"As a seasoned sales professional and entrepreneur with over 16 years of experience, I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise to share with others. My journey began when I left my home country of Portugal in search of new opportunities, which gave me a unique perspective on life and culture. Moving to a different country and learning to communicate in a new language helped me understand the importance of adaptability and communication in business.
I pursued a business education and graduated from Solent Southampton University in 2009. After graduation, I embarked on my own business venture, a vacation rental marketing company. Despite my best efforts, the business did not succeed, and I had to close it. However, this experience proved to be, a valuable learning opportunity that allowed me to hit the restart button personally and professionally.
I then built a successful sales career by learning from my past experiences and making necessary changes to achieve balance in my life. Additionally, I have played a pivotal role in the growth of several successful start-ups, including working for global companies such as Tripadvisor, Cisco Systems, NTT, and Softomotive (now part of Microsoft).
Now, I am dedicated to helping ambitious entrepreneurs scale their businesses efficiently by sharing my knowledge and experiences. My goal is to empower entrepreneurs to reach their full potential through guidance, support, and expertise in their chosen field."
"How can I help you?"
"As a B2B Sales & Marketing expert and start-up mentor, I bring a unique and tailored approach to each individual business. With over 16 years of experience in sales and entrepreneurship, I understand that every business is unique and has different needs. My goal is to support businesses in avoiding mistakes and scaling efficiently, by guiding them to unlock their full potential through innovative thinking, new ways of working, and effective structures.
I am particularly passionate about meeting businesses wherever they are on their journey and aligning their core values and strategies with their actions. Together, we will create a customized and actionable plan that brings their vision to life. My expertise as both a mentor and a board advisor allows me to offer a holistic approach to business growth."
"What makes me tick?"
"I value creativity, innovation, and impact. I have a passion for early stage start-ups and find joy in helping businesses break through roadblocks and realize their full potential. I am driven by a desire to make things work better and seeing people succeed. In addition to my work, I love to travel and have had the opportunity to visit many countries around the world. While I consider Portugal to be my home, I currently reside in England, which has become my second home."
