Originally from a sumptuous little Italian town by the sea, Alessia envisioned to have a positive impact on society by creating a new movement. This is how she embarked on an adventure that changed the course of her life aka euforia which she co-founded! We are so lucky to have her astonishing skills in facilitation and program design in the team. Passionate about wellbeing, Alessia as Chief Empowerment Officer is responsible for creating a work environment that promotes the cohesion and development of the talents of all team members. This competence is key in her work with organisations such as UNITAR, the state of Geneva, hospice general, etc. We admire her for her perpetual quest of new challenges that make her grow and that allows organisations and individuals to work together in a sustainable world.
Severin is one of our dinosaurs who started his euforia “career” in 2010, only three years after euforia was founded. His facilitation abilities are one of a kind, he listens to a group with his heart and knows exactly what energy is needed at every single moment. This superpower allows him to touch gently and with no force at all the souls of people and organizations so they can expand a little bit their attitude towards a better world and needed changes inside themselves. He is decorated with an HSG master title in International Affairs and with a mind full of jokes, joie-de-vivre, and patience. It is a gift to have Severin in our team.
A few years ago Malika decided to come back from Mexico to join the euforia adventure. From there she brought back some funky latino dance moves. She also brought back her valuable partnership skills that she developed in Mexico working in the social entrepreneurial field, allowing euforia to grow through amazing collaborations. Malika is known and loved for her smile and her authentic kindness but watch out she is also fearless and her creative brain has no boundaries! She always comes up with new ambitious and meaningful project ideas and is not afraid to implement them on a big scale. With all her energy she is involved in our youth programs, corporate trainings, inclusion partnerships, budget management, and fundraising projects!
Sonia holds the keys not only to the office, the mailbox and the cellar but pretty much to all things related to our heartbeat Circle. I.e the circle responsible for all support functions within euforia. So in that sense she is the backbone of our team. She has to keep things tidy and structured in sea of overflowing creativity and funkiness. For that she must be strict and systematic, but always with a gentle, very human, touch. Let’s call her our Iron Lady with velvet gloves.Sonia embodies many of euforia values, and there’s an amazing story to illustrate her dedication and impact. Before joining us, she had a very comfortable position in a major fashion company but she felt the need to help contribute to improve the state of the world through her job. Hence she summoned the courage to quit and decided to look for her dream impact job. She chose us and we’re really happy about it. ;-)
Oliver is our senior addition to the euforia team and to the opportunities circle. His eagerness to learn more about purposeful business and teal organizations are two key aspects that brought him to euforia. He brings a strong background in corporate education and digital communication. Oli’s network is very diverse, ranging from traditional manager to radical change makers. In his daily work, he connects euforia with other organisations to co-create transformative trainings. A key interest of Oli lies in new ways of working, exemplified in his working style that includes working from the rooftop terrace, from his second home in the Grison mountains or anywhere else that is inspiring him. With his curiosity and his creativity, Oliver is building bridges to unleash full human potential at work and brings real added-value to the opportunities team.
Just discussing with Silene will give you the motivation to change the world and have the courage to endeavor the projects that make you closer to your dreams. Want to witness this super power? Just listen to one of her “Power has no gender” podcast she leads at euforia. Her experience in advocacy for human rights and disarmament in organisations (such as Amnesty international), in travelling the world, in gender topics and the millions of books she has read, makes her the perfect partner in crime for a project! After being a volunt’hero at euforia for several years in France, Silene made us the honor to come and boost the youth programmes in Switzerland. She is a talented facilitator and coordinator, which makes her the perfect person to bring imp!act, (r)evolution lab and other youth programmes to the next level. Her strength to empower others is magic and her special ingredients are a deep wish for an equal and sustainable world.
Nicoletta, aka „Nico“, is our bundle of energy and positivity, and anybody who knows her knows that her brilliant laugh can light up a room in a second! But don’t be fooled: behind her joyful cheerfulness, Nico impresses with her professionalism and knowledge. She worked as an eval-ninja with a perfect mix of rigour and out-of-the box thinking and took on the hard task of revolutionating our precious impact evaluation system to make it „sexier“! After a break to work in a United Nations agency as an Evaluation Research Analyst in the beautiful city of Rome – which coincidentally allowed her to add yet another language to her amazing languages toolkit that would make any linguist jealous! –, she is back as part of the fun(d)raising team, and we couldn’t be happier!
Behind Camille's super friendly sunshine smile, this powerful woman stands strong in her quest to change the world. Just like water, she flows and adapts to any situation with strength and courage. Camille successfully founded metáfora, a company that masters the tough art of translations into French. Besides language translations, she is an expert in translating energies. Camille understands people around her, and her inner peace flows into every exchange you have with her. She manages to integrate different strings of thoughts and combining them into a beautiful bouquet of ideas. Camille brings all of this to the euforia team; it particularly makes her a unique facilitator and community builder. Camille's 'Oui, let's go!' attitude shows she is always up for living each moment with intensity... all with astonishing multi-tasking talent! She rides the waves on a surfboard just as she brings life to the Bern community: with devotion, resilience and blissful joy.
