I knew Ricardo in 2001. Few years later, I received his invitation to join his company. Since then, he became my reference of professionalism and dedication. More than that, he is my definition of "visionary"; he is always ahead of his time and tendencies! Ricardo is also an example generosity. Everything that I know about project management, mostly, I have learned from him some way through work experience, classes, books and advices. He uses to help and support his team and counsel them on their carreers.”

Besides being the most knowledgeable person in Project Management that I know, Ricardo is a great partner to work with. He always brings great opportunities for us to work together and is always negotiating with a Win-Win Situation in mind. If you have any project management issues that you need help, he is the guy to talk to.

Ricardo is an example of a communication specialist and speaker. Also, he is a fantastic author and writer, always receptive to talk, to answer questions and to help people with his simple way. He works hard to disseminate the project management knowledge in Brazil and in the world. Without a doubt he influenced a lot of people to use PM best practices and I suggest strongly that you read his books!
