These first five years of my professional life allowed me to get to know the marketing and sales world; the ambitious goals, the release of new products and the conquest of new markets. Will and the characteristic energy startup companies have, shaped the fifteen years of learning and growing Optimus and Sonaecom have given me. Now, I am at Sonae MC with a very experienced team and a great passion to face current and future challenges in such a competitive market.
P4S comes with the desire to know the people and teams I come across and work with better.

After the degree in Engineering, with some work in the enterprise market in between, I started my first company. As a student in marketing management, financial management, commercial management, leadership, negotiation, coaching, NLP, EQ-I 2.0 / EQ360 (Emotional Intelligence) and MBTI® and as a manager of several companies I have learned above all else that success rests upon not only technical expertise but above all a leader that understands that success is made with people and it’s people who create value, assertiveness and efficiency. Either as a teacher, or as a company leader, I understands that the path to success rests always in the fundamental unit of every organization – people. P4S, with MBTI® and EQ-i 2.0, helps unravel such path, allowing us to understand how each person, each team, each leader can contribute with their best in pursuit of success.

After the degree at FEP, 9 years followed in the telecommunications sector, where the constant start-up and innovation spirits have made me grow. From Marketing to Sales, with multidisciplinary projects with Systems and Customer Service, I have been developing change management, teams’ development and functional or hierarchical leadership.
The last years have been the time to know the tools that allows to increase skills on people development. With P4S I extended the number of organizations and businesses that I collaborated with, reiforcing abilities and skills. I have been having opportunities in areas since Sales to Systems, in MBA’s degrees or in high potential boards and the results have reinforcing the belief that self-knowledge and personal development are the key of life and of organizations.
When I finished Psychology degree (FPCEUP), with Clinical speciality and master, I began my professional path with psychological consultation and intervention on organizational context. In this last one, I worked with several companies on Food, Automotive Retail, Pharmaceuticals areas as well as Associations and Public Entities, through training processes and personal and career development. Multidisciplinarity and adaptability required on times of quick changes allowed the development of team management and leadership skills.
The enormous interest in the evolution and development of people’s capacities at individual and collective level has always been present throughout my life. From an early age it made sense to help, advise and interact with others and, for this reason, there were several volunteer programs that I joined. Also because of the constant desire to help, I opted for a degree and, consequently, a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, with several internships in the clinical and forensic areas.
