The Founders

We use creative thinking as a change agent and love to experiment, play and create.

Barbara Demuru, Co-founder of Sardinia Escapes.

Co-founder of Sardinia Escapes

I am a healthy food and lifestyle expert and coach. I help our retreat guests to embrace a sensorial and creative approach to food, encouraging them to find their own natural eating style and cook in a creative and tasty way, without sticking to any recipe but just listening to their intuition. I studied macrobiotics in London with Simon Brown, author of “Modern-Day Macrobiotics”, one of the best experts in the field. I combine modern macrobiotics with the lifestyle principles of Sardinian longevity. I like baking delicious healthy cakes and getting my hands dirty in many other ways, including painting and drawing. I showcased my artworks in Italy and Europe (Cagliari, Berlin, London, Cambridge). My passion for food and art has recently prompted me to experiment with a personal approach to Food Design. I am also a certified Tourist Guide and I will be your personal travel mentor in Sardinia.

I design and facilitate one-of-a-kind experiences that amaze and delight our guests. I have more than 10 years' experience in applied creativity and a background in journalism, consulting and project management. I'm currently experimenting a new way to use Design Thinking for personal growth as well as for business innovation. I combine this methodology with other innovative approaches such as Agile, Appreciative Inquiry and Centered Leadership. I have founded an international network of design professionals (onclaude.com) which facilitates product, service and process innovation. I am also a Regional Leader at Leanin.org, which supports women at reaching their ambitions in life and career, and I design and facilitate female leadership programs. A big outdoor life and sports enthusiast, a hiker as well as a yogini, I like to mess with food, especially cooking organic pasta dishes!

100% creative thinking!
