Our Founder

Viviane Vicente is passionate about creating an environment of respect, logic and beauty, and instilling in others a behavior that makes business interactions more meaningful and pleasant.

Her belief is that such behavior should occur naturally, without transpiring a feeling of “following rules” with no real purpose, and that acting in that way mitigates the pressure and stress of professional dealings.

After a successful career in the legal, public and private security fields, Viviane Vicente founded Rispetto Consulting, an advisory firm designed to help individuals and organizations navigate the globalized world and enhance their leadership potential. Her expertise, acquired over the span of more than 20 years in the international arena, allow her to pursue her true passion: helping clients create a world in which professional relationships are not only desirable and profitable, but respectful and kind.

Viviane holds a Law degree and an MBA from Brazilian universities; an LL.M. (Master of Laws) degree from The George Washington University Law School, and Certificate degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from Georgetown University. She is certified by the Protocol School of Washington® as an Intercultural Etiquette and Protocol Trainer; holds an advanced certification in Cultural Intelligence from the Cultural Intelligence Center; and is also certified in Cultural Competency by Unite for Sight. In addition to her native Portuguese, Viviane speaks English, Italian and Spanish.
