For the last 10+ years, I’ve been living and working in Krakow (Poland), but I am originally from Kharkiv (Ukraine), which helps me to focus on cross-border, cultural and business-related disputes.
I received academic training in Sociology (Media Communications and PR) and did my specializing postgraduate program in Mediation and ADR. Later, I conducted several practical trainings in business negotiations and crisis intervention. As part of my previous jobs, I know how to engage, supervise, and facilitate parties for them to reach their business goals through mutually beneficial agreements.
Additionally, in response to the increased instability and insecurity, I engage in resolving intercultural conflicts; I also work with trauma and loss through self-regulation techniques. Since the situation in the world is quite volatile, I do hope to be able to help different people and/or businesses understand each other by using every skill I have.

Cross-border conflicts, technology and new process implementation, collaborative conflict management, contract negotiation, real estate.

During the past 23 years working as a social entrepreneur I built up (together with my business partners) a collective of 22 companies with a common denominator: Powered by Meaning Group. We believe that the world cannot live without entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship for coming up with solutions for tomorrow's problems. Furthermore I am appointed growth mentor at "NL Groeit" for scale ups in The Netherlands.
By working in this entrepreneurial environment, I learned the importance of mediation. The importance of understanding the multi-stakeholder beliefs, specific and common needs and interests. I have a wide experience with intra- and interorganizational collaborations (start-ups, scale ups and corporates and governmental organizations)
I’m a father of three children (10, 12 and 16 years old) and I am married to Sarah. Sarah runs a beautiful business called De Groeistudio to make sure that young professionals are capable to deal with stress and burn out challenges.
During my career as an entrepreneur in many situations I worked as a dealmaker or mediator (though I didn't know at that time that I was actually performing a mediation process. In the past 23 year years I had to experience 2 lawsuits and in both cases it was a very disappointing process and with disappointing results for all parties involved. Therefore I was looking for alternative ways to resolve disputes.
I will be able to help clients the best in commercial mediations. Conflicts between start ups, scale ups, corporates and/or governments. Also conflicts between private equity and ventures. Or in conflicts between shareholders. In a wide variety of sectors.
