    Since 2000, Dr. Gustavo has focused on engagement with corporate clients, he has worked with Global 1000 companies around the world, as well as with small, often family run, businesses. As a professional speaker and consultant, he has delivered more than 1,000 presentations on a variety of topics, including corporate culture, emotional intelligence, building trust in organizations, and integrating multi-generational workforce.

If we want to ensure the best possible outcomes for ourselves and our organizations, we must focus on developing an organizational culture that fosters quintessence, and leads to success for all stakeholders, because….Culture Trumps Everything.
