Happiness Orchestrator

Born in Lisbon, in the neighbourhood of Alvalade, Teresa has, since long ago, surrendered to the charm of the Invicta [the nickname for the City of Porto, meaning the Undefeated City].

She holds a degree in Translation Sciences and Compared Culture from the Higher Institute of Languages and Administration of Lisbon. Teresa’s professional career is strongly linked to the banking sector. She has worked for Human Resources, with responsibilities in the fields of recruitment and career management – which led her to take a postgraduate course in Organizational Behaviour and Management at the Lusíada University -, and in the commercial field, where she created and developed a vast network of contacts with some of the largest national institutions. She has also held responsibilities in public relations, and in organization of events for large companies.

Joyful, creative, and always optimistic, Teresa sees Gbliss as a company that promotes the joy and well-being of its customers. She was one of the founding members of Gbliss in 2012.

Tourism Wizard

Born in Cedofeita, Joana holds a graduate degree in Hotel Management and Practices, by the Hotel and Tourism School of Porto, and a bachelor’s degree in Hotel Management and Administration, by the Higher School of Hospitality and Tourism of Estoril. Subsequent trainings in translation, protocol, marketing, communication, and event management, have complemented her academic skills.

Professionally, she has taken up several key responsibilities in the hospitality industry, which allowed her to accumulate a valuable knowledge of the business, in areas ranging from reception services to management, through training, quality, and human resources. She also had the opportunity to lead new projects and to open new hotel units.

Ambitious and creative, but also realistic and calm – a set of personality traits that, together with her professional experience, make of Joana a valuable asset for Gbliss, of which she was one of the founding members in 2012.

Chief Storyteller

Born in Miragaia, Manuel holds a graduate degree in Historical Sciences from the Portucalense University, and a Master’s degree in Tourism from the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Porto.

He has a quite diversified professional background, having worked in the fields of management, quality, marketing, and communication, in companies and institutions linked to education, newspaper and magazine distribution, food products, organization of trade-fairs and conferences, book marketing, tourism, among others.

He is the author of the ‘Porto Desaparecido’ [Vanished Porto] page, and of the book ‘Porto d’Honra’ [Porto of Honour]. Trainer and lecturer, Manuel collaborates with several newspapers and magazines, having been awarded the Municipal Medal of Merit by the City of Porto.

Enthusiastic about History and Heritage, Manuel is a true storyteller, especially those related to Porto – a city that he knows as few others. He has a markedly gregarious personality, and has a keen sense of humour. Manuel joined Gbliss in 2018.
