I was born, raised and educated in the Ukraine. No, not really, I was born in the Soviet Union and I think this played quite a large role in my future life and career. At 14 I moved out of my parentsâ€™ house to the nearest small town, to make use of the opportunity there to go the lyceum that was a bit better than a village school. That was definitely a step in the right direction and after some years I became a student at the Odessa State Economic University, where I took an active part in student organizations such as SIFE and AIESEC. These organizations opened up new worlds for me - Poland, Spain, Canadaand an extended traineeship in Slovakia later on.My first very interesting and challenging professional experience followed in the Ukraine, but international opportunities held a greater attraction for me so I chose an internshipin Germany in Deutsche Telecomâ€™s Corporate Procurement Strategy. There I got to know BrainNet for the first time. And here I am now.
At the time, BrainNet was building up supplier risk management at Deutsche Telecom. I wasnâ€™t yet part of the project then, but had a good opportunity to observe it while I was doing my internship. And I could picture myself quite well doing such a job â€“ getting to know new companies, seeing not the problems but the ways to solve them, and not just developing supply chain strategies, but achieving them. Naturally, I wanted to continue having international contact down the road of my future career path, and not lose touch with my Eastern European roots. So when my internship ended, BrainNet was my first choice.
Working with BrainNet means constantly generating ideas on how to reach a clientâ€™s goals. At BrainNet, I quickly learned, ideas matter.
Each personâ€™s individuality is the building material for a good and loyal collaboration. Weâ€™re here from different countries and cities, with different background and knowledge, and with different ideas and visions. We are implementing different projects in different industries but when we are all gathered together, the nice feeling of completion is shared by everyone in the big conference room.
