About me

My work experience is focused on brand strategy and brand management, mainly in an advertising agency environment, in Portugal. I worked for brands in various market sectors: automotive, sports, tourism, education, public service, food, among others. As a Brand Strategist I was responsible for auditing and defining a brand through market research and competitive environment, trends and consumer profile analysis and ultimately for defining the positioning, tone of voice and insights for the design and advertising team. Also, I was in charge of presenting the strategic work to the client, as well as the resulting creative output. I also developed skills in Customer Management as Account Planner and Brand Manager, as well as Community Management. As a Community Manager I administrated the online presence of a luxury furniture design brand, creating relevant content on various social networks and platforms that added value to the brand through the affinity of its audience. I am highly motivated by an energetic work environment and the opportunity to deal with different people and experiences.
