Dear readers, I am back!
After deserved and deeply enjoyed summer break from brazilglobal.net this fellow blogger is back with news:
I am now writing for Forbes. Check it out at:
This year has been very intense and here I share a personal summary of what I have been up to.
In the beginning of the year, I worked as project manager in Guinea Conakry (West Africa) for Bollore Group (Fortune 500 French group). Vale was developing a major iron ore mine and related infrastructure in the region of Simandou, Guinea. Odebrecht had been selected by vale as EPCM for this 5 billion dollars project. Bolloré Group branches involved in international logistics and Africa logistics aimed at providing logistics service for the project. I played a very commercial role; my main responsibility was to assist in securing this business by providing adequate support to customer’s operations. Therefore, among other remarkable things, I learned a lot about two of Brazil’s largest companies, Vale and Odebrecht.
Then, I went to the New York to represent ESCP Europe at the headquarters of the United Nations. Being back in the city where I lived during my undergraduate studies was great; my delegation was rewarded for our achievements and I had the chance to meet many friends I hadn’t seem for a while.
In May, right after New York, I went to China to launch my own business related to football. It was a great experience but the differences were so extreme that it was the first time I felt I was in another planet. This erratic blogger had already worked in Hong Kong and heard that mainland China was totally different. Among diverse projects, I was also representing CBF international programs and promoting my brother’s philanthropic association.
Things worked out very well in China but now I am back in Paris. Therefore, if you are in the “city of light” and would like to meet to discuss about Brazil or to tell me how much you hate my writing/ opinions feel free to contact me. If you are not based in Paris but would like to talk to me, don’t hesitate on emailing me.
I look forward to sharing my views about Brazil and engaging in discussions with everyone who participates with thoughtful comments.
