Finding meaning in a project, whatever the culture is.
Sheila was born and bred in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique. In 2002 she moved to Rio de Janeiro to pursue her studies, where she graduated with an Economics degree. Her career spans over a decade in some of the largest multinationals, including Coca-Cola and Barclays. Sheila thrived under the organisational culture of the bank, which took her on a year-long internship in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The varied organisations structure which incorporates different cultures and backgrounds, as well as the flat structure allowed her to thrive, with easy access to management and close knit ties between team members. Perhaps that is why she lists Australia as a dream destination for work and a bit of play.
Taking her MBA has been life altering, opening Sheila up to a world of other possibilities. She now sees an opportunity to leverage the great communication and negotiation skills she has acquired to evolve the business environment back home in Mozambique.
For Sheila, finding meaning in a project is what drives her and she applies this principle to both, her work and her passion – travelling.
