I am an Italian-Brazilian who grew up in Brazil and lived in Australia, Singapore, and the USA. I worked in five different, continents managing professionals with different cultural backgrounds and experience first-hand the challenges that we face when dealing with different cultures.

 

I worked for 18 years at Yahoo, Microsoft, and Amazon, where I held positions such as Country Manager and Vice-President of Sales. In 2018, I decided to leave my job at Amazon and start this fantastic journey. That's when I founded 7WOOD Consulting. My objective is to transform the workplace by helping companies embrace diversity and inclusion, and executives to lead, collaborate, grow, learn, and teach. 

I hold a BS in Economics from Universidade Candido Mendes (Brazil) and an MBA in Marketing from Pontificia Universidade Catolica (Brazil). I also have certifications in Organizational Coaching (University from British Columbia (Canada), Strategic Management Program - CNI from INSEAD (France), IOT: Business implications and opportunities from MIT (USA), and a Basic Mediation Training from the Dispute Resolution of King County (USA).

Values

 

01/Authenticity

We are genuine and truthful to our beliefs. We respect differences, welcome diversity, and value people that are honest, transparent, and ethical. Part of being authentic is standing up for what you believe in and speaking the truth as it seems to you, even if it is not what others want to hear.

02/ Curiosity

We are inquisitive because we love to explore and learn. We are open-minded and get excited when we make a new discovery. We grab our energy and insights by asking questions and listening with attention.

03/ Humor

We believe a world full of smiles is a better world. Laughter relieves stress and boredom, boosts engagement and well-being, and spurs not only creativity and collaboration but also analytic precision and productivity.

04/ Compassion

We foster a culture of kindness. When leaders are fair and self-sacrificing, their team will experience elevation. Compassionate, friendly, and supportive coworkers tend to build higher-quality relationships with others at work.

05/ Enthusiasm

When we enjoy what we do, and we are excited about what we are building, we become electric, upbeat, devoted, and even obsessed. Then, we infect everyone around with the same energy and positivity.
