Speaker & host

Since the mid-2000s, I have joined several hundred business events, all over Europe, Africa, Asia, and North America, taking on various roles.


I deliver speeches focused on sustainability, leadership, innovation, foreign direct investment, global business services and start-up ecosystems, and the macroeconomic conditions in emerging Europe.


I join panel discussions exploring the economic transformation in the emerging Europe region, foreign direct investment, global business services, nation branding, innovation and digitalisation, leadership, and start-ups.


I host international summits, business conferences, awards ceremonies, corporate events, discussions, chats, and concerts, both online and offline, in large halls and small rooms. And even in a salt mine, over 100 metres below sea level.



I moderate panel discussions and fireside chats with business, government, and world leaders. Topics range from innovation in energy, through the macroeconomic situation in emerging Europe to the future of capitalism. And I can do all three in the same day!

Take a look at some of my engagements and at what others have said about me.
