Why should we care?

Rio de Janeiro.

The city has been called one of the most beautiful places on earth.
And in a few weeks will be home to the 2016 Summer Olympics.

The eyes of the world will be riveted on its spectacular landscape; and… its environmental problems.

The city is heavily polluted.

It’s polluted by its residents: entire communities in the region lack sewage collection.
And it’s polluted by the petroleum industry: one of its biggest refineries is right on the banks of the Guanabara Bay.
Broken eco-barriers allow chemicals to leak into the water.

Why should we care?
Maybe because our place of birth is Earth.
And what happens thousands of miles away,
sooner or later,
one way or another,
it will affect us.

Mariana Fieraru, an Eastern European transplant, fell in love with her new home shortly after landing in New York. She "discovered" pizza! Years later she still loves pizza. And so do her two feathered-kids, Sunny and Flipper

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
Its mission: to make learning fun! And easy.

Through its training, consulting, and publications OBI builds bridges of knowledge to take you from where you are to
where you want to go. Using a mix of serious, informal, analytical, and optimistic approach, OBI truly makes learning fun.
