I am often asked to be a motivational speaker at business events. My story of moving from Poland to the UK and successfully building businesses that work at an international level has proven to be inspiring for business audiences.



Cultural awareness SPEAKING

I have overcome many challenges that are often presented to women in business as well as having to adapt to a different culture and country.

  • Since 2009, I have been actively promoting Poland, my native country and I have been delivering a series of ‘Love Poland - Polish Language and Culture’ training events across the UK.
  • I was the winner of the Hardy & Collins Award for Polish Cultural Training in 2012.
  • Young Business Person of the Year, Lincolnshire Media Award in 2013.
  • Highly commended at the East Midlands Director of the Year’ Award by the IoD in 2015.
  • Jet Set Speaker, Professional Speakers Academy Certificate in 2016
  • Since 2016 regular speaker for local Colleges, Schools and local Chambers of Commerce events.
  • Nominated for the 2017 Outstanding Woman in Public Services, East Midlands Women’s Award
  • In 2017 I was asked to speak at a Women in Business event for NatWest Bank.

Cultural Awareness presentations



The Chambers of Commerce work with many partners at an international level. We are often asked to speak at their events so we can share our knowledge of working across international borders. We tailor our presentations for the audience, so they get the most benefit from our expertise and knowledge.
When speaking at Sales and Marketing events, we cover what companies need to consider to trade abroad successfully. The impact of their branding, websites, the way they convey their message is important when trying market to different nationalities. Getting even the smallest detail wrong can reduce their chances of success.
When we speak at events with HR professionals, we share ideas of how to deal with multi-cultural teams. Consideration has to be given to everything from body language through to gestures which may alienate employees. We will also cover aspects such as getting across the message about the company values, operational aspects and H&S rules and regulations.
