In this episode, we delve into the fascinating world of innovation and design with our distinguished guest, Mauro Porcini, PepsiCo’s first-ever Chief Design Officer. Mauro has been instrumental in infusing design thinking into PepsiCo’s culture, leading a new approach to innovation that significantly impacts the company’s product platforms and brands. He is also the host of the successful video podcast “In Your Shoes – with Mauro Porcini,” where he interviews inspiring personalities from the global creative community.
