project manager, entepreneur
Railway engineering, software development, IT support, operations and executive management, entrepreneurship, project management. I have tried them all during 30 years of my professional life.

I also train people on project management tools and solutions.
I am interested in evolution as a natural way of continuous improvement, looking for evolutionary mechanisms outside the field of biology. This is also valid for project management - is there a space for evolutionary mechanisms or we have to base on intelligent design only?
Student, economist, organiser
I'm the student of 33 Bilingual High School in Warsaw. If I were to decide what virtue is the most important, without any doubts I would choose opened-mindness, as I firmly believe that's the key to a successful career and life. Thus I've been embroiled in organization of numerous projects, such as MUN and Moot Courts, which aim is to raise awareness about opportunities we as young people have in High School. On Tedx Copernicus I will be thrilled to talk about the ways we can influence the market and economy using the most powerful tool of our generation- Social Media.

I regularly publish for "Tygodnik Powszechny" and "Magazin TVN24", and from time to time in different newspapers. I have successfully written three books: "Mitologia Współczesna", "Władza wyobraźni" and "Powstanie umarłych", which was nominated for the Golden Rose award in category: The best popular science book, Długosz Award and Historical Award of the name of Kazimierz Moczarski.

I am the IB student of Copernicus Bilingual High School in Warsaw. I love public speaking, sharing my thoughts and arguing. I always fight until the final satisfying agreement is reached, but the most pleasant feeling for me is when I manage to open someone’s eyes at what they have never appreciated before – basically inspiring. Apart from that, I have a rich debating experience such as Debating Clubs, WLD, MUNs and a two year-long scholarship at Bronisław Geremek Foundation, which made my person more vulnerable and empathetic for global problems and social issues. Apart from that, another passion is languages.
I have always been an open-minded and curious person and probably the only one who loves to travel. Hence, on the upcoming event I would love to share my philosophy of travelling
