Born on the North of the country, for Professional reasons, I know Portugal very well and also a part of Europe. Perhaps because of having an entrepreneurial mother, I’ve always liked doing business and manage people. That’s why a degree in Communication became natural. Nevertheless, I had a lot of management training. During my career, I’ve become director of several companies, helping on restructuring some projects and, at the same time, always with an attitude of always working in cooperation and as a team member.

Frequently I publish opinion articles on management portals on the internet. Networking made that possible, as well as an old dream: teaching in higher education. I’m also responsible for organizing a networking event, where I invite entrepreneurs and managers to come and share their views about best practices. Is was the cover story of one of the largest newspapers in Portugal, Jornal de Notícias. It’s my way of stimulating the economy and making possible for everybody doing business.

In short: over 15 years of experience in management and leadership, in sectors such as automotive, editorial/bookselling, systems and information technology, distribution / retail, construction, rehabilitation / real estate development and utility and facility management. The future? Continuously looking for professional and personal growth and a PhD for the next years…
