Along with Interizon ICT Cluster, we would like to invite you to join us on 6th June 2017 at 6:00 PM at Klub Atelier for the third in a new series of 3camp powered by Interizon meetups aimed at bringing together those who came to Gdańsk, Gdynia or Sopot (Tricity) from all over the world and decided to work and live here.
At the meetup our guests will share knowledge about IT and related fields as well as talk about living in Tricity from an expat’s perspective.
THE MEETUP AGENDA
18:00 – 18:30 Olga Ivashchenko, Kainos, So alike and so different. Ukrainian living in Poland working for an Irish company
Talking about lifestyles, differences in work rhythm in IT in Ukraine and Poland. How tolerance at work is different than in everyday life. Working with foreigners and being a foreigner, communication skills I never thought will be useful. Lost in translation and where this can lead to when you’re misunderstood. Typing mastery that can become a superpower or a mess.
Olga has been living and working in Poland since 2014. For last 10 months, she’s been working as Test Engineer in Kainos Software. Sharing some personal experience of moving and integrating into everyday life of Tricity. Living a life near the sea that you can enjoy for one week in a year.

19:00 – 19:30 Dan Micu, Traveltricitypoland.com – Through The Eyes of a Foreigner Living in Gdańsk
The global village… Little did I as Belgian expect to end up in one of the most beautiful regions in Poland. I am Dan. I speak 3 languages on native level (Dutch, French, English) and 3 on communicative level (Spanish, German, Romanian). And Polish? Well… It’s bardzo trudny for me: work in progress!
I have been a teacher/trainer for more than 15 years in Belgian before I got to know a pretty Polish lady who kidnapped me here. At first I taught business English at the Polish Japanese Institute of Technology in Orunia. After that I entered the corporate life, first as accountant and at the moment as a web author.
Hope to see you on our next networking event.
