In Chapter 13 of 19 in his 2010 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, education entrepreneur and Global Campus (www.globalcampus.com) founder Maurizio de Franciscis shares how he decided what mattered to him and channeled his energy to achieve it. As a change agent, de Franciscis tries to make change happen by looking past outsider expectations and associated anxiety inducing cultural pressures. Instead, he views life as a game with a clear endpoint and starts playing to actualize his ambition with Global Campus. Before founding Global Campus, de Franciscis worked at General Electric. He graduated from Universita degli Studi di Roma - La Sapienza - and earned his MBA from INSEAD.
