PROFESSIONAL PROFILE NATIONALITY/RESIDENCY

Ricardo Simoes Silva is an energetic, self-motivated and creative

Marketing and Communications Manager, providing support in

sponsorship management, production and on field management.

By age 27 and with a deep passion for getting things done, Ricardo

had planned and organised two major music festivals in Portugal

featuring bands such as Metallica, Pearl Jam and Neil Young, whilst

developing, implementing and marketing several other shows including

Katy Perry, AC/DC and Cirque du Soleil.

Building on his existing skill set including closing large sponsorship

deals, developing and implementing marketing strategies, promotional

campaigns, sponsorship management and client account management,

in addition to negotiation and budget preparation, Ricardo has broadened

his skill set since completing his MBA studies at The University of

Queensland.

With a commitment to improving his management knowledge, Ricardo

undertook full time study for one year, and joined the MBA’s leadership

enhancement program, where he could learn more about management

and managing people.

“I have leadership experience through event managing concerts where

my team attracted up to 78,000 Madonna fans in Portugal. You have

3,000 plus people working for you at the venues when festivals are

held,” he said.

Fluent in Portuguese, English, French and Spanish, Ricardo would like

to hone his skills in event management or start his own business in

environmental sustainability and new technologies.
