I really enjoyed working with Flavio. He has expert knowledge in many areas, especially in SEO and website management. He has a strong analytical mind while being creative at the same time. And he is still very eager to learn new things and to improve every single day.

Beside his knowledge, Flavio is just a great person to work with. I was really impressed by his strong will to make things done. You will never hear a “we cannot make this” – there is always an “ I will figure out how we can do this”. He was an invaluable support for the whole International team at ifolor.

I highly recommend him and I am sure that Flavio will be an enrichment for any company and team.

From the moment I met Flavio he demonstrated that he is extremely intelligent, diligent and goal oriented. He is keenly devoted to his work and never gives up on anything. Flavio is always looking for new means of learning, he is adaptive and all in all an incredibly enjoyable person to be around.

There is no questioning that Flavio has a strong grip on SEO. He consistently took on challenging roles and then performed over and above what was expected of him.

Although there are many strong qualities that Flavio possess, his biggest strength is his positive attitude and his ability to stimulate enthusiasm and inspire everyone around him.

Having worked on a major project with Flavio, I know how focused and driven he is. Not only this, he motivated our group to produce a high quality presentation and report to which we were awarded great marks.
Flavio is lively and brings energy and enthusiasm to his work and colleagues. He was a great person to study with and was always helpful.
Not to mention that the ‘Study Blog’ came in useful for many of us while studying at Ipag. A great all round person who I’m sure will continue to do big things in the future.

During my time at HolidayCheck, Flavio was always there to help me and actively encouraged me to ask any questions and for his advice. He proved to be incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and over the year, I developed a sound knowledge of SEO and online-marketing from him.

He is full of ideas and always pushed himself to beat his targets and improve his working methods such as the SEO dashboard that he created.

I strongly recommend Flavio and wish him all the success in his future
