Bio

Before joining the MBA I worked in a key sales and strategic international position in Mexico where I acquired some fundamental skills useful for strategic planning. These include:
1. Communications skills: Confident and experienced at presenting to groups up to, and over, 300 people. I have delivered training on software, companies’ analysis, international negotiation; pitching strategic plans and new managerial ideas.

2. Relationship management: Built long-term relationships with companies and overseas governments. I ensured punctual and proper resolution on the issues rose resulting in the successful closure of a number of key deals.

3. Analytical skills: Performed sophisticated quantitative and qualitative analysis on market, financial, economical and accounting data as well as contracts of a number of companies and industries.

4. Entrepreneurial: Opened an English school in Mexico City for children without access to bilingual education. The school was the first of its kind in the region; managed penetration strategy, marketing and sales.

5. Negotiations skills. Get discounts on corporate purchases and ensured long term relationship with software providers.


During my MBA I did a consultancy project for Syngenta AG. With a market research as a team we defined a possible routes to market and quantified their financial impact for an innovative crop protection service, based upon robust primary research.

I did my internship at IntelliQ in London, the project was a market research where I have to define the characteristics of a new product the company is about to launch along with the marketing strategy based upon its customers’ needs and wants.
