Brand management 
to relaunch and boost your Business.

ELISA CASTAGNA

Dynamic and determined, result driven.
In love with new experiences,
never stop discovering, observing, absorbing. 

Chronic traveler. Tireless sportif. My motto is #workhardplayharder.

For 20 years I have played roles of Sales & Marketing, specialising in Business Innovation.

My approach combines strategic thinking with on-field action to boost Business Development.


Passionate about people behaviour and trend scouting, I lived and worked in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Spain and managed Business Development projects in Europe, Asia, the USA and Mexico.


My mission is to support Entrepreneurs and Organisations to grow and result more competitive, innovating their Value Proposition - business model, product or service - to result more competitive connecting with their target market.

"When the wind of change blows,
somebody builds 
walls,
others build windmills"

- Chinese proverb
#neverstop #keepgoing

MILESTONES OF MY APPROACH

INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

Bringing my on-field experience of business development to support Organisations to identify their market opportunities in Italy and abroad, scouting out new customers, establishing connections and building valuable relationships.

Every market has its own distribution structure, culture and negotiation attitude: I believe in a personalised approach as a key to succeed.


BRAND KNOW-HOW

Managing the most updated Marketing and Business Innovation methodologies and tools, I support crafting a Value Proposition able to establish an emotional connection between Organisations and their Customers, identifying the Key Success Factors that drive Customers' choice.

PRAGMATIC APPROACH

At Entrepreneurs and Organisations side not only to define the Strategy to achieve their goals, but translating that Strategy into a step-by-step Action Plan.

I believe that implementation is as important as defining the way: that's why I can act as

as a Project Manager to turn the plan into reality.
