Marco Ronzani

Marco holds both Italian and Swiss citizenships, studied law and philosophy in Basel and Bologna and was a researcher for several years at the Max Planck Institute for Criminal Law and Criminology in Freiburg/Br.-Germany focusing on initiating social change by development of the law-system. He earned his PhD (Dr. iur.) from the University of Basel with a thesis on disfunctionality of criminal law in environmental protection. 

In 1994, after living in Italy and the USA, Marco opened a law firm in Basel with colleagues. In 1998, after being trained by different masters, he started his career as professional negotiator, conflict manager and mediator. Successes in his new activities lead him to become a consultant for organizational development (OD) guiding and supporting changes in larger social systems. His goal to find a more simple and effective way to initiate and support more sustainable change brought him in contact with the new generation of constellations work of Matthias Varga von Kibéd and Insa Sparrer and the Solution Focus approach of the School of Milwaukee. He followed a 4-year formation in systemic structural constellation work with both masters and became a fellow in solution focus of Insoo Kim Berg and Luc Isebaert. So Marco had achieved his goal being able to initiating and amplifying self steered and organized lasting change in behaviour by changing attitudes, habits and beliefs of individuals, groups and organizations – simple, elegant and effective. 

In 2008 Marco founded together with friends the Ronzani Company, a group of excellent consultants for Solution Focused Organizational Development. They support projects of change of organizational culture in Europe and India.

At the same time Marco formed the methodology of a more simple and effective conflict management and mediation process on the basis of Solution Focus and systemic attitudes and beliefs of the coach and mediator to enhance his ability to initiating and amplifying lasting change. 

Marco likes to think out of the box und to improvise joyfully. He lives in Basel/Switzerland with his wife Franziska von Blarer and their two children.
