Lead at Microsoft Italy
Roberto D'Angelo is a Microsoft Italy employee who has given speeches on the difficulties he and his family have faced. D'Angelo and his wife Francesca Fedeli discovered shortly after their son was born that he had experienced a prenatal seizure, affecting his motor skills and the right side of his brain.
D'Angelo's speeches have focused on his experiences as a parent of a disabled child. He stresses the importance of seeing disadvantaged children as an opportunity rather than a failure or an obstacle. D'Angelo says that while a positive approach may not speed the recovery process in these children, it helps. D'Angelo reminds parents that their children are the best thing they will ever produce.
