Founder & Chief Executive Officer

We believe in the power of education to change lives; that international exposure and engaging beyond one's traditional cultural comfort zone builds confidence and maturity. We are deeply committed to the idea that cross-cultural fluency, international savvy and a solid grounding in foreign languages will give tomorrow's change-makers a distinct competitive advantage in their future endeavors as leaders across different professions like business, diplomacy, law, journalism, public policy, politics, academia and international relations.


TEG’s educational program Kyiv Business & Diplomacy Leadership Academy is created for future leaders and young professionals who wish to develop leadership skills, gain international experience in communication with leaders and young reformers from Ukraine, study foreign language, get acquainted with the Ukrainian education system, visit numerous Kyiv government, policy, diplomatic and business institutions, and familiarize themselves with Ukrainian history and culture.
