Passion combined with competence, 23 years of working in the training field, and the experience as the Volunteer Training Coordinator for UEFA EURO 2012 are the guarantee of high quality of my performance.

Work experience

I was nominated as the Expert Trainer of the Pool of Trainers and Facilitators of Service Civil International (the Pool encompassing 42 countries) for the term between 2013 and 2016, and on the national level, I am a member of the Polish Association of NGO Trainers (STOP). I am one of the few (around 30) trainers in Poland to pass their certification procedures, including supervision of my training courses, and to receive the STOP Training Quality Certificate (2nd level).
Besides, my role as the International President of Service Civil International (1.2015-12.2020) allowed me to practise the themes and skills I train about, including intercultural learning, project and organisation management, leadership, and effective teamwork.

Between 2011-2012 I worked for UEFA as the Volunteer Training Coordinator, being responsible for planning, coordination and effective implementation of the training and motivational programmes for 3,000 volunteers who worked for the UEFA EURO 2012 Football Championship in Poland. This was an incredible opportunity to practice many of my trainers’ skills and I am proud of the results of my performance.

In mid-2012 I returned to the job of a freelance trainer and counted up to over 100 organisations and institutions I have worked for in the last 20+ years, many of them as prestigious as UNHCR, the Polish Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and national and regional teacher-training centres. I have worked with numerous target groups, starting from 6-year-olds and finishing with heads of pedagogical universities.
I run my own training company, Pracownia Interakcji, working both offline and online and running training courses in English, Polish, and Russian.

In addition, in my life, I have gained a lot of other practical experience: as a project coordinator, team coordinator, international workcamps organiser, and humanitarian worker.
