    Hey there! I'm Patrycja, but you can call me a business strategy whizz, a project management guru, or even an efficiency powerhouse. What sets me apart? Well, I've got the knack for thinking big picture while also rolling up my sleeves to get the job done. You could say I've got the brains of a coach and the brawn of an interim manager. At Accenture, one of the world's leading consulting bigwigs, I cut my teeth as a Manager, mastering the art of digital strategy and business consultancy. It was a wild ride, transforming innovative ideas into realities for a vast portfolio of clients across a bunch of sectors like Fintech, Healthcare, Insurance, and Telecoms. Since then, my journey has been full of highlights: • Playing the role of in-house consultant at Allianz, spotting growth opportunities, and making strategic moves to catapult the business ahead. • Diving headfirst into startup advisory, even spearheading a billion-dollar knowledge management strategy for a major firm in Saudi Arabia. • Being hailed as an "operations and execution machine" by a client who loved how I stepped into the role of COO, Head of Strategy, and Project/Product Manager with ease, propelling their innovation project forward with strategic task prioritization, resource allocation, and valuable guidance. "Very bright," "able to set the direction and manage the team," and "adapts easily to changing needs," were just some of the glowing remarks! Now, I'm all fired up to take on projects involving: • Business Growth & Scaling: Whether you're a startup, SME, or multinational behemoth, I'm your go-to for market expansion and successful growth hacking. • Operational Efficiency & Process Optimization: Looking to streamline your business processes, enhance operational efficiency, and optimize resource utilization? I've got you covered! • Go-to-Market (GTM) Strategies & Product Launches: From developing robust GTM strategies to analyzing competitors, I know the product launch game inside out. • Feasibility Studies & Market Analysis: New to the market? No worries! I'll help you out with comprehensive market research, competitor benchmarking, and feasibility studies. • Project Management & Agile Methodologies: If you need someone to lead your strategic projects from start to finish, aligning everything with your business objectives, you've found your match. With this unique blend of big thinking and hands-on expertise, I've become an indispensable asset to an eclectic mix of businesses - from budding startups to Fortune 500 giants. And yes, I'm ranked among the top 1% in the consulting category on Upwork - pretty cool, right? So, whether you need a strategic advisor, interim COO, growth hacker, project manager, or hands-on consultant, I'm ready to bring my dynamic skills to your table. Let's connect and craft something incredible together! Cheers, Patrycja

I’ve also coached/mentored numerous individuals and teams, that improved their skills, and increased their productivity and effectiveness. If you are starting a new venture, launching a product, or raising capital, you must have a concept that the market needs and a clear plan. If you are growing, diversifying, pivoting, or re-engineering an existing business, you must have achievable goals and an executable plan. Whether you are starting or growing, I’ll work with you to develop strategies, plans, and materials that work. Some Major Accomplishments In the corporate world: as Manager of Commercial Systems Marketing with Intel, developed strategic plans for US and European growth, and set up a marketing group in Europe; as co-founder and Executive Vice President, started an international company that my partner and I sold to a Fortune 500 company; as VP of Marketing & Sales, took a small company from losing $1M/yr. to profitability and a buyout in less than 12 months. As a Private Consultant to more than 175 companies (to date): wrote a journal article that resulted in more than $10M in RFQs; led a solar energy company through their launch, the release of their first product, and their initial funding raise; worked with a software company management team to reengineer the company to be marketing driven; worked with the founder to launch a disruptive SaaS platform in the automotive industry; helped a private equity firm assess potential acquisitions and mergers; worked with a founder to transform a small B2C company into the world's largest B2B licensor of digital art.

The information sector is clearly the one I prefer working on, evaluating information, giving it a structure and assuring its long life is what I do. I've been involved in huge data-entry projects, I've prepared a company for it's ISO 9001 certification, writing the procedure's manual and redefining tasks and times, all this was developed in parallel with an Intranet built with Plone that allowed all participants to be informed and perform its task along the process. I'm kind of a computer lover and I'm familiar with most common tools and programs. The ones I don't know, I learn. For the last 2 years and a half, I've specialized in Agile Project Management and Operations Management. My +20 years of experience gave me a lot of tools that I use proudly. I'm a native Portuguese, and I speak English and Spanish fluently. I also understand and read Italian and French. I'm always enthusiastic about an edge project, that is challenging and different.

    I am THE INTEGRATOR & the DRIVER of your company. I can run your business smoothly. “An Integrator is the person who is the tiebreaker for the leadership team, is the glue for the organization, holds everything together, beats the drum (provides cadence), is accountable for the P&L results, executes the business plan, holds the Leadership Team accountable, and is the steady force in the organization. The Integrator also creates organizational clarity, communication, and consistency; typically (but not always) operates more on logic; drives results; forces resolution, focus, team unity, prioritization and follow-through; is the filter for all of the Visionary’s ideas; harmoniously integrates the Leadership Team; and helps to remove obstacles and barriers.” An Integrator “gets” the Visionary while also empathizing with and understanding Technicians need for details. An Integrator’s “gift” is the ability to speak both languages, translating the Visionary’s “big idea” into realistic, actionable plans that Technicians can execute. Integrators are the perfect blend of execution, communication, people skills and general business knowledge. Drivers are best recognized for being: Acting-oriented andTask-focused. The key “markers” or behaviors of the Driver Profile include: • Communicating with a focused, intense style • Handling conflict by directly confronting the issue • Delegating by “directing” the course of action • Planning through an urgent, adaptive approach • Learning with active, “big picture” understanding I value a job that uses practical applications of knowledge and appreciate having the opportunity to be inventive and pragmatic in any approach. I seek adventurous opportunities that exercise my assertive and risk-taking qualities. I do not shy away from competitive environments and in fact, often thrive in leadership roles that require me to influence and persuade others. I prefer debating ideas, managing people/projects and giving presentations. I am productive in environments that are organized and structured, offering clear lines of authority and product-driven. The best job experience for me is one that is "Bottom-line" focused and results-oriented. I tend to rely most heavily on rational thinking skills to come to conclusions. Prefer to use facts to justify an action instead of persuasive acumen and I am more comfortable stepping back from situation at hand and analyzing it without letting my own personal perspective influence my decisions. I am excellent when it comes to making objective analyses ; I have an excellent ability to evaluate the logical effects of different strategic moves and then choose an approach decisively and calmly. • I am a strong individual; I am frank, self-reliant, productive, concrete in my thinking style. • Like to lead, influence, direct or manage people for organizational goals or economic gain. • Appreciate status and power and I’m highly driven to attain leadership roles. • Seek practical accomplishments and appreciate rules. I enjoy work environments that are active and driven towards an end that brings value to the organization. I may be drawn to work environments that promote “friendly” competition among peers and reward associates based on performance, contributions and the value they offer.
