Oil & Gas Oil & Gas


The Oil and Gas industry is going through uncertainty which affects the Human Resources Management strategy in related organizations. Planning ahead is indeed a challenge in line with the economical and regional turmoil.
The opportunity for jobs to be created in the Oil and Gas industry is currently raised, due to the shortage of technical and engineering professionals.
In reality, we need more young people to study Oil and Gas and get a specialization. Acquiring the right experts, training and retaining a talented workforce are very critical, especially in such a competitive market.

Cultural Transformation Tools® or CTT

View herein my CTT Practitioner Diploma

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything” – George Bernard Shaw

Engaged and inspired by culture throughout my experience, I became a CTT Practitioner in 2015, accredited to interpret and use the CTT Models and Tools. As a Member of the global CTT Community network, I share experiences and discuss case studies with my fellow Change and Transformational Agents around the world.
This is a great opportunity for you to partner with a Certified Consultant who will guide you throughout your Cultural Transformation journey.


Created by Richard Barrett, an internationally recognized Author, Consultant and keynote Speaker on Corporate Culture and Values-Based Leadership, the Cultural Transformation Tools® (CTT) have been used to map the values of thousands of organizations and leaders in over 90 countries in their transformational journeys.
Measurement matters and what gets measured gets managed and done. The Cultural Transformation Tools® are powerful metrics that enable Leaders to actively measure and manage the culture of their teams, leaders and the Organization as a whole. This is one of the most detailed and comprehensive cultural diagnostics and values assessment instruments available.  


Each person is driven consciously or unconsciously by its own set of values, thus, our decisions and emotional drivers reflect our values. “Individuals express their values through their personal behaviours; organizations express their values through their cultural behaviours” – Richard Barrett, Pleuntje van Meer.


The reason is simple: by building a high-performance culture, “you will increase profits, attract and keep talented people, build brand loyalty and a resilient, sustainable company”.
Once you chose your values as an Organization, you embed these in every behaviour, policy, procedure, system and goals.  “The culture of an organization defines who you are and what you stand for. Vibrant cultures are values-driven, mission-focused and vision-guided”.


Here is the critical equation:

  • Values and behaviours drive culture.
  • Culture drives employee fulfilment.
  • Employee fulfilment drives mission.
  • The Mission drives customer satisfaction.

Therefore and based on values mapping of over 2000 institutions in more than 60 countries, “Values-driven organizations are the most successful organizations on the planet” – Richard Barrett, Pleuntje van Meer.


With my CTT accreditation and knowledge, I can provide and interpret the CTT Tools and Models through:

1) Assessments
2) Workshops
3) Cultural Meetings and Brainstorming

Contact me via email for more information.


“If you get the culture right, most of the other stuff will just take care of itself” – Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com

Taking culture seriously has a tremendous impact on your Organization’s bottom line!


  • The creation of a core and shared set of values and one identity;

Testimonial related to my speech: “Growth & Success: a 3-stage Strategy

“Fabulous presenter. Very interesting speech with relevant information about the topic. I would certainly attend future Maravilhosa events.”


HR & Quality Manager

Fameline Holding Group Ltd

Testimonial related to the workshop: "Understanding Personalities in Conflict"

"Working with people in the workplace (and not only) and as much as one will try to avoid it, will occasionally lead to a situation of conflict. Understanding personalities in conflict, starting with ones self, will greatly assist in salvaging as much of any relationship as possible.  We had the opportunity to study an Enneagram, explore our individual Enneagram style and more significantly try to explore the style of other individuals with whom we felt we were in conflict in an effort to understand distinct habits of thinking, feeling and behaving. Muriel and  Karolina masterfully assisted in unfolding our inner wisdom and tapping into our individual potential as well as those around us. A very interactive workshop! I would gladly revisit."


Deputy General Manager

Tamoil Overseas Limited

Testimonial related to the workshop: "Managing the Employment Relationship"

"In the absence of an in-house HR Department and as Deputy General Manager, a lot of times I am confronted with employment relationship issues.  It is important to invest time to understand such issues and to try to find an amicable solution in the best interest of all concerned. The workshop has educated me with regards to latest updates on legal (both local and EU) aspects and obligations. It also provided helpful hints and ideas on how to upgrade manuals of procedure etc. Both Workshop Leaders, Muriel Matta (on the HR side) and Despo Andreou (on the Legal side) provided a vast amount of very useful information on the matter which they helped to embed using excellent audience-engaging tools and challenging group exercises. A day well spent indeed!
