I undertake consulting, program development, workshop facilitation, executive education, public speaking and research. My work integrates three areas: leadership development, innovation, and change management. I collaborate with organizations to engage the collective intelligence, creativity and experience of their people in order to foster innovation and facilitate change. This way, we address key challenges, drive results and develop people - simultaneously. The issues I address include:

• Developing innovative products, services and solutions
• Building a culture of innovation, entrepreneurship, continuous learning and agility
• Engaging people in organizational change processes
• Creating high-commitment and high-performance teams and organizations
• Developing collective leadership
• Developing emotional intelligence
• Fostering collaboration across areas
• Sharing best practices and facilitating learning from experience

I earned a B.A. in Economics and Ph.D. in Psychology, both from Yale University. Currently, I teach in Executive Education, MBA and Executive Masters programs at the Católica-Lisbon School of Business and Economics. I have given keynote speeches and invited talks in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese. Formerly, I was a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Surrey, worked in business and journalism, and co-directed an award-winning documentary film.
