Horácio Lopes

Project Manager, Training Manager, Trainer, and University Lecturer. Founder of newDATAmagazine®

In his first work experience as a shelf stocker in a family supermarket, he immediately felt an enormous connection to management and everything that meant planning, organisation, procedures, criteria, and logic.

While still studying for his degree, in 1992, he took the initiative to set up his first company dedicated to importing and distributing sports materials and selling sportswear, footwear, and accessories to the public. In 1997 he assumed the position of financial director of an international trading company, and in 1999 he became the general manager of a fitness centre.

Between 2002 and 2012, he performed as a project manager in the areas of Management, Internet, Marketing, Communication, Design, and Multimedia, with implementation in clients from the most diverse industries in B2B and B2C, which allowed him to come into contact with very different realities and develop an excellent problem-solving ability, using creativity and adaptability, as a leader and also as a team member.

He has been acting since 2012 as a management consultant, helping companies to optimise and restructure departments and functional areas, mainly in the processes of General Management, Technology, Strategy, Commercial, Marketing, and Product/Service Delivery.

In parallel with his business occupation, he has taken on various positions in the associative sector, related to management, marketing, events, and projects over the years. In these areas, he has also worked as a trainer since 1994, and from 2013, as a pedagogical coordinator. Today he works as a trainer, pedagogical coordinator, and university professor.

His immense passion for continuous learning motivated him to seek more knowledge and to attend multiple training courses at different levels, accumulating today, in addition to more than a dozen professional training courses and certifications, a degree, two master’s degrees, an executive master’s degree, and a postgraduate degree. He is currently studying for a doctorate in Management.

His desire to give back to the community and his sharing mentality led him to found newDATAmagazine®, a knowledge-oriented magazine proudly belonging to the Cultural and Creative Economy, in which he is now editor and where he coordinates the monthly production of each issue (partnership management, planning, writing, proofreading, editing, publishing and communication, coordination of the magazine’s design and layout, IT production, online publishing, website, and communication).

“Show, don’t tell!”, “Walk the talk!”, “Get things done!” and “Sharing is learning!” are the four principles that guide his professional performance.
