CTO @ Connecting Software | Microsoft Regional Director | MVP on Azure and AI
CTO at Connecting Software (www.connecting-software.com) and co-founder of Power Community (www.powercommunity.com), a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower communities around the world with better ICT processes for customer relationship management and customer service. I'm a Microsoft Regional Director (https://rd.microsoft.com/) and MVP for Azure and AI, and a regular speaker at international IT conferences (https://sessionize.com/stefano-tempesta). My interests extend to blockchain and AI-related technologies. Since August 2020, I'm an advisor to the Department of Industry, Australia, on the National Blockchain Roadmap. My current focus is on helping people around the world gain and own their digital identity, with specific attention to the Education sector. I'm also a technology advisor at Carbon Asset Solutions, a climate action and sustainability network with a mission to slow carbon dioxide emissions and remove excess atmospheric CO2 by using regenerative agriculture technologies. I like to consider myself a technology ambassador of beautiful software, experienced in the end-to-end software development practice and agile team leadership. A passionate traveler, a poor musician, and an avid learner of new technologies and (programming) languages. Have a can-do think-positive attitude. People say I live at a different speed. I hold British and Italian citizenship, and speak fluent English, Italian, and terrible Russian.
