For many years I was a lecturer at the University of Economics and Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. I have extensive consulting experience, including  consultant positions at the Institute of Logistics and Warehousing and W. Frąckowiak & Partners Consulting Company in Poznań. I have acted as “Business Angel” and the initiator of a number of technological start-ups.

My educational background includes Master degrees in Engineering and Language Studies and postgraduate management education at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, USA. I am a two-time Fulbright scholarship holder at Harvard University and University of California, Berkeley in the “Junior” and “Senior” categories, respectively.  I have been a visiting professor in many countries.


I live at the outskirts of Poznań. I am interested in non-conventional architecture, poetry and Latin American and Pan – American Cultures. I love sailing, playing tennis, flying by Cesna and skiing. I travel extensively around the World.
