THE PROP: Being part of a global team helps Giana DiLeonardo maintain a work-life balance.
Partner – DiLeonardo International
Why did you select your profession?
Originally I started down a different career path, but the desire to be in a creative environment led me back to my roots.
Where do you see yourself professionally in 10 years?
I hope to see our market expanding in South America and I hope to be spending more time on the ground in our overseas offices.
What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?
Only pack what you can carry!
What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?
Listen intently: This is how you learn rather than show what you know. Eat adventurously and travel obsessively.
How do you keep a work-life
Many of my colleagues are in Asia so the time difference works to our advantage. I can take care of my girls and personal commitments, tuck them in and then start the night shift. My wonderful husband and our talented team at work fill the gaps. •
