Guilherme Paulus Advice To Entrepreneurs

Whenever the Top seller event is held attendees can always count on it to inspire them. During the last event, Guilherme Paulus graced the event as one of the key speakers.

He was here to speak about entrepreneurship and having been named Entrepreneur of the Year a number of times he seemed like a perfect fit. He has over the years become synonymous with tourism-related investments. Those that are close to him will always admit to his passion for entrepreneurship.

As he rose to speak, you could feel the anticipation in the air. Everyone was waiting to hear about his journey to the top and the number of obstacles he has had to overcome to be where he is today. Today he is a billionaire, but it has not always been like this. He began working as an intern at 17 and started his company at 24. As Guilherme Paulus spoke one thing became clear he values innovation. The company sells travel packages. As he admits, you cannot keep selling the same thing to people all the time as it will become monotonous and they will take their business elsewhere.

CVC sells dreams that are well packaged and executed. This has seen the company grow into the biggest tour operator in Brazil. The company brought its first cruise ship into the country, but today they are ship owners. One of the other areas where they lead as a company is in the digital space. The hotel investor believed from quite early that the internet would be one of the most important elements of business and this has turned out to be true. The company has a good presence online, where clients can access virtually all services offered by CVC.

The growth of CVC has been impressive given the numbers he read out during the event. The country is now serving more than 3.9 million clients every year. They are located in 456 cities with more than 9000 travel agents in every state in Brazil.

Guilherme Paulus had some advice for those in attendance encouraging them to be determined, optimistic and love what they do.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Finds Success But Becomes Incarnation Of Globalist Ethos Along The Way

Luiz Carlos Trabuco has had an inspiring career. Starting from the lowest rungs of the corporate ladder, he is one of the few people who was able to rise all the way to the top, not just of his firm but of the entire global finance industry. This story may inspire those who would like to believe that it is still possible for wide swathes of the population to achieve wild success through nothing but their wits and strong work ethic. But upon closer inspection, we see some very unique contours emerge from the Trabuco story. We even see Trabuco himself becoming an agent of the brand of globalism that would make a repeat of his own rise very unlikely today.

From Mail Room To Board Room

Few people in the modern business world can claim to have risen as fast and as high as Luiz Carlos Trabuco. Born in 1952, in Marilia, Sao Paulo, Trabuco was raised in a lower-middle-class household, in a family that was comfortable but by no means well off. After graduating high school in 1969, Trabuco needed to find his first job. He had dreams of attending college and getting an advanced degree someday. But he lacked the funds to put himself through college. Like many students of his generation, he would need to work his way through his studies.

He applied to and was hired at what was, at that time, still a two-branch, small-town bank. Bradesco had been founded 25 years earlier, in the same town of Marilia, where Trabuco was born. Trabuco surprised his superiors with his strong work ethic, administrative talent and seemingly limitless capacity to learn new jobs and skills. By the end of his first year with the bank, he was already a branch manager.

Over the course of the ’70s, Trabuco continues rising through the corporate hierarchy. During this time, he was also able to realize his goal of putting himself through college. By the end of the 1970s, Trabuco had a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in social psychology. He had, by now, amassed an impressive resume, working in nearly every business line that the bank offered. In 1984, he was handed his first executive role.

As head of the corporation’s marketing department, Trabuco was able to prove his executive acumen and significantly improve the way in which the bank marketed itself to the public. His superiors were impressed, and by 1992, he was again tapped for a promotion.

This time, he was given the reins of the firm’s struggling financial planning division. It was here that the extent to which Trabuco had internalized the globalist ethos first became apparent. By this time, Trabuco was an expert in international finance and had long been familiar with the banking models used by some of the most prestigious U.S. banks. He immediately moved to scrap Bradesco’s old, one-size-fits-all banking model and aggressively started marketing to high-net-worth clients.

Some say that, during this period, the quality of banking for the average customer suffered. What is not in doubt is that the efforts to recruit rich clients, through the use of such things as 24/7 personal bankers, separate, luxury facilities and lavish rewards, turned out to be a smashing success. By 2003, the financial planning division had increased revenues by more than ten times. Trabuco was now regarded as a virtual miracle worker.

He would go on to begin recruiting all managerial talent from outside the bank and begin requiring even low-level employees to have college degrees. While there is no doubt these measures have been a huge success for the bank, there is supreme irony in the recognition that, if he were to apply today as an unqualified 18 year old, Trabuco himself would likely not even get an interview.
