Paolina Virga


I have Italian roots and when I was a child I spent the summer holidays at my aunt’s house in Sicily. There was never any problem that couldn’t be solved with a large plate of pasta. This “Dolce Vita problem-solving strategy” has stayed with me ever since and, whenerver I can, I try to integrate it into my (working) life. When it comes to belonging and reliability, my German me definitely comes to the fore.

Three questions for Paolina Virga

First contact with the digital era?
When I had my first cellphone. Although it had an internet button, I was really afraid of accidentally pressing it, because it would get very expensive very quickly.

Favorite corporate consulting buzzword?
It’s going to be tight, but we’ll get there.

Do we need that?
Wait a minute. Let me get my structure.
