I mostly worked with businesses creating collaboration for raising awareness on social problems, creating fundraising campaigns and organizing fundraising events. I am able and happy to build long-term relationships with partners, conduct any communication, attract resources for organization needs, come up with various promotions and campaigns, implement them both independently and jointly with other team members.
I’m a fan of the lifelong learning concept :) I finished Moscow Professional School of Philanthropy and different creativity courses, but always try to gain additional knowledge and learn from experience not only from colleagues from the NGO sector, but also from third-party specialists. I adore meet new people, learn languages, travelling and been in 31 countries.
