I build bridges

I am Cristina Santamarina: technology consultant, cofounder at The Neon Project, conference speaker, and full time human.

I build bridges because my mission is to save the distance between organisations with complex problems and the technology they need to resolve them.




A woman in technology

In the past years I have worked in technology teams developing different roles like project manager, product owner or technology advisor, collecting and documenting requirements, discussing implementation details with developers, and rolling out projects.

Today I am a co-founder of The Neon Project, a technology consulting company. We are a team of 15 professionals working with clients around the world in technology projects, specially regarding blockchain, conversational interfaces or data and with a focus on delivering value to our customers and defining processes that enable us to be more efficient.



My work in West africa during the ebola response changed the way I see technology.




I am passionate about learning and sharing. This brought me to public speaking in 2012 and, since then, I have delivered talks in over fifty conferences, community events, universities and business schools. The topics I speak about include women in technology, conversational interfaces, artificial intelligence, digital transformation, remote work.

I am open for speaking engagements, learn more on my speaking page and get in touch if you want me to present at your event, be a guest lecturer at your program, or have me moderate a panel or mentor a hackathon.
