Andreia is passionate about learning, teaching, and education. Her first teaching experience was a voluntary position teaching accounting for an NGO in Morocco when she was 19 years old.
Throughout the last ten years, she has lectured in: marketing, entrepreneurship, leadership and strategy related lessons at various top business schools, start-up incubators and other organizations across Europe and America.
She has coached and supervised more than thirty students in writing their Bachelor and Master Thesis and is, therefore, continuously in touch with the latest academic findings.
When you become master in something it is time to start as a student at something else. Chinese Proverb.
Andreia’s passion for education comes with her hunger for knowledge. She loves books and reflective self-learning, but as a rather bad auto didact 😉 she also very much enjoys participating at workshops, lectures as well as trying new formats and master mind groups. Education is one of the best means of power and only through learning can we as individuals and as a society grow and get better. Having recognized this, Andreia invests a considerable fraction of her time and money every year in keeping herself UpToDate as well as learning new skills.
It is this continuous cycle of learning that enables her to often connect the dots with different variables in solving challenges for her clients or identifying relevant trends.
