This is where Mauro Arruda & team come in.

As a senior copywriter, chief creative officer and managing director, Mauro has led local, regional and global communication projects for major health & wellness brands.

His creativity recognitions include CLIO Health, Cannes Lions Health, London International Advertising Awards, Epica and The One Show in areas like mobile, digital, music and audio.
