“How to summarize 8 years of outstanding business partnership in just 3 words? It’s not easy; I’ll try tough. I met Ms. Elwira Kostka at a very early stage of my career, as a young and promising Brand Executive, taking first steps in the corporate world. From those early days she truly believed in me; we started to work together; a few projects followed. Each time Ms. Elwira supported me with her professional feedback and advice, giving me lots of support. Finally, thanks to her offer and guidance, I made a major turnaround in my career; 2 months ago I took up the challenge of a big role at Nutricia Poland. What made our co-operation so successful? Of course Ms. Elwira’s priceless expertise, great network, credibility and – not to forget – her legendary social skills 🙂
