What I enjoy most about being a project manager is:

the opportunity to develop different projects, know different and interesting people, companies and places around the world.

The three most important skills I use to successfully deliver projects are:

People Management, Project Planning, Stakeholders Strategy

I build and nurture my professional network by:

Working hard, studying a lot and sharing knowledges by teaching.

At the start of my career, the one thing I wish I had known is:

How to deal with different people and culture to met the goals of the project.

Women who have inspired me so far in my career journey are:

Luiza Helena Trajano

The most valuable advice I have ever been given is:

We depend of people to delivery results. Methods and best practices is not enough. Its simple but not easy.

My advice for women on finding success as a project manager is:

Don’t work as a man. Be a woman! Have family, have children. Dance. Study hard, work hard but find the balance between personal and professional life.
