Turn any direction and point a finger in any Brazilian city and you are almost certainly pointing to some company wholly owned by one family. So it is that there is no shortage of business advice in Brazil; for a nominal fee, that is. Most citizens seem to have developed their own strategies in business. But, mostly they boil down to the age old adage: ‘if you will scratch my back, I will scratch yours.’ So, the average business advice most people are equipped to offer is, well, average.

Not the least of his vast knowledge is a thorough understanding of the dizzying array of sub-cultures Brazil encompasses. With the use of his many talents and amazing depth of knowledge, Mr. Cornelsen has developed great working relationships with the elite and connected. He calls it being connected with the natives.

Mr. Cornelsen does not just catch fish for people. He works to educate his clients to learn to fish effectively for themselves.
