João Sevilhano

Strategy & Innovation

He discovered his passion and curiosity for words, early on in his life, having dedicated some time of his childhood reading the Luso-Brazilian Encyclopedia. For 15 years he was a semi-professional athlete. He graduated in Applied Psychology and, since then, maintains a private practice (keeping close attention to psychoanalysis). For one and a half years he lived in the people department of a big Portuguese company. Afterward, he changed so that he could focus on creating learning experiences at EEC (Escola Europeia de Coaching) as Pedagogical Director and, later, Managing Partner.

Angela

Ângela Marçal

Culture & Business

She’s crazy for a good conversation, even better if it happens around a table! She prefers to listen than to talk; likes best to imagine rather than to draw; fancies white over yellow. When she was little she wanted to be a social worker and a mayor of the city, but none of those happened. She came from the province of Beira Baixa and then moved to Lisbon to study Management and Marketing. She was a sales director, human resources director, consultant, teams leader and also the managing partner for some human resources consulting companies. At EEC (Escola Europeia de Coaching) she was responsible for business development where she found a different way of talking, through coaching. She’s a partner of WB, responsible for the areas of Culture and Business.

Sónia Morgado

Customer & Business

She loves making people laugh and soon realized that joy is a serious business.
She compares life to a test tube and, for that reason, she never worried about what she was going to do when she grew up. She doesn’t have the patience or the skill for craft work, prefers thinking, chatting and dancing.
She started her studies in Hotel Management but changed her path towards Psychology. I her early adulthood she experimented many different areas, working as a social worker for population at risk, as a dance teacher, in TV production, until she finally started working in HR consulting. She finally realized her great passion and respect for other people’s emotions and feelings, as well as a great curiosity for understanding what drives them.
In her experience in the HR field, she worked as a manager for two multinational companies, where she managed teams and developed strategic solutions, as an advisor and facilitator, in areas such as organisational culture, leadership, communication and people development.
At WB she’s responsible for the areas of Customer & Business.
