Maria has worked as a consultant for CEOs, specialising in top-tier international media coverage and collaboration with global institutions such as the United Nations.
Maria worked with the CEO of Formula E – the new global electric car racing championship from start-up stage. It expanded to ten global cities including New York, Beijing, Paris and London.
It attracted investment from Leonardo Di Caprio, Richard Branson, VISA and Jaguar.
Maria’s passion for global issues (particularly the power of sport to discuss sustainability and air pollution) inspired her to initiate and coordinate global partnerships and events with institutions such as the United Nations, Greenpeace, Harvard and UK government organisations.
The combination of her multilingual skills, (English, Spanish, Italian, French and Arabic), alongside her journalistic nous and strong industry contacts allows Maria to secure top-tier international media interviews all over the world.
These have included: TEDx, Financial Times, The Times, The New York Times, BBC World, CNN International, Al Jazeera, France 24, Russia Today, Telemundo and Univision.
Maria’s corporate experience includes starting a communications consultancy to support European corporations/CEOs with their positioning across British and US media.
She is passionate about bridging cultural media differences and helping non-British CEOs navigate the British media and speak out without ‘fear or favour’.
