Describe your business in two paragraphs.  

The e-secretary is a bet on the secretariat of the future, especially aimed at small/medium entrepreneurs or individual practice professionals giving them more time to focus on what is essential: the success of their business! Administrative and bureaucratic tasks are my business!

What are your company's Unique Selling Points (USPs) in Portugal or in Ireland or in both markets if present in both?

In both markets , I dare to consider our USPs professionalism, confidence and focused on clients needs.

What achievement/success story(ies) are you most proud of? 

The last 7 years has been the most challenged ones: I have started my holiday rental business in a sustainable basis. Next year we will inaugurate a new space. Early this year, I have started e-secretary, a project I kept in a drawer during 15 years.

What are your business current challenges and in the 2/3 years to come? 

To search for new clients and keep working with the ones we already work with.

What do you think makes Portugal and/or Ireland an attractive destination to conduct your business? 

In my humble opinion, in the near future Portugal will became a country of services.

What sectors do you think will thrive in Portugal and Ireland in the coming years and why? 

Answered already in the previous question.

What is the best business advice you have ever received? 

In case of doubt the answer is always no.

How do you think the IPBN can help you achieve your objectives and what do you expect from your IPBN membership?

I hope to be helpful to IPBN community providing well qualified work.

Favourite destinations in Portugal and why?

Azores islands because of the amazing landscapes and the quality of life.

Favourite destinations in Ireland and why? 

Dunagree, Galway and Dublin different realities of the same country. The most impressive is also the fantastic landscapes and the Irish generosity much alike to Portuguese people. I dare to say that in Europe the Irish people have a lot more in common with Portuguese than other European countries.
