Embassy of Portugal in China
Executive Assistant to Ambassador
September 2016 — Present
My role is to provide to the Ambassador high-level support, trusted with high-end and complex duties.
I am a high-performing professional with a suite of strong technical skills, who understands the business and knows the Ambassador's goals, objectives and vision. This way, in order for the Ambassador to be effective, I must take over the functions that are not a good use of his time, keeping him isolated from non-essentials and focused on his job.
I have the ability to anticipate. The ability to look ahead and prevent problems or challenges as well making certain the Ambassador is fully briefed and prepared for a meeting, event or a trip. A good communication with him enables me to take control of routine matters and ultimately be confident to make decisions as well.
Considered to be resourceful, having good instincts and being innovative, I try everyday to make my job better, knowing where to go for solutions, understanding how to get the job done and constantly looking for ways to improve.
