiques at the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Paris, which were followed by various “missions” in Italy. Her great organizational spirit, her perfect command of the language, and her tireless enthusiasm make her the perfect partner to have in French territory.
