Discover Portugal
Beyond Portugal’s coastline of sandy beaches and jagged cliffs lies a diverse land steeped in over 800 years of rich history. Here, past and present are inextricably intertwined, and life’s simple pleasures reflect the abundant heritage.
A place of sun and sea, history and cosmopolitanism, the truly relaxed and carefree spirit of Portugal’s inhabitants is balanced by its robust cultural diversity. Geographically, Portugal is defined by its distinctive Atlantic flavour, which encompasses nature, beaches, gastronomy and entertainment.
In this land filled with sunlight, the past reinforces the sense of the present. Here, medieval castles stand alongside modern architecture; Roman, Gothic and Manueline monuments punctuate a landscape of beaches with deep blue seas and rolling green plains.  The never ending contrasts: Historic villages and luxury resorts, the cuisine of great modern chefs and simple culinary traditions, contemporary art museums and prehistoric rock drawings, world class golf courses and busy vibrant avenues; all reflect the welcoming juxtaposition of Portugal.
Here, people are creative, open and welcoming, and wish to share with you the best of everything they have and know. Here, life is a sensory celebration.

Discover the Philippines
The Philippines is the third largest English speaking country in the world. It has a rich history combining Asian, European, and American influences. The West discovered the Philippines when Ferdinand Magellan, the Portuguese explorer who sailed for Spain, landed in Cebu in 1521. However, colonization didn't actually begin until 1565, when Miguel Lopez de Legazpi established a Spanish base in the town of Manila. Prior to Spanish colonization in 1565, the Filipinos had a rich culture and were trading with the Chinese and the Japanese. Spain's colonization brought about the construction of Intramuros in 1571, a "Walled City" comprised of European buildings and churches, replicated in different parts of the archipelago. In 1898, after 350 years and 300 rebellions, the Filipinos, with leaders like Jose Rizal and Emilio Aguinaldo, succeeded in winning their independence.
Philippines are one of the top fish, fresh and dried fruit and coconut producing countries in the world.

We want to change the world. Regardless of success, we want to continue to humbly question (every one of our colleagues) our business model, our products, processes and services. We have dreams to achieve. We want to do more and better, while knowing that there are limits.

We set ourselves ambitious and difficult goals because we know that only with persistent efforts to achieve them can we find new ways forward. We take risks, we allow room for mistakes and learn from them. We believe that ideas should come from everyone, at any time and in any place. Routine is our enemy. We try to create an organisational climate and conditions that facilitate a creative approach to challenges, transforming them into opportunities. We believe that the most unusual or radical ideas should be analysed with the same (or greater) care and respect as those that seem safer and more solid. We should rely on our colleagues but also our business partners, suppliers, community, associations and companies with different experiences.
