Milan Hosta, PhD
"Working internationally in academia, private business, and NGO provides me with valuable insights and understanding of workplace dynamics and balance in personal life and parenting. I have first and second-hand experience in organizational development, change management, cause marketing, human resource development, training of trainers, lobbying, and formal and informal leadership. I have worked in highly rewarding set-ups, been through business failure, and was also in a position to hire and fire people."
