Maria Paula Oliveira - About Me

Hi! Welcome to my corner in the cyber space.

This is me (at least the bit I’m willing to publicly share):

– I’m a business consultant with clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to start-ups. I help them understanding their markets, building powerful strategies and innovating in their businesses. In the corporate world, I led Experian’s jump from the 72nd to the 2nd position as Brazil’s most innovative company – in two years! Check a prize here and another one here; a dissertation here.

– I’m a writer: Idea Market (Finalist for the Harvard Business Review/McKinsey/MIX M-Prize), As 10 Dimensões da Gestão da Inovação

– I’m a speaker: I’ve shared my ideas and practice on strategy and innovation management with audiences in Brazil (with IQPC here and here; with FIEP; with the Open Innovation Center; or here), Argentina and Colombia

– I’m an MBA teacher, mainly for innovation management programs. Check out these videos (in Portuguese) from the great MBA 60 seconds initiative.

– I’m a blogger, and I was named Top 40 Bloggers by Innovation Excellence. Check some of my articles here.

– I’m a world traveler: I’ve explored business & culture in more than 30 countries. In 2012/2013 I took my wanderlust to a new degree and embarked with by lovely husband, Rafael, in a one-year round the world tour. It was AMAZING!
