Biography

I’m the Manager Director of agile21. I’m most passionate about getting to the bottom of how (and why) things tick, and have focused on qualitative and quantitative primary management tools for more a decade. 

At agile, I research and implement global trends among senior executives and organizations across any industry and topic you can imagine, from strategic planning and coaching, cloud computing, management and green technology to diversity, orthodoxies and radical management to agile.

I received an master’s degree in advanced project management from the Catholic Lisbon School of Business and Economics, as well as a master’s degree in Entrepreneur and Innovation management. 

 

Agile21 group have agile Innovation for business analysis, agile numbers for economic and financial and agile laboratories for software development.


I've a strong personal drive. Targets and rewards motivate me strongly, but a major incentive for me is the idea of creating a legacy and wielding influence over others. I like being in the front, driving projects forward, but at the end of the day, I provide the push to get things done.

On the flip side, sometimes I can be a bit arrogant, and impatient with teamwork if not delivering and, by ourselves we don't know the WHY-if.

Persistent and open to all new things, I love the combination for bringing a new idea through the various phases of development and execution. “Where there is a will, there is a way,” is perhaps the best way to describe me. I'm perfectionists and tend to be workaholic, most likely because it takes an incredible amount of dedication, time and hard work to push through an idea or initiative that hasn’t yet caught on. 

I take deep pride in my achievements, but I also enjoy sharing my expertise with others; I am an intense colleague who feels passionately about what I do. Because I'm so persistent, even in the face sometimes considerable pushback, is crucial to the innovation cycle. I tend to be consider as a risk-taker.
