Meet Ana
VP Social Impact @ TWGStrategy

Ana Figueiredo is a marketeer and an anthropologist. Although a Portuguese native, she has lived and worked in Luxembourg, London, Barcelona and Norway, and traveled around Europe, North Africa and Central America. She has undergraduate degrees in both Organizational Communication and Anthropology, a master’s degree in Art Studies, and was a PhD student in Anthropology. Ana is fluent in four languages, including Portuguese, English, French and Spanish, and has basic knowledge of 5 other languages. 

Ana Figueiredo has been actively involved with non-profit organizations since adolescence, but since 2010, has focused primarily on helping them grow through communication and organizational strategies. More specifically, she has worked in marketing, project design and management, business development and strategic planning. Working for non-profits in several countries provided invaluable knowledge of the internal issues affecting most organizations and the best practices on how to overcome them.  

Because of her combined non-profit practical experience and theoretical knowledge within the market and social sciences, with a special focus on issues affecting women, she became the non-profit strategy consultancy expert and the VP of Social Impact at TWGStrategy. 

Ana is a nature lover, a traveler, and a dancer. She’s addicted to challenges and to learning new things every day. She’s fascinated by what makes us human and by socio-cultural differences (and similarities). She currently lives with her partner and daughter in a village near the Portuguese coast. 

Our team is passionate about what we do and we approach each project with the utmost respect for our clients and their mission.

One of our most noteworthy strengths is providing personal attention without compromising professional performance.

Our biggest differentiator is our level of organization and unique methodology developed through years of experience and practical application with our own funding projects and those of our clients.

We work along side you, adopting your passions as our own, to ensure that you have every resource available to maximize your social impact.

Besides offering a vast array of services, our approach is also customized to serve your best interests. Depending on your needs, we can serve as your trusted advisor, experienced educator, or a do-it-for-you kind of approach.

Your Success is Our Success.
