About Cinthia Silva

Cinthia Silva help stakeholders in the trade surveillance space analyze and implement compliance strategies to monitor their trade flows. I’m dedicated to understanding the challenges of trade surveillance and advise leaders on how to leverage data-driven insights to improve their compliance programs.

I’m an avid traveler, long-term yoga practitioner and love to experience other cultures. This has led to opportunities to live and work in the UK, France and across Latam and has given me a unique perspective of business culture across multiple regions.

10. Your favourite book?

I have a lot of favourite books but I’m currently re-reading “How Women Rise” and I would recommend this to all women in business. Their list of the 16 ways women self-sabotage and their suggestions on how to counteract these behaviors is life-changing. Pick this book up now if you want to learn how to get out of your own way as you grow your career!

I’m a big fan of travel and fitness so I often combine the two by visiting gorgeous beaches and going snorkelling, swimming, running, or biking in sunny locales.

12. Anything else you would like to add?

Customer Success will continue to evolve so CS pros should maintain a growth mindset and roll with it.
