Think Latin America
Organized by Ccaps, Think Latin America landed in Europe in 2013. Attendees met over a two-day event to sit back, listen, learn, brainstorm, and include that extra spice into their business processes. The program, which took the world on a tour to Latin America, indulged attendees into interactive presentations and exciting panel discussions with dignataries from the Brazilian and Mexico Embassies, the OECD and a number of startups and well established companies. Entrepreneurs, executives and knowledge-seekers gained all they needed to enter, sustain, grow, and capture the Latin American market.
Ask Us What We Believe
In 2010, Ccaps team members were invited to attend a professional photo shoot. They had to choose an object that represented them or something they liked. With the help of professional make-up artists, fashion stylists and renowned Brazilian photographer Camilla Maia, we gave them the tools to shine and be featured on the company’s website. Because we believe in our talents!
Prejudice: Zero Tolerance
The world we live in today is universal by nature. We are a reflection of this universalization: a combination of different cultures, languages, races, nationalities, creeds and beliefs to form a single yet diverse entity, where everyone is respected and valued for who they are, not what they represent. Viva la vida!
GALA Film Fest
In 2011, Ccaps and IMTT Managing Directors, Fabiano Cid and Maria Cecilia Maldonado, were invited to be the MCs of the first GALA Film Festival, in Cascais, Portugal. Dressed up for a “gala” event, they cracked jokes and amused the audience who voted on the best videos submitted by GALA members.
