Aleksandra (Ola) Potrykus-Majewska knows the struggle of finding a great external facilitator when stuck in a corporate procurement system. But she also knows what it’s like to set out and find work as a solo facilitator.
That’s why she co-founded WeWent, a kind of matchmaking service for facilitators and companies.
Combining her deep knowledge in both sides of the collaboration, and now with several years of experience with WeWent, Ola is perfectly-placed to help facilitators understand how they can better appeal to their clients and vice versa.
This episode is not to be missed if you are serious about offering facilitation as a service.
