Hello! I'm Renato and serve as lead educator for new technology, business and consumer trends, and digital marketing strategy at the Floriology Institute. This is one of my primary roles as the Vice President of Digital Strategy and Education at BloomNet, a premier florist services company.

I evangelize technology benefits and best practices through a regular column in Floriology magazine, presentations at floral industry events, share insights on social media and chat (yes, on the phone) with BloomNet members to help solve their challenges.
I served as an active volunteer for the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) where I chaired the ASAE Technology Council, was a founding member of the Young Professionals Committee and continue to be active as a Diversity Executive Leadership Scholar (DELP).
