Brazilian executive shares how lifelong learning and IMD are instruments for success
October 17, 2012
Mr. Paulo Penido Pinto Marques, CFO Roundtable Guest Speaker and Chairman of the Board of Usiminas, has participated in over 30 executive education programs in his 37-year career. This commitment to lifelong learning has propelled his professional development by increasing his knowledge at each stage, from skill-specific training early on to management and leadership as he acquired more responsibility.
"We are always in a hurry; we have goals to achieve and specific tasks to complete," he explained in a video interview. "Executive education allows you to stop and think about the skills you need to improve and to develop."
With his vast educational experience, Mr. Marques has special affinity for the programs that he has attended at IMD:
"I would rank my experience at IMD as among the best, if not the best, that I have experienced. If I compare to other places I have been, I would say that IMD is the most global and therefore fits with the current reality of the globalized world," he explained.
