When Maurício Mendonça Godoy had his interview with Ideamensch on the 5th of August in 2019 he was very forthcoming with his business strategies and ideas.
At the time that Maurício Mendonça Godoy had been questioned on how he was able to come up with the idea for his Estaleiros do Brasil business. The reason that he gave for this was simply the new need for FPSO platforms. Of course, the need for these platforms is what gave him the idea to build his very own shipyard. The reason behind the new need for the platforms had everything to do with the new found pre-salt coming from the coast of Brazil. When the decision had been made to create the shipyard, at some point in 2011, the company had predicted that they would be building around 3 or 4 FPSOs every year. Of course, that was what made the idea so great. With that much demand the company knew that there would be billions of dollars coming in for them.
At the time that Godoy was questioned about the day-to-day stuff that he did, he was very invested in his answer. To this he told the reporter that his normal time for arriving at the office is prior to 7:30 am. After arriving at his office Maurício Mendonça Godoy has to take a look at his list of things to do. When looking at it he decides which things are more important and gets to them first. While going about his normal day he makes sure to stop and talk with his team, and together they talk about the plans of action, strategies, and any guidelines. He is also in the habit of going around and hearing any of the ideas that pop up that will help his company succeed. He puts a lot of time into making sure that all of the employees have been able to share their ideas with him and others on staff that are higher up. Maurício Mendonça Godoy thinks that those who overlook the smaller individuals of a company are taking the risk of loosing out on making big business moves that could bring the company a lot of money.
