Nowadays as an independent consultant, my main strength is to get close to clients everyday challenges and pain points to discover opportunities through the job to be done lens. With that input, I collaborate with companies to design strategies to take care of those pain points standing from their main competitive strengths. Always respecting the brand´s identity and looking for a purpose beyond the economic results.
