Key factor for success
“Since the first contact, acted with professionalism and had a very empathic approach. All the initial discussion and until the final proposal they were fair and showed capacity to innovate and provide the expected services at the quality level the Aga Khan Foundation was demanding. Andreia performed at high level leading in all the contacts with a large range of suppliers, acting on behalf and advocate for the client; she ensured us a smooth way to the event and an effective and high-quality support along the Schools2030 Global Forum, during 3 full days and additional social program, ensuring that AKF had in place also all the required environment sustainability policies. Together with Pedro, Andreia and Olavo were an excellent event planner; their work was a key factor for the success of the Global Forum including acknowledge by all the participants.”
