What is your favorite anecdote, that happened during the WBD?
From the academic point of view, many of the topics we discussed during WBD were later very important in the global society agenda. From the 2011 “Trade Ideas” to the 2012 “Managing complexity” all the topics were among the most discussed in the media and in the academics. The participation in the dialogue was a great preparation for the future debates.
From the personal point of view, we have an incredible time during the Dialogue days. Friends from every corner of the world and different traditions all together in Cologne. My Swiss friends taught me some Swiss-German phrases and everyone made fun with my accent and pronunciation.

Are you still in contact with others from that time – what’s your connection to them?
Yes, I am still in contact with many of the others participants. Some of them are very good friends of mine. We visit each other when it is possible!
Did the conference impact your career path?
It helped me to realize how important was for me to be in an international and diverse environment. It certainly is a good value in my cv and thanks to my participation in WBD I had a job interview with Daimler, a company I really admire.

Could you generate value through your participation?
The WBD was my first international conference of a long list. It helped me to see a new world of opportunities. It also helped me to see the value of diversity. The complexity of today’s problems requires different perspectives and point of views.
What are you doing nowadays?
I work in the Argentine National Government with the focus on modernization, open and e-government of local administrations. Argentina is the host country of the G20 2018 Summit and I am also working in the organization during the Argentine Presidency.
