Bio:

EN. Project management has been her passion for over 10 years. She gained experience in international organizations, among others taking part in creating project offices in the medical and IT industries. As a Team Manager at brightONE company she is responsible for the team of project managers and PMO. After hours she develops her passion as the Managing Director of the local PMI branch and a lecturer at postgraduate and MBA studies in the field of project management. In her spare time she reads books, supports Liverpool FC and uses every opportunity to travel.

What I enjoy most about being a project manager is:

meeting new people, changes which makes my life more interesting and possibility to develop all the time. I’ve run lots of projects and each of them gave me new knowledge and abilities. Project management is not a job, is the way of living.

The three most important skills I use to successfully deliver projects are:

communication, planning, coaching

I build and nurture my professional network by:

PMI network (organizing events, conferences, attending and speaking during conferences), volunteering, attending meetups, teaching at the University, running workhops, doing projects together with other PMs

At the start of my career, the one thing I wish I had known is:

It’s normal to move move from Microsoft Project Management to excel (do not concentrate on tool but on project)

Women who have inspired me so far in my career journey are:

My mum, my older sister, my ex-boss, Sheryl Sandberg

The most valuable advice I have ever been given is:

Create your own job

My advice for women on finding success as a project manager is:

Talk with team (as friends and coworkers, not as resources), listen to their advices (they often have more knowledge in some areas), develop yourself in this area and the most important – believe in yourself!
