History is everywhere… in our houses, in the places where we live… each one of us has his or her own personal story, regarding which, many people hope for a better future.

How many, though, are aware of the intimate correlation which exists between the past and the future?

It is in the past that the seeds of the future lie dormant, or better, the seeds of all possible futures.

Only those seeds germinate which receive sufficient light, heat and nourishment.

As a historian, my task is to help you shed light on those parts of your personal history which will help  the future you desire to materialise in accordance with your personal vocation.

Regarding humanity, my task as a historian is to shed light on those aspects of the collective past which sustain the life of the human race on Earth and the survival of the species in harmony with the Planet.

What I can do for you | Quotations

It is my profession and vocation in life to analyse places where people live (house, office) and where enterprises are located. The close connection between people’s physical health, the smooth functioning of their relationships and business affairs and the place in which they live and work is still unknown to most. However, it plays a crucial role.

I believe that intervening at this level is a “conditio sine qua non” (an indispensible action). Without this knowledge many interventions to improve people’s health, heal a relationship or help the success of a company materialise are nothing more than palliative. The analysis of place, or better,  knowledge of the spirit of place (genius loci) gets to the root of the problem. Even “simply” becoming aware of these aspects allows one to get tangible results of long duration. It concerns extremely ancient knowledge which can help us in a significant way in this crucial phase in the history of humanity, be it at an individual or collective level.

See the book Topophilia Effect.

My kind of intervention comprises the following modalities:

  1. Analysis of places, private houses, offices, buildings
  2. Teaching activities and/or courses at companies/enterprises, universities and institutions
  3. Individual coaching
  4. Lectures
  5. Surveys
  6. Researches
  7. Authoring activities
  8. Artistic performances

Dr. Roberta Rio

She has a doctorate in History (PhD) and a Degree in Palaeography, Archiving and Diplomatics. She is member of the German Federation of Historians.

Visiting Professor at various universities (Berlin, Vienna, Klagenfurt, Linz, Innsbruck, Glasgow, Athens, Oldenburg, Milan, Bologna etc) and European institutions.

As a historian she proposes a radical renewal of the historical method to keep pace with the times and the present evolutionary phase of the human race. It is that which she calls the Historical Method of the Third Millennium or the New Historical Method.   

With this in view she has elaborated, among other things, a new way of historical inquiry called historical-intuitive method, presented at the University of Glasgow in 2011, in which the use of objective traditional historical method is combined with intuition gained in a state of superconsciousness. With this an interpretation of artefacts and events is accomplished, which is out of reach using classical historical methods.

She hold lectures and seminars und she is the author of numerous articles and books in English, German, Italian and Greek.

The analysis of a strategic investment decision in our enterprise was the reason I first contacted Roberta Rio (PhD) in 2017 and we have been working together ever since.

Roberta worked on this question for the Andechser Scheitz Dairy in a completely new way. She brought the enterprise into a living context with the environment, the company’s aims, and the historical development of the location where we are based.

According to Roberta’s knowledge and her scientific findings the energy and information of a place are stored over many years, centuries and millennia, and are carried over into our times. This information needs to be recognised and taken into consideration in a holistically conceived entrepreneurial management. The result of the investigation was that the investment would not contribute to the overall development of the company in the way required.

Since then I have worked with Roberta in a management coaching relationship. She supports me in formulating strategic objectives and appropriate ways to implement them. Her work is oriented towards a holistic running of the company in which all sectors are considered.

The formulation of strategic, long-term objectives together with consideration of the exceptional challenges of our times, such as climate change, sustainability and efficient, responsible use of resources of our Planet, were all newly defined in the strategy process and as a result the strategy of the enterprise has become more clearly oriented. With Roberta’s support, our work was particularly distinguished during the implementation of the strategic objectives in operative measures. Thanks to this the company management’s practical questions were reflected on, brought into context with the strategy of each individual step of the process, and evaluated.

From the beginning of our collaboration, new possibilities, such as business fields and networks, have opened up for me, and I was able to understand how they are connected to the work with Roberta. For many years I have been working with a sustainable enterprise development in view, and now, due to collaboration with Roberta, we have succeeded in bringing this work to the public attention, where it has been noticed and given due recognition.
