Areas of Expertise
An idea worth spreading
Making it is as easy to make contact with and meet TED and TEDx fans when we travel as it is to meet Couchsurfers. See the TED and TEDx Fans Travel and Meetup club in my links on this page
I'm passionate about
making things happen, TED, sharing ideas and getting things up and running.
Talk to me about
the best thing that happened in your week.
People don't know I'm good at
unlocking other people's entrepreneurial spirit, taking risks, not asking for permission, getting new projects off the ground
My TED story
I curated TEDxKazimierz in 2015, I spoke at TEDxKrakow about running a global movement with no budget via a Facebook group, and at TEDxWrocław Salon about it never being too late (or early) to get into entrepreneurship
I've been sponsor, speaker, team member, co-organiser and supporter of or at
TEDxKrakow, TEDxKrakowCinema, TEDxYouth@Krakow, TEDxYouth@Podgorze, TEDxWarsawSalon, TEDxWarsawPresidentialPlace
I set up the TED and TEDx fans in Poland and the TED and TEDx Fans Travel and Meetup Club on Facebook which aims to bring Couchsurfing values and build community among TED and TEDx fans.
I use TED.com talks in enterprise workshops I run in schools and universities as a volunteer on the Polish committee for Global Entrepreneurship Week.
I believe TED is part of my optimistic vision of the way the world should be.
I interview TEDx-ers and TEDx speakers on my blog I like people who like TED. I've transcribed a TEDx talk for the Open Translation Project.
