In high school, Bruno had a blast organizing a tour of Nordic countries for his choir. He’s now enjoying donating his time and considerable talent to nonprofits who need help with performance management.
Driven by innovation
I do pro bono because I wanted to find ways to volunteer some of my time and thought that doing pro bono work could be fun and useful to nonprofits. When I do pro bono, I bring with me diverse professional experience working for global companies. I am driven by innovation and appreciate nothing more than bringing a team or organization to its full potential. I like science and technology. I see them as enablers. After a solid tenure in R&D and IT, I decided to join HR organizations and help them leverage available technologies to fulfill their critical mission: optimize talent and enable change!
A pro bono engagement I’m particularly proud of was my first engagement with Taproot+ for a nonprofit in New York. I helped them revise their job descriptions and deploy a simple performance management process. I built templates and small guides for their deployment and use. They were very well-received and I enjoyed delivering them.
Discovering a whole new world
An unexpected outcome of my pro bono work was the discovery of a whole new world for me. It is immensely refreshing to see how dedicated the people working within nonprofit organizations are and what small teams can achieve. On my pro bono journey I hope to make a difference, as small as it may be, to the causes embraced by the nonprofit organizations I will be working with and helping.
