We met Nadia first as an Advisor to high profile family businesses and dignitaries in Ukraine and more recently in her capacity as an International Business Development professional linking businesses to opportunities between Europe, Middle East, Latin America and the USA.
Tell us about your challenges as a Business Development professional between different countries?
During my career I met with people from many different cultures and while some did business ethically, many did not and often went back on their word or looked for way that would give them gain and put others at a disadvantage.
In business there has to be mutual respect and a win win situation. I feel there is a general lack of attention to morality in the world of leadership today and that is the biggest challenge we face. The definition of morality needs to more aligned amongst business professionals globally.
How did your journey in the business world begin?
My career in the business world started together with my political career!
Fortunately both of these areas can work very closely together. You can’t have a success in social or justice if economic of your country very bad!
Following that I became an adviser to high profile family businesses, big companies and connecting them to opportunities abraod. Now I focus my time on Business Development and the International Organisation of Social Justice.
