Top Experiences - Massimo Bagnasco

TOP EXPERIENCES - Globe-trotters share their ways to success is a series of encounters, between October 2021 and May 2022, with guests who have built their successful experiences by living within different cultural, work and social scenarios all over the world.
The initiative is part of the traditional series TOP EXPERIENCES, which started back in 2013, where personalities who have distinguished themselves in companies, organizations, institutions meet and share with our community, particularly our students, their professional and personal experience.
