Motivation
I used to think there was a trade-off between life and business.
Either choosing a striving job with long hours and jeopardizing life outside of it, or have strong relationships and time for hobbies, but accept more limited career ambitions.
And it was in the middle of that adversity that I learnt you can have it all
I started reflecting on why I wasn’t happy. Rejection & Adversity are like downslides, with a trampoline at the bottom. If you hit the trampoline just right, it will propel you higher than you’ve ever been.
I’m here to help you. No BS.
You can have a great professional and personal life at the same time. I’ve helped many people achieve the life they want with my high-performance and happiness methodologies.

"He is personable and strong at building and sustaining relationships, he is spiritual, and he still manages to be driven and ambitious (...) He has an ability to effect positive change with time and, at that, change the most difficult thing he can… to change himself."

I have known Nuno for about a decade. What first impressed on me was his knowledge of the telecom and tech industry, but soon I found that although he was indeed an expert in these industries, there was far more to him than this. He is personable and strong at building and sustaining relationships, he is spiritual, and he still manages to be driven and ambitious. I have also seen his extreme resilience through his personal path. He has an ability to effect positive change with time and, at that, change the most difficult thing he can… to change himself. I consider him a business leader, but, more importantly, a good friend.

"I also saw him change his leadership and management style through time, and how he became a much more efficient and effective leader and manager (...) I was impressed by his knowledge and work ethic, but ultimately, his ability to change at a fast pace is what impressed me the most."

I worked with Nuno extensively while at McKinsey in some of the most complex environments a consultant can operate in and was always impressed by his focus on impact, at times painfully so; on real insight and foresight; and on bringing real value to our clients. I also saw him change his leadership and management style through time, and how he became a much more efficient and effective leader and manager. I was impressed by his knowledge and work ethic, but ultimately, his ability to change at a fast pace is what impressed me the most

"Nuno is first and foremost a creative thinker, who comes up with pathways and solutions that often are outside of the box. He is also steadfast in the storm, he will not let knee-jerk emotions dictate the order of the day."

Nuno and I have worked extensively together as advisors, co-investors, board members. Nuno is first and foremost a creative thinker, who comes up with pathways and solutions that often are outside of the box. He is also steadfast in the storm, he will not let knee-jerk emotions dictate the order of the day. He stays focused on the big picture direction, though does not hesitate to deep dive as needed as well. As an independent board member in a company I had invested in, he delivered constant operational, strategic and governance value, including when we successfully transitioned leadership. Nuno is one of my key go-to advisors when I am looking for independent, trusted, business advice.

"Nuno has become a sought-after leader full of wisdom, and I look forward to seeing him spread his words and thoughts with more people and continue to inspire."

I first met and worked with Nuno about 14 years ago when I was making a transition from a consultant fresh from MBA to a project manager at McKinsey. Being a consumer person, I think I was quite overwhelmed with the project and the topic. Nuno was pivotal in how we delivered the project successfully: he brought deep subject matter expertise with perspective; breadth as well as depth; credibility with humbleness; and most of all, passion for the topic so the project team and the client exec could push the boundaries and explore possibilities. Since then, we both took on different career choices in different countries – I moved to Singapore for a regional role and then to London to head up global strategy for a multinational company, while Nuno took a bold move to start his own VC in the US. Over that decade, Nuno has been a great friend and a mentor for me with perspective on strategic topics, career, adversity and inclusion, life and the world, and essentially perspective on what matters. Once a young, successful leader, Nuno has become a sought-after leader full of wisdom, and I look forward to seeing him spread his words and thoughts with more people and continue to inspire.

Nuno is an outstanding strategic thinker, business developer and leader. He has a great ability to see the big picture while also understanding the minute details, which is a combination rare to find. He has great analytical, negotiation and relationship skills and is a passionate team player. During our time together at GSMA and through his leadership we set the organization to achieve an impressive growth over the course of 10 years, which no other trade association has ever achieved. One of the best leaders and managers I have worked with and I would jump at the chance to work with him again.
