Beatriz Branco


From Brazil to Portugal, I feel like I am a beautiful mix of both cultures - starting with a creative mindset, aligned with a “let’s get things done” attitude.
I believe that education is a powerful tool of empowerment and transformation. And that “the one size fits all” isn’t going to be a general approach for long. My passion for education and learning experience design led me to become a NFL trainer! Working with young people taught me to dream and how to deal with tough audiences ;)

Beatriz Branco has 3 references for past work as a trainer.
