Born in Italy and both educated and raised in Canada, Baldo has built a large inventory of C-level successions and advisory successes that have led to his current endorsed standing among a network that spans the globe.

Throughout his career, Baldo has received substantial media coverage involving personal/professional interviews on his work and tech integrations along with coverages on his published book entitled ‘The Banker Who Saved His Soul.'
Being a progressive fueled by mission excellence, nothing makes Baldo happier than driving worldwide academic/business advancement through UX technologies such as blockchain, AI and asset tokenization, and doing so all while ensuring the community involved has positive constructive experiences along the way. This, in conjunction with his motivating energy to deliver futuristic concepts into education and reputation as a longstanding change agent, is what shaped Baldo into the forward-thinking leader he is today – one who consistently strives to improve the quality and efficiency of the dynamic industry sectors and bolster the modernized world as a whole.
