In what can you mostly excel with our help
We provide you with the most effective contents, insights, methods, and tools in the following areas.
STRATEGY AND BUSINESS PLANNING
As individual consultants and teachers, we have been working in the areas of strategic management and business planning since the early eighties of last century, in several countries. We pioneered the use of integrated spreadsheets as tools for supporting the development of business plans and assessing the market and financial viability of innovative ventures, and designed original strategic simulations that have been used for many years in different educational and managerial contexts.
Complementing marketing and business strategies with digital and innovative tools has always been at the heart of our approach. We have been among the first to implement a CRM system for an Italian company well before the CRM acronim was coined, our first website back in 2001 was a corporate blog well before the application of the blog concept to the corporate world. We are patners with Warp 7, a digital marketing and communication agency, to effectively tackle the digital side of our projects.
GLOBAL MARKETING AND BRANDING
Having worked in more than 30 countries and met hundreds of entrepreneurs and managers in many different industries, we developed an in-depth ability to
identify the key competitive success factors depending on very diverse market and competitive contexts. This experience has been used to design and develop our
business games on international marketing, used for years in several leading business schools.
QUANTITATIVE MODELS FOR MANAGEMENT
We have a passion for models and, particularly, for complementing intuition, experience, and managerial judgment with measurement and algorithms. Most of these algorithms, also based on proved decision-making theories, inferential statistics, and artificial intelligence are at the heart of the projections on competitive behavior in our business games on strategic management and international marketing.

I had the pleasure to work with Nestpan International on several different projects, and all of these experiences were very enriching for all of us. NI’s professionals still represent an important asset for our Agency.

Nestplan has developed a thorough, robust and tested approach to help clients deploy effective market strategies by challenging conventional thinking and identifying opportunities for sustainable competitive advantages.
New York & London
The book “Il Nuovo Marketing Strategico,” by Gandellini, Garroni and Pace, all editions of which I have purchased, has been a source of inspiration for me since my first steps in strategic marketing in the 1990s. The marketing plan template with the first spreadsheet in Lotus 123, which I updated with new technologies, is still relevant after so many years.
CEO & Founder
Nestplan International’s Giorgio Gandellini has been, and will be, very helpful in supporting the startups of our region in the “Startimpresa” program of Confindustria Chieti-Pescara, thanks to his interactive and simulation-based approach, and his focus on planning, data management, and decision-making.
The courses taught by Giorgio Gandellini in ICE’s CorCe Master’s program were the most stimulating and exciting, the ones that really gave me food for thought, opened my head and made me understand what marketing is. In recent years, many of his comments have accompanied the development of my career; it was a privilege to meet him in my educational journey.
