São Paulo, Brazil Linkedin "I worked with Ricardo Vargas during last HP Services Project Managers Workshop, held in São Paulo, Brazil, on Nov/06. As a company, we were looking for a senior market professional, that could support us with the main goal of improve our PM´s skills and capabilities. HP chose Ricardo as the right professional for this mission. During the workshop, Ricardo presented customized and market updated content, with high quality materials and totally aligned with what was required by us. He covered very important topics related with management of big and complex projects, like leadership and its interfaces with project team and customers; motivational management – dealing with power aspects; management of change, conflict, stress and crisis management; project negotiation techniques – using support tools like MBTI and SDI; and also case study panels, where PMs had the opportunity to share with the team their own delivery experiences. His presentation was superlative and outstanding. He has attention to details, answering all the questions raised by participants during the event, that by the way, had very good satisfaction results. I recommend Ricardo´s consultative services for companies that want good return on their investment and long term partnership."

Cemig – Belo Horizonte, Brazil "Our partnership with Ricardo Vargas was not about business. It was a common well-done challenge in which we had the opportunity to join our experience with his charismatic leadership. The tangible and immediate results were three months less in the schedule of Baguari HPP implementation and a new book collecting our knowledge on Hydro Power Plant developing. But the most important result can be in the future. Behind this gentle man there is one of the most expert on project management in the world and it’s comforting to know that we can count on him again."
