Hi, I’m Ricardo Castelhano.

All my professional path is connected with software development and teaching.

I started advocating for Agile and eXtreme Programming practices a long time ago.

In 2008, I was introduced to the Servant Leadership philosophy by a CTO I had. He was the first genuine leader I saw in action daily.

I have considered myself a student of this philosophy since then.

Currently I’m working as Senior Engineer Manager in the Global Streaming Platform at Sky in Portugal. I’m responsible for the leadership, mentorship, engineering excellence and growth of several frontend development teams for Big Screen devices. We are building Peacock and SkyShowtime streaming services.

As a seasoned keynote speaker, I have experience in national and international events organised by companies such as Microsoft and Adobe. I never miss an opportunity to jump on stage and share some love.

I have been working to learn more about myself and how stress and anxiety impact me personally and professionally.

I have Don Miguel Ruiz’ four agreements as my North star:
– Be Impeccable With Your Word;
– Don’t Take Anything Personally;
– Don’t Make Assumptions;
– Always Do Your Best.

Welcome to this space, where I will share my leadership insights and everything I know about stress and anxiety management. Feel free to contact me if I can be of service.
