Public and institutional relations. Corporate consulting. The Honorary Consul of South Africa in Genoa. A man of culture and sociality.
In a period of time marked by corruption and conflicts of interest, it is reassuring and inspiring to meet an honest man who is nonetheless closely involved in a vast network of national and international relations.
A long family tradition and the experience of twenty-five years of hard work in a variety of professional fields are the precious assets that Enrico De Barbieri places at the disposal of his clients and their projects.
If you work for a man, in Heaven's name work for him. If he pays wages that supply you your bread and butter, work for him, speak well of him, think well of him, stand by him, and stand by the institution he represents.
I think if I worked for a man, I would work for him. I would not work for him a part of his time, but all of his time. I would give an undivided service or none. If put to the pinch, an ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness. If you must vilify, condemn, and eternally disparage, why, resign your position, and when you are outside, damn to your heart's content.
But, I pray you, so long as you are a part of an institution, do not condemn it. Not that you will injure the institution – not that – but when you disparage the concern of which you are a part, you disparage yourself. And don't forget – "I forgot" won't do in business.
