I manage regional development projects

After 10 years of working as a journalist and a manager of media and marketing projects, at the end of 2006 I took on a function in the Lublin City Office. First, I was elected the City Secretary, then in 2011 I was appointed to the position of the Head of the Department obtaining the European funds for Lublin and managing projects in the area assigned by the Mayor of the City.

In 2012 I co-created the concept and began coordination of the Centre for Eastern European Competences program, the flagship project of which is the Eastern Europe Initiatives Congress www.kongres.lublin.eu.

I am a certified project manager under the PRINCE2 methodology and a certified program manager under the MSP methodology.

I create and support business

In 2003 I co-founded ENZO company (www.enzo.pl) which is still in operation today. Since 2012 I have been running my own business under the brand of Most Biznesu – Business Bridge (www.most-biznesu.eu) which caters for the needs of small and large enterprises, start-up companies, universities and NGOs with respect to supporting development processes, internationalization of operations, international trade, project and program management, and implementation of administrative and legal procedures. The common denominator of my activities is usually the cross-border cooperation between the European Union and the Eastern Partnership countries, particularly within the framework of the association agreement and the free trade agreement with Ukraine.

I am a licensed employment agent and my showpiece project is the recruitment of Ukrainian nurses for Polish hospitals - www.medsestra.pl.

I am a member of the “Lewiatan” Union of Private Employers of the Lublin Region.

I develop Central and Eastern Europe

In 1997-2005 I was one of the leaders of the Student Self-Government and the Scientific Association of Economists at the Faculty of Economics of Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin (MCSU), and in 2000-2002 I represented students in the Academic Senate of MCSU (www.umcs.pl).

In 1997-2006 I was a member of the Council and the Board of Dziesiąta District in Lublin.

Currently, I am an expert and a coach of several Polish and Ukrainian NGOs, public institutions and universities which use my knowledge of strategic management, project management, obtaining grants, intersectoral cooperation, and the processes of citizens’ participation in taking key decisions by municipal and rural authorities.
