Over the past 38 years, I have developed extensive expertise in a number of areas and I am invited to speak regularly at conferences, senior management and leadership offsites and other corporate events. I am also invited as subject matter expert to provide thought leadership to various types of events and think tanks. I am a clear and engaging communicator, keen storyteller, and I have a wonderful way of connecting with people at a very personal level. My public speaking engagements are in Spanish, English and Portuguese…three languages that I am equally fluid in.
